Hero MotoCorp recently surpassed the significant milestone of 100 Million (10 Crores) units in cumulative production. The 100 millionth bike, the Xtreme 160R, was rolled out of the company’s manufacturing facility in Haridwar, in the northern Indian hill state of Uttarakhand. In doing so, Hero became the only Indian automotive manufacturer to surpass 100 million. To mark the occasion, Dr Pawan Munjal, Chairman & CEO, Hero MotoCorp, unveiled six special celebration edition models at the Company’s manufacturing facility at Gurugram, located in the National Capital Region (NCR) of Delhi.
And now, the company has officially launched the Xtreme 160R 100 Million Edition in the Indian market. The new special edition version of the Hero Xtreme 160R motorcycle is offered with a price tag of Rs 1.08 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).
Although Hero tried its hand at the 150cc power-commuter segment earlier as well with the likes of Hunk and the CBZ Xtreme, both the motorcycles failed to leave a mark. However, that changed with the Xtreme 160R and this particular motorcycle managed to win the hearts of motorcyclists around the country. The 100 Million Limited Edition takes the sportiness of the Xtreme 160R miles ahead. The motorcycle is has a dual-tone shade of red and white. It is safe to say that the red accents on the limited-edition motorcycle accentuate the sportiness even further. Apart from the new dual-tone shade and a ‘100 Million Limited Edition’ logo/badge on the fuel tank, everything remains exactly the same as the standard motorcycle.
