2014 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad: Retro Style Meets Modern Technology
Yet another Kawasaki cruiser is making waves with its 2014 model. The brand, best known for its off-road bikes, has created a throwback touring cruiser that many fans of classic motorcycles should find appealing. The 2014 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad features a blend of power, style and extras that make it one of the most attractive new cruisers on the market. An impressive array of extras, as well as an imposing style, make this bike one of the 2014 creations to watch, and its offerings should not be overlooked.
This Kawasaki motorcycle is propelled by a four-stroke, liquid-cooled engine with a displacement of 1,700 cc. With smooth power distribution, you can accelerate quickly and easily, but the six-speed transmission allows you to pass other motorists and traverse the highway without shifting into overdrive. The ability to reach 108 foot-pounds of torque at just 2,750 rpm is another advantage, and riders should be able to expertly use the power output to keep cruising.
Just one look at the 2014 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad can bring you back to the days of classic motorcycles and retro style. The machine features a 65.6-inch wheelbase, but that doesn’t stop it from expertly handling the twists and turns of the roads. In fact, it’s a sporty motorcycle that is well-suited for the rigors of the road, thanks to an ergonomic design that prioritizes handling and agility. It also has the Kawasaki Advanced Coactive Braking Technology, which was created to balance braking and maximize efficiency in each individual situation, improving the feel and security of the bike.
Despite the classic design of the Vulcan, the motorcycle boasts an impressive collection of modern amenities that riders will enjoy. Anti-lock brakes allow riders to handle themselves around the curves of the open road, while electronic cruise control and a neutral-finder for stops make for a more carefree ownership experience. Weatherproof storage containers provide plenty of space for motorcycle gear and other necessities required for long trips.
Touring is easy on the back of the 2014 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad. The system is fed by a 5.3-gallon fuel tank, which is more than enough to keep riders on the roads for hours, and with additions like a full-sized windshield, floorboards and a backrest, it’s easy to get comfortable on the back of the bike.
