General information about the 2004-2007 Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 Mean Streak

The Vulcan 1600 Mean Streak’s 1,552cc V-twin engine offers a smooth wave of torque to make your ride more entertaining, thanks to high-tech features like liquid cooling, electronic fuel injection, dual spark plug digital ignition, and four valves per cylinder. Dual Plug Digital Ignition, microprocessor-controlled timing. Two spark plugs in each combustion chamber cut detonation for added durability.

Liquid-Cooling maintains consistent engine temperatures for long engine life and sustained power. The auxiliary fan keeps things cool, even in traffic. Four Valves per Cylinder
Compact combustion chamber for increased compression ratio without the detonation
Boosts low-end torque and provides maximum valve area for optimum flow.

Digital Fuel Injection provides excellent engine response and power with less fuel consumption. Two different systems are switched and used automatically according to engine load for accurate fuel-injection control. The compact electronic control unit processes information faster for better engine response. Dual 40mm throttle bodies use one injector for each cylinder.
