About Xtreme Sports

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).

Hero Xtreme Sports Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Seating comfort is one of the best in the segment
    • Softer suspension setup ideal for city
    • 149cc motor offers strong low-end torque
  • Could be Better

    • Vibration can be felt even at idle
    • Oddly placed ignition key

BikeWale's Take

The Xtreme Sports is Hero's attempt at securing a place in the 150cc market. It is a motorcycle that unfortunately offers a confused styling, vibrations and undermining performance.

Hero Xtreme Sports Review

The Xtreme Sports is a sportier version of the Xtreme sharing the same name and platform. It, however, gets new body panels in order to give it a distinctive look. The Xtreme failed to do ‘extremely’ well in the Indian market and the company is working on that.

What is it?

The Xtreme Sports is a sportier version of the Xtreme sharing the same name and platform. It, however, gets new body panels in order to give it a distinctive look. The Xtreme failed to do ‘extremely’ well in the Indian market and the company is working on that.

Market trends reflect that the consumers in the premium 150cc segment have evolved over the last couple of years and the Xtreme Sports is Hero’s answer to that.

How does it ride?

Our country’s roads have a notorious reputation for destroying many bikes, especially in the rural areas, but guess what? The Hero Xtreme Sports tackles all that effortlessly. The suspension setup is on the softer side and is perfect for the city dash. Even for long rides, it will support you well.

The only thing that I found irksome was the vibrations from the upgraded 149cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. We usually expect vibrations at higher revs, but in case of the Xtreme Sports, it starts at idling and stays all the way till the 11,000rpm. Vibrations could be felt on the handlebar, fuel tank and also foot pegs and foot brake.

The power figure on this bike has been bumped up to 15.6bhp, and it comes with linear power delivery. The low-end torque is quite impressive as the 147kg bike managed to travel well for long distances with a 100kg rider. The five-speed gearbox, however, behaves quite oddly and is not very smooth (say, like the Honda CB Unicorn 160). You will feel comfortable behind the wide clip-on handlebar if you are riding straight or are in touring mode. But try pushing the bike in the corners and the MRF Nylogrip Zapper tyres will disappoint you as it doesn’t offer good grip especially in wet conditions. The riding position of the Xtreme Sports is good, but I somehow found the rider footpegs to be oddly placed. It should have been slightly rear set.

Seating comfort is one of the best in the segment, thanks to the brilliant cushioning. Even the braking of this bike is excellent as it has good bite and feedback. All these aspects together make the Hero Xtreme Sports a decent commuter motorcycle.

Anything else I should know?

Though this motorcycle is based on the Xtreme platform, it does not come across as a cheap makeover. The overall styling of the bike is quite fresh for a Hero product but not enough to draw in the youth.  The instrument cluster is nice with its big round tachometer and LCD display area. However, one letdown could be the blue backlight which only hinders your vision rather than helping. If you are someone who likes perfection, then you won’t be pleased with the analog fuel indicator either. It doesn’t indicate real-time fuel level, rather it updates the fuel level at every 1/4th occurrence, which I found to be a waste.

I would say the same for the ignition keyhole. It is placed on the right side headlamp assembly and not below the instrument cluster, which is quite quirky. Firstly, it’s a tedious task to access the keyhole at night (and even in daylight). It gets equally difficult to switch off the bike, especially when the Xtreme Sports doesn’t get a kill switch. So stalling the bike or stretching your arm all the time is the only two options to switch off the motorcycle.  But the bike has it positives as well. The quality of switch gears is top notch and is easily one of the best in the segment. You also get a side stand indicator, which is quite useful.

 

Why should I buy one?

You should buy the Hero Xtreme Sports if you trust the Hero brand. It is a decent sporty-looking motorcycle apt for everyday riding. Long rides will be smoothly undertaken and in case of any breakdown, the service centre will be just a few kilometres away.

If you were to ask me would I buy the Hero Xtreme Sports? My answer would be – No. I would rather prefer the Suzuki Gixxer which, apart from being a great bike comes Rs 3,500 cheaper. Also, I am looking for a certain level of engine refinement, which the Sports is unable to give me.

 

Where does it fit in?

The Xtreme Sports looks more like a confused attempt by Hero MotoCorp to make a mark in the 150cc segment. I say confused because the Xtreme is priced just Rs 700 cheaper than this version, which doesn’t really make sense. It will if Hero discontinues the Xtreme in future.

Technically, the Xtreme Sports competes with the Bajaj Pulsar 150, Suzuki Gixxer and TVS Apache RTR 160. All of them are cheaper than the Xtreme Sports and few of them have even taken on a much sportier appearance through constant updates. This makes the Hero Xtreme Sports a very difficult buying proposition.  Hero MotoCorp could and should do much better in this segment. Take some more time, I say.

  •  4Good but not best in segment 4 weeks ago by Amol, Mumbai

    Pros: Seat is comfortable, riding is smooth. Pick up is good. Mileage is 46-48 after 6 years of use Cons: Gear shift issue remains.. If one use oil by motul or other high end ones, it makes a difference and reduces vibration, engine noise, gear shifting and performance
