The new BS6 Hero Xtreme 200S has been finally launched in India. The manufacturer has been quite late in launching the environment friendlier model of its only fully-faired 200cc bike in India but as they say, it’s better late than never! The new BS6 model has been launched at a price of Rs 1,15,715 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The last known price of the BS4 model is Rs 99,400 and having said that, the new model demands a hefty premium of around Rs 16,000 compared to the outgoing one. In addition to the updates that make the bike emit lesser now keeping the environment in mind, the BS6 Xtreme 200S gets a new colour scheme better known as Pearl Fadeless White. The newly launched BS6 Hero Xtreme 200S also gets one year of complimentary Road Side Assistance (RSA) that offers 24×7 assistance to customers across the country with benefits like on-call support along with repair on spot, towing to the nearest Hero workshop and more.
