Hero MotoCorp has launched the all new Hero Xtreme 160R in India.
The new Xtreme 160R comes with a 160cc air-cooled BS-VI Compliant engine that is powered by the XSens technology and advanced Programmed-Fuel-Injection. The Engine delivers an impressive power output of 15 BHP @ 8500 RPM. Joining the fast lane with a class leading acceleration - 0-60 km/h in 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 37mm Telescopic Front Forks and a 7-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 ensure that the rider is always in full control and confident of the stopping power. The 165mm ground clearance ensures the ride is hurdle free.
The new 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. The inverted fully digital LCD display together with the first-in-segment side-stand engine cut off ensure the motorcycle is both technologically advanced and safe.
The new Xtreme 160R will be available at Hero MotoCorp showrooms across the country at an attractive price point of Rs. 99,950/-* (Front Disc with Single Channel ABS) and Rs. 1,03,500* (Double Disc with Single Channel ABS).
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 street fighter 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.”
Naveen Chauhan, Head – Sales, After Sales & Parts, Hero MotoCorp, said, “Ever since the Xtreme 160R was showcased at the Hero World 2020 event, we have been getting a very high number of requests for its commercial launch. The initial response for the motorcycle has been very positive and we already have inquiries to match the dispatches. We are confident that the Xtreme 160R will help us in scaling-up our presence in the segment.”
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.
Xtreme 160R is available in two variants - Front Disc with Single Channel ABS and Double Disc (Front and Rear) with Single Channel ABS and three vibrant color combinations of Pearl Silver White, Vibrant Blue, Sports Red.
