Hero Xtreme 160R revealed — Hero has taken the wraps off the entry-level addition to the Xtreme range of motorcycles. The Hero Xtreme 160R draws design inspiration from the Hero 1R concept that was showcased last year at the EICMA Motor Show.
When the motorcycle is launched later this year, it will be available in two variants — a model with front disc alone and the other with disc brakes at both ends. Both variants of the motorcycle will come standard with a single-channel ABS and will be available in three colour options: White with Grey, Blue with Grey, and Sports Red with Grey.
Powering the motorcycle – as the name implies – will be a 160 cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine that makes 15 bhp and 14 Nm of torque with the help of a 5-speed manual gearbox mated to a wet multi-plate clutch.
The engine is BS6 compliant and when taken into account the weight of the motorcycle – 138.5 kg – the Hero Xtreme 160R manages power to weight ratio of 109 hp/tonne, making it probably the most powerful in the segment (160cc segment). The engine allows the 160R to accelerate from 0–60 km/h in 4.7 seconds, claims Hero.
Features include an LED headlight, an H-shaped tail lamp. LED turn signals, an LCD display that takes over as the instrument cluster, and an engine cut-off function when the side stand is down.
The Hero Xtreme 160R is suspended on 37 mm telescopic front forks while a mono-shock takes care of damping and rebound at the rear. The new naked 160 cc motorcycle from Hero gets 17-inch alloys wrapped in a 130-section rear tyre.
Stopping duties are taken care of by a 276mm front disc and the rear gets a 220mm disc on the dual disc variant of the Xtreme 160R, while the entry-level Xtreme stands 170 mm off the ground in terms of clearance.
