Xtreme 200R is the Hero’s first assault into the 200cc segment. It is Hero Motocorp’s first dip into the premium segment in a while. The Xtreme 200R has a diamond-type chassis, Hero’s first indigenous rear monoshock, and an engine that is based on the Achiever’s 150cc uni

The engine doesn’t offer much in the way of additional tech – it is carburetted, doesn’t have an oil cooler, or fuel injection – it promises to offer great fuel efficiency and ride ability, one should thank to the relatively low power figure of 18.2bhp and torque figure of 17.1Nm. The Xtreme is also the lightest in class at 147 kg, which should also help in a great fuel efficiency figure. There are disc brakes present both front and rear, with the front getting ABS as standard at the time of launch.

The instrument cluster has an analogue tachometer. While this is functional, combined with the silver surround, it makes the Xtreme appear very last generation. It doesn’t lack for functions, however: dual trip meters and a clock are present in the digital part of the display. However, in the age of programmable shift lights, side stand warning indicators and top speed/lap time recorders, the Xtreme has some catching up to do.

 

However, what Hero has done is deliver value with the Xtreme 200R. Not only is it the lightest in kilos, it is also the lightest on your pocket – it undercuts the nearest displacement rival, the Apache 200, by a few thousand rupees, while offering ABS as standard.
