Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Kawasaki is all geared up to launch its new retro-styled bike. TMCblog reports that the company will introduce the Estrella 175 in the second half of 2017.
Initially, the Estrella 175 will go on sale in the Indonesian market. Previously it was reported that Kawasaki was developing a retro-style motorcycle. The Estrella 175 was also spotted testing in Indonesia.
The report also states that the Estrella 175 will be offered in two variants - standard and special edition. Kawasaki is expected to launch the new motorcycle in November 2017. The overall design of the motorcycle is similar to Triumph Bonneville.
The Estrella 175 is identical to its elder sibling, the Estrella 250. The motorcycle features classic exhaust pipe, round headlamp, spoke wheels, single piece bench seat and chrome rear view mirrors.
The retro-styled motorcycle from Kawasaki is expected to draw power from a 175cc single cylinder; fuel injected engine. The company has not revealed the power figures of the engine. The Estrella 250 produces 17bhp and 18Nm of torque.
The Estrella 175 is equipped with telescopic forks up front and twin shocks at the rear. Braking duties are handled by disc at the front and drum unit at the rear. The motorcycle is unlikely to get ABS as the Estrella 250 also does not get the safety feature.
The Kawasaki Estrella 175 is identical to the Estrella 250. It is a commuter motorcycle with a retro-style design. Kawasaki has not revealed its plans to launch its classic offering in the country. If the Estrella 250 is launched in India, it will rival the likes of Royal Enfield Bullet 350 and Classic 350.
