The new Kawasaki W175 BS6 will be launched in India on September 25, 2022. Ahead of its official launch, the company has teased the motorcycle on its social media handles.
The Kawasaki W175 is the smallest member of the Kawasaki ‘W’ family which includes retro cruisers. In fact, upon launch, the W175 will be Kawasaki’s most affordable motorcycle in the country.

In terms of design, the Kawasaki W175 has an old-school retro charm. The motorcycle sports a round-shaped halogen headlamp, fork cover gaiters, wire-spoke wheels, a flat single-piece seat, blacked-out body panels, and minimal graphics. Powering the India-spec Kawasaki W175 will be a BS6-compliant 177cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine with fuel-injection technology.
This motor will churn out 12.8 bhp and 13.2 Nm of peak torque, paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. It will get telescopic front forks and dual shock absorbers at the rear. The braking duties will be performed by a 270 mm disc at the front and a 110 mm drum at the rear with a single-channel ABS.
