Hero Xtreme 200R is a commuter bike available in 1 variant in india. Its price starts from ₹92,884 (ex-showroom). Hero Xtreme 200R generates 18.1 bhp of power and 17.1 nm of torque from its 199.6cc engine. Single cylinder engine of Xtreme 200R has a 5 speed manual gearbox. With both rear and front disk brakes, Hero Xtreme 200R also has an anti-locking braking system. This 149 kg bike is available in 5 colours.
Hero’s first foray into the 200cc segment is this, the Xtreme 200R. It is Hero Motocorp’s first dip into the premium segment in a while. The Xtreme 200R has a diamond-type chassis, Hero’s first indigenous rear monoshock, and an engine that is based on the Achiever’s 150cc unit.
While the engine doesn’t offer much in the way of additional tech – it is carburetted, doesn’t have an oil cooler, or fuel injection – it promises to offer great fuel efficiency and rideability, thanks to its relatively low power figure of 18.2bhp and torque figure of 17.1Nm. It is one of the smoothest in the business, however, and there isn’t much need to keep changing gears in the five-speed gearbox. The Xtreme is also the lightest in class at 148kg, which should also help in a great fuel efficiency figure. There are disc brakes present both front and rear, with the front getting ABS as standard at the time of launch.
The instrument cluster has an analogue tachometer. While this is functional, combined with the silver surround, it makes the Xtreme appear very last generation. It doesn’t lack for functions, however: dual trip meters and a clock are present in the digital part of the display. However, in the age of programmable shift lights, side stand warning indicators and top speed/lap time recorders, the Xtreme has some catching up to do.
However, what Hero has done is deliver value with the Xtreme 200R. Not only is it the lightest in kilos, it is also the lightest on your pocket – it undercuts the nearest displacement rival, the Apache 200, by a few thousand rupees, while offering ABS as standard.
