Finally, there’s a Hero for us to desire!
Janak Sorap

Let me be honest here. In all my recent memories of riding Hero’s motorcycles, none have really made me want them. As rude as that may sound, there’s a reason why I stand by it. Motorcycles are supposed to fill your heart with joy, not leave you with a rather incomplete feeling. Given my previous encounters, I had prepared myself for a similar experience on my way to the Hero dealership to collect the new Xtreme 160R. The previous examples bearing the Xtreme tag didn’t do anything for me, so why would this be any different? However, as I walked up to the Xtreme 160R for the first time, all my mind said was, ‘Damn, Hero, you’ve caught me by surprise here.’

The Xtreme 160R looked modern and contemporary; the dual-tone color scheme, especially in the red-and-grey combination, clearly giving out the message that you don’t want to take it lightly. The front face has a droid-looking all-LED headlamp which is captivating and is followed by smooth flowing lines running along the bike’s length to finish in a stubby tail section. On the whole, the Xtreme 160R has its mass concentrated between its axles, making it look balanced and complete, I’d say.
