Hero Xtreme 160R Stealth Edition 2.0: features and underpinnings
The Hero Xtreme 160R Stealth Edition 2.0 comes equipped with Hero Connect, allowing you to trace the live location of the bike as well as receive an alert once it crosses a pre-set speed limit. The Stealth Edition also comes draped in a black livery, with red accents on the fork bottoms, monoshock, engine head, pillion footrest hangers and rear grab rails. It is also equipped with knuckle guards, which aren’t available on other Xtreme models. This new colourway does look quite striking, although the knuckle guards don’t go with the overall silhouette of the bike.
The Stealth Edition, however, is mechanically identical to the regular Xtreme 160R, powered by a 163cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine that makes 15.2hp and 14Nm of torque. Suspending the Xtreme 160R Stealth Edition is a 37mm telescopic fork and a seven-step preload adjustable monoshock. Braking duties are handled by a 276mm petal disc at the front and a 220mm disc at the rear, with single-channel ABS. The Xtreme 160R Stealth Edition 2.0 comes shod with a 100/80-17 tyre at the front and a 130/70-R17 tyre at the rear. It has a 12-litre tank and fully fuelled, it weighs 139.5kg.
