The Honda 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 1971 Honda CB 175 came equipped with a tachometer, round stretched out turn indicators, flatter handle bars, Honda logo on fuel tank and an electric starter.
