Hero Xtreme 200S ABS to be launched in India soon

A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.


The Hero Xtreme 200-S ABS model made its presentation at the Auto Expo 2016. The Hero Xtreme 200S launch is likely to take place soon after a debut at the Auto Expo 2018. The forthcoming Hero motorbike will competing the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. Prices of the 200S will be publicized only at the time of the launch. However, it is only safe to expect a starting price of INR 95,000 for the non-ABS model. Targeting to capitalize on the strong brand image that the ‘Xtreme’ moniker likes in India, the Xtreme 200S is a very stylish street naked. We are sure that the new Hero Xtreme 200S ABS will be a fairly more accomplished motorcycle than the current Xtreme. It will also become the first all-new performance concerned with Hero bike since the separation with Honda. Read on for more on the Hero Xtreme 200S India Launch Date, price, mileage, and specifications.

Hero MotoCorp has not been vocal about the Xtreme 200cc model’s market launch. The Hero Xtreme 200S ABS could launch about festive season of 2017. Once launched, the Xtreme 200S will become a direct rival to the TVS Apache RTR200 4V and the upcoming Bajaj Pulsar 200NS FI. Hero MotoCorp is not famous to price its products ultra-competitively. However, prices are probable to be at par with the RTR200. While an ABS-equipped model was showcased at the Expo, the Xtreme 200S could even offer a non-ABS model at a lower price. Price range of this bike could start at approximately Rs.95, 000. The 200S might, at this price point, could end up being just a tad pricier than the forthcoming Pulsar model and the Apache RTR200.

Powering the Xtreme 200-S ABS is a new 200-cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, air cooled engine that puts out a max. Power-torque of 18.5 BHP-17.2 NM. Coupled to the engine is a 5-speed manual transmission. Conventional front forks upfront and a mono suspension at the rear perform the suspension duties. Braking is courtesy of disc brakes at both front and rear wheels. The Xtreme 200S will become the first Hero bike in India to have ABS. Built around a diamond type chassis, the Hero Xtreme 200cc model boasts muscular and aggressive looks. The stylish extensions for the fuel tank have faux air vents. Other interesting bits contain an engine cowl and a lumpy tailpiece that goes on to lend a big bike look to the Xtreme 200S ABS. Some more styling highlights of this bike include a big clear lens headlamp with LED pilot lights, LED-effect tail lamp, dual tone seat upholstery, body-colored rear mudguard, red-painted front alloy wheel and very sporty semi-digital speedo console. The alloy wheels have a diameter of 17-inches along with a fashionable, swirl-star design. Overall, the bike looks certainly stylish and muscular.
