Hero Xpulse 200 FI Long Term Report: March 2020

By Divyank Kushagra Bansal | on March 21, 2020

So far, my time with the Xpulse 200 has been quite rewarding. Now, since I’ve have become familiar with the basics, like the bike’s engine response, braking, & acceleration, my attention has shifted to figuring out finer details – which includes a few positives and a negative, thus far. Let me start with the good stuff. It goes without saying that the Xpulse 200 offers unparalleled road presence by the virtue of its off-road build. It stands out for all the right reasons. I’ve had numerous passers-by and fellow riders turn their heads at the sight of me crossing them on the Xpulse. I’ve also been told the smooth ‘thrum’ of the exhaust adds further to its stand-out quotient. As impressive as the Xpulse's road presence is, I was very disappointed with the headlamp's light distribution. Yes, its a full-LED headlamp, but the illumination is quite poor and one should be careful while riding in the dark.
