Interior Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic LT 2011

The Classic LT transfers torque from the transmission to the rear Mated to that rumbling V-twin engine, a six speed transmission featuring overdriven fifth and sixth gears contributes to a relaxed ride and better fuel economy at highway speeds. This cruising-oriented machine features FI and exhaust system tuning that has been optimized to deliver peak torque at a lower rpm ideal for urban and back road environments. Besides the obvious FI advantages like improved fuel economy and automatic adjustment for altitude changes, the system also permits easy hands off warm up and idle speed control.

Like the systems in use on the Ninja® 650R and Vulcan 900 motorcycles, the Classic LT’s fuel injection uses one sensor in place of the usual three, for less complexity and weight. The system offers a natural throttle feel, because the APS is activated by a throttle body pulley that’s connected by cables to the throttle grip. Both units feed data to the ECU, which adjusts the throttle plates to tailor intake airflow accordingly. The system utilizes an Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) and a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).

Working with a powerful ECU and the rest of the fuel injection system, the electronic throttle valve enhances response without detracting from its distinctive V-twin feel delivering ultra-precise intake flow to the engine under nearly any conditions. A fully electronic throttle valve system feeds that big V-twin exactly what it needs. The engine’s long-stroke design, high compression and big displacement produce massive amounts of quick-revving horsepower, all of it delivered with a distinct V-twin character.  The Classic LT V-twin uses a single overhead cam in each cylinder head, rather than a push rod overhead-valve arrangement, to boost efficiency and provide quick acceleration and superior passing performance.
