Hero Xtreme 200S 4V launched at Rs 1.41 lakh
Hero Motocorp has finally given the 4-valve treatment to the Xtreme 200S. Retailing at an ex-showroom price of Rs 1.41 lakh, the motorcycle packs more punch than its 2-valve ancestor and even ships with a new split-type handlebar, a rear tyre hugger, and Bluetooth connectivity options now.
The updated Xtreme 200S 4V is powered by a single-cylinder, 200 cc, four-valve, oil-cooled engine. It generates 18.8bhp at 8,000rpm and 17.35Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. Compared to its predecessor, the engine delivers 6 per cent more power and 5 per cent more torque. The motorcycle still has a 5-speed gearbox, but Hero claims that it has been improved for better tractability, acceleration, strength, and durability.
Cosmetically, the motorcycle is unchanged except for the addition of a new split-type handlebar and a rear tyre hugger. Hero says that this new handlebar will marginally improve the touring capabilities of the motorcycle. The motorcycle will also be available in three colour options - Moon Yellow, Panther Black Metallic, and a premium Stealth Edition.
The Hero Xtreme 200S 4V even gets a Bluetooth enabled digital instrument cluster. This is the same cluster that does its duties on the Xpulse 200 and the Xpulse 200T. This means the Xtreme now has turn-by-turn navigation as well as call and SMS notifications on the instrument cluster.
The Xtreme 200S 4V has conventional telescopic forks up front and a seven-step preload adjustable mono-shock at the rear. It has 17-inch alloy wheels on both ends and disc brakes on the front and rear. The motorcycle also features LED headlamps with DRLs, while the indicators are halogen units. The tail light also incorporates an LED setup.
Priced at Rs 1,41,250 (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Xtreme 200S in its 4V avatar is almost Rs 6,000 more than the outgoing 2-valve model. This 4-valve upgrade, on the other hand, puts the Xtreme 200S on par with the Xpulse siblings.
