The Karizma’s engine will soon find its way to 2 new Hero bikes

Hero gave us its first liquid-cooled bike, the Karizma XMR, this August. And now, the engine will make its way onto two brand-new motorcycles. A recent spy shot that surfaced online recently has shown two Hero bikes, the Xtreme 210 and the XPulse 210, being tested.  

The engine on both bikes looks very similar to the Karizma’s, in both shape and colour. Plus, a closeup shot of the XPulse 210 also shows that the bike gets a radiator, confirming the fact that the engine really is the 210cc liquid-cooled one. 

While the video isn’t a long one, what we can see is that the XPulse 210 gets all-LED lighting, for the bulb-type indicators have been replaced by sleek LED ones. Other bits like the spoke wheels, narrow profile and overall tall stance make it look quite similar to the current XPulse 200 4V. Interestingly, it misses out on an inverted fork, something we’ve seen on the smaller Xtreme 160R 4V

Talking about the Xtreme 210, its headlight might have been camouflaged but it does look quite aggressive. And that very aggression is exaggerated by the sharp tank extensions. The fuel tank too, is heavily contoured and looks quite muscular. 

Now while we’re happy that the Xtreme and XPulse monikers are benefitting from liquid-cooled engines, there’s something that Hero will have to address. During our first ride review, we found the Karizma’s motor to be a rather peaky one. While it’s not bad on a streetfighter like the Xtreme, we’re not sure how it’d pan out on an ADV. It might help its touring abilities (which has been the XPulse’s Achilles Heel) but for off-road purposes, Hero will have to tweak the gearing to give it a better bottom-end grunt, something that's crucial for adventure bikes.  

We expect both bikes to be here towards the end of 2024, maybe in the festive season, around October. Hero could then price the Xtreme 210 at Rs 1.60 lakh, while the XPulse 210 could be priced at Rs 1.90 lakh, ex-showroom. For perspective, the Xtreme 160R 4V's top trim costs Rs 1,36,500, while the XPulse 200 4V Pro costs Rs 1,52,151 (ex-showroom Delhi).
