Hero MotoCorp teases upgraded Hero Xtreme 160R set to debut on June 14, 2023. What to expect

Hero MotoCorp is set to launch an upgraded version of its popular 160 cc sports commuter, the Hero Xtreme 160R, on June 14, 2023. The motorcycle is expected to feature upgrades such as USD front forks, revised instrument console, fresh color choices, and Bluetooth connectivity.

Hero MotoCorp has released a sneak peek of an upcoming motorcycle scheduled to launch on June 14, 2023. Although the manufacturer has provided only a glimpse on social media, it is highly probable that the anticipated model will be the enhanced Hero Xtreme 160R.

 The popular 160 cc sports commuter from Hero was recently seen undergoing testing with numerous upgrades. It is expected that these upgrades will contribute to its competitiveness in the segment.

To recall, the Hero Xtreme 160R, initially introduced in 2020, is set to undergo its first significant upgrade since its launch. In addition to ensuring OBD compliance for the engine, the upcoming motorcycle is expected to feature USD front forks instead of the current telescopic forks. 

Furthermore, the updated Xtreme 160R is anticipated to showcase a revised instrument console, fresh color choices, and the inclusion of Bluetooth connectivity. This connectivity could potentially offer turn-by-turn navigation, a feature already present in the Xtreme 160R Stealth 2.0 variant. It would be logical to make this feature standard across the motorcycle's lineup.

Currently, the Hero Xtreme 160R is available at a starting price of 1.18 lakh, reaching up to 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), varying depending on the chosen variant. With the introduction of the anticipated upgrades, it is expected that the motorcycle's price will increase by approximately 10,000-15,000. The Xtreme 160R competes in a highly competitive segment, featuring notable rivals such as the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Suzuki Gixxer, and other similar offerings.

In addition to the upcoming Xtreme 160R, Hero MotoCorp has several new motorcycles in the pipeline for the latter half of the year. Among these anticipated releases is the speculated Karizma XMR 210, a model that has been the subject of rumors for some time now. We eagerly await further information on these upcoming models in the near future. Stay tuned for updates in this space.
