The Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero was a cruiser motorcycle that debuted in 2011 and was part of the Vulcan 1700 series alongside the Classic, Classic LT, Nomad, and Voyager versions that debuted in 2009 and continued production until the present (2023).

In 2014, the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer launched the Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero SE ABS, a special edition model available for purchase only in the American market.

The special edition model packed the exact technical and performance specifications as the 2014 base model but with an additional new Candy Burnt Orange color scheme complemented by black flame vinyl on the panniers, fuel tank, and front cowl, matching the blacked-out accents of the engine and chassis.

Besides that, the bike packed the same standard features as the base model, including a large front cowl with a small windscreen, a teardrop-styled tank, a one-piece dual seat, side-mounted color-matched panniers, a dual exhaust system with a silencer on each side, and nine-spoke lightweight aluminum wheels.

The bike's wheels were fitted with two 300 mm discs coupled to four-four-piston calipers on the front and a 300 mm disc with a dual-piston caliper on the rear, offering excellent stopping power enhanced by an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).

As for power, the 2014 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Vaquero SE ABS had installed a 1,700cc four-stroke liquid-cooled V-twin engine underneath its fuel tank, delivering an output power of 83 hp at 5,000 rpm and 146 Nm (108 lb-ft) torque at 2,750 rpm.
