Auto Expo 2018: Hero MotoCorp Introduces India's First 200cc Adventure Bike XPulse

Here's a look at TVS Creon

Unveiled at EICMA a year ago, Hero MotoCorp have showcased the new XPulse concept motorcycle at the Auto Expo 2018. The Hero XPulse 200 made its world premiere at the prestigious EICMA 2017 in Milan, Italy.

The prices of the new models have not been announced yet. This feature is very useful, especially in off-road conditions. This engine produces 18.2 BHP of max power at 8000 RPM and 17.1 Nm of peak torque at 6500 RPM, while it comes mated to a 5-speed transmission. Described as an adventurous and dynamic on/off road motorcycle, it gets an array of new touring friendly features including turn-by-turn navigation.

"The aluminium skid plate, 21" front wheel and 18" rear wheel with dual objective tyres, 220mm ground clearance, mono shock with 10 step adjustable gas charged rear suspension (170mm wheel travel) and telescopic front suspension (190mm stroke) provides strength to take on any terrain. The bike gets a long travel suspension setup with 190 mm telescopic forks up front and 180 mm travel monoshock unit at the rear. They also bring the company's idle-stop-start system to the scooter segment for enhanced fuel efficiency. The Hero XPulse 200 will replace the now discontinued Hero Impulse adventure tourer and will be positioned as a flagship offering from the company in India once launched. All the products have been designed and developed by the company's in-house R&D team based at Hero Innovation Centre, Jaipur.

"There was a clear gap in the on-off category, the usage was there but no relevant offer". The XPulse will address the growing trend of adventure riding in India and in global markets. "On the other side, our 125cc scooters will grasp the shift happening towards higher capacity segments in scooters, enabling us to cover 99 per cent of the scooter segment", Masson said. "Aligned with this strategy, we have showcased two new scooters and a dual objective motorcycle here which will be launched later this year".
