177cc Kawasaki is out in the market now with its retro styling and vintage tech as well. | Price, Engine, Features, Mileage | HighRPM

 There was a time when Kawasaki had small hearts as well and those hearts were pretty affordable too but being a premium motorcycle manufacturer they discontinued them. After so many years they are back with their new fully India made bike with small heart and affordable in terms of Kawasaki otherwise they this machine is too on the expensive court. Therefore they have launched the all new Kawasaki W175, we all know that Kawasaki's W means modern retro styling and great aura. However, it feels so weird to say that this Kawasaki is powered by just 177cc where we are used to heard some big engines powering the bike and giving them jaw dropping power but in this case the power is not showing the Kawasaki behaviour which is too uncomfortable. Coming back to this newly launched bike, it have that typical Kawasaki W design which is looks timeless always but my eyes are used to see bulky Kawasaki that this bike taking more than usual to fit in my eyes, I couldn't help myself.  Back to

With all these stuffs this bike gives you taste of 42.9bhp of power at 9000rpm (43bhp) with the punch of 37Nm of torque at 7000rpm.
Thanks to this engine which can take this bike to 170km/h of top speed. 

Alike other KTMs this one is also filled with features that makes the experience more intimate and delicious and safe too.

  • Blinkers- LED 

Dimensions and weight
Wheelbase- 1355mm
Ground clearance- 158mm 
Seat Height- 824mm 
Weight- 172kg 

Seat height is slightly on the higher side, it might be a struggle for short riders. 

Looks 
It have an astounding style which is carried by it flawlessly. Sharp looking lines and curves drawing a perfect picture of a sports bike. 

Face
One thing that I personally don't like about KTMs is their headlight design, and same feeling I'm getting about this KTM too, although I appreciate their uniqueness. 
It get visor which kinda provide service to headlight house as well. Visor is fixed its not adjustable and to take benefit of visor you have to dug down, its not a adventure machine keep that thing in mind. Blinkers are slick in design and are sufficiently bright. 110 section tyre is moving with its personality. 

Side scene
The coolness of KTM is one of the reason to grap public and with upgrade version of that coolness RC 390 is rocking the scenario right now. 

The graphics are looking spot one, giving mind blowing appearance to the machine. Fairing is attached to the headlight housing which gives it a bulky and huge look. Fuel tank is big with some sporty lines on it. Engine is exposed that enhances the picture of KTM RC 390. You can spot the quickshifter too. 

The seat height is pretty high for short riders, pillion seats seems cramped and it is, no proper grab rails pillion get space to hold on beneath the seat but that is so weird. Ground clearance is not bad. 

Tail
Sharp tail with full LED tail light whose design is simply amazing, the slick blinkers also helps in maintaining the sportiness of this motorcycle. 150 section type is giving it great grip and looks as well. It got tyre hugger which spoils the looks but show its importance in rainy season, when you got unwanted design on your clothes. 

Instrument cluster 
One thing I love the most about KTMs is their colourfull instrument cluster which shows you plenty of information. This one also features that, which shows you turn by turn navigation, speed tachometer, odometer, tripmeters, time, gear, fuel, and plenty of other things. You can explore this cluster by the navigation buttons given on the left side of the handle bar. 


At last......
Seriously speaking, I'm not a big fan of KTM but this new RC 390 is an attractive machine. KTM are known for their speedy style and the power figures are sick. Look wise, electronic wise this bike is amazing but the only thing is that it is quite expensive.
