The Concours is a sport bike that loves to tour. Fully equipped for travel with its cavernous saddlebags and monstrous 7.5 gallon fuel tank. Adjustable front & rear suspension offers the sport factor in your touring day.

Touring With Kawasaki

When it comes to providing motorcycles with the amenities to turn long-distance journeys into exhilarating adventures, Kawasaki’s 2002 Touring line-up includes the most user-friendly high-mileage machines available. If the wind in your face and the road blurring past beneath two wheels is what vacation means to you, then Kawasaki has you covered.

In addition to the new ZZ-R1200, Kawasaki offers a cruiser lover’s touring machine in the form of the Vulcan 1500 Nomad™ Fi. With its stylish saddlebags, adjustable windshield and high-tech, fuel-injected engine, the award-winning Nomad is at home on the boulevard or the byways.

Then there’s the more traditional touring package in the Voyager® XII motorcycle. The quintessential luxury liner, this machine comes standard with spacious saddlebags, a large rear trunk, a full fairing with a wide windshield for weather protection and luxury features, such as electronic cruise control and an integrated stereo system. Its nimble-handling nature and maneuverability are icing on the cake, as is the Voyager’s surprisingly affordable price.

Also available from Kawasaki is the more sport-oriented Concours™ motorcycle. It combines a comfortable riding position and detachable hard luggage with the high-performance characteristics and handling of a sportbike. The Concours is particularly appealing in its ability to give riders the best of both touring and sport-riding worlds at an affordable price. Concours owners are among Kawasaki’s most loyal and vocal enthusiasts.

And at Kawasaki there is more than one way to go V-twin touring. Look no further than the Vulcan 750 with its available Tour Package that makes your cruiser tour worthy. It’s in a class of its own.

For the truly adventurous, Kawasaki offers the KLR650 with available soft luggage to take you to those hard to reach places where the roads may or may not be paved. You’d be surprised what you may find at the end of the road.

For the sporting adventurer, the new-for-2002 Kawasaki ZZ-R1200 sport-touring motorcycle is the ideal vehicle. Designed specifically for motorcyclists interested in a performance-oriented ride, but who also seek the comfort and style of a bona fide grand-touring bike, the ZZ-R1200 can’t help but please.
