Love my black beast! Tons of power smooth and quiet. Can't beat it just as good as a Harley at one third of the price!
There is NO better cruiser than the Nomad
We purchased our Nomad back in 2010. She's an 06 model and we are still doing Rohde Trips, Day Rides, and Camp Trips with her. She purrs as she goes down the highway without being excessively loud. In other words, she let’s people know she’s arriving without deafening them. We have taken her to the mountains, on farm roads, on highways, on dirt roads, to the seaside, on country roads, and there is no terrain this girl can’t handle.
Despite her weight, she curls around those corners with the same style and grace of any gold medal Olympic gymnast. Her fuel economy is great, she has more than ample room in her pannier boxes, and sitting on her wide and comfortable seats whilst cruising down the highway equates to sitting on the plushest of sofa’s.
Her style and class speaks for itself. Even after a long trip, and needing a bath, this girl will still turn heads in any town she enters.
As for towing, she tows our motorcycle camper trailer like a dream.
Would not swap the Nomad for any other cruiser :)
Safe riding all,
comfort, reliability, style, capability as a tourer
kawasaki Vulcan 1600 nomad
Great ride. Even better now I have installed a fi2000r . There's is no more pinging a smoother ride and sounds totally different. I recommend this to anyone who has been taken aback with the performance wither nomad. Kawasaki should have fitted them all to this models. Again a better ride even two up there's a noticeable difference.
Nice and Scary!
But only at first as I'm 5'10" & 78 kg. Easy to ride for a heavy bike. I am happy with it's grunt and comfort. Over 15 kph it drives itself. Need more practice and can't wait for it. Oh yeah-expect to scrape the boards,it's unavoidable.Mates have Harleys,I couldn't afford a Road King or Fatboy, but I'm satisfied.
All good with the 2006 model.
overall AAA+ great cruiser that attracks a lot of questions and attention people even stopped at the traffic lights people want to know everything about the bike or just give you the thumbs up ! a great bike for a conversation starter.
everything ! rides great heaps of grunt in every gear comfortable seat and especialy for the pillian for those long trips and loads of luggage space!
its a pain at low speed turns and forget about parking it in nose first anywhere
