2012 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic ABS

2012 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic ABS
The Vulcan 1700 Classic is also fitted with Kawasaki's first fully electronic throttle valve system that provides better performance, throttle response and increased fuel mileage. It's all finished off with bodywork and engine covers that further distinguish the Vulcan 1700 Classic ABS as Kawasaki's latest big bore cruiser.

2012 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic Features and Benefits
Key Features

• Fuel injection system optimized for power in the low
• to mid-rpm range
• Compact frame for easy maneuverability and handling
• Electronic throttle valve system helps produce smooth power
• Adjustable rear suspension
• 9-spoke cast wheels add to the classic V-twin look and feel
• Instrumentation includes digital LCD screen that displays a wealth of information

Powerful 1,700cc V-twin engine
• Fully electronic throttle actuation system enables the ECU to control the volume of intake air (via throttle valve angle) and fuel (via fuel injector timing) delivered to the engine
• Optimized fuel injector timing and throttle valve position results in accurate, powerful engine response
• Control of both fuel injection and airflow provides easy starting and precise cold-engine idle speed control
• The ETV works like a standard cable-operated throttle; the throttle grip is connected to cables, so the feel at the grip for the rider is the same
• Twisting the throttle turns a pulley on the throttle body that triggers the Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) to send a signal to the ECU, which then modulates the throttle valves via a DC motor
• Accurate throttle position is relayed to the ECU by a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)
• APS and TPS send two sets of signals to the ECU for system redundancy in the unlikely event of a sensor failure
