The Xpulse 200 4V, an off-road motorcycle from Hero MotoCorp, will soon get an upgrade. In the teaser clip, we can see the Xpulse's instrument cluster with its three riding modes (road, off-road, and rally) shown on the right side. However, the ending may turn out quite otherwise. The dual-purpose motorbike will also have upgraded features, such as an updated headlight that is both brighter and more large. Hero seems to have prioritised addressing this issue after getting it raised by several XPulse owners. The bike manufacturer announced the change on its social media page. Additionally, similar to the newly released Xtreme 160R, you can anticipate some visual changes in the form of new decals and colour schemes as part of the update.

Hero XPulse 4V: What to Expect
The footage shows the XPulse 200's right-side digital instruments in its various riding modes (Road, Off-Road, and Rally). Different ABS settings are available depending on the riding style. While Hero's current XPulse only comes with single-channel ABS, we anticipate that the revised model will come with standard dual-channel ABS. Road mode will have full ABS, Off-road mode will have rear-wheel ABS turned off, and Rally mode will have no ABS at all. It's possible that the engine's mapping will change depending on the mode. Adding an RBW (Ride-By-Wire) system, modifying the ECU, and adding some other components would increase the cost of the XPulse, diminishing its competitive advantage. The revised XPulse 200 4V will likely gain weight owing to the inclusion of a more robust dual-channel ABS control unit.
Hero XPulse 4V: Engine
We anticipate that Hero will look and function similarly, albeit maybe the switch cubes used to access the various ride modes will be modified somewhat. The 199.6cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine producing 18.8bhp and 17.35Nm is likewise not likely to undergo any changes. The gearbox would have five gears.

Estimated Cost of the Hero XPulse 4V
The current selling price of the XPulse 200 4V from Hero MotoCorp is Rs 1.36 lakh (ex-showroom). With all of these new features and improvements, one can anticipate a price increase of about Rs 10,000 to Rs 12,000. The XPulse 200 4V will still be the market's most reasonably priced adventure-focused dual-purpose motorcycle despite the price increase.
