Hero MotoCorp is hard at work on a slew of new and improved motorcycles. The bikemaker has already launched the four-valve Xpulse 200 4V and the Xpulse 200T 4V and now they're getting ready for the four-valve Xtreme 200S. The 2-valve engine initially seen on the Xpulse 200 has since been phased out of Hero's 200cc series with the exception of the Xtreme 200S. This forthcoming motorbike was sighted ahead of its planned release in our market. The spy shots show the cosmetic changes that the Xtreme 200S 4V will get. There are three colours available for the Xtreme 200S 2V at the moment: Pearl White, Panther Black, and Sports Red. Spy photos reveal a new 2023 Hero Xtreme 200S 4V that is mostly Yellow with some Black details and looks familiar to the Karizma ZMR's side graphics. Expect an increase in pricing from the present Xtreme 200S which cost Rs 1.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) due to the addition of the 4V engine.
What's New in the 2023 Hero Xtreme 200S 4V?
The upcoming Xtreme 200S 4V will have identical styling as the two-valve model but with more pronounced graphics. Spy shots show a motorbike with a two-toned paint job in yellow and black, with updated artwork on the fairing, side panels, and rear which reminds us of the Hero's popular Karizma lineup. The four-valve version of the bike looks the same as the current one, with the same single-pod LED headlamp and LED taillight, the same Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster, the same step-up seat, the same side-slung exhaust, and the same 17-inch alloy wheels.
2023 Hero Xtreme 200S 4V: Mechanical Changes
Mechanically, it will be identical to the current Xpulse 200 4V pair. Because of this, the next Hero Xtreme 200S will have a 199.6cc single-cylinder air/oil-cooled four-valve engine capable of producing 18.83bhp at 8,500rpm and 17.3Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. A five-speed gearbox will be coupled to this motor. The E20 fuel standard and OBD2 compatibility are expected to be standard on this model.
2023 Hero Xtreme 200S 4V: Features
Suspension responsibilities on the new Hero Xtreme 200S 4V will be handled by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock in the back, much as on the current model. Both wheels will have disc brakes, and a single-channel anti-lock braking system will provide additional safety. The motorbike will have 17-inch wheels shod with tubeless tyres in 100/80 and 130/70 sections respectively front and back. The new Hero Xtreme 200S 4V will also get a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster.
