Hero is launching a new off-road – on-road bike, Hero Xpulse 200. The company showcased the adventure bike in Auto Expo 2018 and recent reports have surfaced regarding the launch details, expected price, and features.
Hero‘s newest hot bike, Xpulse 200 is all set to hit the Indian roads this year. Xpulse will be replacing Impulse to become the country’s least expensive adventure bike. Having the proper off-road dirt bike looks, the bike can easily glide into on-road travelling too. Despite, having similar looks like Impulse, Xpulse offers better seating and a more powerful engine.
The bike is reported to launch in second half 2018. The pricing details have not been mentioned yet, but the details will come with the launch date itself. The deliveries are expected to roll out in a few time after the launch.
Hero Motocorp said that it will be producing bikes under the Rs 1 Lakh range, as 70% of the Indians prefer that budget. Accordingly, Xpulse 200 will be priced between Rs 1 Lakh – Rs 1.10 Lakh, making it the cheapest adventure bike. Currently, the cheapest adventure bike is Royal Enfield Himalayan starting from Rs 1.68 Lakh (ex-showroom). Currently in the market, Himalayan is the main competitor, as very less off-road bikes are available in India.
Copying the looks from Hero Impulse, Xpulse 200 has upgraded itself. Xpulse sports a tall stance with minimalistic body panels. The body is sleek and sturdy. In the front, it gets a round shaped LED headlamp and a high shaped beak like mudguard. The fuel tank gets the ‘Xpulse 200’ decals. The rear fender gets a good height with an LED tail light and a silver coloured pillion handle. The upswept exhaust and muffler are put to evade water problems. Also, the space between the fenders and the tires are good to enable travelling in marshy lands.
