Launched earlier this year, the company dealers have begun accepting bookings for the Xtreme at a down payment of INR 1,000. The new Xtreme is available in five colors of black, red, silver, black-red and orange and is priced at INR 67,364.
To draw attention to the sporty and exciting new Xtreme, Hero has launched an official TV commercial which has also been uploaded on YouTube. Projecting the ‘Live off the Edge’ factor, the promo showcases how the rider easily manages to wear shirt and pant while riding the new Xtreme. He also manages to tie shoe lace whily doing a wheelie. By the time he is dressed, he arrives at his girlfriend’s house only to find her also not ready as she too prefers to get ready while riding pillion on the new Xtreme. All this while ad showcases the features of New Xtreme.
While the duo is busy dressing and performing stunts on Hero Xtreme, various features draw ones attention. The new Xtreme is based on the existing CBZ Xtreme model with new headlights, indicators and LED tail lights along with a part digital cluster, side stand indicator and new graphics.
Akin to CBZ Xtreme, the new Xtreme will also sport a 149.2 cc, four stroke, single cylinder engine with peak power of 15.2 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 1.30 kgm torque at 6,500 rpm mated to a five speed gearbox. The Hero Xtreme will be presented with 240mm front disc brake and 220mm rear disc brake as option to 130mm drum brake. Xtreme will give Bajaj Pulsar set to get a facelift, Yamaha FZ models and Honda CB Trigger some serious competition.
While the TVC presents the new Hero Xtreme in all its glory, its caution note – Do not imitate these stunts and the fact that both rider and passenger are professionals and are wearing helmets.
