  • Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R Design and Build

    Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R

    The Xtreme 160R is one of the best looking bikes in its segment. It has a rather compact footprint and an aggressive streetfighter design. The bold LED headlamp gives the front of the bike a very mean look. Moving to the side, you notice the muscular fuel tank and the short but beefy looking exhaust. The integrated grab handles for the pillion look neat and are functional as well. The seat cushion rises as you move towards the back and ends in an H-shaped LED tail lamp.

  • Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R Riding Ergonomics

    Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R

    The suspension setup on the Hero Xtreme 160R has been tuned to deliver sporty performance. As such, the 37mm forks at the front and the 7-step adjustable monoshock at the back provide a rather stiff ride. This will give you confidence while taking corners and filtering through traffic but will not provide the most comfortable ride quality. The bike comes with a single-piece stepped seat with a soft cushion that will not bother you even after a long journey.

  • Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R Engine

    Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R

    Hero Xtreme 160R is powered by a 163cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that makes 15hp and 14Nm of torque. Hero claims a 0-60kmph time of just 4.7 seconds and that has been made possible due to the abundance of torque in the low-end of the rpm band. The bike can easily sit at low speeds even while you are in a higher gear. It does seem to struggle a little towards the top-end and the climb from 80-100kmph takes a while. Vibrations are kept in check for the most part, except when you cross 6000rpm.

  • Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R Transmission

    The engine on the Xtreme 160R comes paired with a 5-speed gearbox that has a one-down and four-up shift pattern. The clutch action is decently light and people who plan to use this bike for daily commutes will not get tired even while wading through heavy traffic. Shifting of gears is smooth and easy with no false neutrals in between.

  • Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R Braking and Safety

    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.

  • Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R Mileage
