The base variant of Hero Xtreme 160R comes with a 276mm disc brake at the front and a 130mm drum brake at the rear along with single-channel ABS. There is a higher variant that gets a 220mm disc at the rear. The double-disc variant has better braking performance and inspires a little more confidence compared to the drum variant. There is also a side stand indicator on the instrument console and the engine ignition is cut-off if the bike is parked and the side stand is open.
