Hero MotoCorp recently hit the 100 million units production milestone and the company plans to celebrate the landmark figure with a number of limited-edition models. The first to arrive from the lot is the Hero Xtreme 160R 100 Million Edition that will go on sale soon. The model has been listed on the company's website with the 'coming soon' caption, and the bike will sport a special colour scheme and decals to give it a special touch.
Cosmetic upgrades expected on the Hero Xtreme 160R 100 Million Edition include a new dual-tone paint scheme in red and white. While the red paint dominates the headlamp cluster, fuel tank and front fender, the second half of the fuel tank and the tail panels are finished in white. There are new decals though on the white shade to enhance the look of the model.
Barring the aesthetic changes, do not expect the Hero Xtreme 160R special edition to sport any mechanical changes. The bike will continue to use the 163 cc single-cylinder engine tuned for 15 bhp and 14 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with a 5-speed gearbox. The bike is also well-packaged from a feature standpoint with a digital console, full-LED lighting, hazard switch, side-stand engine cut-off, auto sail functionality for less fatigue during traffic, and more.
