In an effort to rev up demand in the ongoing festive season, Hero MotoCorp has launched the BS VI-compliant Xtreme 200S at Rs 115,715 (ex-showroom Delhi). This pricing is around Rs 13,000 more than the BS IV version.
The updated Hero Xtreme 200S is powered by the same 199.6cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine as the one on the BS VI Xpulse 200. Peak output figures stand at 18.08hp at 8,500rpm and 16.4Nm of torque at 6,500rpm, in comparison to the BS IV bike’s 18.4hp at 8,000rpm and 17.1Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Another significant change is the addition of an oil-cooler.
The oil-cooler and the catalytic converter in the exhaust have brought along with them a 5.5kg increase in weight, putting the BS VI Xtreme 200S’ weight at 154.5kg. The rest of the bike, meanwhile, remains largely identical to the BS IV model.
Some product highlights include twin LED headlamp and LED tail-light, Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, Auto-Sail technology, chiselled rear cowl design, anti-slip seats, full digital LCD cluster with gear indicator, trip meter and service reminder, 7-step adjustable mono shock suspension, 276mm front disc with single-channel ABS and 220mm rear disc for added safety.
Commenting on the launch, Naveen Chauhan, Head – Sales and Aftersales, Hero MotoCorp, said, “The new Xtreme 200S showcases our focused approach to the premium segment. Our premium products like the Xtreme 160R and XPulse 200 BS-VI are receiving an overwhelming response from the customers. I am confident that the Xtreme 200S will build on their success.”
Malo Le Masson, Head of Strategy, Hero MotoCorp, said, “Our horizontal strategy catering to all customer categories has worked really well and has allowed us to grow our market share in the premium motorcycle segment. We are confident that the BS-VI Xtreme 200S will continue its strong performance and further fortify our presence in the segment.”
