Hero MotoCorp has launched its updated Xtreme 160R 4V motorcycle in India at a starting price of ₹1.27 lakh (ex-showroom). The motorcycle comes revising the two-wheeler brand’s focus in the 160 cc segment, where TVS has products like Apache RTR 160 4V. With the growing focus on premium products from Indian consumers, the 160 cc segment is more like a premium commuter category rather than a premium lifestyle motorcycle space. Hero MotoCorp is the largest two-wheeler brand in the country and in the world, and it aims to tap the premium segment. The automaker has long been dreaming to grab a chunk of this space and the revised Xtreme 160R 4V comes as a key part of that strategy.
Both the Hero Xtreme 160R and the TVS Apache RTR 160 are popular products in the 160 cc segment of the Indian motorcycle market. Priced at a range of ₹1.24 lakh- ₹1.32 lakh (ex-showroom), and powered by a 159.7 cc engine, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is a strong competitor against the Hero Xtreme 160R. Both the naked streetfighter motorcycles come with striking and aggressive designs that appeal to a large number of young buyers.
