Hero MotoCorp has extended its product portfolio in Nepal with the launch of the Xtreme 200R at the ongoing 2018 NADA Auto Show 2018. The company has priced it at NPR 2,86,500 (INR 1.79 lakh) in Nepal. In India, the retail price is INR 89,900 (ex-showroom).
The Hero Xtreme 200R ABS is designed and developed by Hero MotoCorp’s in-house R&D team, at the Centre of Innovation and Technology, Jaipur.
The specifications are identical to the Indian-spec model. The motorcycle uses the 200cc air-cooled, BS-IV compliant engine that is tuned to produce 18.4 PS of maximum power @ 8,000 rpm and 17.1 Nm of peak torque @ 6,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The motorcycle accelerates from 0 to 60 km/h in 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 114 km/h.
A 276 mm front disc and 220 mm rear disc brakes provide the stopping power while single-channel ABS comes as standard. Conventional telescopic front forks and a rear monoshock perform suspension duties.
Feature list includes LED Pilot Lamps, LED Tail Lamp with guide lights and a digital-analogue information cluster. The motorcycle is available in five colour options – Heavy Grey with Orange, Black with Sports Red, Sports Red, Panther Black with Force Silver and Techno Blue.
The launch of the Xtreme 200R in Nepal is aimed to further boost the sales. In August 2018, Hero MotoCorp registered 685,047 unit sales as against 678,797 units in the corresponding month last year. Hero MotoCorp has registered a record 34,69,661 unit sales of two-wheelers in the first five months (April-August 2018) of this financial year (FY’19) thereby registering a growth of 10% over the corresponding period of the previous fiscal.
In India, Hero MotoCorp will launch two new scooters during the festive season – Destini 125 (formerly known as the Duet 125) and Maestro Edge 125. The company will offer the Destini 125 as a premium family scooter and the Maestro Edge 125 as a model targeted at the youth.
