The Hero Xtreme 160R is finally here and boy are we excited. Hero is finally shifting its focus from boring commuters to performance-centric motorcycles. And this is just the start. The Xtreme 160R not only looks good but also comes packed with features, some of them segment firsts. At Rs 1,03,500 (rear disc), it also manages to undercut most of its 150-160cc rivals. But some of you may not be convinced with the idea of putting down a token amount on the Xtreme 160R. For that reason, we’ve listed down a couple of alternatives that you could buy for around the same price.
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V - Rs 1,06,000
The Apache RTR 160 4V has been the benchmark in the entry-level performance segment even since its launch in November 2019. It looks cool, comes with a host of features and handles well. The RTR 160 4V was also the most powerful bike in its class until the BS6 NS160 came along. All in all, it is a brilliant package despite the 2,500 premium over the Hero.
Bajaj Avenger Street 160 - Rs 94,893
The laidback Avenger Street 160 could be a decent alternative to the Xtreme 160R. It’s just as powerful as the Xtreme 160R but in a more comfortable package. It does everything you'd expect it to do. The Avenger has a smooth engine, a comfortable ride quality, reassuring brakes and even Harley-like looks. It is also a lot easier on the pocket than the Hero.
Bajaj Pulsar 180F - Rs 1,10,330
A little more grunt and some wind protection never hurt anyone. That’s what you get with the Pulsar 180F. It’s essentially a toned down 220F with the same iconic design language that still stands strong despite the growing competition. The bike makes sense if you fancy the 220F’s looks but have a tight budget.
Revolt RV400 - Rs 1,03,999
You could also consider going green for the same price as the Xtreme 160R. The RV400 took the electric two-wheeler segment by storm with its clever pricing strategy. It’s not only surprisingly cheap but also easy on the pocket in the long run thanks to the service pack which is included in the price of the bike. Yes it isn’t comparable to the ICE-powered Xtreme 160R in terms of performance, but it makes up for the lack of grunt by packing in some cool features. More importantly, electric two-wheelers are the future of transportation.
Aprilia SR 160 - 1,04,920
If practicality and some killer looks is what you seek, you may want to have a look at the Aprilia SR 160. It’s powerful and the recent bump in displacement thanks to BS6 emission norms has given it a minor boost in performance too. Aside from this though, the scooter remains unchanged. Having said that, you still get a fantastic looking Italian scooter that manages to grab eyeballs wherever you go.
