Kawasaki holds a significant position in the Indian market when it comes to their large motorcycles. It is worth noting that in India, where a majority of motorcycles have engines with a capacity of 200cc or lower, the Ninja 400 with its 400cc engine is considered a substantial bike. However, the W175 stands out as the most budget-friendly option in Kawasaki’s Indian lineup, making it appealing to individuals who are interested in the brand or those seeking a trendy retro commuter.
The W series of motorcycles by Kawasaki has consistently embodied a timeless essence, encompassing both aesthetic appeal and practicality. However, it is worth noting that many individuals in the western hemisphere are unaware of the existence of the W175, the younger counterpart to the renowned W800.
As you are aware, the Asian market is abundant with unfamiliar small-displacement motorcycles that many individuals have yet to encounter.
The W175 has maintained its presence for almost seven years, yet it has remained relatively unchanged. It can be described as a basic and uncomplicated machine in every aspect. Its propulsion is provided by a 177cc, air-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine, which delivers a modest power output of 13 horsepower and 13 Nm (9.6 pound-feet) of torque.
