Xtreme 160R price increment has made the motorcycle costlier and gradually it is losing its value for money tag in the segment…
The world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer – Hero Motocorp is unassailable in the entry-level motorcycle segment. However, when it comes to 150 cc and above segments, the company has a very limited presence.
However, with the launch of the 200s and the Xtreme 160R things are now looking better for the manufacturer. All of them started their lives at striking price tags but like others, Hero is also increasing their prices continuously. After one in January, the Xtreme siblings (along with others) have seen considerable price increments.
Xtreme 160R Price
|Xtreme 160R Self + Single Disc||Rs 1,07,490|
|Xtreme 160R Self + Dual Disc||Rs 1,10,540|
|Xtreme 160R 100 Million Edition||Rs 1,12,340|
Xtreme 160R’s rear drum brake variant was previously available at Rs. 102,000 in the country. Hero increased it to Rs 1,03,900 in January and the latest price hike of Rs 3590 makes it costlier by over 5 percent (or Rs 5490 effectively) within four months!
On the other hand, the disc brake version of the bike, which was sold at Rs 1,06,950 after a hike in January, also costs Rs 3590 more now and has seen a similar 5+ percent price increment (since Jan 2021).
Another new variant, Xtreme 160R 100 Million Edition has joined the portfolio and it sits at the top becoming the third costliest motorcycle to be on sale in the premium 150-160cc motorcycle segment!
Xtreme 200S Price
|Xtreme 200S||Rs 1,20,214|
Coming to the elder sibling, the Xtreme 200S witnessed a relatively lesser increment of Rs 3000. This comes after it became costlier by Rs 1500 in January (Price Rs 117,214). Effective price increment this year is Rs 4500 or almost 4 percent.
Both these hikes are more than Hero’s announcement of an upto Rs 2500 price increment it made last month! While both the motorcycles have witnessed hikes, they do not see any mechanical or cosmetic updates, as they both remain exact same motorcycles as they were before.
