The Vaquero has the long haul comfort, wll the features and enough attitude to keep you riding for years. With a name drawn from American cowboy history, the Kawasaki Vulcan Vaquero will have you saddling up for many long hours of enjoying the road flowing under your tyres.
Long-stroke, liquid cooled, SOHC, 8-valve 1,700 cm3 V-Twin engine was designed to deliver high levels of torque.
Bore and stroke measure 102 x 104 mm.
Muscular front cowling and smoked wind deflector, key bagger styling elements, offer protection from the wind and weather. Mounting the cowl to the frame rather than the handle-bars contributes to light handling and minimises the effect of wind buffeting.
Capacious side bags are curved on the top and flat on the bottom – a design that lends itself well to the bagger styling. The side bags open to the side and feature minimalist latches. Each offers 35 litres of storage space.
Instrument layout & large round dials give the console a sporty appearance.
