Here you get BS-6 complaint 160CC 2 valve engine which generates the power of 15 PS. When we talk about Torque so here you get 14Nm of torque which is similar as other competitors. The best thing is the speed, you get 60 Kmph in 4.7 sec. In terms of low end, you can compare it with any 160cc bike. 160R comes with the 2 valve air cooled engine where competitors are offering 4 valve oil cooled engine. As you get 2 valve engine in his bike so the power and torque figures are decent. The engine of this bike really perform very well and you can’t find any issue there. In that BS-6 engine you can feel the smoothness and refinement levels in this bike.
Xtreme 160R comes with some attractive features like hazard light switch, which makes it different as compare to its competitors. Here you also get fully digital meter console which is also new for Xtreme series. In the digital meter gear position indicator is missing there. Here I have seen LED inside indicators which is also not common in this segment. Side stand engine cut-off also on offer which is also not common but very useful feature.
Here you get LED headlamp in this bike, which is now common in this segment. The element design of this headlamp is different. Sometimes the headlamp reminds you Hornet, what’s your opinion please let me know in the comment box below.
When we talk about safety here you get single channel ABS as standard. Xtreme 160R comes with 276MM petal disc brake at the font and 220MM petal disc brake at the back. It offers 100/80 section 17 inches tyre at the front and 130/70 section 17 inches tyre at the back.
Here you get 37MM chunky forks in front and it offers mono shock absorbers as a rear suspension. I rode this bike and felt, it offers quite impressive suspension and you can’t feel any jerk in this scooter.
