The Hero XPulse 200 and the XPulse 200T are set to launch on May 1. And after speaking with multiple dealers across the country, we have come to know that a select few dealerships have begun accepting bookings for the upcoming motorcycles. While most dealerships have a booking amount of Rs 5,000, some of them are even accepting bookings for just Rs 2,000.
The XPulse 200 is the long overdue update to the now-discontinued Hero Impulse. The Impulse’s underwhelming performance figures, along with an off-road market that wasn’t very active at the time, was to blame for its poor initial sales. That said, the bike eventually went on to becoming a favourite with the growing off-road community, well after it was discontinued. The XPulse will come as an affordable and lightweight addition to this ‘off-road’ segment, when compared to other existing models in the category, like the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
On the other hand, the XPulse 200T (T for touring) is a road-biased version of the XPulse 200, and the differences in kit addresses its intended application. There’s little that we don’t know about these motorcycles already, and you can head here take a look at all the details.
