Coronavirus: Hero develops Xtreme 200R with sidecar bed

Hero MotoCorp has built a unique first-responder vehicle for Covid-19 relief. It's an Xtreme 200R with a sidecar bed. Two such vehicles have been handed over to Community Health Centres in Neemrana and Mundawar in Rajasthan.

The sidecar bed has been custom-built as an accessory for the Xtreme 200R. It is equipped with a full-stretcher with a foldable hood mounted on the side, essential medical equipment such as a detachable first-aid kit, oxygen cylinder, fire extinguisher and other safety features such as LED flasher lights, foldable beacon light, emergency wireless public announcement system and siren.

The vehicle has been designed and developed by engineers at Hero’s Centre of Innovation and Technology (CIT) in Jaipur and the New Model Centre (NMC), Gurgaon.

Hero MotoCorp is building more of these first-responder vehicles which it plans to hand over to health authorities in other parts of the country.
