Hero MotoCorp has commenced the dispatches of its eagerly-awaited Hero Xtreme 160R. The 2020 Xtreme 160R is available at Hero MotoCorp showrooms across the country at Rs 99,950 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the front disc with single-channel ABS version and Rs 1.04 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the double-disc with single-channel ABS variant.
Unveiled at the Hero World 2020 event, which was hosted at the Centre of Innovation and Technology (CIT) in the northern Indian city of Jaipur in February this year, the Xtreme 160R is inspired by the 1.R concept showcased at the International automotive show EICMA in 2019. The Xtreme 160R has been designed and developed completely in-house at the Company’s R&D hub – the Center of Innovation and Technology (CIT) in the northern Indian city of Jaipur, Rajasthan.
Malo Le Masson, Head of Global Product Planning, Hero MotoCorp, said, “The Hero Xtreme 160R is a real Head-turner, cat-like agility with power to weight ratio of a street racer, and tech-loaded with segment-first features like the all-LED package. This modern streetfighter is targeting to win the urban race. With this latest model, we are now offering a compelling and competitive line-up of premium motorcycles, from Street Naked to Sport with the Xtreme 200S, from Adventure with XPulse 200 to casual Touring with the XPulse 200T.”
Hero’s new Xtreme 160R comes with a 160cc air-cooled BS6-compliant engine that is powered by ‘XSens’ technology and advanced Programmed-Fuel-Injection. The motor delivers an impressive power output of 15bhp. 0-60kmph is claimed to come up in just 4.7 seconds. The motorcycle has one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its class, thanks to the low kerb-weight of 138.5kg. The lightweight rigid diamond frame setup offers exceptional handling in the streets, which should make it a corner happy machine at the same time.
The 37mm front telescopic forks and a seven-step adjustable rear mono-shock suspension setup is tuned for urban agility, providing precise handling and a smooth ride. Brakes with 276mm front petal disc and 220mm Rear petal disc are responsible for the stopping duties. Furthermore, the Xtreme 160R comes with 165mm ground clearance.
The 2020 Xtreme 160R is paired with a first-in-segment all LED package, from a sculpted full LED headlamp with LED DRLs in front, to LED indicators with hazard switch and down to the rear H signature LED tail lamp. An inverted fully digital LCD display together and the first-in-segment side-stand engine cut off are offered on the Xtreme 160R. Hero’s new 160cc motorcycle comes in three vibrant colour combinations of Pearl Silver White, Vibrant Blue, Sports Red.
