The Kawasaki VN1700 Voyager is the world’s first Japanese fully dressed v-twin cruiser that is packed with features to offer the ultimate in rider comfort and control.
Packed with the latest Kawasaki rider aids and built for comfort, the large windscreen and front cowling protect rider and passenger from wind and elements.
With the front cowling mounted to the frame, any wind buffeting is transferred to the bike rather than the handlebars, contributing to reduced rider fatigue on long trips. Leg shields have air vents that allow airflow to the legs to be adjusted.
The Kawasaki VN1700 Voyager’s 50 litre lockable rear storage box is large enough to fit two full-face helmets. Top-opening panniers are also sealed and lockable, with a volume of 38 litres each. Up front, lockable glove boxes provide a handy place for storing small items and accessories.
An iPod jack (optional connector required) is located in the left-side glove box.
A Sculpted seat designed for both comfort and easy reach to the ground. Upright riding position and floorboard contribute to all-day touring comfort. Roomy passenger seat is complemented by padding on the rear box that provides back and arm support.
It's like travelling in your favourite armchair with enogh carrying capacity that will allow you to take the kitchen sink.

K-ACT (Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-braking Technology) ABS enables riders to execute controlled, balanced braking. Designed to complement riders’ applied brake force, K-ACT ABS ensures ideal brake force distribution to maximise braking efficiency.
The VN1700 Voyager is one of the first cruiser models to benefit from the fully electronic throttle actuation system that enables the ECU to control the volume of both the fuel and the air delivered to the engine. Ideal fuel injection and throttle valve position results in smooth, natural engine response.
Operation of the cruise control is conveniently from the right handlebar. Cruise control can be activated between 30 and 85 mph in 3rd gear or above. Operating the brake lever, clutch lever or rear brake pedal causes the cruise control to be disengaged. Closing the throttle beyond the “zero-throttle” position is another instinctive way to disengage the cruise control.
Multi-function LCD display in the centre of the instrument console is controlled by switches on the right handlebar. Features include a odometer, dual trip meters, gear position indicator, clock, remaining fuel range and average fuel consumption. Audio system with twin speakers features radio and compatibility with an iPod or XM tuner. (Sorry, no dvd player)
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. Torque is approximately 15% greater than that of the VN1600D. Valve system is based on that of the VN2000, but uses a SOHC arrangement instead of OHV for more direct engine feel.
