Thoughts On The Hero Xtreme 200R

The Hero Xtreme 200R is a premium offering from the Indian two-wheeler manufacturer. The Xtreme 200R will rival the likes of TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and the Bajaj Pulsar NS200. But we feel that Hero might be late to launch the Xtreme 200R in India as the motorcycle lags in terms of technology, performance and styling.
