The all-new Hero Xtreme 160R was listed on the company’s official website in March, which hinted that its launch was imminent. However, the COVID-19 pandemic caused a delay in its launch. Since Hero MotoCorp has restarted its operations now, it could launch the highly anticipated Xtreme 160R in India soon.
Following the Indian Govt’s guidelines with regards to resumption of manufacturing, industrial and commercial business activities, Hero MotoCorp has restarted its manufacturing facilities. The company has also resumed its retail operations and reopened more than 1,500 touchpoints including authorised dealerships and service centres. In just 3 days after reopening, the company’s dealerships have sold 10,000+ units.
Since things appear to be slowly getting back on track, Hero MotoCorp is expected to launch the pending BS6 XPulse 200 and the much-awaited (BS6) Hero Xtreme 160R. With the latter, the company will re-enter the hot 160-200 cc segment.
The Hero Xtreme 160R was unveiled at the Hero World 2020 event. The 160 cc motorcycle was quick to grasp attention thanks to its dynamic styling. Speaking of styling, the Xtreme 160R is one of the best-looking bikes Hero MotoCorp has ever made.
