KAWASAKI’S VULCAN® 1600 NOMAD™ BRINGS POWER AND STYLE TO THE TOURING CRUISER UNIVERSE

Sleek saddlebags and touring windscreen for the open road

Kawasaki’s Nomad™ has always been a popular choice among touring-cruiser enthusiasts. However, the current Nomad builds on the original concept with significantly more power and comfort than the original. Highlighted by a stronger frame and excellent power from a 95 cubic inch V-Twin, the Nomad offers extensive touring features, a stylish appearance and excellent riding dynamics.

A gear-driven engine counter balancer and well-designed engine mounts reduce handlebar and floorboard vibration, yet these features do not interfere with the engine’s distinctive V-twin rumble or power-pulse feeling from its single-pin crankshaft.


The 1600 Nomad’s steering geometry is designed so that the motorcycle feels more neutral at low speeds, as when maneuvering in parking lots, while an air-adjustable rear suspension allows the Nomad to maintain that correct geometry when loaded with a passenger and luggage.

The 1600 Nomad is highlighted by several chrome and comfort features: Chrome engine guards are standard and a thick passenger seat includes a backrest and aluminum grab bars. Floorboards for the passenger combine to make long-distance rides more comfortable and pleasurable.

Self-canceling turn signals, a 5.3-gallon fuel tank, topped by an elegant electronic speedometer and LED odometer/tripmeter display let Nomad owners fully enjoy their ride. Streamlined hard saddlebags provide generous storage for those hard-to-resist overnight rides. Plus, standard features such as an adjustable windshield, plush air-assisted rear suspension and adjustable levers tailor the Nomad to its rider.
