Hero Xtreme 160R Design.
Styling wise the bike looks very attractive and contemporary and futuristic it brings a fresh new design to the segment where other designs seem to be aging we get an led headlamp up front that looks nice and striking we also get led turn indicators the alloy wheels also get a swanky design moving on to the profile the tank is perfectly sculpted and oozes some muscle and sophistication with its design language, i also love the short stubby exhaust which puts out a throaty exhaust note at the back the led tail lamp looks really cool and the overall design feels very modern and something out of the ordinary the seat is again well spaced out to offer adequate room for the rider as well as the pillion the speedo console is a negative lit display so reading the fonts right underneath the sun is slightly difficult a white or yellow backlit display would have been much better in my opinion we do get a hazard light switch which really comes in handy to enhance visibility in rainy as well as foggy conditions and yes for all those engine kill switch fanboys we do get a kill switch with an integrated starter button which is really cool. and the Hero Xtreme 160r available in 3 exciting color options that are Sports Red, Pearl Silver White, Vibrant Blue, and the red and white 100 Million Limited Edition.
