The new Xtreme 160R gets minor design tweaks and no mechanical changes!
With prices starting at Rs. 1,17,148 for the single disc, Rs. 1,20,498 for the dual disc, and Rs. 1,22,338 for the Stealth edition, Hero MotoCorp has rolled out the upgraded versions of the Xtreme 160R in the Indian market (ex-showroom, New Delhi). In the fiercely competitive segment, it faces off against the freshly released Bajaj Pulsar N160 and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.
The motorcycle gets a new pillion grab rail and a revised design to its single-piece seat. Almost every other area of its design remains identical to the previous motorcycle.
No mechanical modifications have been made to the new Hero Xtreme 160R. The compact chassis and lightweight construction of the naked motorbike, which is regarded as one of the sweet packages available in its class, continues to translate into nimble road manners.
The motorcycle continues to be powered by the same 163 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that produces 15 bhp and 14 Nm. The twin disc and Stealth variants come with dual disc brakes and a single-channel ABS system. Telescopic front forks and a rear mono-shock with preload adjustment are in charge of the suspension.
