The Xtreme Sports is a premium 150cc commuter motorcycle, targeted at young customers looking for a stylish yet efficient motorcycle for their daily commute. While it is based on the standard Xtreme, the Xtreme Sports gets a slew of cosmetic and mechanical updates to help it rival the likes of Suzuki Gixxer, Honda CB Unicorn 160 and the Yamaha FZ Version 2.0.
To visually differentiate it from the standard Xtreme, Hero MotoCorp has equipped the Xtreme Sports with a redesigned cowl near the fuel tank and one underneath the engine. Hero has also included a revised headlamp unit and an instrument cluster as a part of the package. It also gets a wider rear tubeless tyre, a new handle bar, split seats and revised front and rear fenders. In true Hero fashion, the Xtreme Sports also gets a host of new colour options and decals.
For once, the changes are more than just skin deep. While the Xtreme Sports will employ the same 149.2cc used in the standard motorcycle, the power has been bumped up from 14.2bhp to 15.2bhp while the torque has been increased from 12.8Nm to 13.5Nm. The engine is mated to the same five-speed constant mesh gearbox. Other mechanical upgrades include a new five-step adjustable rear suspension and the option of a rear disc brake, for improved stopping power.
The Xtreme Sports is offered in five paint schemes – panther black, mercuric silver, fiery red, pyro orange and black/red. The prices of the Hero Xtreme Sports starts at Rs 76,226 (ex-showroom Delhi).
