Auto Expo 2018: Hero xPulse 200 Makes Debut in India

Hero XPulse 200 has been showcased in production ready version at Auto Expo 2018. A recent report also claims that it will launch in India around August 2018. Hero MotoCorp has stayed away from bigger displacement bikes from a long time and their comeback seems pretty sure from the new Xtreme 200R. Hero XPulse is not like an everyday bike and that seems even more clear from its high placed fender and huge front wheel with spoke rim. Hero first tried with Impulse but it was just 150cc and could not take performance to the level which riders expected. Features like digital console with inbuilt navigation makes it the best machine that one can expect around this segment.

Hero MotoCorp is using the same 200cc, single cylinder engine producing 18.34 BHP at 8500 rpm and 17.2 Nm at 6000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. They could tune the same for more torque at lower rpm and thus, a perfect off-road machine is imagined through this motorcycle. Hero XPulse carries fuel injection and helps it maintain the refined feel that seems lacking from other product in the company lineup. Hero xPulse 200 Himalayan is presently the most affordable motorcycle to go off-road while launch of XPulse could change the way people see mild off-roading in India. It will be much lighter and thus, expect impressive performance on odd surfaces. The concept was loaded with Metzeler off-road tyres and long travel forks for most effective riding experience. If Hero enters the 200cc segment, price war will start for sure between models like TVS Apache and Pulsar NS200. Availability of ABS will be limited to single channel unit.

Is the Hero XPulse 200T worth buying?
2023-09-19 07:23:10 AM

The Hero XPulse 200T was never really a hot seller. The company has taken its own sweet time to provide the bike with the BS6 updates, which have arrived at a pretty steep premium. If you are looking for a city bike in the 200cc space with no intention of heading to the nearby twisties or trails over the weekend, the XPulse 200T makes sense. The XPulse 200T has got the mandatory emission updates. Hence, you find a fuel-injection system fueling the 199.6cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. The oil cooler is a welcome addition but not as much to justify the extra price. 

What are the engine specifications of the Hero XPulse 200T 4V?
2023-09-19 07:21:31 AM

Powering the current Hero XPulse 200T is a 199.6cc single-cylinder fuel-injected air-cooled engine with an oil cooler, generating 19.1PS at 8500rpm and 17.35Nm at 6500rpm. But the 4-valve update should bump the power figures back up just like it did on the Xpulse 200 4V adventure bike. This motor works alongside a 5-speed transmission linked to a chain drive. The suspension includes a 37mm telescopic fork and a rear 7-step adjustable mono-shock. The XPulse 200T employs a 276mm front disc, a 220mm rear disc, and single-channel ABS. It comes with 17-inch alloy wheels (at both ends) wrapped in MRF street tyres. The XPulse 200T has a curb weight of 154kg and is equipped with a 13-liter fuel tank. At 800mm, the seat is 24mm lower than the XPulse 200’s unit.

What is the down payment for the Hero XPulse 200T 4V?
2023-09-19 07:21:05 AM

If you are planning to buy a new bike on finance, then generally, a 10 to 30 percent down payment is required on the on-road price of a bike. However, exact confirmation regarding EMI, down payment, interest, loan period, and its procedure will be discussed by the bank only, as it depends upon individual eligibility.

Can we use Hero Xpulse 200 4V as a dirt bike?
