Hero Xtreme 1R Concept; Production Model Expected In 2020
Hero Xtreme 1R concept motorcycle has been recently showcased by the brand at the EICMA 2019. With a futuristic design and an aggressive stance, the production variant of the successor to the Xtreme 200R is expected to be unveiled by the end of the year 2020.
Specifically designed to target the younger audience, the Hero Xtreme 1R concept motorcycle features sharp styling in addition to getting a sports bike persona. The kerb weight of the motorcycle stands at just 140kgs, all thanks to its sleek design profile while the LED headlight setup further adds to its sports bike look.
Coming to the rear, the motorcycle features a smaller tail profile flowing towards the rear while featuring an LED taillight and a GoPro camera just below it. The combination of red, white with blackened-out body panels further offer the concept variant a distinguished character.
The brand has equipped the concept variant of the motorcycle with a floating rider saddle though, the production variant might not come out with the same aggressive stance.
The slick tyres offered to the motorcycle in addition to a bulky front apron looks splendid and one cannot expect the brand to offer the same to the production variant. Hero MotoCorp has equipped the motorcycle with Xtreme 200R chassis with chunkier tyres but they are highly unlikely to be carried onto the production variant of the motorcycle.
There aren’t many details disclosed by the brand on the engine specifications though one can easily recognise the use of air-cooler integrated below the belly pan. If the brand decides to bring out the production variant of the Hero Xtreme 1R concept sometime in the next year, one can expect it to be equipped with an all-new high-performance 200cc liquid-cooled engine.
