    In recent times, Hero has tried to tap into the fast-growing premium motorcycle market but hasn’t really been able to make a major breakthrough outside of the capable Xpulse 200 4V. With this completely overhauled Xtreme 160R 4V, it is re-launching its attack and hopes to address the pitfalls of the Xtreme 2V. The Xtreme 2V has always been a fun yet practical city bike due to its nimble handling and frugal nature. Where it fell short is in the lacklustre top-end punch and its quality levels left a lot to be desired. Here, we’ll examine if Hero has succeeded in overcoming those flaws with the updated Xtreme 160R 4V.
