Hero Motorcorp has launched the Hero Xtreme 125R alongside the Hero Mavrick 440 on Hero World Event 2024. There were leaks of the 125R on the Indian roads a couple of months ago. The motorbike has received a wide range of appreciation from many reviewers.

The motorbike is the 125cc version of the other popular motorbike from the Hero lineup, the Hero Xtreme 160R. The design is completely different but carries the design elements from the 160R. The 125R will compete directly with the TVS Raider 125 which currently stands as the best 125cc motorbike.

The Hero Xtreme 125R has an aggressive overall look. The motorbike has an all-LED front and back setup, adding to the modern setup. The front has H-shaped LED DRLs and a pointed aggressive headlight with projector headlamps for a high beam throw of light. The indicators are also LED which are situated just above the DRLs.

From the sides, the Hero Xtreme 125R has a naked sports bike-type look with an exposed frame in some parts. The tank is muscular and aggressive with different shades of colour. The exhaust is different from the 160R and has an aggressive sound.

The rear continues the LED setup with the H-shaped taillight and indicators. The split grab rails are also sporty. The seats are also split with the rider’s seat positioned a bit lower than the pillion. The foot pegs for the riders are a bit far which gives a sporty look while riding.

 The Xtreme 125R has a fully digital instrument cluster that is packed with information. It displays speedo, odo, trip meter, fuel gauge, side stand indicator, ABS indicator, time and gear position indicator.


The Hero Xtreme 125R utilises an air-cooled 4-stroke engine with a capacity of 124.7cc, capable of producing a maximum power output of 11.4BHP at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 10.5Nm at 6,000 rpm. It employs a fuel injection system and complies with BS6-2.0 emission standards. The acceleration from 0 to 60 kmph takes approximately 5.9 seconds. The transmission is a constant mesh 5-speed manual, coupled with a wet multi-plate clutch. The start system features both electric and kick options.

The performance of the Hero Xtreme 125R is great for daily commutes. It is a perfect option at the price range for those looking for a sporty option on a budget.


The Hero Xtreme 125R features a diamond frame with a tubular-fabricated swing arm. Its suspension comprises a conventional fork with a diameter of 37mm at the front and hydraulic shock absorbers (mono shock) at the rear.
