Taking the popular Xtreme series towards a more premium segment, Hero MotoCorp unveiled new Xtreme 200 S at 2016 Auto Expo. A powerful, muscular and dynamic motorcycle, the Xtreme 200 S comes packed with enhanced performance and assured riding capabilities with rear mono suspension and modern safety features like ABS.
Shaped along the form of a ‘Cheetah’, the youthful appeal of Hero Xtreme 200 S is further accentuated by aggressive styling elements. The compact packaging of mechanical elements like mono-shock, engine, footrest and muffler cover at the bottom signifies weight concentration at the base, further enhancing the formidable look of the motorcycle.
The design of the bike is focused on providing a strong and powerful riding experience. The conscious adaptation of features like air vents in the front cowl, tank-shroud and belly-pan enhance cooling and improve the power of the engine. The effort has been made to focus the weight in front while adding a vertical flow towards the rear to create a harmonious synergy between body and mechanical elements.
Powered by an air-cooled, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 200cc engine, the upcoming Xtreme 200 S delivers a maximum power of 18.35bhp at 8,500rpm and a maximum torque of 17.2Nm at just 6,000rpm. The engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox. Built on the strong diamond type chassis design, the Xtreme 200 S features rear mono suspension, front and rear disc brakes and LED lights.
The bike is expected to be launched in early 2017 and after that, it will directly rival the new TVS Apache RTR 200 4V.
