What really works in favour of the Xtreme 160R is its pricing and feature list. You can choose between two variants: single disc and twin disc, priced at Rs 99,950 and Rs 1,03,500 (ex-showroom) respectively. At this price point, it undercuts pretty much all of its competitors.
Powering the bike is a BS6-compliant 160cc engine that makes 15.22PS at 8500rpm and 14Nm at 6500rpm, mated to a 5-speed transmission. It also weighs in at 138.5kg (kerb), which gives it a power to weight ratio of 109.89PS/tonne.
It gets some segment-first features too. For starters, the Xtreme 160R comes with all-LED lighting, hazard lights and a side-stand engine cut off switch. Other than this, the bike gets a full-digital instrument console and integrated pillion grab handles.
It's pretty conventional on the hardware front -- a telescopic fork and a 7-step adjustable monoshock. Braking is handled by either a front disc and a rear drum setup or a twin-disc setup depending on the variant. Single-channel ABS comes as standard. Its 17-inch wheels come wrapped in 100/80 tyres up front and 130/70 at the rear.
