About

The CB175 was a high revving engine producing 20 bhp (15 kW), this was a beefier version of the CD175 but with twin carburetors and wilder cams.

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.
