Hero MotoCorp is finally going to launch the XPulse 200 and XPulse 200T in India today. The XPulse 200 was showcased for the first time at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy followed by India debut at the Auto Expo 2018. The Hero XPulse 200 can be seen as a successor to the Impulse that was retired from the Indian two-wheeler market a few years back. While the Hero XPulse 200 is an adventure motorcycle, the XPulse 200T is a tourer based on the former. Once launched, the Hero XPulse 200 will be India's most affordable ADV and the title is currently owned by the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Selected dealerships across India have started accepting bookings for the two motorcycles at a minimum token amount of Rs 5,000.

The Hero XPulse 200 and XPulse 200T get power from the same engine that powers the Xtreme 200R. Speaking of the visuals, the Hero XPulse 200 has a purposeful design and gets a beak up front along with spoke wheels at both ends. Both the Hero XPulse 200 and XPulse 200T will get an ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) as standard keeping in mind the mandatory safety norms. Now, here is a surprise! Hero MotoCorp will also be launching a third motorcycle tomorrow that is expected to be a fully faired model. A video was leaked a few days back showing a fully faired Hero motorcycle and the upcoming bike might be the same that appeared in the video previously.
