The Spanish word vaquero means “cowboy.” Well, if that cowboy happened to be independent, adventurous and sported handmade boots and a custom hat, he’d probably ride a 2011 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero. It starts with the beautiful Ebony or Candy Fire Red paint on the abbreviated fairing, sculpted tank and curvaceous bodywork. Luxurious chrome accents provide a beautiful counterpoint to the glossy paintwork. The Vaquero’s 1,700cc, SOHC, liquid-cooled V-twin, boasts the very latest in engine technology yet looks like a throwback to the past, all while delivering 108 foot-pounds of torque.
