    Q. What is the different between Hero Moto Corp XPulse 200 BS4 and BS6
    • There are few differences which all together make the motorcycle feel slightly different while riding. Addition of cat-conThe exhaust pipe placement has been changed to accommodate the cat-con, addition of cat con also results in a slight power drop, this has drastically changed the way the engine performs. Reduced vibes, linear power delivery and better mileage I suppose.Addition of oil cooler.For now this is all that has changed in the bs6 xpulse. If you have ridden the bs4 motorcycle you’ll definitely feel the difference in the engine performance.
    • The major change your n BS6 variant is now this bike comes with oil cooled engine at place of air cool engine is BS4. I have BS4 variant and I feel the hot engine without oil cool engine. Can Hero add oil cooler to my BS4 xpulse 200.
    • Difference between BS-IV and BS-VI fuel and vehicles primarily is the significant lower content of sulphur. The sulphur content on both petrol and diesel will come down to 10ppm in BS-VI fuel as compared to 50 ppm in BS-IV fuel

    Q. I am planning to buy the XPulse 200. I am confused between carburetor and FI- which one would be easier to maintain in the long run? Also, I have read reports of the rust issue of the wheel and rim, has this been resolved?
    • Xpulse carb is more better than fi.but you want more refinement and mileage go for xpulse fi.both segment make for long riding distance. after a long time rust issues but it's can be resolved.
    • For better mileage go for Fi, for less maintenance go for carb edition, rusting issue is not seen on every bike, even though if you face the issue the hero moto corp is replacing the rusted parts with new one......
    • Is there any sound comming from engine side in BS6 model
    Q. Which is better when you compare cruise 220 vs thunder bird 350?
    • I am an owner of avenger cruise 220 too and I also had some experience with RE. To be frank comparing avenger and RE doesn't make any sense. People with very little to absolutely no knowledge say that you should have bought RE. Don't listen to them, but think and be clear what really you want… Let me break down some points for you1. RE are OLD SCHOOL thumper. Since in every machine the product of SPEED and TORQUE remains constant. RE have a Huge amount of torque and thus they are not fast even with 350cc. On the other hand Avenger have same pulser 220 engine and yes they calibrated that to some extent to produce a decent amount of torque for avenger.We all know RE are slow. They have huge torque and that's why it feels more powerful but that's not true.. You know while riding on road some times people start racing just to show…. whatever… Well I had several these experiences when a RE rider tried to overtake me..lol.. And each n everytime, all I have to do is pull the throttle down just a lil and boom….. They NEVER had been able to overtake me…avenger may not be as fast as a pulser or Duke or any other sports bike but don't forget it's Soul is from one of the fastest bike in India(pulser 220)…its soul is sports and body a cruiser…so it's a quiet an interesting bike.2. Harley Davidson ,indian,etc are different class of bike and the true cruisers having all the physical features of what a cruiser is including high low end torque. On the other hand RE are NOT AT All a cruiser(I am talking about classic 350 and bullet standard,i don't even consider Thunderbird to be a bike… )Thunderbird is an experiment by RE, in my point of view , coz Thunderbird has blunders. Yes, Thunderbird looks AWESOME..I love that bike just for the look. Infact her looks counterbalance every other major or minor drawbacks of her.3. Our mind follow the facts but heart don't…my heart have a secret love for RE. Even though the vibrations are a hassle and it's a fact that they don't feels good to ride even at speed like 55 kmph , people still love it.So the overall conclusion it that you wanted a cruiser type bike and you got 40% genetic cruiser. That's all..be happy with that… Avenger is only cruiser available in such a low price… For a real cruiser , one must go to Harley , Indian, Intruder Suzuki,.4. So do not worry when people say that you sound have bought RE. Think that they are ignorant people who just blindly preach the name of RE without knowing the fact that Avenger is a far better cruiser than RE Thunderbird and much faster than any RE bikes(excluding 500cc).On the other hand RE classic and bullet standard are beautiful classic bikes which are legendary…and that doesn't make avenger inferior.
    • Even though the CC is more on Thunderbird, Cruise 220 wins the Drag. Both the bikes are cruisers and choose the one you like. I personally prefer the Cruise because i save almost 80K and both serves the purpose of being Cruise bikes. Maintenance is cheaper on the Cruise. Choosing one is upto you if you are a fanboy of one of these brands.
    • Well,the avenger churns out 19.5 hp so does the REthunerbird, but the RE has more torque than avenger. average of avenger is 40 and thunderbird below 30. braking of new RE is dual disc while in avenger the back is drum,so RE has an advantage there. the RE has a lot of vibrations and the avenger has negligible, price difference is about 60,000 between the two, and bajaj servicing is very cheap and the spare parts are also very cheap, so the BAJAJ AVENGER is a much more practical in my opinion,,. by the way i have ridden both these bikes a lot, and avenger best in terms of handling too.
