Hero MotoCorp launches premium bike

Hero MotoCorp on Wednesday launched its new Xtreme 160R 4V premium motorcycle with prices starting at Rs 1.27 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The new Xtreme 160R 4V is powered by a 163cc BS-VI phase II and E20 compliant engine that generates a maximum power output of 16.9 Ps.

It comes in three variants of Standard, Connected 2.0, and Pro priced at Rs 127,300, Rs 132,800 and Rs 136,500, respectively (all prices ex-showroom Delhi).

The auto company is going to introduce a series of class-defining products in the premium motorcycle space and the launch of Xtreme 160R 4V is the first in a series of launches lined up through the year.

The bike is equipped with tech-enabled features such as remote immobilisation, geo fence, and in-app navigation services, among others through the Hero Connect 2.0.

Speaking of Hero MotoCorp, the company's shares have performed well on the bourses.

As inflation is easing, the burden on consumers is coming down, and with offices opening up, the two-wheeler demand is expected to go up.

This can help Hero MotoCorp increase its revenue in the medium term. Hence, Hero MotoCorp's management is expecting double-digit growth in revenue and a rise in margins in the financial year 2024.

No wonder Hero MotoCorp is one of the stocks to watch out when inflation cools down.
