As informed earlier, Hero MotoCorp will be launching its XPulse series in India tomorrow. The launch of the XPulse series will introduce 2 new bikes in the Indian market, the XPulse 200 and the XPulse 200T. While the XPulse 200 is a serious adventure tourer, the Xpulse 200T is a simple touring motorcycle. Select Hero Dealerships have already started taking advance bookings for a token amount of Rs 2000 for these bikes. While the launch of the third bike is not confirmed yet, it is likely to be a fully-faired version of the Xtreme 200R.
After contacting a few dealers we got to know that the bookings have started, and the booking amount has been set to Rs 2000. As the bike will be launched in India tomorrow, it will reach the showrooms in the next few days, while the deliveries are expected to commence in the next couple of weeks. The XPulse 200 and XPulse 200T, are the most anticipated motorcycles of 2019, as these bikes will set a new benchmark in terms of affordability and quality. With all-terrain tyres and a higher riding stance, the XPulse 200 is the more serious off-roader of the two bikes. However, the XPulse 200T is not very different in the overall design layout, as it draws inspiration from the XPulse 200 and is styled pretty similarly to the off-road version.
The XPulse 200T and the XPulse 200 and will be sharing the same engine. However, the engine tuning for the off-road version might be a bit different to provide better torque and performance on all types of terrain.
