BS6 Hero Xtreme 200S engine and features
As expected, the updated Hero Xtreme 200S is powered by the same 199.6cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine as the one on the BS6 Xpulse 200. Peak output figures stand at 18.08hp at 8,500rpm and 16.4Nm of torque at 6,500rpm, in comparison to the BS4 bike’s 18.4hp at 8,000rpm and 17.1Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Another significant change is the addition of an oil-cooler.
The oil-cooler and the catalytic converter in the exhaust have brought with them a 5.5kg increase in weight, putting the BS6 Xtreme 200S’ at 154.5kg. The rest of the bike, meanwhile, remains largely identical to the BS4 model.
The Xtreme 200S features Hero’s AutoSail system - a system that keeps the bike from stalling at slow speeds - and is now available in a new Pearl Fadeless White colour scheme.
BS6 Hero Xtreme 200S price and competition
At Rs 1.15 lakh, the BS6 Hero Xtreme 200S is a notable Rs 13,000 more expensive than the BS4 model. Despite the hike, it continues to be a very competitively priced motorcycle, considering that its most direct rival, the smaller Suzuki Gixxer SF, is priced at Rs 1.22 lakh.
The Xtreme 200S began reaching dealerships earlier this week, and deliveries of the bike are underway.
