Hero has gone ahead and launched a fully-faired version of the Xtreme 200R. Called the Xtreme 200S, it has been priced at Rs 98,500. This makes it Rs 7,600 more expensive than the Xtreme 200R that costs Rs 90,900 (prices, ex-showroom Delhi).
While its styling might suggest otherwise, Hero has said that the Xtreme 200S is targeted at riders looking for ‘character and comfort’ in their daily city ride. It is not a sporty motorcycle. However, Hero has said that the fairing will give the 200S better wind protection on the highway than its naked sibling – the 200R. Hero has also said that the 200S uses the same chassis and geometry as the 200R.
The 200S also comes equipped with a full-LED headlight and taillight. The instrument cluster on the motorcycle is also Bluetooth-enabled like on the XPulse models which were launched today as well. This instrument cluster displays information like navigation, gear position and more.
The Xtreme 200 S uses the 199.6cc from the 200R that makes 18.4hp at 8,000rpm and 17.1Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Transmission is via a five-speed unit and the engine is a conventional, carburetted, air-cooled two-valve unit. Braking is taken care of by a 276mm disc up front and a 220mm disc at the rear. Single-channel ABS is part of standard equipment. Like the 200R, the 200S isn’t available with fuel-injection.
In terms of competition, the Xtreme 200S goes up against Suzuki Gixxer SF, prices for which start at Rs 98,076 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Hero Xtreme 200S is available in three colours – red, brown and black.
