The motorcycle will lock horns with the likes of TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Bajaj Pulsar AS200.

The Hero Xtreme 200 S compact sports bike which was unveiled last week at 2016 Auto Expo has been detailed in an official video. The Apache RTR 200 4V rival is expected to go on sale later in the year.

Styling wise, the Xtreme 200 S is an edgier version of the existing 150 cc model. The motorcycle dons sporty tank extensions, familiar bikini fairing with LED pilot lamps, digi-analog instrument console, thin contoured seat, sharp-edged tailpiece with LED taillight, belly pan in air vents and a simple silencer with a silver guard. The white-red-black color theme feels a bit overdone, though.

Power comes from a new 200 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which generates 18.5 PS power at 8,500 rpm and 17.2 Nm torque at 6,000 rpm. A transmission is a 5-speed unit.

The Xtreme 200 S is equipped with the regular telescopic fork at the front while the rear gets mono-shock suspension system. Both wheels are retarded by a disc brake each. The motorcycle also benefits from ABS.

Hero Motocorp is gearing up to arm itself with a range of compact sports bikes which includes the Xtreme 200 S, HX250 and possibly an even bigger displacement motorcycle based on the XF3R concept. The objective is to gain a sizable market share in the burgeoning segment.
