Kawasaki W175 Design

The styling hues of Kawasaki W175 clearly resemble the lineage of “W” models, that have been its ancestral siblings. Right from the W1 model that was introduced by the Japanese automaker in 1966, the Kawasaki range has always seen a rich heritage in terms of designing and appeal. Kawasaki never fails to delight its customers with its carving and sculpture of the motorcycles segment. 

The sculpting is so smooth in the motorcycle that you will not find even a single unit of brashness. The overall design looks very smoothly contoured. The round headlamps and straight seats are the biggest attraction. The motorcycle also has spoke-wheels which completes its retro look in every sense and there is no hint of modernization. Rear-view mirrors are also matched to the headlamps and are given a round appeal. 

Even the odometer is in the old-school form, which adds much to the retro character of the motorcycle. The classic analog speedometer also adds to the character of the motorcycle.

W175 Ride & Handling

Kawasaki W175 is designed to offer a joyful ride to its pickers and it is very focused on comfort and desirability. The seat is well cushioned and the functional design are very upright. The footpegs are also set at the most comfortable point, which also perfectly complements the lean angle of a single piece handlebar. The heart of the machine which is the engine is not the high-revolution unit, hence you would need more power to get the desired RPM. The throttle will not help much to get it responding. The power is smooth overall and will not offer a jolty ride. Since the maximum power and torque comes at lower revolutions, the engine does not get strained a lot, therefore being content with the air-cooling system.

Kawasaki W175 Engine & Fuel Consumption

At the heart of the motorcycle is the 177cc engine which is air-cooled and has a single-cylinder setup. The total power that is generated out by this motor is 13.05 hp at 7,500 rpm along with a peak torque of 13.2 Nm, which comes at just 6,000 rpm. Hence, the engine is not the type that needs many revolutions to get you the peak power and torque.

The power is sent to the 5-speed gearbox which offers a smooth and seamless ride with up and downshifts without many jolts. The body weight is also kept at bare minimum to avoid any vibrations even at a high speed.

W175 Braking & Safety

Taking about the standard safety features, the Kawasaki W175 does not top the charts with no outrights performance. It is not the motorcycle that needs the Anti-Lock Braking System or thick sticky tyres. The primary braking feature is however performed by disc brakes upfront and drums at the rear. 

Other basic safety features include a pass light switch, which is extremely handy under the dark sky. You need to be cautious at high speeds though since the motorcycle does not have a backrest or a grab rail for the pillion, so things might get a little risky.

Kawasaki W175 Verdict

The Kawasaki W175 is indeed a very retro model for all the riders who love motorcycles with style and swag and every inch of it resembles the same. We cannot seem to locate any direct rival for this motorcycle but still, it does not outperform any model under the same price range and with the same engine configurations. However, it proves to be a perfect alternative to the bikes like the FZi or the TFX 150, the latter being the more premium one. Though it is more expensive than other motorcycles given its premium and retro character.
