The most obvious change visually on the Hero Xtreme 160R 4V is the new golden 37mm KYB USD fork which beefs up the front of the bike. The new monoshock is a 7-step preload adjustable unit by Showa. This special suspension hardware is only available on the top-spec Pro variant and the other two variants make do with a telescopic fork/monoshock setup.

The bike can be had with either a single seat or split-seat setup, both interchangeable and the tank extensions are longer and angular. It also gets a dual-tone paint scheme and a redesigned full-LED headlight. The new switchgear is more premium than before and is the same as the one on the updated Hero Xpulse 200 4V.

The 163cc, single-cylinder engine now features an oil-cooler in addition to being air-cooled, and also has a more modern 4-valve head. This mill now makes 16.9hp at 8,500rpm and 14.5 Nm at , which is an increase of 1.7hp over the 2-valve Xtreme 160R. The Standard and Connected variants of the Xtreme 160R 4V weigh 144kg, while the Pro variant weighs 145kg. The 12 litre fuel capacity and the rest of the cycle parts remain the same as the Xtreme 160R 2V

The Hero Xtreme 160R 4V gets a Bluetooth-enabled negative LCD display with call and notification alerts. The bike is also available with accessories including single seat, phone mount, bar end mirrors and more.
