Hero MotoCorp earlier this year had unveiled the most awaited bike from its portfolio, Hero Xtreme 160R. Hero MotoCorp now has launched one of its most-anticipated motorcycles in the Indian market, the Xtreme 160R. The new Hero Xtreme 160R is offered in two variants: front disc and double-disc. The Hero Xtreme 160R front disc variant is offered at Rs 99,950, while the top-spec ‘double-disc’ variant is available with a price tag of Rs 1.03 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
The production-ready model first debuted in India back in February at the Hero World event, held in Jaipur, Rajasthan. The new Hero Xtreme 160R has been completely designed and developed at the brand’s R&D facility in Jaipur, Rajasthan. The premium 160cc motorcycle offering from the brand is powered by a BS6-compliant engine, which promises to offer class-leading performance and acceleration figures.
The motorcycle comes powered by a 163cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. It produces 15bhp at 8500rpm and 14Nm of peak torque at 6500rpm, paired with a five-speed gearbox. The motorcycle also features the Hero’s programmed fuel injection system, ensuring optimum performance and efficiency.
Hero claims that the Xtreme 160R is capable of 0 – 60km/h in 4.7 seconds, while also boasting of the best-in-class power-to-weight ratio. The motorcycle weighs in at just 138.5 kilograms for the base-spec mode
The new Hero Xtreme 160R also features an extremely sporty design and style. It also comes with a bunch of premium features and equipment as well.
