The list of the motorcycles currently present in the Hero's line-up include Xtreme 160R, Xpulse 200, HF Deluxe BS 6, Glamour BS 6, Passion Pro BS 6, Splendor+ BS 6, Super Splendor BS 6, Splendor iSmart BS 6, Destini 125 BS 6, Maestro Edge 125 BS 6, and Pleasure+ BS 6.

Moreover, some of its major 200 cc category motorcycles such as Xpulse 200T, Xtreme 200R and Xtreme 200S have been temporarily taken down from the website due to the non availability of proper BS 6 update.

The company is expected to introduce all these bikes when the production resumes and the country is back in the stable state after the lock down is over. In addition to this, Hero Motocorp will also introduce the much awaited Xtreme 160R in India after some time.

Bikes such as Xtreme 200R, XPulse 200T, and Xtreme 200S, all belong the Hero’s ‘X’ family sharing the same engine and equipment. These bikes are differentiated based on the body styles and some cycleparts. While the Xtreme 200R is a naked street bike, the 200S is a fully-faired version of the same. These offerings share the same 199.6 cc, air-cooled, carbureted motor which produces 18.1 PS and 17.1 Nm. The engine will definitely feature fuel-injection in the upcoming BS 6 avatar.

This inclusion will make the engine ready as per the necessary emission standards and will also improve the overall performance and riding experience. This update will also hike the overall prices of the bikes.
