==History==
==About==
 
 
The '''CB175''' was a high revving engine producing 20 [[horsepower|bhp]] (15 kW), this was a beefier version of the [[Honda CD175|CD175]] but with twin [[Carburetor|carburetors]] and wilder [[cam|cams]]. This [[motorcycle|bike]] was made keeping single purpose in mind i.e. excess of fun and performance combined with excellent styling. Top speed was increased to 85 mph (136km/h) with better acceleration compared to 80 mph(128 km/h) of [[Honda CD175|CD175]]. But all of this came with a price as [[valves|exhaust valves]] gave in early and engine had a relatively shorter life. The '''CB175''' came equipped with a [[tachometer]], round stretched out turn indicators, flatter handle bars, [[Honda]] logo on fuel tank and an electric starter.

This chassis was shared with the [[Honda CB125K|CB125K3]] model, but of course with a totally different engine sharing no common parts, and the CB125K3 had a very stylish rev-counter/speedo in one body let into the headlight in true 'Sixties style! This 175K3 had separate speedo and rev-counters mounted in the 1970's style, the first Honda other than the CB250 to do so.

Top speed was increased to 85 mph (136km/h) with better acceleration compared to 80 mph(128 km/h) of CD175. But all of this came with a price as exhaust valves gave in early and engine had a relatively shorter life. The CB175 came equipped with a tachometer, round stretched out turn indicators, flatter handle bars, Honda logo on fuel tank and an electric starter.
