Almost two years after making its debut in concept form at the 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi, the Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 200 India launch date has been confirmed. Hero MotoCorp will launch the new Xtreme 200 at a press conference in Delhi on January 30, 2018. Teased with the caption, “What’s nXt”, the upcoming motorcycle will be launched at a press event in Delhi.
In case you missed our previous reports, the new Xtreme 200 is a muscular street fighter with enhanced performance and dynamics. The motorcycle comes equipped with a rear mono suspension instead of the conventional two-sided unit on previous variants. It also features styling elements like air vents in front cowl, tank-shroud and belly-pan. The new Xtreme 200 is built on a diamond type chassis design and features front and rear disc brakes, and LED lights.
Mechanical updates are the primary talking point as this is the most powerful Xtreme variant till now. Powered by an air cooled, single cylinder, 4-stroke 200cc engine, the bike delivers a maximum power of 18.6 PS at 8500 rpm and maximum torque of 17.2 Nm at 6000 rpm. The engine is mated to a five-speed gear box.
The motorcycle will compete against the existing crop of 200cc motorcycles such as the TVS Apache RTR200 4V, and the Bajaj Pulsar NS200. We’d keep you posted with all the latest updates as and when they’re available. Stay tuned.
