The Honda XL175 was a 175cc, 4-stroke, OHC, dual-purpose motorcycle manufactured by Honda from 1973 through 1978.

The motorcycle, though dressed in enduro motorcycle style of raised front fender, upswept exhaust system, it was best used for street or trail riding due to its weight compared to 2-stroke contemporaries.
