Hero Xtreme 200R can help hero do a comeback?

Hero Xtreme 200R is here and it is an important product for Hero Motor Corp. In past few years Hero has almost lost the ground in 150 to 200cc motorcycle segment. This one too is in the development process since years because Hero wanted to do all homework right before actual launch. Here is what I believe they have achieved with this product.

Hero Xtreme 200R Design

Hero has tried to keep the design as conventional as possible. In fact the bike looks very similar to old Xtreme’s design. Especially, the headlight part looks xtremely simple and basic.

But it can still attract lot of buyers looking for simple design in a bike because now days every manufacturer is trying to launch jazzy and striking products. It looks that designers at Hero worked only on paint schemes, decal job and fit & finish of overall bike.

Other than front looks, rest of the bike looks good, ergonomics are also nice. Seat height is 795mm to suit riders of all sizes. Overall it is a nice powerful commuter motorcycle (if you can look it this way) that you can also use for occasional long distance journeys.

Hero Xtreme 200R Engine

Hero Xtreme 200R engine is a 199.6cc air cooled unit. Experts have tested this bike on a race track. But due to Hero’s previous bike’s experience, we can say it is not a performance motorcycle.

Hero Xtreme 200R Performance and Mileage

Talking about Hero Xtreme 200RpPerformance and mileage, Hero has no such claims so far. But if you look closely and collect all data, Hero is trying to launch elegant looking commuter motorcycle capable of doing highway runs. You can expect a mileage of around 40 that is near 160cc motorcycles. Because Hero is actually challenging these bikes by playing number game.
