[[Honda]] CD 175 was a 174 [[cc]] [[motorcycle| bike]] introduced in USA, Canada, UK, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand in 1967. Main features of this [[motorcycle| bike]] included  360 degree [[Crankshaft|cranks]], a single ignition, single [[carburetor]] to cut down maintenance, odd styling, a [[parallel twin]] high [[revving]] [[engine]] and a [[speedometer]] that calibrated to 100 mph (160 km/h).

The early bikes ('67-'69) featured a pressed steel spine frame (Honda called this a 'T-bone' frame in some advertising), and an engine with heavily forward-inclined cylinders that acted as a stressed member - there was no down tube as in a cradle-framed bike. In this regard they were similar to the earlier [[Honda C71|C72]]/[[Honda C77|C77]] and [[Honda C92|C92]]/[[Honda C95|C95]] bikes.

The later bikes - '69-'79 - were far more conventional, with upright cylinders and a conventional tubular frame with down-tube in front of the engine. They were heavier and not as fast as the early bikes. Depending on the market, they were fitted with dual seats, or single seats with large luggage racks.

This bike offered a relatively quicker ride compared to a cheaper cost (50 miles per gallon) but suffered from weak brakes (being only cable operated single shoe drum brakes) and was not “oil tight”. Also the 6 volt electric system made the lights quite inadequate at any speed over 30 mph on a dark night. In 1979 this model was replaced by [[Honda CD185]].
