New Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic LT 2011

Authentic Kawasaki Accessories are available through Kawasaki dealers. Careful attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship of the engine covers, bodywork and those beautiful saddlebags add up to a motorcycle that turns heads whether it’s parked in your garage or cruising down the highway. Technologically modern though it may be, the Vulcan 1700 Classic LT is still infused with all the charm and visual appeal that’s expected from a Kawasaki cruiser. The Vulcan 1700 Classic LT also features a liquid-cooled alternator with rare-earth metals that produces a staggering 46.8 amps of electrical output, providing the 1700 Classic LT with more than enough current to power additional accessories.

Dual 300mm front disc brakes with twin piston calipers and a 300mm rear disc brake with a two-piston caliper help bring this stylish machine to sure, powerful stops. A 130/90 front and a 170/70 rear are mounted on those attractive wheels. The LT rolls on nine-spoke cast wheels, which use tubeless tires and complement its open road character. Up front, a large 43mm fork offers precise steering feedback and 5.5 inches of travel.

An elegantly simple rear swingarm with twin air assisted shocks provides 3.1 inches of rear suspension travel, and features air spring preload and four-way rebound adjustment. Adding to the light and easy handling are suspension components that match the Vulcan 1700 Classic LT’s intended usage. Those easy reach handlebars facilitate slow speed maneuvering and help maximize rider confidence.  Designed to be as light and slim as possible, the Classic LT’s single backbone double cradle frame offers a short seat to steering head distance, with a correspondingly short wheelbase.
