The Hero Xtreme 200S is expected to be Hero’s next big launch.
The Hero Xtreme 200S was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo as the next step in the Xtreme family. The bike has been rendered in a much more aggressive state by a BikeAdvice reader.
The digital rendition does away with the red rear mudguard and has been extended to hold the registration plate and indicators. The white decals have been reduced while the headlamp console has been coloured in black. The added visor will help protect the rider from wind blast.
The seat and front alloy wheel also get black treatment. The fuel tank, exhaust canister and the rest of the body has been kept stock. The Hero Xtreme 200S will be positioned by Hero MotoCorp as an everyday motorcycle with an extra grunt over the average 150 cc motorcycle.
The Hero Xtreme 200S is powered by a new 200 cc single cylinder, air-cooled mill coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine is capable of producing 18.6 PS of maximum power at 8,500 rpm and 17.2 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. Features include LED lights, rear monoshock suspension and a diamond type chassis.
Hero claimed that the Hero Xtreme 200S is inspired from the cheetah. The model from the Auto Expo got disc brakes and ABS which may be standard in the production version.
The Hero Xtreme 200S is to be launched before the next Auto Expo in February 2018.
