Is the newly launched Kawasaki W175 Street more desirable than its previous versions? Price, Specifications and Features

Kawasaki W175 Street retro-style motorcycle has launched at India Bike Week 2023 in Vagator, Goa. The W175 received new colours and more importantly a significant price reduction! It is only single-cylinder bike available from the Kawasaki manufacturer in India. It's also the cheapest bike of Kawasaki in India.
There are some mechanical and cosmetic updates for the new W175 Street. The two new paint jobs, Candy Emerald Green and Metallic Moondust Grey, are the most noticeable. The fuel tank has distinct graphics in both paint jobs. In addition, the Street receives new 17-inch alloy wheels and tubeless tyres instead of the spoke wheels and tube tyres found on the standard W175 vehicle.

There are a few slight changes between the standard W175 and W175 Street. It has a bit lower seat height of 786.5 mm (compared to 790 mm) and sits lower to the ground at 152 mm as opposed to the standard W175's 165 mm. Additionally, the front disc brake is smaller 245 mm compared to 270 mm.

Engine and Gearbox
This bike has a 177cc air-cooled single-cylinder fuel-injector engine with two valves that can produce 13.2 Nm of peak torque at 6000 rpm and a maximum power of 12.8 bhp at 7500 rpm. It is coupled to a manual five-speed gearbox that engages a multi-plate wet clutch. The 45 km/l ARAI-certified Kawasaki W175 mileage may differ depending on the driving circumstances. It has also reportedly been reported to be capable of reaching a top speed of 110 km/h.

The Kawasaki W175 street has succeeded in creating a ride and handling combination that is nicely balanced. It is supported by a basic tubular, semi-double-cradle frame that is held in place by two shock absorbers and a telescopic fork. The smaller W is very calm when it tips into corners, doing so with ease. Considering that it has skinny Ceat tyres, this is surprising. The tyres themselves offer the rider excellent feedback and plenty of grip. For the most part, the ride is also well-judged because it doesn't feel overly soft or firm.

Kawasaki W175 street features a semi-digital, retro-style instrument console with two digital trip metres, a digital fuel gauge, an analogue speedometer, a digital clock, and a digital odometer. A pass light, kill switch, shift light, electric start features, and other things are included with the Kawasaki W175 in addition to this.

Suspension and Brakes
Telescopic front forks and twin rear springs handle suspension duties, while a double-cradle chassis makes up the hardware. A single 270mm petal-type rotor at the front and a 110mm drum brake at the rear make up the braking arrangement, and a single-channel ABS serves as the safety net.

  • Seems decent in terms of appearance.
  • A product of a luxury brand. 
  • Kerb weight is relatively low.
  • Poor performance in numbers.
  • Motorcycle lacks desire.

The starting price of Kawasaki W175 in Delhi is ₹ 1,58,128 lakh. In India, the W175 comes in three variants and four colours. The top-tier W175 variant costs ₹ 1,71,618 lakh (on-road price) in Delhi. Two Kawasaki showrooms in Delhi are selling Kawasaki W175 street.
