Xtreme Sports is the upgraded version of Hero Xtreme, which was launched back in 2008. The new Xtreme Sports and the Xtreme bears the DNA of the all time favorite, the Hero Honda CBZ. Like the first flagship model (CBZ), this one also targets young customers, looking for a stylish motorcycle for day to day commuting. This motorcycle was launched in the year 2014, just before the Indian Auto Expo 2014.

It can delivers 15.2 bhp of maximum power @ 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 12.8 Nm @ 6500 rpm. Then this engine is mated to a 5-speed constant mesh manual gearbox, which is similar to the 150cc Hero bikes.
