Motorbike K-175 “Kovrovets” in the Museum of retro machinery “Our Orekhovo”
In 1956, the K-55 was replaced by a new model K-175. At that time it was the first domestic motorbike with 175 cc engine.
K-175 was a huge step forward compared to the K-55 not only in the matter of technology, but also in terms of appearance.
The design of the motorbike of the new for the USSR class “175” was original. According to some estimates, it was a revolution in domestic motorbike construction.
