The motorcycle market is expanding day by day. Because of the heavy traffic and overpopulation. Motorcycles are easy to use and comfortable to ride. Many people now using motorcycles for daily use. For that many motorcycle companies are manufacturing newly designed and advanced featured motorcycles to grab the market.
The Hero is one of the popular and leading two-wheeler company in India. It also doing business in Bangladesh with a high number of market share. Hero’s motorcycles are one of the cheapest and cost-effective. Recently Hero revealed their 160cc segments bike Hero Xtreme 160R in India. This is the first motorcycle in the 160cc segment of Hero and this bike will available in India from March 2020. This naked sports bike has to compete with Honda CB Hornet 160R, Bajaj Pulsar NS 160, TVS Apache RTR 4V. Hero didn’t announce the market price of this bike. Hope this bike will be available in Bangladesh very soon.
Design & looks: The basic design of this bike comes from its elder sibling Hero Xtreme 200. But the front and rear view of the bike gets some changes. The integrated fuel tank extension kit looks strong and curved design and it ended in the middle of the side panel. The fuel tank looks more muscular because of this extension kit. The headlight unit gets a robotic shape and looks attractive and equipped with LED lights. The H-shaped smoked finished tail lamp is also LED. The single barrel exhaust looks bulkier and gets a stubby carbon muffler. The overall appearance of this bike looks muscular and carrying the DNA of a naked sports bike.
Engine performance: This is the first time Hero introduces a 160cc engine in the motorcycle market to compete in the 160cc segment. This naked sports bike equipped with a single-cylinder, four-stroke, air-cooled, 160cc EFI engine and can burn out 15.2 PS maximum power at 8500 rpm and 14 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. This engine power is quite enough to compete in the 160cc segment. This engine is mated with a 5-speed gearbox and a wet multi-plate clutch for smooth transmission. According to the company, this engine can reach 0-60 km/h in just 4.7 seconds which is quite impressive. The top speed of this bike would be around 130 km/h.
Dimensions & seating position: The seating and riding position of this bike is ergonomic. They used a pipe handlebar instead of the clip-on handlebar and a long and wide single stair seat. The riding footpeg is also mounted a little bit behind to give it a sporty appearance. The pillion seat is also comfortable and gets an integrated grab handle beneath the seat. The overall dimension of this bike looks standard. The seat height and ground clearance of this bike are 780 mm and 170 mm respectively.
Suspension & Brakes: This bike revealed with two variations, dual-disc version, and single-disc version. The dual-disc version gets a 276 mm disc in front and 220 mm disc brake in the rear wheel. And the single-disc version gets 276 mm disc in the front and 130 mm drum brake in the rear wheel. Both these versions are equipped with a single-channel ABS braking system. But we couldn’t say that this bike will launch in Bangladesh with ABS. The telescopic fork suspension in the front and a Mono-shock suspension are installed. The single downtube chassis gives this bike a steady balance. The front tyre of this bike is 100/80-17 and the rear tyre size is 130/70-17. Both tyres are tubeless.
Mileage: Mileage is not an important issue for a naked sports motorcycle. But the motorcycle companies are trying to provide better mileage on their bikes. Because of the EFI system, this motorcycle can provide almost 42 km/l average mileage. This mileage would be increased to 45 km/l on the highway.
Instrument Panel & Features: The instrument console is fully digital and rationalizes with informative features. The dashboard comes with a Dark theme just like the Yamaha FZs V3. It contains odometer, fuel gauge, tachometer, trip meter, clock, and many more useful features.
