Hero MotoCorp has launched the 2023 edition of the Xtreme 160R 4V, and it comes with a bunch of updates giving the street naked motorcycle a sizable makeover while bringing it up-to-date with the competition. The motorcycle is now being offered in three variants- Standard, Connected and Pro. Prices start from Rs 1,27,300 for the Standard, Rs 1,32,800 for the Connected and Rs 1,36,500 for the top-spec Pro variant (all prices are ex-showroom).


The motorcycle's overall design has been slightly tweaked for a more aggressive and muscular stance with revised ergonomics. The headlamp remains the same LED unit along with LED turn indicators. The signature H-shaped tail lamp continues to be the same. Coming to the features, the new digital instrumentation is Bluetooth-enabled (not offered on standard variant) with Hero Connect 2.0 packing 25+ features. Besides that, the updated Xtreme 160R 4V is available in three new colour schemes - Matte Slate Black, Neon Night Star and Blazing Sports Red. In addition to that, the accessories list consists of bar-end mirrors, and a split and single seat option.

Coming to the mechanical updates, the Xtreme 160R 4V now features an 37mm KYB upside-down fork setup limited only to the Pro variant, while the other two variants continue to come with the same telescopic fork units. Besides giving the street naked a more pronounced aggressive stance, the USDs should aid in better handling characteristics. Meanwhile, the rear is a 7-step Showa monoshock setup. Braking hardware is now a disc brake setup at both ends, equipped with single-channel ABS. Sadly, there's no dual-channel ABS even as an option.

For to the powertrain, similar to the 4-valve cylinder head update on the XPulse 200, Hero has gone ahead with the same update for the Xtreme 160R. With the adaptation of the 4-valve head, the 163cc single-cylinder motor, now oil-cooled, is more refined and efficient. As for power figures, the engine now produces 16.67 bhp@8500 rpm and 14.6Nm@6500 rpm a minor bump in power and torque. Transmission duties continue to be handled by a 5-speed gearbox.
