2010 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic
Like the systems in use on the Ninja 650R and Vulcan 900 motorcycles, the 1700 Classic’s fuel injection uses one sensor in The system offers a natural throttle feel, because the APS is activated by a throttle body pulley that’s connected by cables to the throttle grip. Both units feed data to the ECU, which adjusts the throttle plates to tailor intake airflow accordingly. The system utilizes an Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) and a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).
Working with a powerful ECU and the rest of the fuel injection system, the electronic throttle valve enhances response without detracting from its distinctive V-twin feel--delivering ultra-precise intake flow to the engine under nearly any conditions. Kawasaki’s fully electronic throttle valve system feeds that big V-twin exactly what it needs. The engine’s long-stroke design, high compression and large displacement produce massive amounts of quick-revving torque, all of it delivered with a distinct V-twin character. The Vulcan 1700 Classic V-twin uses a single overhead cam in each cylinder head, rather than a push-rod overhead-valve arrangement, to boost efficiency and provide quick acceleration and superior passing performance.
Witness Exhibit A: The Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic combines things like the latest electronic throttle technology feeding a visceral overhead-cam V-twin, with a dose of old-fashioned cruiser simplicity that lets the rider focus on the experience and not the machine, mile after reliable mile. As a matter of fact, just the opposite. Retro and Techno come together to create one Timeless Cruiser At Kawasaki, we don’t believe classic looks and high technology need to be mutually exclusive.
