Hero MotoCorp on Tuesday introduced the much-awaited Xtreme 160R in the Indian market. The bike was originally slated to be launched in the earlier part of 2020, but the launch was delayed due the lockdown and coronavirus related complications.

It features a BS 6-compliant 160 cc air-cooled engine which delivers 15 PS of power at 8,500 rpm. Hero claims that the bike has a class-leading acceleration of 0 to 60 km/h in 4.7 seconds. It is also claimed to have one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its segment, thanks to the low kerb-weight of 138.5 kg.
