Apart from its dynamic styling and interesting features, the Hero Xtreme 160R is also known for its peppy performance. Hero MotoCorp claims that the 163cc single-cylinder engine, that produces 15bhp of max power at 8500rpm and 14Nm of peak torque at 6500rpm, is capable of accelerating the motorcycle from 0 to 60km/h in just 4.7 seconds. We have already conducted a Hero Xtreme 160R acceleration test to verify the brand’s claim. However, have you ever wondered how fast can the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V adversary can go in each gear? Let’s find out in the video below.

Uploaded by YouTuber Ali Kidwai, the video shows us Hero Xtreme 160R’s top speed in each gear. It can be seen that in the first gear, the motorcycle is able to achieve 40km/h. In the second gear, it reaches 68km/h. The third takes the bike to 92km/h whereas, in the fourth, it achieves 107km/h. The rider appears to run out of tarmac and, thus, can’t clock the top speed of the motorcycle in the fifth gear. However, one of his earlier video clips, that has been included in this video, shows that the Hero Xtreme 160R can reach up to 123km/h in its top gear.
