Hero Xtreme 160R Latest Update

A test mule of the Xtreme 160R has been spied testing. Here’s what we think it could get. Earlier, Hero also launched the Stealth Edition 2.0.


Hero Xtreme 160R Price:

The Hero Xtreme 160R’s price is Rs 1,18,616 (for the base rear drum brake variant). The standard Hero Xtreme 160R (dual disc variant) will set you back by Rs 1,21,966. The Xtreme 160R Stealth Edition retails at Rs 1,23,806 (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). The bike is available in four colours: Pearl Silver White, Vibrant Blue, Sports Red and Matte Black (Stealth Edition). Meanwhile the Stealth 2.0 has been priced at Rs 1,29,738, all prices ex-showroom Delhi.


Hero Xtreme 160R Features: 

The most notable feature on the Xtreme 160R is the segment-first all-LED lighting system. It also gets a fully digital instrument cluster with side stand indicator apart from the regular trove of information. While it features a ‘Welcome Message’ feature, there’s no real time mileage indicator, which the more affordable Hero Passion Pro gets. The streetfighter also comes with a hazard lamp warning function for better safety. Hero has equipped the bike with single-channel ABS as standard on both the variants. The Stealth Edition comes with a brightness-adjustable instrument cluster, gear position indicator, and a USB charging port under the handlebar. The Stealth Edition 2.0 also comes equipped with Hero Connect, allowing you to trace the live location of the bike as well as receive an alert once it crosses a pre-set speed limit.


Hero Xtreme 160R Engine: 

The Hero Xtreme 160R is powered by an all-new 163cc single-cylinder air-cooled fuel-injected engine. It makes 15.2PS at 8500rpm and 14Nm at 6500rpm and works in tandem with a 5-speed transmission. Hero MotoCorp claims the Xtreme 160R can accelerate from 0-60kmph in 4.7 seconds. 


Hero Xtreme 160R Suspension & Brakes: 

The Hero Xtreme 160R is built on a tubular diamond frame linked to a 37mm telescopic front fork and a 7-step preload adjustable rear monoshock. The 17-inch alloy wheels are shod with 100-section front (tubeless) and a 130-section rear (radial tubeless) rubber. For braking, the bike uses a 276mm front petal disc while the rear gets either a 220mm petal disc or a 130mm drum, depending on the variant. In any case, single-channel ABS is standard. In terms of heft, it weighs 138.5kg for the base variant and 139.5kg for the rear disc brake-equipped variant. 


Hero Xtreme 160R Rivals: 

The Hero Xtreme 160R is a competitively priced, sporty-looking, feature-packed offering in the 160cc streetfighter segment, which is currently dominated by the Bajaj Pulsar N160, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Suzuki Gixxer and Yamaha FZ-S Fi Version 3.0. In its price bracket, you also have alternatives like the Bajaj Chetak electric, Bajaj Pulsar 150 Twin Disc, TVS Apache RTR 160 2V and TVS Apache RTR 180.

Xtreme 160R Expert Review

The 160cc segment is highly competitive, with motorcycles offering differing but persuasive blends of performance, practicality and features. Hero MotoCorp is the last major bikemaker to enter this segment and it seems to tick all the right boxes when it comes to styling, features and performance. Can the Xtreme 160R impress in the real world though? It is available in two variants: single disc and top-spec twin disc, which is the one we are reviewing here. 

Design and Features

We first saw the Xtreme 160R in concept form at the 2019 EICMA as the Xtreme 1.R Concept. Incredibly, the compact design with tightly packed body panels has been carried over virtually unchanged from the concept to the production motorcycle. We especially liked the tail section design which gets a smoked LED tail lamp and pillion grab rails that are cleanly integrated into the tailpiece. It gets an impressive paint finish and comes in three colours: white, black and red. The fit and finish is good and the glossy paint quality adds to the appeal of the motorcycle. If we were to nitpick, the switchgear could have had a more upmarket design.

Ground clearance



Fuel tank capacity



The Xtreme 160R’s compact dimensions are emphasised by its short wheelbase. So, it's no surprise that the single-piece seat steps up sharply for the pillion. Truth be told, it looks cool. The fuel tank capacity is on par with the segment with just the Yamaha FZ-FI having a larger 13-litre fuel tank. Despite the Apache having a significantly higher ground clearance than the Xtreme 160R, it is enough to clear the largest of speed breakers.

