Hero Xtreme

This is the bike that you can currently find being advertised on TV by Hero Motocorp. The Hero Xtreme is not a new bike. It was first launched as Hero Honda CBZ which was later revamped and relaunched as Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme. After the split up between Hero Motocorp and Honda India, the bike has now been launched as Hero Xtreme.
Hero Xtreme

Like the CBZ Xtreme, the new Hero Xtreme is a 149.2cc bike that is powered by a single cylinder 4 stroke engine that can deliver a max power of 14.4 PS and torque of 12.80 Nm. This places the Xtreme somewhere in the middle in terms of power delivered by 150cc bikes. Here is a table of all the bikes in the segment we have reviewed so far and the average max power claimed by these bikes.

Bike, Max Power
Suzuki GS150R, 14 PS
Apache RTR 160, 15.2 PS
Honda CBR 150R, 17.81 PS
Yamaha SZ-x, 12.1 PS
Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler, 14.2 PS
Yamaha FZ16, 14 PS
Hero Achiever, 13.5 PS
Yamaha YZF R15, 17 PS
Hero Hunk, 14.4 PS

The Hero Xtreme is priced at around Rs. 65,975 ex-showroom Delhi.

Officially Claimed Mileage

According to Gaadi.com, the official claim on the fuel consumption is around 65.1 kmpl. This is better than the claim from most motorbikes in this segment. Here is what the various 150cc bikes delivered under standard test conditions:

Bike, Official Claim
Suzuki GS150R, 55.7 kmpl
TVS Apache RTR 160, 54 kmpl
Yamaha SZ-x, 62.4 kmpl
Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler, 60 kmpl
Yamaha FZ16, 50.81 kmpl
Yamaha YZF R15, 46.93 kmpl
Hero Achiever, 68 kmpl
Hero Hunk, 65.1 kmpl

Customer Reviews

Let’s start with BikeDekho. The website doesn’t seem to have had a hands-on test drive. But according to them, you can expect a mileage of close to 50 kmpl on city roads. I’m not sure if this is an official number or anything, but even WheelMela appears to concur. Even they note that the standard city mileage with the Xtreme is likely to be 50 kmpl. Again, MaxAbout too notes the fuel economy in city to be 50 kmpl that can go up to 60 kmpl on highways.

To get a realistic figure, let’s jump into user discussions. First off, on Yahoo Answers, there are a lot of people discussing the mileage on their Xtreme and the consensus seems to be between 45-48 kmpl. However, this is if you keep your bike well serviced. If the bike has had its run, then the mileage could drop down to 40 kmpl at which point it is time for yet another servicing.

On the BikeAdvice reviews section, there are over 70 reviews for the bike since the time it was CBZ Xtreme. The numbers floated by the various customers reviewing their bike falls in the range 45-51 kmpl. There are of course a few people who claim top mileage of as high as 55-58 kmpl but they are few and far between.

Checking out MouthShut, there are close to 187 reviews for the Xtreme since the earlier Hero Honda days. The average customer has rated the bike 4/5 on bike consumption which is a pretty good thing for a 150cc bike because not too many people are happy with the fuel consumption on this range. The average fuel consumption reported by the reviewers here is around 40-50 kmpl on city and around 63 kmpl on highways although there is more than one occasion where people have complained of low mileage of not more than 35-40 kmpl. But looking at the average numbers, I would take a guess that these are not the norm and it could also be because of other issues with the specific bike in question.

Things are not very different on Olx where various customers have put their bikes up for sale. The average fuel efficiency one can observe on the Hero Xtreme is between 40-50 kmpl.

So there you go. It is very difficult to see a reliably good mileage delivered on a bike in the 150+cc range. But in this case, the Hero Xtreme delivers. There could be other things that you may want to look at before putting in the money. But as far as the fuel consumption goes, the Hero Xtreme should give you extreme satisfaction. Go for it.

Here’s the summary, as always:

Source, City Mileage (kmpl), Highways (kmpl)
Official, –, 65.1
BikeDekho, 50, —
WheelMela, 50, —
MaxAbout, 50, 60
Yahoo Answers, 45-48, —
BikeAdvice, 45-51, —
MouthShut, 40-50, 63
Olx, 40-50, —

    I bought this new model Hero Xtreme on Jan 2nd 2013. It was giving me 35 to 40 Kmpl (city) at first. After the 1st service it is giving 43 to 45 Kmpl(City). The bike has an engine vibration problem. It got reduced after 1st service. Good pickup, braking, style and control.

    • Srinivas K 11 September 2013 at 2:57 pm Permalink

      I have completed the 2nd service. There is no vibration and it’s very smooth. But the mileage is still 45 kmpl (city).

      • Suraj Pandey 3 June 2014 at 2:56 am Permalink

        Speed 35-60 ke beech me rakho.
        Brake kam use karo.
        Clutch Jyada Mat Use karo.
        Gear Top- Me Rakho.

        RpM 5 se upar mat jaane do.

    • Srinivas K 25 September 2013 at 6:45 pm Permalink

      Hero Xtreme gives 35 to 40 initially. It increases 5 km per liter in the city with each service.

