Category: Motorbikes - Road Travel
The Honda CD175 was a 174 cc (10.6 cu in) Honda motorcycle made from 1967 to 1979. It was the touring model in Honda's 175 cc motorcycle lineup that also included the sportier CB175 and the off road CL175 version. The CD175 shared many components and design elements in common with the contemporary CD125 and SS125 models from Honda including stamped "t-bone" frame, swingarm, double seat, and electrics among other things. It had electric start, except in the UK, turn signals, and mirrors. The "sloper" engine used on earlier models was an evolutionary version of the older Honda CB160 power plant and contained many of the same components including most of the castings and internal items.
The CD175 had a 360° crankshaft, wasted spark ignition, single carburetor, a parallel twin high revving engine, 16" wheels and a 100 mph (160 km/h) speedometer. Each connecting rod big end had roller bearings. In 1979 it was replaced by Honda CD185.
