Auto Expo 2018 is heading towards reality now and world’s largest two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp looks all set for the event. The company will launch XPulse adventure bike at the biennial event along with multiple concepts. There will be multiple new concepts bikes and scooters on display. This time around, one key focus for Hero MotoCorp will be the electric two-wheeler territory and hence, one can expect some eco-friendly vehicles parked at the company’s booth during Auto Expo 2018. Also, the company is stepping up its game for the premium motorcycle segment and hence, a Hero concept or two from the said space may also make their way to the Expo. The new Hero XPulse gets its power from the same 199cc engine that runs the Xtreme 200R. Having said that, expect the engine to churn out respective power and torque figures of close to 18 hp and 17 Nm. Gearbox will be five-speed unit.

The new Hero XPulse 200 will come with multiple adventure inspired bits such as tall windscreen, wired wheels, long travel suspension and a lot more.  The new Hero XPulse 200 will come with disc brakes at both ends and a single channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) is likely to be offered at least as an option. Complete feature list to be revealed tomorrow at Auto Expo 2018.

Besides the new Hero XPulse, the manufacturer will also be displaying numerous other models that may or may not make it to the production lines in the years to come. There have been long-running rumours that Hero MotoCorp will launch a 125cc scooter at the biennial event that may borrow design cues from the Dare 125. The rivalry in the 125cc scooter segment is spicing up day by day and hence, Hero MotoCorp should come up with a model exciting enough to catch the interest of the buyer. More details to be revealed during Auto Expo 2018.
