Hero Xtreme 160R
To move the premium commuter segment hero will launch this bike soon. They had already showcased the bike at a previous event. The bike does break the conventional styling that is offered by Hero.

After the Honda Grazia BS6, the company has released a trailer for the Honda Livo. There are a few noticeable changes on the bike which sets it apart from other commuter segment bikes. Honda has already launched a few commuter bikes of 110 and 125cc. Launch the BS6 Honda Livo will complete its lineup with 2 bikes in every displacement category.
a 110cc engine from the CD 110 Dream with a 4-speed gearbox will be a good idea but if Honda gives it a 5-speed gearbox then it could compete with the Platina H-Gear. The power figures are humble at 8.67 bhp and the torque is complimentary at 9.3 Nm. Read More
