The Xpulse 200 is a great off-roader, however, it feels a bit underwhelming while riding on open highways. That’s because it isn’t very powerful but now soon things will change for good. Hero MotoCorp has officially teased the new Xpulse 200 4V on its social media handles and this more powerful Xpulse 200 will be launched in India soon.
