Know everything about Kawasaki W175
The bike manufacturer has launched the bike with a tubular semi-double-cradle frame setup, which gives the customers a proper retro-style riding experience. Talking more about the frame, it is suspended by a telescopic fork at the front and it features twin shock absorbers at the back which makes it tougher off-road.
According to Kawasaki, it claims that the newly launched W175’s suspension has been specially designed for Indian roads only.
As far as safety is concerned, the W175 comes with a single 270mm disc at the front while it features sports a drum brake at the back (which seems like a big cost-cutting considering the price tag). The vehicle also gets 17-inch spoked wheels at both the front and the rear.
Talking about the features, it looks like the newly launched Kawasaki W175 has taken some inspiration and its larger sibling, the W800. The retro-style bike sports a round headlamp at the front. On top, it features a simple semi-digital instrument cluster, which provides important information such as fuel capacity, speed, and RPM among others. The instrument cluster is also surrounded by six tell-tale lights that include high beams, lights for neutral, turn indications and battery warnings.
