Instruments

Instruments

Ignition switch allows on-position key removal, preventing key bunches from damaging the instrument cluster or tank while the bike is in operation. Turning the ignition switch collar to the “OFF” position turns the engine off and necessitates re-insertion of the key to restart. 

Electronic Throttle Valve system

Electronic Throttle Valve system

Kawasaki’s first fully electronic throttle actuation system enables the ECU to control the volume of both the fuel (via fuel injectors) and the air (via throttle valves) delivered to the engine. Ideal fuel injection and throttle valve position results in smooth, natural engine response. Control of both fuel injection and airflow also enables precise cold-engine idling speed control.

Windscreen

Windscreen

The Vulcan 1700 Nomad adds wind protection care of an adjustable handlebar-mounted windscreen. A sub-windscreen and deflectors on the Vulcan 1700 Nomad further increase wind protection performance.

Hard panniers
