2013 Kawasaki Vulcan® 1700 Nomad™ — Contact Dealer for Pricing


The Vulcan® 1700 Nomad™ has a powerful 1,700cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine, six-speed transmission for relaxed cruising, as well as electronic cruise control that works with the electronic throttle valve system for precision, and a low 28.7-inch seat. Vulcan® 1700 Nomad™ can be the perfect companion for touring or just cruising down the boulevard. This flexibility means it can be many things to different riders. For some it’s a full-blown touring bike, its windshield, hard saddlebags, floorboards, backrest and standard cruise control taking the sting out of long days in the saddle.
