The Kawasaki W175 takes some styling influences from the W800, its twin. The W800 is referenced by the round headlight, teardrop-shaped fuel tank, and boxy side panel.
Kawasaki W175: Features and Design
The Kawasaki W175 borrows some design cues from its twin, the W800. The round headlight, tear-drop shaped fuel tank and boxy side panel is reminiscent of the W800. Likewise, it has got a curved fender at rear, with the tail-light and indicators attached to it.
The 790mm, single-piece seat appears to be well padded, and the ergonomics of the bike appear to offer a comfortable, upright stance.
The bike is equipped with a straightforward analogue speedometer and six warning lights in addition to neutral, high beam, and turn indicators. The newest Kawasaki model will be sold in Standard Back Color for 1.47 lakh and Special Edition for 1.49 lakh.
A 177cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine rated at 13 horsepower and 13.2 Newton metres powers the Kawasaki W175. To comply with BS6 standards, it is now fuel-injected and mated to a five-speed transmission. The W175’s 135kg kerb weight should aid its cause when it comes to performance, even though the power and torque ratings may look low. The bicycle has a semi-double-cradle tubular frame that is supported by twin shock absorbers, a telescoping fork, and both. The rear suspension travel is only 65mm, to speak of. A single disc in the front and a drum at the back are responsible for braking.
All authorised dealerships are carrying the Kawasaki W175, and delivery should start soon. Bookings will be accepted starting tomorrow, and delivery will start in December 2022.
