Hero Motocorp recently launched the Xtreme 200S in India. The fully-faired motorcycle is based on the underpinnings of its street naked sibling, the Xtreme 200R. What are the differences and similarities between the two? We find out in this comparison between the Xtreme 200S and Xtreme 200R.
The motorcycle comes across as an appealing package, thanks to its sporty design, modern features and a 200cc motor. However, the Indian market offers more options in this ballpark and we take a look at them.
This is the fully faired version of the Xtreme 200R. It is priced at under a lakh ex showroom in Delhi, and it makes no pretence of being an out and out sports bike. It is still for the Aam aadmi; still for the commuter junta; and still for those who will only own one motorcycle. But, Hero says the extra pizzazz the 200S brings in, is something even commuter centric consumers want.
