Used 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 1600
Upper Sandusky, OH
2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 Nomad, NOMAD!!! - 1 of Kawasakis most popular motorcycles is returning to the lineup for 2005 with a new name and several enhancements that make this leading-edge cruiser even better. The new Vulcan 1600 Nomad retains the elegant style of the Vulcan 1500 Nomad, but features more chrome, enhanced passenger comfort, and the big V-twin engines displacement has been boosted to 1,552cc to give it an even keener powerband. Beginning with the Nomads V-twin engine, displacement has been increased from 1,470cc to 1,552cc. Combined with new settings for the electronic fuel injection settings, the 1600 Nomad produces extra torque that cruiser riders will appreciate. Other design features carried over from the previous engine include single overhead cams and 4 valves per cylinder. Hydraulic valve lash adjusters automatically maintain valve clearance for smooth engine performance, reduced noise and reduced maintenance, while automatic cam chain tensioners keep cam timing accurate with virtually no maintenance. The revised Mitsubishi digital fuel injection system feeds each cylinder the appropriate fuel mixture through dual 36mm throttle bodies. A separate intake tract for each throttle body provides smooth engine operation, and the top is each injector contain 4 small nozzles, with 2 aimed at each intake valve. A 16-bit electronic control unit (ECU) features programming tailored specifically for the Nomads fuel injection system. Using readings from various sensors, it monitors engine coolant temperature, intake air temperature, atmospheric pressure, intake air pressure and throttle position to adjust the amount of fuel injected. Attention to these engineering information provide the 1600 Nomad with the best balance of power and performance, so the rider has an abundance of torque for any riding condition. Other refinements include larger engine mounts and a gear-driven engine counterbalancer to reduce handlebar and floorboard vibration, yet these features do not interfere with the engines distinctive V-twin rumble. Also, the 1600 Nomads steering has been lightened by reducing the offset of the front fork from twenty to 15mm. The result is that the motorcycle feels more neutral at low speeds, as when maneuvering in parking lots. In addition to its elegant, low-slung chassis, the new 1600 Nomad is endowed with more chrome and comfort features: New chrome engine guards are standard and a new, thicker passenger seat includes a backrest and aluminum grab bars. Plus, new pillion floorboards for the passenger replace the footpegs of the previous model. Combined, these features make long-distance rides more comfortable and pleasurable.
