Hero MotoCorp has expanded its 200 cc product portfolio with the launch of three new motorcycles in the Indian market – Xpulse 200, XPulse 200T and Xtreme 200S. In this post, we bring you an extensive gallery of 35 official images of the Xtreme 200S. All 35 images are available in the gallery at the end of the story.
To give you a quick recap, the Xtreme 200S, the fully-faired version of the Xtreme 200R naked roadster, retails at INR 98,500*. In comparison, the Xtreme 200R retails at INR 90,900*. The Hero Xtreme 200S will rival the Suzuki Gixxer SF and the Bajaj Pulsar 180F in the domestic market.
The Xtreme 200S shares its chassis, engine, suspension and brakes with the Xtreme 200R, but it packs several more features over the naked roadster. The headlight, for example, is a full LED unit on the Xtreme 200S, while the Xtreme 200R comes with a conventional halogen unit. The cockpit features a full-digital instrument console instead of a semi-digital unit on the Xtreme 200R. Also, the fully-faired version's instrument console offers Bluetooth connectivity for turn-by-turn navigation. The design of the exhaust is also different.
The full fairing with a tall-windscreen provides relief from windblasts, which will come handy at highway speeds. The upright ergonomics, along with the full fairing, should give the Xtreme 200S decent touring prowess. The Hero Xtreme 200S can be purchased in three colour options - Sports Red, Mapple Brown and Panther Black.
Powering the Hero XTreme 200S is a 199.6 cc air-cooled, single-cylinder, 2-valve, SOHC engine with a carburettor that delivers 18.4 PS at 8,000 rpm and 17.1 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. A fuel-injection system will be introduced with the BS-VI upgrade by March 2020. The engine is paired with a five-speed constant mesh gearbox. Conventional telescopic front forks and an adjustable monoshock perform the shock absorption tasks. Single discs on both wheels provide the stopping power, while the safety net of single-channel ABS comes as standard.
