towards making Kawasaki India self-reliant, incorporating the latest Indian
standards including BS6. Most of the parts are designed and developed by
talented teams of designers and engineers based at India Kawasaki Motor’s
R&D technical centre, in Pune, Maharashtra.
The most unique feature of this motorcycle is its
exhilarating ride, which comes with uniquely refined engine that enables smooth
acceleration, and better handling. Premium features include compact 177cc single
cylinder FI engine, semi- digital retro style speedometer, semi double-cradle frame,
bright multi-reflector headlamp, 270 mm front disc with single channel ABS, dual
shock rear suspension and sharp retro–classic style.
The W175 is powered by a 177 cc single cylinder air-cooled
FI engine for better fuel efficiency. Ample torque makes it easy to operate,
offering a stress-free experience that lets riders focus on the ride. A 5-speed
transmission and an engine balancer that tames unwanted vibrations also
contribute to a fun, comfortable ride.
The semi-double cradle frame configuration with
proportionate swing-arm length complements retro styling and also offers
excellent durability. The handlebar, optimum seat height, and footpegs put the
rider in a natural position, contributing to rider comfort. The W175's
lightweight made it easier to manoeuvre for daily commuting and also capable of
getting over any kind of roadway.
The front and rear suspension work with the rigid frame,
providing adequate shock absorption for a comfortable ride while offering firm
enough damping to enable fun riding. Settings were optimised for the Indian
roads. It offers sure stopping power at the front with single-channel ABS and a
270 mm disc brake gripped by a two piston caliper. A drum brake slows the rear
while adding to the retro looks. Befitting a retro model, the W175 features 17-
inch spoke wheels at the front and rear.
