Kawasaki W175 design and dimension

The new Kawasaki W175 draws design cues from its larger sibling, the W800. The W175 features a tear-drop style fuel tank with a round headlight, squarish side panels, full front and rear fenders, round turn signals, and a side-slung exhaust. The Kawasaki W175 screams retro in terms of design, and the blacked-out engine components and exhaust give it a well-finished look.

In terms of dimensions, the new Kawasaki W175 offers a ground clearance of 165 mm, while the saddle height measures 790 mm. However, the biggest advantage of the W175 is its weight, at 135 kg, giving it a light footprint and making it an ideal motorcycle for those stepping into the world of motorcycles.

The 2022 Kawasaki W175 gets telescopic front forks, dual shocks at the rear, a disc brake at the front with ABS and drum brake at the rear, a single pod instrument cluster, a 65-watt halogen headlight, and 17-inch wheels with spoke rims.

The semi-digital instrument cluster is simple, offering an analogue speedometer, odometer, and trip indicators. The six warning lights on the console indicate high-beam, turn signals, neutral, and others. Kawasaki does not offer smartphone connectivity or other features as this is not something the segment looks forward to.
