Kawasaki 2015 Vulcan 1700 Vaquero ABS Vaquero Brakes

Vaquero Brakes

K-ACT ABS is an advanced anti-lock braking system, designed to keep tyres from locking up during braking. K-ACT ABS was designed to be used on touring models weighing in excess of 300 kg - and that is before adding a tandem rider and luggage.

Complementing its standard ABS function, K-ACT ABS links the front and rear brakes. It monitors the brake force the rider is exerting at both the front and rear, and takes into consideration vehicle speed to ensure highly effective braking while maintaining chassis stability.

Kawasaki 2015 Vulcan 1700 Vaquero ABS ETV (Electronic Throttle Valve System)

ETV (Electronic Throttle Valve System)

Kawasaki's first fully electronic throttle actuation system enables the ECU to control the volume of both the fuel (via fuel injectors) and the air (via throttle valves) delivered to the engine. Ideal fuel injection and throttle valve position results in smooth, natural engine response.

Control of both fuel injection and airflow also enables precise cold-engine idling speed control.