Engine and Performance

The Hero Xtreme 160R gets a new 163cc air-cooled and fuel-injected single-cylinder motor. Like Hero’s 200cc bikes, the Xtreme 160R uses a 2-valve head. It is the most powerful 160cc two-valve motor around and loses out only to the four-valve TVS Apache RTR 160 4V and Bajaj Pulsar NS 160. A major caveat in this comparison is that the performance data shown here, except for the Hero, is for the BS4 versions.

City FE





Highway FE





*-Test figures are for BS4 bikes. 

This two-valve motor, as intended, offers the most performance in low to mid-range revs i.e. 3000rpm to 6000rpm, which is very helpful in the city where you can cruise at speeds as low as 25kmph in 5th gear. This, in turn, translates to a fantastic city fuel-efficiency. Not having to shift gears too much is all the more enjoyable as the 5-speed gearbox has a notchy shift action. On the upside, it doesn’t miss shifts. 

Hero Xtreme 160R: Road Test Review

Multiplying the usability of the motor is its refinement. It remains vibe-free in low- to mid-rpms with just a slight buzz felt through the footpegs at around 8000rpm. Not that you will want to rev it that high very often because it lacks top-end performance. As a result, the Xtreme 160R struggles to get up to triple-digit speeds. The Xtreme 160R feels comfortable cruising at speeds of 80kmph but you have to plan overtakes beforehand. It feels the strongest between 4000rpm and 6500rpm after which power tapers off. Instead of revving it to the 9500rpm redline, shift earlier at 8000rpm for quicker acceleration. Predictably, the highway fuel-efficiency figure drops down to 47.38kmph. 

Overall, the Hero Xtreme 160R’s motor impresses in the city but not so much on the highway.

Braking and Handling

The Xtreme’s suspension deserves high praise. It gives a nice layer of cushioning over uneven roads without feeling nervous or sloppy. It absorbs most road undulations and keeps the rider well isolated from sharp potholes and edges. Its well-tuned setup feels soft but does not bottom out easily. The Hero Xtreme 160R packs a 37mm front fork setup by renowned suspension maker Showa and gets a 7-step preload-adjustable monoshock. It is commendable that Indian bikemakers are going for premium suspension, especially in the 160cc segment. Another example is the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V that uses a Showa monoshock. 

Hero Xtreme 160R: Road Test Review

Where the Xtreme impresses is with its handling prowess. It feels light and agile, especially in city traffic. Thanks to the short wheelbase and light kerb weight, the Xtreme responds well to the slightest of handlebar inputs. In the twisties, the 160R feels eager to dart into corners but does not feel twitchy doing so. It gets 100-section front and 130-section radial rear tyre. The MRF tyres grip well and help keep the bike stable under hard cornering and braking.

TVS Apache RTR 160 4V (BS4)







Hero Xtreme 160R: Road Test Review

For braking, the Xtreme 160R gets a large 270mm front disc and an optional 220mm rear disc with single-channel ABS. Under our braking tests, the Xtreme took 38.81 metres to stop from 80kmph and 22.90 metres to stop from 60kmph. While these figures are on par with the segment, the brakes offer a good bite and feedback through the levers. We are glad to note that ABS intrusion is also minimal.  

Overall, the Xtreme 160R is a fantastic handler and should keep novice and expert riders entertained through a set of corners.

Safety and Features

The Hero Xtreme 160R is the first bike in its class to get all-LED lighting i.e. LED headlamps, LED tail lamps and LED turn indicators. The headlamp offers a strong and wide beam spread but the high beam, rather than lighting up the road ahead, is focussed higher. Like others, the Xtreme 160R too gets a digital instrument console.

Hero Xtreme 160R: Road Test Review

It also features a cool-looking negative LCD display with large, legible fonts. It has the de rigueur tachometer, speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer and trip meter but misses out on a gear position indicator and range indicator. Unlike most of Hero’s 200cc bikes like the XPulse 200 and the Xtreme 200S, the Xtreme 160R doesn't get Bluetooth connectivity. While it is a talking point, we wouldn't count it as a major miss.
