Extreme is the new generation bike range of Hero MotoCorp, India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer. Hero MotoCorp on Tuesday launched the third Extreme model, the Extreme 160R, after the full-fledged version of the Extreme 200S and the Naked model Extreme 200R. Hero’s new bike, which competes with the Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Suzuki Jixar and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, was launched in March, but the company has released almost all the details.
Extreme 1.R Concept based design
The heart of the Extreme 160R is a 160cc, single cylinder, air-cooled engine that meets the BS6 pollution control standards. Powered by 15bhp of power at 8,500rpm and 14Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm, the engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The Hero claims that the Extreme 160R takes just 4.7 seconds to reach 60 km / h. If so, the Extreme 160R is the fastest bike in this segment.

The Extreme 160R comes with 37mm Showa front forks and a 7-step adjustable monoshock suspension at the rear. The rear has 130mm wide radial tires and the front 110mm wide tires. The Extreme 160R comes with 17-inch alloy wheels. The dual-disc variant features 276mm front disc and 220mm rear disc for braking. Extreme 160R built in diamond frame chassis weighs 138.5 kg. Ground clearance 170mm.
Featuring the Extreme 160R, it comes with full LED headlamps, an H-shaped tail-light, a fully digitized instrument cluster, and petal disc brakes with ABS. The other side effect is the side-stand-down engine cut-off function of the engine when the side stand is turned on.
There is no longer a hero in the 150cc bike segment
The Extreme Sports 150cc Bike Hero has been withdrawn before the arrival of the Extreme 160R. Hero has sold only a handful of extreme sports units in the last few months. This is what prompted Hero to close the sale of Extreme Sports. The sale of Hero’s 150cc bikes, such as the Hank and Achiever, had already ended. With this, Hero MotoCorp pulled out of its 150cc bike segment. The Hero MotoCorp is the new Extreme 160R with 160cc engine.
