Hero Xtreme 200R gets a proper naked bike looks but with toned muscles. In terms of design, the Hero Xtreme 200R is very similar to the Xtreme Sports; however, it is sharper and sportier looking. The bike comes in a diamond frame which is quite light and agile. Also, the style of headlamps adds to the muscularity of the bike. ‘Xtreme’ decal on the front shrouds of the bike looks a bit overdone, but still keeps the sporty looks alive. The exhaust of the bike comes with a muffler cover, adding as a finishing touch. The rear fender kit comes with a good height, hence increasing the height of the pillion seat too. In short, we can say that it is an evolution of CBZ Xtreme, but with improved technology and better handling.

|Rear Suspension||7 Step adjustable Monoshock|
|Seat height||790 mm|
The bike is made of a diamond frame type. It comes with Telescopic Hydraulic type with antifriction bush suspensions in the front and 7 Step adjustable Monoshock suspension in the rear. The suspensions are beefier than Karizma ZMR’s suspension which would help Xtreme 200R in proper handling. The length of the bike is 2062 mm with a height of 1072 mm. The ground clearance of the bike is decent at 167 mm and the seat height is 790 mm. The Xtreme 200R weighs 147 Kg.
Hero Xtreme 200R Features:
The Xtreme 200R comes with disc brakes at both ends with ABS as an option. The bike comes with LED pilot lights, LED tail light, dual-coloured seat, and a combination of digital and analogue instrument console. The digital cluster gets a clock, fuel indicator, and a trip meter. Above the digital cluster, there are basic indicators for ABS, power check, neutral gear, and indicators. Also, It gets a halogen LED headlamp. However, the bike fails to live up to the high-level technology that its competitors are offering. It might be a late entrant in the market, but with its price expectations, it can do pretty well.
Hero Xtreme 200R Competiton:
Hero Xtreme 200R competes with the likeness of Baja Pulsar NS 200, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Yamaha FZ 25. Amongst all, the toughest competitor is Apache RTR 200 4V. As Apache offers a similar naked streetfighter styling with a little more technology features, it is dominating the 200 CC market. The Pulsar NS 200 offers great value for money and performance for its asking price. On the other hand, Yamaha FZ 25 is a beast that is a good buy for traffic rides as well as touring bikes. However, it is expensive than the other three competitors which makes it a tough choice. The Xtreme 200R, despite offering fewer features than its competitor, might turn out to be a good success.
