The 2013 Kawasaki Voyager 1700 ABS is the "Flagship" of the Kawasaki line.
It has plenty of style and rides as good as it looks. Sort of reminds me of a 1957 Chevy or a 1968 Mustang GT fastback. Great retro styling.
And it's LOADED with features.

Front & Rear Speakers (Marine)
6 Speed Transmission (with overdrive)

...........................SO MUCH MORE.............................
The Kawasaki 1700 Vulcan Voyager came out in 2009. People loved the bike but just like most big V-Twins the biggest complaint was the engine heat that came up and almost "melted" the rider. In 2012 and later models, Kawasaki came up with an ingenious method through vents and a fan to direct the hot hair away from the rider. AND IT WORKS GREAT. If the engine gets hot enough for the main radiator fan to come on, the rider assist fan also kicks on at the same time and it REALLY WORKS.
The ABS and the K-Act systems are fabulous too. When you use the rear brake pedal it actuates both the front and rear brakes. And likewise for the front brakes...it actuates the rear. And the ABS keeps things from getting out of control. AWESOME SYSTEM
Tires are in great shape front and rear with plenty of tread. Recently replaced.
Also the bike just recently turned 10000 miles. So it's barely broken in. Bunches of miles and smiles left on this beauty.
The color of the bike is a breathtaking Pearl White and Pearl Silver Combination....gorgeous shine and between the chrome and paint..this bike is beautiful.
Nice sound system with 4 surround speakers.
Marine speakers by the way to they're pretty water resistant.
Comfy Seats front and rear.
The engine is has plenty of nice torque and matched to its 6 speed transmission she'll do whatever you need her to do.
Comfort is of high level with an air adjustable rear suspension. She tracks great and takes the curves with a feeling that will keep you confident.
Low seating height. I only have a 28" inseam and I can firmly and easily plant both feet to the ground when stopped.
She's a big heavy bike but once moving she belies her size and weight. Easy to handle.
Plenty of storage space.The rear tourpack holds 2 full size helmets and of course it and the 2 sidebags are lockable for security. It also has 2 small compartments in the front for small things like wallets, cell phones, keys, etc. And of course they are lockable too.
It has the perfect height windshield (shorter than stock) and great running lights in front for safety.
