    Default The new old from Hero's stable: Xtreme 200r

    A few days ago, a lazy day turned out to be a fun and happening one when I got to one of Hero showroom in my city. The intention was to drive the new Xtreme 200R, hero's participant in the 200cc sector. The 18.35PS power mill churning out 17.1Nm torque has nothing on the spec sheet to attract the customers with respect to it's competitors like Apache 200 4V.

    But still talking about the positives, it maintains the quality that a consumer seems in a Hero i.e. comfort, usable power, simplicity, reliability, cost efficiency etc. All between this, what is missed is a track racer performance.

    The bike is a sheer pleasure to ride in the city having little more than needed power coming from a 200 engine. But considering performance from this machine would lead you to a head down.

    Summing my experience in short, I would like to go to pros and cons.



    Pros:
    1) A good 200cc commuter with hero's durability.
    2) A fun-to-ride and powerful motorcycle for city riding and local touring.
    3) One would really appeciate it's paint job.( I personally like the blue one)



    Cons:
    1) Not a proper 200cc machine when compared to competitors.
    2) The pricing can be a little lower.
    3) Can consider as characteristic of the younger xtreme with an elder engine.


    Be safe! Ride safer!! Always wear helmet while riding.

    PS: The test was offered by Kusumgar hero, Nagpur

    I liked the Blue colour option as well. It's a striking color, quite different from the other bikes in the market.
