Hero XPulse 420 India Launch Delayed - Here Are The Details

The Hero XPulse 420, an adventure motorcycle that has been eagerly anticipated by many, has been delayed. The bike was originally scheduled to be released in 2024, but it has now been pushed back to early 2025.

According to a dealer source who attended Hero MotoCorp's national dealer conference, the delay is due to the company's desire to ensure that the XPulse 420 meets the highest standards before it is released. The R&D team is still working on resolving some of the issues that have been identified.

Another reason for the delay could be the global chip shortage and rising input costs. Hero MotoCorp has said that it is working hard to resolve these issues and bring the XPulse 420 to market as soon as possible.

Hero XPulse 400 Concept by Abin Designs

The XPulse 420 prototype was displayed a few years ago, but there hasn't been any more information on the bike until recently. The contemporary XPulse 200 is renowned for its off-road prowess but isn't powerful enough to cruise around the highway in comfort. This problem is anticipated to be solved with the XPulse 420's larger engine.

Both XPulse 200 owners searching for an upgrade and potential-new consumers curious about Hero MotoCorp's adventure motorcycles are the target markets for the XPulse 420. The BMW G310GS, KTM 390 Adventure, and Royal Enfield Himalayan 411 are now dominating the 300-400cc adventure motorcycle market. When it is produced, the XPulse 420 will have a lot of competition, but it could end up being a popular design.

We expect the XPulse 420 to debut at the 2024 EICMA motorcycle show and be released in India in early 2025. The price is expected to be in the range of Rs 2.50-2.75 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Key Features of the Hero XPulse 420

  • Larger engine with more power and torque
  • Longer-travel suspension for better off-road performance
  • Wider tires for improved grip
  • More aggressive styling
  • High-tech electronics
  • Higher level of equipment

Most Popular Answers for Hero XPulse
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.
