Updates range from a new 4-valve head and a taller seat to new colours

Hero MotoCorp launched the 2021 XPulse 200 in India yesterday with some significant updates to help its adventure touring traits. But how different is it from the outgoing BS6 model? Read on to find out.

 

Benefits From A New 4-Valve Head 

The biggest change is the new 4-valve overhead configuration, instead of the 2-valve setup of the outgoing model. As a result, the 2021 XPulse 200’s 199.6cc air- and oil-cooled single-cylinder engine now makes 19.1PS and 17.35Nm -- an improvement of 1.02PS and 0.9Nm over the previous model. The transmission and gear ratios have also been reworked for improved acceleration. The oil cooler has also been updated to keep the engine running at optimal temperatures.

 

Better Features

Apart from the engine update, the XPulse also gets better features in the form of an integrated start and kill switch. Not only is this more convenient but it also makes the switchgear look clutter-free. Up next, is the LED headlight. While it offered adequate throw and spread, Hero says it has been revised for better visibility.

 

Altered Seat Profile

The bike's seat profile has been modified to some extent. At 825mm, it’s now 2mm taller than before.

New Colours

To keep the bike looking fresh for 2021, Hero MotoCorp has also introduced new dual-tone paint schemes for the ADV. These are Trail Blue, Blitz Blue, and Red Raid. The rest of the bike remains unchanged. It continues to use the same hardware and full-digital instrument console with smartphone connectivity.

 

Pricer By Rs 5,000

The updated XPulse 200 is priced at Rs 1,28,150, commanding a premium of Rs 5,000 over the outgoing model. However, it still undercuts its closest rival, the Honda CB200X, by a massive Rs 16,350, making it one of the best value-for-money propositions in the market. Moreover, just like the outgoing bike, Hero will continue to offer the Rally Kit as an optional fitment.
