Kawasaki revealed the complete details on its 2012 VN1700 Classic Tourer. The bike features Kawasaki’s first fully electronic throttle actuation system that will enable the ECU to manage the volume of both the fuel (via fuel injectors) and the air (via throttle valves) brought to the engine. This system improves the engine’s response and also makes it significantly smoother.
Talking about the engine, the bike is propelled by a long-stroke, liquid cooled, SOHC, 8-valve 1,700 cm3 V-Twin unit which cranks out 73 PS @ 5,000 rpm and 136 Nm of torque at 2,750 rpm.
The Kawasaki VN1700 Classic Tourer features a classic design built with comfort in mind. Thereby it comes with a perfect seat height, an ergonomic handlebar position and a practical handlebar-mounted windscreen. To further protect you from the wind, the bike is also fitted with a sub-windscreen and deflectors.
