adminComments Off on The Xtreme 160R, Hero MotoCorp’s newest motorcycle in the country was met with praises when it was unveiled in February. And the acclamation only continued for the 160cc motorcycle when we recently spent a few days with it. We were so impressed by the Xtreme 160R, we crowned it as the best motorcycle to roll out from Hero Motocorp.
With so many feathers of credibility in its hat, does a fully-faired version of the Xtreme 160R make sense? On the face of it, it certainly does, but there are a few more reasons why.
A sporty offering
There’s no denying India’s love for faired motorcycles because of the sporty appeal they exude. But is it reason enough to launch an all-new motorcycle?
Well, the best answer is in Hero’s stables itself. It has the Xtreme 200S; a faired motorcycle based on the Xtreme 200R. And according to dealers, even though the Xtreme 200S was more expensive, it seemed to be more popular thanks to its fairing and the LED headlamps. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if Hero decides to walk the same path with the Xtreme 160R.
Economies of scale
Hero Motocorp has always used one platform to spawn another product in recent times. Apart from the Xtreme 200R and Xtreme 200S there is the Xpulse 200 and Xpulse 200T. Even the Destini 125 scooter is based on the Maestro Edge 125. This helps the manufacturer cater to different needs and widen its audience reach while keeping costs in check. A faired Xtreme 160 would do just that.
