Hero Motocorp has removed the Xpulse 200 2V motorcycle from its official website. This hints that the two-wheeler maker might have discontinued the model in the Indian market. Now the Xpulse 200 will be sold only in its 4V avatar. When the 4V was launched, it was expected that Hero MotoCorp would discontinue the Xpulse 200 2V as the 4V version is an advanced version of the 2V. Hero Motocorp is also working on a more powerful version of the Xpulse, which is expected to be launched in the Indian market next year.
Hero Xpulse 200 2V was priced at Rs 1.27 lakh (ex-showroom). Currently, the price of Xpulse 200 4V is Rs 1.37 lakh (ex-showroom). That is, it is Rs 10,000 costlier than the Xpulse 200 2V.
The Xpulse has become a favorite motorcycle among those who want to do off-roading and trail riding. This is due to its reliability and affordable cost of maintenance. Moreover, even if something breaks when the motorcycle falls while off-roading, it is easy to procure and replace any broken parts thanks to Hero MotoCorp’s extensive service network.
Powering the Xpulse 200 4V is a 199.6 cc, single-cylinder engine that is air-oil cooled. It generates maximum power of 18.8 bhp at 8,500 rpm and peak torque output of 17.35 Nm at 6,500 rpm. A 5-speed gearbox is available with this engine.
However, the discussion is hot in the market about the upcoming Xpulse 421. The engine will be single-cylinder and is expected to be liquid-cooled. According to the report, sources say that Xpulse 421 will not be less powerful. Hence it is expected that its power output will be between 35 to 40 bhp. This motorcycle can be launched in two variants.
