The Xtreme 200R is the first fully faired motorcycle from Hero in ages. The bike sports a single piece headlamp, surrounded by a black insert. The smoked windscreen adds to the sporty appeal of the bike. The muscular tank and the step-up single piece seat enhances the overall look of the bike. The bike also has a bigger rear sprocket than the Xtreme 200S. It is available in three colors – Sports Red and Maple Brown and Panther Black.
The bike features a fully digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity. It offers turn by turn navigation instructions, service reminder, gear-position indicator and then some more.
