Hero MotoCorp hosted its off-road riding event, XTracks – Live the Thrill, in Kolkata. Over 250 riders and enthusiasts participated in the activity. The event provides riders with an opportunity to experience the XPulse 20 on a specially-curated off-road zone. In addition to showcasing the capabilities of the XPulse 200 on multiple terrains, the sessions also aim to impart critical skills to the enthusiasts, thereby enhancing their riding abilities.
At the XTracks Experience, participants were first provided with product and safety briefings that help them understand the capabilities of the bike and inculcate safe riding habits. Following the briefings, riders are led on a specially curated on-and-off-road track by expert riders from Hero MotoCorp. The tracks included obstacles that help the riders test the characteristic features of the XPulse 200. Kolkata is the fifth location to host the multi-city event after Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and Delhi/NCR. The XTracks experience will now move to Kochi and Pune in the coming weeks.
