The most affordable adventure motorcycle in India, Hero Xpulse 200 was also the very first motorcycle in the country to features Bluetooth-enabled turn-by-turn navigation. Not only is the bike a capable off-roader, but it is now also a tad more refined than the previous in its BS6 version which means highway speeds are now comfortable. Express Drives lived with an Xpulse 200 for some months to find if it is the all-rounder that it promises to be.
Hero Xpulse 200 is powered by a 200cc, oil-cooled, fuel-injected BS6 compliant engine that is good for developing 18 hp of power along with 16.45 Nm of torque.
The BS6 compliant Hero Xpulse 200 is currently priced in India at Rs 1.15 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The bike primarily goes up against the likes of Royal Enfield Himalayan in the segment that has recently received its 2021 update along with a price hike of Rs 10,000.
