Kawasaki has announced the launch of the new 2022 W175 motorcycle for the Indonesian market. With the latest update, the motorcycle gets new color options. The bike is now available for purchase in four colors, Metallic Matte Covert Green, Metallic Bright Silver and Ebony Black Style. Currently, there is no bike in the Indian market that directly competes with this motorcycle.
The W175 retails in the international market in three main models, which differ mainly in styling. The model’s base SE trim features traditional Modern Classic styling. It featured round headlights with chrome surrounds, a teardrop fuel tank, one-piece handlebars, a chunky seat, a peashooter-style exhaust, and spoked wheels.
The W175 is also sold in Café Racer trim, which has a small fly screen at the front, and a rib-patterned seat, also available in different color options. Beyond that, there’s a TR SE variant with scrambled high-mounted fenders, braced handlebars, and upturned exhaust.
All of these models draw power from the same 177cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine. The powertrain is rated to deliver close to 12.6 horsepower. Depending on the variant, however, the torque output ranges from 13.2 Nm to 13.6 Nm.

Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks with brackets at the front and twin springs at the rear. For braking, it uses a disc-drum combination. The bike weighs just 126kg, making it a lightweight contender.
Interestingly, the car was also spotted doing multiple tests on Indian roads, adding fuel to the fire for its Indian launch. However, it now appears that the flame has been completely extinguished as the company has no immediate plans to launch the product in the Indian market.
