Standard Features

New for 2010
 Improved exhaust pipe heat shielding reduces radiant heat felt by the rider  
 Improved radiator ducting helps keep heat away from the rider’s right leg  
 A 5 mm shorter coolant pipe makes it possible to remove the pipe without removing the alternator cover, simplifying oil-screen maintenance  
Adjustable Windscreen
 Adjustable handlebar-mounted optically correct windscreen is shaped for optimum airflow management without compromising the Nomad’s cruiser styling  
 Strong chrome plated steel supports  
 2-position height  
 Sub-windshield and deflectors further increase wind protection performance  
 The sub-windshield covers the area between the windshield and headlight when the windshield is in the raised position and the fork-mounted deflectors help direct air away from the rider’s legs  
Touring Seats and Passenger Backrest
 Rider and passenger seats are sculpted for greater all-day support  
 Sturdy backrest with integrated passenger grab bars contributes to passenger confidence  
 As a final contribution to passenger comfort, the Nomad features passenger floorboards  
Hard, Lockable Side Cases
 The Nomad features hard, lockable, top-opening side cases that each provide 10 gal. (38 l) of sealed storage space for overnight touring  
 Front and rear guards on the Nomad help protect the bike’s engine and hard side cases in the event of a tip-over  
 Helmet locks are conveniently located on the left and right-side saddlebag guards  
Powerful 1,700 cc, V-twin Engine
 Liquid-cooled, 4-valves per cylinder, fuel-injected, 1,700 cc, 52° V-twin engine  
 Long stroke 102 x 104 mm bore and stroke helps deliver high levels of torque with a distinct V-twin feel  
 Valve system is based on the Vulcan 2000, but uses a single overhead cam arrangement instead of pushrods, for quicker revving and enhanced mid-high rpm power  
 Semi-dry sump allows a lower crankshaft placement and a longer piston stroke without increasing engine height  
 Single-pin crank accentuates the engine’s V-twin character by providing stronger power-pulses  
 Large capacity airbox is located on both sides of the engine  
 Small diameter iridium sparkplugs reach deep into the combustion chamber for high combustion efficiency, especially during low-load operation  
 Features dual mufflers, 1 on each side of the bike, to allow maximum clearance for luggage  
 Engine tuning offers superior acceleration in the 50 - 70 mph range  
 Even in overdrive, the engine pulls strongly in this speed range, facilitating overtaking at highway speeds  
Next Generation FI
 Based on the systems used by the Ninja® 650R and Vulcan 900 motorcycles  
 Utilizes 1 sensor in place of the usual 3, for reduced complexity and weight  
 The touring-oriented Nomad utilizes FI and exhaust systems which are tuned to reach peak torque and horsepower at a higher rpm than the engines used in standard Vulcan 1700 cruisers  
On Board Diagnostics
 Diagnostic system allows self testing of the electronic systems on the Vulcan 1700  
 Displays codes on the instrumentation, which can be read by owner; using accessory manual  
Electronic Throttle Valve System
 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  
 From the rider’s perspective, the ETV works like a standard cable-operated throttle, the throttle grip is still connected to cables, so the feel at the grip is the same  
 Twisting the throttle turns a pulley on the throttle body which 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 2 sets of signals to the ECU for system redundancy in the unlikely event of a sensor failure  
Cruise Control
 The cruise control can be engaged and adjusted entirely from the right handlebar  
 Cruise control can be activated in 3rd gear or above at any speed between 30 mph and 85 mph  
 Pressure on the brake lever, clutch lever or rear brake pedal will automatically disengage the cruise control, as will manually rolling-off the throttle  
6-speed Transmission / Final Drive
 6-speed transmission with positive neutral finder  
 5th and 6th are overdrive gears for excellent fuel economy when cruising at highway speeds  
 28 mm carbon fiber final drive belt offers a 40% increase in tensile strength compared to current Kevlar belts, allowing the Vulcan 1700 to use a slim belt only 2 mm wider than the Kevlar unit on the Vulcan 900  
 Belt drive system is quiet, efficient and offers reduced maintenance compared to a chain  
Light Handling Chassis
 The frame features a short wheelbase, for great rider ergonomics and easy maneuverability  
 As light and slim as possible, the frame minimizes the number of forged parts and trims any unnecessary metal  
 The only forged parts are areas that require additional strength - the down-tube joint, engine brackets, side-stand bracket, and rear fender / shock absorber bracket  
 The compact design contributes to light handling and facilitates handling at low speeds, especially when executing precise slow speed maneuvers like parking or making U-turns  
43 mm Telescopic Fork
 Provides superb steering feedback  
 5.5 in. of travel for excellent ride quality  
Dual Adjustable Rear Air Shocks
 Air adjustable shocks can be tuned to match varying rider and passenger loads  
 4-way rebound damping adjustments help the shocks compensate for changes in spring pressure  
 Feature chromed shock covers, contributing the luxurious finish of the rear of the bike  
9-spoke Cast Wheels
 Allow the use of tubeless tires and complement the Nomad’s styling  
 130/90 front and 170/70 rear radial tires  
 Tire choice and suspension settings selected to augment the chassis’ light handling characteristics  
Classic V-twin Styling
 Basic architecture has a significant impact on a V-twin engine’s appearance  
 The line created by the top of the airbox and the cylinder heads forms a curved shape that continues to flow through the bike  
 Deeply chromed engine covers have curved upper surfaces. Their 3-dimensional form adds volume and gives a high quality appearance  
 The edges of the cooling fins receive a special NC treatment that makes them gleam in sunlight  
 All the non-chromed parts of the engine have a matt Black finish that to accentuate the gleaming chrome  
 The fuel tank’s hand-sculpted contours employ constantly varying radii, giving the bike a dynamic flowing style which is pleasing both to the eye and to the touch  
 Its lines flowing through the rest of the bike, the elegantly shaped fuel tank contributes to the Nomad’s curvaceous figure  
 Design motif from the front fender continues through the rear fender, which features an elegant LED taillight  
 Ignition switch allows on-position key removal; preventing key bunches from scratching the instrument cluster or tank while the bike is in operation  
 Turning the ignition switch to the “OFF” position turns the engine off and necessitates re-insertion of the key to restart  
 Multi-function LCD displays on the tank-mounted instrument cluster are controlled by switches on the right handle. Features include a gear position indicator, fuel gauge, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, remaining range and average fuel consumption  
 Liberal use of chrome on the engine, fender brackets, light stays, saddlebag accents and front and rear guards, contrasts nicely with the bodywork’s deep, lustrous paint  
 Simple design of the seat cover balances rich visual tone of the bodywork
