The Hero Xpulse 200 2V, comparatively more reasonable than the Hero Xpulse 200 4V, is nowhere to be seen on Hero Motocorp's official website.
The Hero Xpulse 200 2V is no longer listed on Hero Motocorp's website. Speculations are going on that the manufacturer has finally replaced the Hero Xpulse 200 2V with the recently introduced Hero Xpulse 200 4V by delisting it from the website, which further hints at its discontinuation in India.
A 199cc, single-cylinder motor powers both the Hero Xpulse 200 2V and the Hero Xpulse 200 4V. However, the Hero Xpulse 200 2V's engine makes 17.8bhp and 16.45Nm whereas the Hero Xpulse 200 4V with its latest 4-valve engine puts out 18.8bhp and 17.35Nm. Priced at ₹1.27 lakh (ex-showroom), the Xpulse 200 2V is ₹10,000 less expensive than the 200 4V, which costs ₹1.37 lakh (ex-showroom). Apart from this, the two motorcycles from Hero Motocorp are similar, except for the new paint scheme on the motocross-inspired bodywork.
Hero Motocorp is yet to officially confirm the discontinuation of the Hero Xpulse 200 2V. Reportedly, the firm is expected to introduce the Xpulse 400 sometime in late 2023 with an engine that is bigger in terms of capacity. If launched, this expected motorcycle will probably compete with the likes of the KTM 390 Adventure and the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
