Hero Xtreme 200S Launch Image Gallery
The Xtreme 200S is essentially the sportier-looking sibling of the Xtreme 200R. Feast your eyes on our detailed gallery from the launch event!
The newly launched Hero Xtreme 200S is more of a sports tourer than an out-and-out track bike. The Indian bikemaker has emphasised on everyday usability but with a hint of sportiness, thanks to the faired design. The motorcycle is priced at Rs 98,500, ex-showroom Delhi.
It comes with a single-piece handlebar and a single-piece seat for comfortable ergonomics. The beefy fairing also gives the Xtreme 200S a big-bike feel to an extent.
The instrument cluster is the same unit as found in the XPulse 200. This all-digital unit comes with Bluetooth pairing capability which allows turn-by-turn navigation too. It also shows gear position, service reminder, and tripmeter details apart from the regular trove of information.
The switchgear looks pretty standard and the positioning of the choke knob feels a bit odd. Hero could’ve gone for a conventionally-placed choke below the horn button.
The large single-piece seat should offer good comfort, and the little hump on the rider’s seat is for lower-back support. Also, the generously-sized tank pad should help protect the surface from scuff marks.
The Xtreme 200S shares the same engine as the Xtreme 200R. The 199.6cc single-cylinder air-cooled, carburetted powerplant generates 18.4PS at 8000rpm and 17.1Nm at 6500rpm. It works in conjunction with a 5-speed transmission.
Hero offers a 276mm disc up front and a 220mm disc at the rear, with single-channel ABS as standard. These are the same ones found in the Xtreme 200R.
The suspension (telescopic front forks and 7-step adjustable rear monoshock) is also shared with the Xtreme 200R. However, Hero has tweaked the damping of the front forks to handle the added weight of the fairing.
The Xtreme 200S rolls on 100-section front and 130-section rear radial tyres from MRF. Though its exhaust looks slightly sportier than the Xtreme 200R’s end can, it could’ve been designed better.
