Hero MotoCorp has been teasing the updated XPulse 200T 4V on its social media pages for quite some time now, and it has officially been launched at a price of Rs 1.25 lakh (ex-showroom). The firm claims that the 200T 4V now comes with better touring capabilities, enhanced state-of-the-art technology, and significant performance improvements.
A 199.6cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled, fuel-injected, 4-stroke, 4-valve engine powers the new Hero XPulse 200T 4V. At 8,500rpm, this motor produces 19bhp of maximum power and 17.35Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission. According to Hero, the XPulse 200T 4V has 6% additional power and 5% more torque than its predecessor.
In terms of features, the XPulse 200T 4V comprises a side stand sensor in addition to an LED headlight and an LCD instrument console with smartphone connectivity for call alerts and turn-by-turn navigation. It also includes an under seat USB charger. Alloy wheels and its single front and rear disc brake configuration with telescopic front forks and monoshock have been carried through.
Speaking of design, the Hero XPulse 200T 4V now has a sportier appearance thanks to the new two-tone paint options. The motorcycle is available in three colour schemes - Sports Red, Matt Funk Lime Yellow, and Matt Shield Gold. While the overall design remains the same, the XPulse 200T 4V now has gaitered front forks, a small fly screen over the LED headlamp, and a body colour painted head case. The rear tail rack has been replaced by a tubular grab rail, although the alloy design, scooped seat, and side panels have been retained.
