Hero MotoCorp has revealed the prices of its upcoming flagship, the Xtreme 200R, on its official website. The Hero Xtreme 200R costs INR 88,000 (ex-showroom) in eight North-East Indian states. Hero dealerships have already started accepting bookings for the Xtreme 200R.
The eight states are Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Manipur, Tripura, Nagaland, and West Bengal. Hero MotoCorp is still to launch the bike in India officially. That said, the Hero Xtreme 200R debuted publicly at the Auto Expo 2016. The prices are highly competitive as compared to other 200 cc motorcycles in the market.
For instance, the prices of TVS Apache RTR 200 4V start at INR 1.03 lakh, while the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 starts at INR 1.04 lakh (prices are ex-showroom). Hero MotoCorp has revealed that the Xtreme 200R will rival 160 cc and 180 cc bikes, in price. It makes much sense considering the performance of the bike.
As a reference, the prices of new TVS Apache RTR 160 4V fall in the range of INR 84,248 to INR 94,248. (prices are ex-showroom, Arunachal Pradesh), while the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 costs Rs 85,786 (ex-showroom). Hero MotoCorp hasn’t revealed the delivery timeline or availability in other states.
