Hero MotoCorp today unveiled the all-new Hero Xtreme 160R naked bike in India. It's the first 160 cc motorcycle from the company and the third model to join the Xtreme family after the Xtreme 200R naked bike and the Xtreme 200S full faired motorcycle. The new Hero Xtreme 160R is based on the Xtreme 1.R Concept that was unveiled at the 2019 EICMA Motor Show in Milan last year and will be a direct rival to the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V and the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160. The bike will be launched in India sometime in March 2020.
The new Hero Xtreme 160R will be powered by a 160 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that is tuned to churn out 15 bhp at 8,500 rpm and develops a peak torque of 14 Nm at 6,500 rpm. Hero claims that the bike can do a 0-60 kmph sprint in 4.7 seconds, making it the quickest bike in this segment in India.
