W hat turns heads the same way a Harley does? What can get you there more comfortably? The new 2009 Kawasaki Vulcan Voyager 1700cc flagship tourer. With 100 more cubic centimeters than the '08 1600 - which equals 15% more torque and 20% more horsepower - this rolling La-Z-Boy moves.

Power usually isn't what road-trippers are after, but why not be comfortable, and get there with plenty to spare? With arm and backrests for the passenger, a trunk big enough to fit two full-sized helmets and an audio system supporting anything from AM to XM, the Voyager is true to its name. Other improvements like the new carbon-fiber final drive belt allows for weight and size reduction.

2009 Kawaski Vulcan 1700 Voyager

D esigned for riders who set their sights beyond the horizon, Kawasaki’s new Vulcan 1700 Voyager offers everything needed for long-distance touring with or without a passenger. Kawasaki’s first full-dress V-Twin touring motorcycle, the new Voyager features a large frame-mounted front fairing, ample storage, and a powerful new long-stroke 1700cc, liquid-cooled, 50° V-Twin engine.

Flagship of the new Vulcan 1700 family, the new Voyager is loaded with modern technology. Its standard equipment list includes Kawasaki’s first fully Electronic Throttle Valve system (ETV), Kawasaki Advanced Coactive Braking Technology (K-ACT) ABS system, electronic cruise control, multi-function instrumentation and an audio system that’s compatible with iPod®, MP3 players and other audio devices.

This touring cruiser’s cutting-edge technology is headlined by Kawasaki’s sophisticated new Kawasaki Advanced Coactive Braking Technology (K-ACT) system which helps riders apply controlled, balanced brake pressure. Available on the ABS equipped Voyager, the new K-ACT system is designed to complement the rider’s braking inputs, and utilizes control valves to distribute the ideal amount of brake force for maximum stopping performance.

With input from pressure and speed sensors, the brake ECU sends directions to the motor-driven hydraulic pumps so they deliver the proper amount of pressure to the brake calipers.

This speed sensitive system provides progressive engagement and disengagement and delivers a natural feel to the rider. The advanced anti-lock braking (ABS) functions incorporated into the K-ACT system prevent the wheels from locking and overall braking performance rivals the best ABS systems on the market.

For maximum control in tight corners and when executing parking lot maneuvers, K-ACT’s coactive function does not engage when braking is initiated at speeds below 12mph and the ABS function is automatically disengaged at speeds below 4mph. Two sturdy 300mm front brake discs with four-piston calipers and a single rear disc brake with a two-piston caliper provide ample stopping power.

More unique technology is found in Kawasaki’s new fully electronic throttle valve system which makes its debut on the all-new Voyager. Working with the rest of the fuel injection system, the electronic throttle valve helps to enhance the engine’s response without detracting from its distinctive V-twin feel. It also helps the ECU to deliver an ultra-precise metering of intake airflow and more-accurate idle speed control.

The system utilizes an Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) and a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). Both units feed data to the ECU, which adjusts the throttle plates to tailor intake airflow accordingly.
