Quite agile and throttle-happy

Priyanka Rathore | One year ago
helpful 0

As a proud owner of the BS6 2020 Xpulse 200, I can confidently say that it has been a great experience so far. The good part has only gotten better with time and I have no complaints apart from a faulty fuel pump issue which got resolved under the warranty. The only downside I faced is that, being a rider on the heavier side (weighing 100+kg), it is difficult to carry a pillion. Riding into a pothole or a speed breaker causes the lower portion of the bike to grind the asphalt or the paved surface of the trail. But apart from that, for trail riding and touring solo, the Xpulse 200 is quite agile and throttle-happy. I love this bike and I am planning to upgrade to the Xpulse 300/400 if the company gives the green light for commercial production. Cheers!

Great value for money

Gazal Singla | One year ago

I’m really happy with my XPulse 200. I’ve used it on highways, cities, and off-roads, and it’s been great in all scenarios. The mileage is great, the comfort is great, and it’s definitely a mighty bike. I’ve recommended it to many of my friends, and around 7 or 8 of them have ended up buying the bike too.

The XPulse is the best vehicle for on-roading and off-roading. Its road grip is awesome and it’s budget-friendly. The only issue I’ve had so far is that it needs some fine tuning with the chain settings and clutch settings. But overall, it’s a great value for money.

Great performance on off-road trails

Pranshu Mishra | One year ago
helpful 0

Xpulse 200 is a great ADV bike and offers great performance on off-road trails. The power output is strong enough for highway use and is quite capable. The bike is quite comfortable and the ground clearance is quite good. The mileage is good at 40 km/l and the maintenance costs can be a bit high but overall it's a great bike. The only issue that I have encountered is the chain sprocket problem, rear suspension leaking and engine overheating issues. But overall, the Xpulse 200 is a great bike and I would highly recommend it.

Really satisfied with the overall performance

Charan Singh | One year ago

I have been using the Hero XPulse 200 4v for more than 8 months now, and have been really satisfied with the overall performance. Initially I did face some engine heat issues, but after the third service, the problem was taken care of. I also decided to modify my seat, and I must say, it has made my riding experience much more comfortable.

In terms of mileage, the Hero XPulse 200 4v is one of the best in its price range. It has been consistently delivering a good mileage on a regular basis, which has been a major plus point for me.

Great average in the 200cc

Krishna Borgohain | One year ago

The Hero XPulse 200 has great average in the 200cc segment and its headlight power has been increased. However, it still falls short of being a completely off-road capable machine. The built quality of the bike is good and the mileage is also commendable. All in all, the Hero XPulse 200 is a great bike for long rides and adventures, especially for those on a budget.

The headlight issue has been an issue for a while and I'm disappointed that the company hasn't taken steps to improve the visibility. The engine could also have been refined more to make it more reliable. Other than these issues, I have no other complaints and I'm very happy with my purchase.

Amar Jain

The Main Frame was not designed to house the Exhaust Pipe and the fact that it had to be cut to fit it into the Cylinder is a major red flag. This is a clear indication of poor design and it makes me question the overall quality of the product. This is a definite deal breaker for me.

Rana Arun Singh

I have been using the Xpulse 200 for the past two months and I am amazed by how great its suspension is for broken roads and unpaved paths. It navigates these roads with ease and does not cause any discomfort to the rider. The average mileage it gives is around 35 kmpl and it is suitable for both city and highway rides. It is also able to handle floods and muddy roads with ease. The only downside is that it lacks power on the highway and can only do 200 km in 4 hours when on an average state highway with stops in between.

Lokesh Goyal

I am really happy with the performance of my bike and the initial punch is great. The only thing that I find a bit off is the cruising speed of 100+ kmph. I know it's not a cruiser bike, but it would be great to be able to cruise at 90 kmph on the highway with the 5th gear at 4500 rpm. That's the sweet spot for me.

Hero is known for its powerful and reliable bikes. With the advent of adventure biking, the company should now look towards introducing motorcycles with 400-500 cc engines in order to cater to the needs of adventure-seekers. With its impeccable reputation, Hero has the potential to make a big impact in the adventure biking segment. The company should take this opportunity to increase its market share and create a legacy that will be remembered for generations. As a loyal Hero owner, I urge the engineers of the company to take this suggestion seriously.

Hero has always been a leader in the two wheeler market, but the recent years have been especially difficult for them. However, they’re back with a vengeance with the 200cc bikes; the Xtreme and the XPulse. It would be great to see them continue the momentum and launch 300cc and 400cc bikes soon. This could be the start of a new era for the company, and an exciting one for the two wheeler industry.
