This deal worth Rs. 4,000, can be availed in the form of exchange and loyalty bonuses. However, the two can't be clubbed together, and are valid in select states for a limited period of time.

Design: Hero Xtreme 160R: At a glance
The Hero Xtreme 160R sits on a tubular diamond frame and sports a futuristic radical design, featuring a sloping fuel tank with extensions, a stepped-up single-piece seat, a hazard light switch, and a slightly upswept exhaust.
The bike packs an LCD console, an all-LED lighting setup, and rides on blacked-out alloy wheels.

Fact: Power and performance
The Hero Xtreme 160R draws power from a BS6-compliant 163cc, air-cooled, 4-stroke, single-cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The mill generates a maximum power of 15hp at 8,500rpm and a peak torque of 14Nm at 6,500rpm.

To ensure the safety of the rider, the Hero Xtreme 160R comes equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels along with single-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads.
Meanwhile, the suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by telescopic front forks and a 7-step rider-adjustable mono-shock unit on the rear end.
Fact: Pricing and availability
In India, the Hero Xtreme 160R is up for grabs in two trims- front disc and dual disc which are priced at Rs. 1.02 lakh and Rs. 1.05 lakh, respectively (both prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
