Hi folks new to The forum, I was interested in buying a 2014 Kawasaki 1700 nomad. This bike has 6500 miles on it. When I took it for a ride which I did do twice it goes through the gears perfectly but when I get up to speed in any gear it seems to have a vibration that does not go away. Not like a Harley vibration that comes down as you level out. This seems to vibrate in every gear until I pull the clutch in. Is this a characteristic of this bike? If it is I'm not sure I could get used to it.it's not like the rumble of a motor is you're taking off it's more of like a vibration of the motor when you're taking off.

My 2017 Vaquero vibrates some under hard acceleration, but under normal riding conditions it's very smooth.

Welcome to the forum!
My 2016 Voyager is very smooth and has no vibration. I would be very leary of that bike.
Thank you for the input. I have one more to drive that's the same year same color 10000 more miles on it. I'll give it a try ,thank you
