The Hero Xtreme 200R is a much-awaited bike. It gets a pure naked street design with some racing abilities. The prices of the bike for West Bengal and North Eastern states have already been declared at Rs 88,000 (ex-showroom). In some parts of the North Eastern states, the deliveries have also started. We expect the bike to launch by end of July for the rest of India. The bike looks much similar to the Xtreme Sports, as it is built on CBZ’s heavily reworked body. The bike sports a 200cc engine that helps it in achieving a top speed of around 120 Km/hr. Although it misses out on some features when compared to its other 200cc rivals, it is the cheapest amongst its lot. It is cheaper than many 160cc bikes too. So let’s get to know more about the features, specs and mileage of the bike.

Hero Xtreme 200R gets a proper naked bike looks but with toned muscles. In terms of design, it is very similar to the Xtreme Sports; however, it is sharper and sportier looking. The bike comes in a diamond frame which is quite light and agile. Also, the style of headlamps adds to the muscularity of the bike. ‘Xtreme’ decal on the front shrouds of the bike looks a bit overdone, but still keeps the sporty looks alive. The exhaust of the bike comes with a muffler cover, adding as a finishing touch. The rear fender kit comes with a good height, hence increasing the height of the pillion seat too. In short, we can say that it is an evolution of CBZ Xtreme, but with improved technology and better handling.

The Xtreme 200R comes with disc brakes at both ends with ABS as an option. The bike comes with LED pilot lights, LED tail light, dual-coloured seat, and a combination of digital and analogue instrument console. The digital cluster gets a clock, fuel indicator, and a trip meter. Above the digital cluster, there are basic indicators for ABS, power check, neutral gear, and indicators. Also, It gets a halogen LED headlamp. However, the bike fails to live up to the high-level technology that its competitors are offering. It might be a late entrant in the market, but with its price expectations, it can do pretty well.

Hero Xtreme 200R competes with the likeness of Baja Pulsar NS 200, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Yamaha FZ 25. Amongst all, the toughest competitor is Apache RTR 200 4V. As Apache offers a similar naked streetfighter styling with a little more technology features, it is dominating the 200 CC market. The Pulsar NS 200 offers great value for money and performance for its asking price. On the other hand, Yamaha FZ 25 is a beast that is a good buy for traffic rides as well as touring bikes. However, it is expensive than the other three competitors which makes it a tough choice. The Xtreme 200R, despite offering fewer features than its competitor, might turn out to be a good success.
