kAWASAKI vn1700 classic 2016 (VN1700-fef)

Kawasaki VN1700 Classic

This is the one to be seen on, the new Kawasaki VN1700 Classic, a motorcycle with a lot of savvy, from the low seat height to easy to operate controls (even self cancelling indicators no less), this bike oozes torque from the big-bore V-twin engine as soon as you fire it up.

Do not let the retro look fool you, the VN1700 Classic is loaded with modern technology such as electronic fuel injection for awesome power and clean emissions, modern geometrics and suspension units are utilised to offer a well balanced and smooth handling package.

It pulls like a locomotive from low in the rev range, and with the supple front and rear suspension, you can ride this bike all day in total comfort.

For those of you looking for all of those creature comforts as standard, the Kawasaki VN1700 Classic Tourer comes as standard with a large screen, hard luggage and several further extras.
