Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I'm a beginner, Which bike is the best for me XPulse 200, Dominar 250, Can you help?
  • Being a beginner doesnt matter much if you ask me. But I will say the XPulse200 will be easier to handle and throw around. But, the ride and ergonomics of both these vehicles are entirely different and I suggest you test ride them both and make your decision.
  • Hi im 39 about 5 11 tall and im a beginner which bike is better for me in 150cc range
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
