Kawasaki W175 Unveils New Colors, Price Reduced by Rs 25K

In a surprising move, Kawasaki has decided to shake things up in the Indian motorcycle market, this time focusing on the popular W175 model. This iconic bike, known for its old-world charm, is now available in a refreshed avatar with a significant price reduction.

Price Drop of Rs. 25,000

The Standard Kawasaki W175, originally priced at Rs. 1.47 lakh (ex-showroom), has undergone a substantial price cut of Rs. 25,000. This strategic decision comes in response to the recent introduction of the W175 Street variant, which stole the spotlight with alloy wheels and tubeless tires.

New Colors, More Appeal

To make the Standard W175 more enticing, Kawasaki has introduced two new captivating colors—Metallic Graphite Grey and Metallic Ocean Blue. These join the existing Ebony and Candy Persimmon Red shades, offering riders a broader spectrum of choices.

Variant Lineup and Pricing

The lineup now spans across the Standard and Street versions, catering to a diverse range of preferences and budgets. Here's a breakdown of the Standard W175 pricing:

  • Rs. 1.22 lakh for Ebony shade
  • Rs. 1.24 lakh for Candy Persimmon Red
  • Rs. 1.29 lakh for Metallic Graphite Gray
  • Rs. 1.31 lakh for Metallic Ocean Blue

In comparison, the newly launched W175 Street is priced at Rs. 1.35 lakh for Metallic Moondust Gray and Candy Emerald Green. All prices are ex-showroom.

Differentiating Factors: Standard vs. Street

The primary distinction between the Standard Kawasaki W175 and the W175 Street lies in the wheels. While the Street variant boasts alloy wheels, the Standard W175 retains its classic appeal with wire-spoke wheels and tube-type tires. The W175 Street, in addition, features the convenience of tubeless tires.

Under the Hood and On the Road

Both the Standard and Street versions share the same powerhouse—a 177cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine generating 13 hp of peak power and 13 Nm of peak torque. Paired with a 5-speed gearbox, these bikes offer a timeless riding experience.

Safety features include a front disc brake with single-channel ABS and a rear drum brake setup. Weighing in at a friendly 135 kg, the Kawasaki W175 maintains its minimalist charm, featuring halogen bulbs for lighting and a semi-digital instrument cluster.

With a fresh look, enticing new colors, and a more accessible price point, the Standard Kawasaki W175 continues to capture hearts as a retro motorcycle with enduring appeal. Whether you opt for the classic charm of the Standard version or the modern touches of the Street variant, the W175 promises a delightful ride.
