    @ Shyam | At 800mm the seat height is low enough for even a 5 foot 3 inch rider. The seat is narrow as well. Not sure if there is any way to reduce seat height apart from modifying the chassis. It is a good bike for daily use. Personal experience.

    At 5’6” it is borderline for me, my trouser inside leg (inseam) is 27” and I can just get both toes down at the same time, or of course one foot down flat (put your left foot down and hold the bike with the rear brake at junctions, swap to your right foot to engage gear/neutral). The problem comes with uneven ground, but practice helps, as do thicker soled boots e.g. motor cross or adventure ones and/or trimming the seat padding down. If all that is not enough then you can get longer “dog bones” to lower by 2cm from Hitchcocks in the UK, but they are not a cheap option and I don’t know what they would do to the handling.

    Even if there is away to reduce the seat height, it will be very difficult to ride because handle bars will be set at highest...

Can the XPulse be a worthy alternative to the Himalayan as an off-roader? Or should you still spend that much extra on the latter?

    I've owned this bike. It's a very nice and very comfortable bike. A very smooth off-roading ride. The average is 29kmpl.

    My place here it's bad roads and no roads everywhere. That is the reason I bought this bs4 Himalayan. So far there is no engine trouble, and the bs4 exhaust note is special while commuting. I bought this Himalayan as a reward for myself, and it is worth every penny. The torque is perfect for my native terrains, and I am still exploring. Ofcourse, It's a trip machine.
