Feature-rich, AM/FM/WB audio system with iPod® and SiriusXM® radio compatibility is standard equipment
Twin tapered mufflers maximize saddlebag capacity and improve the engine’s power delivery
Powerful 1,700 cc V-twin engine
Fuel-injected, 52 degree, 1,700 cc V-twin is liquid-cooled and features 4 valves per cylinder
Long stroke 102 x 104 mm bore and stroke dimensions deliver high torque levels with a powerful and distinct V-twin feel
Valve-actuation system uses a single overhead cam arrangement instead of pushrods for quicker revving and enhanced mid-high rpm power
Semi-dry sump design allows lower crankshaft positioning and a longer piston stroke without increasing engine height
Single-pin crankshaft accentuates the engine’s V-twin character by providing strong 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
Engine tuning, combined with long-stroke design, offers superior acceleration in the 50 - 70 mph range
Ample power in overdrive (5th and 6th gears) to make highway passing easy
Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®)
Dual 42 mm throttle bodies with atomizing fuel injectors produce a fine fuel mist for better combustion and fuel consumption
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 injector timing and throttle valve position results in accurate, powerful engine response
Control of both injection and airflow provides easy starting and precise cold-engine idle speed control
From the rider’s perspective, the ETV system works like a standard cable-operated throttle; the throttle grip remains 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
Electronic Cruise Control System
When activated, the system maintains a desired speed
Cruise control can be engaged and adjusted entirely from the right handlebar
Cruise system 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 automatically disengages the cruise control, as does manually rolling off the throttle

Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-braking Technology (K-ACT II) ABS
Vaquero ABS features Kawasaki’s sophisticated K-ACT II system, which helps riders to execute balanced braking. Designed to complement the riders’ brake inputs, the system distributes the ideal amount of brake pressure to maximize braking efficiency.
Low battery mode maintains ABS function while reducing signal frequency to conserve power when needed
For increased controllability in tight parking lots and when executing U-turns, K-ACT II’s coactive function does not engage when braking is initiated at speeds below 12 mph
ABS function is disengaged at speeds below 4 mph, such as when in your home garage
Dual 300 mm front disc brakes with 4-piston calipers and a 2-piston rear disc brake for sure, powerful stops

Styling and Bodywork
Basic engine architecture supports the Vaquero’s factory-custom look, while its blacked-out color with machined and bare-aluminum accents sets off the bike’s color scheme
Gloss and matte finishes on the engine highlight aesthetics even further
Hand-formed body shapes create a highly customized appearance
Many of the parts are exclusive to the Vaquero, which add to its factory-custom look and feel. These include the engine shrouds, rear fender, 1-piece side covers, saddlebags, fairing and seat.
Front fairing looks like a true custom piece, right down to the abbreviated smoked windscreen and color-matched headlight cover
Sculpted strut covers seamlessly fill the space between the rear fender and saddlebags
Mufflers are tapered at their ends for a thoroughly retro look
Sculpted, custom-look seat looks good and cradles the rider for maximum comfort
LED taillight is attractive and highly conspicuous when lit
Wind Protection
Large, wide fairing with abbreviated windscreen provides substantial wind and weather protection for the rider
With the fairing mounted directly to the frame, any wind buffeting is transferred to the bike rather than the handlebar, helping to enhance highway stability and reduce rider fatigue
Convenient Storage
Vaquero features hard, lockable and sealed, side-opening side cases that provide nearly 10 gal. of storage space each for overnight touring
The flowing, rounded shape is an attractive alternative to the square, boxy luggage found on other bagger models
