The Hero Xtreme 200S is the most affordable full faired motorcycles that you can buy in India at just Rs. 98,500, rivals Pulsar RS200
Hero launched the Xtreme 200S recently, priced at Rs 98,500 (ex-showroom) for the carburetted version and Rs. 1.05 lakh for the fuel-injected model. The motorcycle belongs to Hero’s ‘X’ lineup of premium products that also includes the Xtreme 200, Xpulse 200 and the Xpulse 200T. The fully fared Xtreme 200S rival directly against the like of the Bajaj Pulsar RS200 and the Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0. Here are the top 5 highlights of the motorcycle:
1. Fully faired offering
The Xtreme 200S is identical to its naked sibling the Xtreme 200R from side profile but gets a full fairing that adds a completely new identity to the motorcycle. The sculpted full fairing blends perfectly with the overall design of the motorcycle. However, it gets a commuter-ish seating posture thanks to its well-positioned footpeg and a wide single piece handlebar.
2. A completely new full LED headlamp
Keep in mind that the Xtreme 200S gets a full LED headlamp setup that looks much different than the round shaped LED unit of the Xpulse 200 and the 200T. This Xpulse 200S also happens to be the third motorcycle in the Hero Motocorp lineup to feature a full LED headlamp setup that promises to offer better illumination than the conventional halogen unit.
3. An advanced LCD instrument cluster
There is no doubt in the fact that the Xtreme 200S is one of the most loaded motorcycles that Hero launched recently in India. It gets an all-new advanced LCD instrument cluster.
The LCD instrument cluster features Bluetooth connectivity, turn by turn navigation system, gear position indicator and service reminder. Apart from these it also offers some other vital information including speed, RPM, two trip meters, time, date, etc.
4. Powerful and refined engine
The Xtreme 200S is powered by the same 199.6cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder motor that also powers the Xtreme 200R as well. The unit is capable of producing about 18.1 bhp of power at 8,000 rpm and 17.1 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. The unit is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.
5. An affordable fully-loaded motorcycle
The Hero Xtreme 200S is priced at Rs. 98,500 (ex-showroom). The Xtreme 200S is one of the most affordable fully faired motorcycles that comes loaded with plenty of modern features like a full LED headlamp setup, full digital LCD instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity, and a single channel ABS system for the safety of the rider.
