Hero MotoCorp has axed the Xpulse 200 2V from its line-up in India, with the model being taken off the manufacturer’s website. The website only lists the 200 4V and 200T as part of the Xpulse line-up.
While Hero hasn’t specified a reason for its discontinuation, we believe it’s been taken off the shelves to streamline the Xpulse line-up and make room for the upcoming 300cc ADV that's been spotted testing recently. The Xpulse 200 4V is priced at Rs 1,37,496, while the entry-level Xpulse 200T costs Rs 1,24,396. There were teasers regarding a new Xpulse 200T a few months ago, rumoured to sport the new 4-valve engine, but there has been no update on that front since then.
The two-valve Xpulse 200 was powered by a 199.6cc single cylinder engine that put out 17.8hp at 8,500rpm and 16.45Nm at 6,500rpm. These figures were down by 1.3hp and 0.9Nm in comparison to the four-valve version.
We’ve reached out to Hero regarding the discontinuation of the Xpulse 200 2V and are awaiting their response.
