New Hero Xtreme 160R explained in images

The surprise package that Hero MotoCorp showcased at their recent outing a few weeks ago, was the new Hero Xtreme 160R. Sure, there were the new Passion Pro as well as the Glamour but it is always the 150cc and above that has garnered the internet’s attention. This was admittedly more given that Hero has been absent from this segment, after starting it with the CBZ. Well, we have described the motorcycle at length in this first look review. Now, its time to take a long and deep look at this well-done concoction of the new Hero Xtreme 160R in pictures.

The Hero Xtreme 160R is a street naked and doesn’t look anything like the older Heros.

The motorcycle has a robo face but then there is also the fact that these kind of designs have always been in vogue.
The new Hero Xtreme 160R has got a full-LED face along with LED indicators
The tank looks chiseled and there aren’t too many graphics as well. Should bode well for many.
The all-digital instrument console is now becoming a new Hero affair but again in the new Xtreme, it is a negative display. There is no navigation app or anything here and the readouts are simple as well.

The motorcycle looks smashing, be it from any angle.
The exhaust is short and stubby, going well with the street fighter look. We hear it has a nice baritone too.
Hero offers disc brakes on both ends but then only the front one gets ABS on it, making for a cost-effective proposition.
The seat isn’t a split unlike what the new Gixxer features but then the grab rails are neatly tucked into the bodywork.
The all-LED tail light has a smoked effect to it and depicts an H-pattern. Notice the new turn indicators as well as an entirely new tail section.
A half-covered chain section along with the 130 profile rear radial tyre will surely grab eyeballs.


Hero Xtreme 160R Engine
The Xtreme 160R’s engine is all-new and the engineers have managed to wring out 15PS of power and 14Nm of torque. It looks like Hero has learnt its lesson and moved away from a higher compression ratio engine. This one is BS-VI compliant and at the same time has a claimed flat torque curve.
