Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero ABS review

We went to test the Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero ABS with reviews in mind.

  1. Size of the handlebars and spread of buttons. The rider should have big hands to easily reach them. In line with this, the bodywork and design of the bike is what catches our attention it’s something suitable for a big muscled man. However, Vulcan 1700 Vaquero ABS is loved by mid-size men who want the feeling of riding a big bike though.
  2. Vulcan 1700 Vaquero ABS shows its stability even when reaching 100 mph. With its weight of approximately 850 pounds without any loads except for fluids and torque at 2750 rpm it can go well with Harley Davidson Motorcycle. The motor workout just fine and we are impressed with its good brakes.
  3. The bike is quiet don’t expect Harleys like sounds. Riding was very smooth when approaching near 300rpm but going lower is does not give that much excitement.
  4. Suspension did its job very well and absorbs all the pavements we went through. The tires impressively handled the weight of the bike. Its constant speed never goes out of control from the beginning and the end of our travel.

We never tried a long ride with a motorcycle before but we just did it using Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero ABS. It was an unforgettable touring experience we did in order to discover the power and performance of a true cruiser.

What we like about Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero ABS is its tranquillity, full fairing for additional safety and the comfortable cushioned seat.
