In the 100cc segment, they are getting ready to launch new Passion Plus. In the above 150cc segment, they will launch updated Xtreme 160R with USD forks, Karizma 210, Xtreme 200S 4V, Xpulse 420cc, Xtreme 420cc, etc. Of these, it is the Xtreme 200S 4V that has now been spied undisguised at a dealer, ahead of launch.
2023 Hero Xtreme 200S 4V Launch Soon
Hat tip to Automobile Tamilan for the exclusive images. There is no change in design, except for a new colour. Currently, the Xtreme 200S 2V is offered in a choice of three colours – Pearl White, Panther Black and Sports Red. The new 2023 Hero Xtreme 200S 4V seen in spy shots here, is finished in a dual tone of Yellow with Black accents.
Xtreme 200S is currently Hero’s only faired motorcycle. Karizma XMR 210 is under testing and is likely to be launched by the end of 2023. Hero Xtreme 200S doesn’t sell as much as Hero would have liked. To boost sales and desirability factor, Hero is soon going to offer it a 4V head. A 4V head will ensure a more lively performance. Something Xtreme 200S needs. Hero’s 4V head first debuted with Xpulse 200. Then it was made available with Xpulse 200T.
The current 200S is powered by a 199.6cc single-cylinder, a two-valve, oil-cooled motor that pushes out 17.8 bhp and 16.45 Nm of peak torque. The upcoming motorcycle will feature the same engine but with a 4-valve setup which will not only improve performance figures but also provide better fuel efficiency. This unit will continue to be paired with the same 5-speed gearbox. It is likely to deliver 18.8 bhp and 17.35 Nm in its new avatar.
Hardware configurations of the bike will also be carried forward from the current bike. Suspension duties will also be handled by telescopic forks up front and a mono-shock at rear. Braking setup gets updated with new petal disc in the front as well as rear. Likely to be same brakes that we see in new Xpulse 200 4V.
To Be Feature Loaded – Modern Tech, Bluetooth
In terms of features, Xtreme 200S gets a fully digital instrument console that is enabled with Bluetooth connectivity. It also reads out a wide range of data from the gear position indicator, service reminders and more. Like the other new launches, Xtreme 200S 4V will also be offered with Hero Connect telematics which offers a long list of connected features.
This system comes embedded with an e-SIM which can communicate with the cellular network to establish a link between the device and application. Some notable features offered under this system include Geo-fencing, real-time mileage alert, last parking location, in-built navigation to name a few. The location-based features will be powered by Google Maps.
Hero Connect can also analyse riding behaviour and inform the user in case there are issues with their riding style. Users can set a speed limit and receive notification in case the limit is exceeded. Another key vehicle safety feature is a tow-away alert. Prices of 2023 Hero Xtreme 200S 4V are likely to be in the range of Rs 1.4 lakh to Rs 1.45 lakh, ex-sh.
