Hero XPulse 200 Latest Updates
Hero unveiled a rally kit for the XPulse 200 at the 2019 EICMA motorcycle show. Developed in conjunction with Hero MotoSports Rally Team, the rally kit includes a fully adjustable suspension at the front and rear, handlebar risers, a custom rally seat, rally-spec tyres and a new 12/40T sprocket for shorter gearing. Hero has also increased the ground clearance to 275mm, which is 55mm more than the road-spec variant. Moreover, there’s an Akrapovic exhaust on offer as well! Hero hasn’t revealed the price of the kit yet, but it is expected to be priced around Rs 50,000 (without the Akrapovic exhaust). Expect Hero to roll out the new kit by early 2020, but it is strictly for motorsport use only.

On the feature front, the bike gets LED lights at both ends, a Bluetooth-enabled full-digital instrument cluster and a USB charging port. Powering the Hero Xpulse is a 200cc, fuel-injected, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that makes 18.4PS at 8,000rpm and a peak torque of 17.1Nm at 6,500rpm. It comes mated to a 5-speed transmission and employs 37mm telescopic forks and an adjustable rear monoshock. The bike rides on 21-inch and 18-inch spoked wheels at the front and rear respectively. It comes with discs at the front and rear paired with single-channel ABS (Anti-lock Braking System). The bike is priced at Rs 97,000 and the Fi variant is priced at Rs 1.06 lakh (ex-showroom).

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying XPulse 200
- Well, you will not get all in a single bike as per your requirements. All these bikes are good enough for daily commutes and they have decent fuel efficiency too. Hero XPulse 200 could be a good option for touring but it has not been launched yet in BS6 era. No bike is there in its price range for adventure fun. Honda CB Hornet 160R to has not been launched yet in BS6 era.If we talk about Xtreme 160R, it is the most exciting motorcycle to come out of the stables of Hero MotoCorp in the recent past. It has the styling, performance, and dynamics to take on the competition. Also, it undercuts its rivals in terms of pricing. It is the best-looking Hero motorcycle out there. Excellent handling dynamics. One of the lightest bikes in the segment.The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has been the benchmark when it comes to 160cc motorcycles. With the BS6-compliant iteration, TVS has made sure it is still as sprightly as ever despite the slight drop in power and torque figures. The overall package and reasonable pricing make it a truly value for money motorcycle in its segment. On the other hand, in the 150cc streetfighter segment, the Gixxer continues to provide one of the best all-round packages in this class, coming very close to the Apache RTR 160 4V. However, in BS6 form it has become quite a lot more expensive and has lost engine output too, robbing it of some value for money.In nearly every aspect, except maybe ergonomics and braking, the Yamaha FZS-FI v3.0 fails to impress. While its motor offers better fuel efficiency compared to the previous-gen model, it lacks grunt. If you have around Rs 1 lakh to invest, you're better off with say a TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 or the Suzuki Gixxer.You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
- You may go for Dominar 250. It is fun to ride and comfortable too. It shares a lot with Dominar 400 and it offers great value. If we talk about Hero XPulse 200, it has not been launched yet.
