This is very competitive pricing and it comes well below the likes of the TVS RTR 200 4V (Rs 1.03 lakh to Rs 1.17 lakh) or the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 (Rs 1.04 lakh to Rs 1.16 lakh). This makes sense, as Hero is clear that it is not aiming to compete directly with the 200cc segment but is instead focusing on the premium 160cc and 180cc machines. For reference, the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 costs Rs 85,786, while the new RTR 160 4V variants are priced between Rs 84,248 to Rs 94,248. (All prices ex-showroom, Arunachal Pradesh)
At the moment, it is not sure when Hero plans to start deliveries or whether the Xtreme 200R will be available in other parts of the country simultaneously. Xtreme 200R runs on air-cooled, 2-valve single-cylinder engine that makes 18.4hp and 17.1Nm.
