VN1700 Voyager

This bike is located at Vauxhall


The most complete metric full dress V-twin tourer available, the highly specified VN1700 Voyager is the perfect place to realise your long distance motorcycling ambitions.


Powerful 1700cc V-Twin engine

Long-stroke, liquid cooled, SOHC, 8-valve 1,700 cm3 V-Twin engine was designed to deliver high levels of torque. The valve system is based on that of the VN2000, but uses a SOHC arrangement instead of OHV for more direct engine feel and easier merging onto motorways.

ETV (Electronic Throttle Valve) System

Kawasaki’s first fully electronic throttle actuation system enables the ECU to control the volume of both the fuel (via fuel injectors) and the air (via throttle valves) delivered to the engine. Ideal fuel injection and throttle valve position results in smooth, natural engine response. Control of both fuel injection and airflow also enables precise cold-engine idling speed control.


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.

Wind protection

A large windscreen and front cowling protect the 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.

iPod compatible audio system

Multi-function LCD display in the centre of the instrument console is controlled by switches on the right handlebar. Features include a gear position indicator, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, remaining range and average fuel consumption. Audio system with twin speakers features radio and compatibility with an iPod.


The sculpted seat is designed for both comfort and makes it easy to reach to the ground. In addition, the upright riding position and floorboards contribute to all-day touring comfort. A roomy passenger seat is complemented by padding on the trunk that provides back and arm support.

6-speed transmission with overdrive

6th gear is an overdrive gear, contributing to stress-free riding and better fuel economy when cruising at motorway speeds.

126-litre storage capacity

50 litre lockable topox 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.

Cruise control

Operation of the cruise control is conveniently from the right handlebar cluster. Cruise control can be activated between 30 mph (47 km/h) and 85 mph (137 km/h where permissable) 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 completely is another instinctive way to disengage the cruise control.
