Once launched in India, the XPulse 300 will compete with the KTM 390 adventure bike. At the same time, the Xtreme 300S bike can compete with KTM RC 390 and Apache RR 310.
Hero MotoCorp is about to launch two new bikes in the Indian market. These bikes have been seen during testing in the Leh-Ladakh area. One of these is an adventure motorcycle and the other is a fully faired bike. According to reports, these bikes are believed to be Hero XPulse 300 and Hero Xtreme 300S.
Obviously, Hero MotoCorp is the world’s largest motorcycle company in terms of sales. The company had earlier introduced its 200cc platform. Hero XPulse 200 off-roader, Hero XPulse 200T tourer and Hero Xtreme 200S have been made on this. According to reports, now the company is preparing to launch the 300cc platform. It is expected that the upcoming bikes will be based on this platform.
Although both the bikes have been covered in the pictures that surfaced, some of its parts reveal its details. Underneath the adventure bike is a red colored trellis frame, which was first seen on the XPulse 300 concept. Apart from this, the design of the clutch cover is also quite familiar.
What will be special in Hero XPulse 300
The Hero XPulse 300 test bike gets petal-type disc brakes and wire spoke wheels. The bike also gets a chrome side stand and rear swingarm, which is similar to the concept model. The bike also gets the RJ 14 registration plate, which is for Jaipur and Hero’s R&D facility is present here. Apart from this, spoke wheels have been given in the front and rear in the spotted bike. According to reports, it can be offered with a 300cc engine.
Features of Hero Xtreme 300S
The full-faired Hero Xtreme 300S gets multi-spoke alloy wheels and clip-on handlebars. A neatly designed fairing has also been given in its testing model. The Xtreme 300S bike is expected to get the same 300cc engine as the Hero XPulse 300. It will get road-spec tires instead of AT tires on the XPulse 300.
After being launched in India, Hero XPulse 300 can compete with Royal Enfield Himalayan, KTM 390 Adventure and BMW G 310 GS. At the same time, the Xtreme 300S can compete with KTM RC 390, Apache RR 310 and BMW G 310 RR.
