Kawasaki has launched its most reasonable model in India, the Kawasaki W175. The Kawasaki W175 marks the entry point to Kawasaki’s ‘W’ range of motorcycles in India, which is a retro-inspired ‘heritage’ series, and the W175 stays true to its name. The Kawasaki W175 is priced at Rs 1,47,000 for the ‘Ebony’ shade, while the ‘Candy Persimmon Red’ shade is Rs 1,49,000 the ex-showroom price.
The Kawasaki W175 gets a ton of traditional touches in its design. It may get a round halogen headlamp, a circular analog speedometer with a small digital insert, single piece ribbed seat, and front fork gaiters. In the suspension front, the W175 gets a pair of 30mm telescopic forks up front, dual shock absorbers at the back with 65mm of travel.
The motorcycle is powered by a 177cc single-cylinder air cooled engine, which puts out 12.9bhp at 7500rpm and 13.2Nm at 6,000rom. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Braking duties are handled by a 270mm disc-brake up front, and a rear drum brake. The Kawasaki W175 also gets a single-channel ABS, but tech on offer is limited, thanks to the retro inspiration. The motorcycle is also very light and has a kerb weight of 135kg, which is supposed to make it easy to use for city travel.
