2010 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Voyager Review


The motorcycle market continues to feel the ill effects of a depressing recession, but one of the few brightish spots is the touring-cruiser segment. Well-heeled riders are able to satisfy their visions of hitting the open road, most of them choosing among several models in Harley-Davidson's catalog, as well as Victory's well-received Cross Country and Cross Roads.

Somewhat lost in the luxury T-C niche is Kawasaki's Voyager. Debuting in 2009 alongside the Vulcan 1700 it is based on, the Voyager is a bagger in the mold of a Harley Electra Glide or Road Glide. The formula is a thumping V-Twin stuck in a cruiser chassis and fitted with a half fairing, plush seats and several luxury and convenience items.

Kawasaki has ticked all the right boxes when it built the Voyager. Its 103.7-cubic-inch 52-degree V-Twin outmuscles the Motor Company's 96-incher, combining more displacement with modern features like 4-valve heads and liquid-cooled upper cylinders. The Vulcan 1700-based mill belts out a claimed 108 ft-lb at 2750 rpm versus the Harley's 93 ft-lb at a higher 3500 rpm.