    • Suraj Pandey 3 June 2014 at 2:56 am Permalink

  9. pintu 25 September 2013 at 10:44 am Permalink

    I bought this bike two months ago and it gave 35kmpl at first. But after running 300 kms, it gave 50kmpl in city. Now I am waiting for the 1st servicing. Maybe it would be 50+ kmpl

  10. Devanshu 3 October 2013 at 5:17 am Permalink

    I bought this bike in January 2013. The servicing has been done 3 times. But still the mileage I’m getting from Xtreme is 30-32. I am really disappointed with it. Thinking of selling it. :(

    I want to buy a new bike. Please can you suggest which one is good among the following:
    Honda: CB Unicorn, CB Trigger, CB Shine
    Hero: Xtreme, Ignitor

    • Srinivas K 12 October 2013 at 8:27 am Permalink

      Go for Unicorn. If you are more than 6 ft tall, then go for Xtreme

      • Abhi 28 June 2014 at 3:40 am Permalink

        Which bike would you suggest to buy in 150cc segment? It should have good mileage and should have good looks too! And also with low maintenance cost and good performance! Please suggest me.

    • sathish 1 November 2013 at 7:42 pm Permalink

      CB Trigger , good mileage (60-65),
      but no leg guard, no saree guard, so see once and thick.

  13. akaash 10 October 2013 at 4:09 pm Permalink

    I have booked this bike because its looks, performance, maintanance and the comfort level is much better as compare to other 150 cc bikes…

    • pintu 12 October 2013 at 10:44 am Permalink

      I have already bought a Hero Xtreme bike. As mentioned before, it has good performance, good looking style, comfortable sitting and its fuel efficiency in the city is 45-50kmpl. If you don’t want to purchase this bike, then you should move to Honda Shine. It is also a good bike with simple style in my opinion.

      • charles 6 June 2014 at 6:30 pm Permalink

  15. pintu 25 October 2013 at 6:07 am Permalink

    After completing the first servicing, I got very good mileage from Hero Xtreme, It gives around 50-53 kmpl in city and 61-63 kmpl on NH. It runs smoothly and fuel consumption is better than other 150cc bikes.

  16. ajeet 6 November 2013 at 6:13 pm Permalink

    I had purchased Xtreme 10 days back but its mileage is only 25 kmpl. Please tell me how much it will give after 1st service.

    • chirs 6 December 2013 at 7:44 am Permalink


      I purchased Hero Xtreme in August this year. Before the first servicing, it was giving me 45 to 50 kmpl mileage. The maximum speed I went was 45 to 50 kmph. It will be giving me 50 to 55 kmpl after second service.

    • Suraj Pandey 3 June 2014 at 2:58 am Permalink

      Bhai Dhang se chala gaadi..
      Jyada accelerate aur de acclerate mat kiya karo
      35-60 ke bbech me 5 RPM tak Chalao.

  17. dhanush 15 November 2013 at 4:51 pm Permalink

    I purchased this bike 3 months back. Initially for normal petrol, it was giving me 43 kmpl mileage. But after I started using Xtra Premium petrol, it gave me around 48 kmpl. After the first servicing, the mileage only increased by 2 kmpl (that is, 50 kmpl). Please advise how I should increase mileage.

    • Suraj Pandey 19 June 2014 at 2:31 pm Permalink

      You will get good mileage if you ride at 45 kmph on fifth gear as much as possible. Keep servicing frequently, check air pressure constantly and do not carry too much weight on the bike.

  18. charudatta 26 December 2013 at 4:14 pm Permalink

    I bought hero xtreme this month on 15/12/2013 its awesome bike, engine refinement is awesome with power. currently getting mileage of 53km/ltr.
    maintaining speed of 40-50 and rpm not able 4000.

    only problem faced was with the dealership. at time of delivery the chain cover rubber was missing and silencer bolts were loose.

    I am college going student. am planning to buy new Hero Xtreme 2013 very soon. Plz tell me its pros. & cons. and also which one to choose. Honda trigger, Unicor or Hero Xtreme.

  21. Try out to do your routines by itself or with your trainer to be sure that you
    are focused on each individual set of exercise routines. Try Zotac Nitro, which
    is a USB based device that enables you to adjust clock speeds and fan settings to improve
    your GPU’s performance, without having to quit the game
    you are playing. This is because, in race cars when the speed of the car increases then son that
    the car moves faster getting accident due to overweight.

    The best premium bike in 150 cc segment – yeah a Premium one. (Maximum Power, Torque And Speed (Up to 126 Km/hr. The Class)

    Dear Friends, the bikes like Pulsar, Apache, Trigger, FZS, FZR lose out in front of Hero Xtreme. Just take a review from any of the bike users after they have driven 2-3 years. The pickup and looks are not the only required things for users. Mileage, durability, reliability, comfort, guarantee, looks, brand and number of service centers too matter while choosing a bike.

    Hero’s mileage is better than most of the others in 150cc (up to 55+ on highways, I can guarantee this)

    And the reliability, comfort, etc. have been proven in Hero bikes. Hero provides 5 years warranty on all their bikes; so no tension at all.

    The engine is from Honda, and Hero can product Honda engines till 31st March 2017 if they want to (You can check Wikipedia for this).

    The guarantee is for
    2.)Body Color,
    3.)Petrol Tank,
    5.)Alloy Wheels,
    7.)Tail Light,
    8.)Mobile Charger Socket,
    9.)Atft Kit,
    (Battery And Tyre is guaranteed by the company of the product)

    1.)The bike should be serviced regularly at Hero service centers (free+paid)
    2.)The physical damage from outside world is not covered under warranty.

    Choose wisely a durable and trusted product.

    For any query, please comment
