Hero Xpulse 200 FI Long Term Report: June 2020

By Vineet | on June 21, 2020

The COVID-19 crisis has seriously impacted our lives. Staying indoors and social distancing have become the new normal. Although the lockdown has been extended nationwide, the latest guidelines by the government came with a few relaxations, including public movement. But public transport is still restricted, and understandably so. 

Following the new guidelines, I resumed going to office, but since there's no public transport at the moment, I needed a personal vehicle, and, thankfully, our long-term Xpulse was available. 

Now, I'm a fan of sports bikes, and adventure motorcycles never appealed to me as much. But my views towards ADVs changed drastically after riding the Xpulse. I've really come to like this machine. Besides, there are benefits of owning a dual-purpose motorcycle. Because of the lockdown, our roads are mostly empty, allowing me a perfect opportunity to test the performance of the Xpulse. It's so comfortable to ride –  the wide handlebar keeps your posture straight, which means no back pain during long rides. It has now become my everyday riding companion. Although I do feel that a softer seat cushion could have been a better fit. Overall, I must say that I really like this mini off-roader and the adventures it allows me to have.
