We recently had the opportunity to experience the Xtreme 125R in the flesh. The overall stance is quite modern and radical. At the front, there is an LED projector headlamp setup with LED DRLs.

Since this borrows a lot of elements from the large 160-cc bike from Hero in a slightly toned-down variant, there is a lot to like. The grab handles are well-suited for a sporty stance. It also gets an intuitive LCD display from the larger bike. It displays all the relevant information for the rider. The switch gear offers a tactile feeling with an engine kill switch. The overall stance is definitely that of a bulk motorcycle, something that would appeal to a whole lot of young buyers.
