The Honda CB175 was a 175cc, 4-stroke, OHC, street motorcycle manufactured by Honda from 1969 through 1975. It could reach a top speed of 81 mph (130 km/h). Claimed horsepower was 19.98 HP (14.9 KW) @ 11000 RPM.

History

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. This 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 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.

Engine

The engine was a air cooled air-cooled, four-stroke, twin cylinder, OHC, 2 valves per cylidner. A 50.8mm bore x 50.8mm stroke result in a displacement of just 174.0 cubic centimeters. Fuel was supplied via a overhead cams (ohc).

Drive

The bike has a 5-speed, manual transmission.

Chassis

It came with a 2.75 - 18 front tire and a 3.00 - 18 rear tire. Stopping was achieved via single disc in the front and a drum in the rear. The front suspension was a telescopic fork while the rear was equipped with a dual shock absorbers. The CB 175 was fitted with a 2.64 Gallon (10.00 Liters) fuel tank.
