Kawasaki To Launch A New Bike In India On Sep 25

Kawasaki Motors is expected to launch a new bike in the Indian market on September 25, 2022. Its identity hasn’t yet been made public, though. This fuels the rumour that the W175 may finally arrive in India where it would replace the Ninja 300 as the entry-level motorcycle for the company. (

The Kawasaki W175 was frequently spotted testing on open roads, and its release was anticipated to happen as early as last year. The W175 from the Japanese manufacturer will likely be their most affordable motorcycle, with a potential price tag of about Rs. 1.8 lakh (ex-showroom). Its power source is a 177 cc single-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 13 PS and a maximum torque of 13.2 Nm.

A five-speed transmission connects the engine to the transmission. Although Kawasaki hasn’t formally affirmed that it will be the W175, there is a chance that it will be the Z400 given that the Ninja 400 is already available in India and recently returned to the market. The Kawasaki Z400 might face off against the likes of the KTM 390 Duke and BMW G310 R, among others.

It is also unknown if the Z400 streetfighter will be offered at a competitive price. The 399cc parallel twin-cylinder engine that powers the company’s BSVI-compliant Ninja 400, which was introduced in India in June 2022 and has a maximum power output of 45 hp at 10,000 rpm and a maximum torque output of 37 Nm at 8,000 rpm, was developed by the company.

The price of the Kawasaki Ninja 400 is Rs. 5 lakh (ex-showroom), and if the Z400 is released, its price might be a little lower. In contrast, the KTM 390 Duke is loaded with features and costs Rs. 2.95 lakh (ex-showroom). The third-generation 390 Duke is currently being developed and will probably arrive in India sometime in the following year with a number of upgrades.

The W175 will compete with the RE Classic 350 despite its low power, and the India-specific model might include FI technology. It is also incredibly light. It is supported by twin shock absorbers in back and telescopic front forks on a semi-double-cradle chassis with a box-type swingarm.
