Kawasaki W175 Preview
Already available on sale in some international markets like Indonesia and Thailand, the Kawasaki W175 is soon going to make its way to Indian soil as well. It is an old-school retro motorcycle from the Japanese bike-maker.
And being a retro motorcycle, the Kawasaki W175 has all the tits and bits in order to exude that old-school charm. The overall design is pretty simple, and it’s replete with a peanut-shaped fuel tank, circular fittings, a single-piece seat, and a blacked-out engine bay. Completing the overall retro look are spoke wheels. It also gets circular dials for instrumentation.
The Kawasaki W175, as its name gives away, comes powered by a 177cc, two-valve, air-cooled SOHC engine, which is compliant with BS-VI emission standards and makes 12.8bhp and 13.2Nm of torque. It is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Since the Kawasaki W175 carries the lowest displacement engine in a retro old-school motorcycle in India, it is likely to be priced very aggressively too. Expect it to arrive in the Indian market before the second quarter of this year.
