    India’s leading two-wheeler maker Hero Motocorp is about to make it’s much awaited debut in the 200 cc motorcycle segment. Hero has already tried their luck with the Xtreme brand name earlier. But the Xtreme 150 was unable to take a clear lead in a very competitive segment. The Xtreme 200R does come with a few similarities especially on the rear but Hero has done more than enough to give this bike a distinct identity. The bike gets Pilot LEDs on the front and LEDs on the rear which also gets grab handles for the pillion. The most likeable bit is the tank that looks appealing and provides good gripping area for the knees. Use of graphics on the tank is also a job well done. The Xtreme 200R runs on a single cylinder 2-valve 200cc engine that is carbureted. Maximum power on offer is 18.1 bhp at 8,000 rpm and at 6,500 rpm you get a peak torque figure of 17.1 Nm. Shams Naqvi rides the bike at the Buddh International circuit.
