New Delhi: Hero MotoCorp, India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, recently held its second edition of Hero World, a showcase of its products and innovations, at its Research and Development hub, the Centre for Innovation and Technology (CIT), which is located in Jaipur. One of the surprise announcements to come from the event was the Xtreme 125R, a new commuter bike that looks stylish and modern when compared to most other 125 cc commuter bikes.
The Xtreme 125R is powered by a 124.7 cc, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine that is tuned to produce 11.4 bhp at 8,250 rpm and a peak torque output of 10.5 Nm at 6,000 rpm. It comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and has a fuel tank capacity of 10 litres. The bike also features a digital instrument console, a USB charging port, and a kill switch.
The Xtreme 125R looks like a mini naked streetfighter bike with its low-slung LED projector headlamps while the LED Daytime Running Lamps sit above. The fuel tank looks muscular and there is a split seat setup with split grab rails. The bike also has a diamond frame that is suspended by 37 mm telescopic forks in the front and a hydraulic shock absorber at the rear. Braking duties are performed by a 240 mm disc in the CBS variant whereas the ABS variant gets a 276 mm disc in the front. At the rear, there is a 130 mm drum brake.
The Xtreme 125R will be offered in three colour schemes – Cobalt Blue, Firestorm Red and Stallion Black. The bike will compete with the likes of the Bajaj Pulsar 125, Bajaj Pulsar NS125, Honda SP 125 and TVS Raider 125, which are also popular 125 cc commuter bikes in the Indian market.
