2022 Kawasaki W175 Price & Colours
The colour & price details were already leaked and we reported it a few days ago. The leaks reported were correct, and the pricing and colours detailed were accurate.
Kawasaki India are offering the new W175 retro bike at an introductory price of Rs. 1,47,000/- for the Standard Variant, while the Special Edition is being offered at Rs. 1,49,000/- (ex-showroom).
This introductory pricing announced means that Kawasaki have attempted to slot their new modern-retro bike just below the rivalling TVS Ronin & Hunter 350. However, it is revealed that this pricing is introductory, so there will be some hike brought to these numbers in due time.
The main difference between the 2 new variants is actually the colour schemes. The Ebony colour is an all-Black option where except for the rims, rear shocks and headlight bezels, the whole bike is Blacked-out to give it the stealth look.
The Special Edition is being offered in a unique Candy Persimmon Red consisting of bright Candy Red contrasted with black on the tank, seat, engine casing etc. There is also added their iconic chrome ‘W’ emblem on either side of the tank highlighting their long-standing W legacy.
