After the successful launch of Hero Xpulse 4V in India, the company is all set to launch another motorcycle soon.

Hero Motocrop teased this upcoming bike in its official social media handles giving us a quick glimpse of none other than Xtreme 160R. The company is all set to launch the Stealth Edition soon in India.
The tagline ” Go Boom in stealth mode, coming soon” can be seen on their social media handles.
