Engineers have also worked on improving the sound of the bike. The intake noise was reduced by putting a resonator in the intake channel. The exhaust note has also been tuned to sound in line with the performance characteristic of the bike.

The Hero Xtreme 200R is built with a diamond type frame and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels which are wrapped with MRF made 100-section and 130-section radial tires at front and rear respectively.
