In terms of design, the bike borrows some cues from its twin, the W800. It is adorned with round headlight, tear-drop shaped fuel tank, a boxy side panel, a curved fender at rear, tail-light and indicators attached to it. The bike rides on 17-inch spoke wheels at front and rear and its tyre tread pattern contribute to its retro looks.
The W175 gets 60W headlamp which is as bright as that of larger-class models. The bike's semi- double cradle configuration complements the retro styling.
The Kawasaki W175 comes equipped with an asymmetric semi digital - Retro-style speedometer complemented by an odometer, trip meter and indicator lamps. The bikes also features a ‘W’ moniker, just like other models in the W family, on the speedometer face.
The bike employs a tubular semi double-cradle frame which is suspended by a telescopic fork and twin shock absorbers. The rear suspension travel is only 65mm whereas the braking duties are handled by a single disc at the front and a drum at the rear. Fork boots protect the fork inner tubes, and contribute to the W175’s retro looks – as does the dual shock rear suspension.
