The Hero Xtreme 160R marks Hero MotoCorp’s entry into the popular 160cc motorcycle category. The new Xtreme 160R comes with a powerful 160 cc air-cooled BS-VI Compliant engine with Electronic Fuel Injection. The engine delivers a power output of 15 BHP @ 8500 RPM. Combined with a low kerb weight of 138.5 Kg, Hero claims a 0 to 60 kmph in 4.7 seconds.
The new Xtreme 160R looks to have a comfortable riding position and an ergonomically optimized set-up. It has a tubular rigid diamond frame with a 5 speed Gearbox.
The 37 mm telescopic front forks and a 7-step adjustable rear mono-shock suspension should provide a comfortable and smooth ride. The 130/70-17” radial rear tyre should provide a good balance between grip and low rolling resistance. Braking duties are carried out by a 276 mm Front & 220 mm rear petal disc brakes while rear drum is also an option. The 170 mm ground clearance should be just about enough to tackle the great roads and speed-breakers that we have.
The new Xtreme 160R is paired with an LED package, from front full LED headlamp to rear H signature LED tail lamp, all the way including LED Turn indicators with Hazard light switch. The reverse LED digital display should add that different feel from the competition and we are happy that it has an engine kill switch.
The Hero Xtreme 160R is available in 2 variants: Front Disc with Single Channel ABS and rear drum brake and Double Disc (Front and Rear) with Single Channel ABS. It will be available in three color options of White with Grey, Blue with Grey and Sports Red with Grey.
