Design

The Hero Xtreme 160R has compact dimensions but gets a busy, muscular styling that makes it stand out from its competitors. The handlebar, powertrain, and alloy wheels get a blacked-out finish, while the rear grab rail has been integrated into the bodywork. The Xtreme 160R was showcased in a two-tone white and grey paint job. When launched, expect the motorcycle to be available in more colours.

Features
Hero Xtreme 160R

The Hero Xtreme 160R is the only motorcycle in its segment to get all-LED lighting i.e. LED headlamp, LED tail lamp, and LED turn indicators. Its full-digital instrument console features a speedometer, tachometer, odometer, fuel gauge, and clock. However, it misses out on a gear position indicator, which the Suzuki Gixxer gets. It also gets a hazard lamp, another segment first.
