Hero MotoCorp is getting ready to launch a new version of the Xpulse 200 in Nepal. It could arrive sometime next year. A new variant of the Hero XPulse 200 off-roader has been spotted testing and could still be in the production stage. While Hero MotoCorp has not confirmed anything about the launch date yet. The Hero XPulse 200 was first launched back in 2019 in Nepal. The company then has regularly updated the motorcycle and now getting another update with the BS6 norms. The biggest update on the XPulse comes in the form of a 4-valve head replacing the current 2-valve assembly bike.
At present, Hero Xpulse 200 gets a 199.6 cc single-cylinder motor with a two-valve head that seems to have been upgraded to a four-valve head. The addition of more valves will result in an increase in power output with better refinement from the engine. The bike still will remain mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The motorcycle is set to use telescopic front forks and a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock to handle the shock absorption tasks. The braking duties are covered by single discs on both wheels including a single-channel ABS.
The spy shots also reveal new color options for the Hero XPulse 200 which may include black and blue. The upcoming Xpulse 200 4V in Nepal is likely to continue with an LED headlight, LED taillight, a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster, large petal discs with ABS, an upswept exhaust, and an aluminum bash plate. The XPulse also comes with a slew of exclusive features including Smartphone connectivity, and on-screen navigation. The ground clearance is likely to remain the same which is 220mm.
The Hero XPulse 200 in Nepal is currently available at the starting price of NRs. 3.85 lakhs. According to the company after such updates, the price range is likely to hike more. There's no word on the launch yet but we can expect the model to arrive possibly late by 2021 or by early 2022. The ADV is likely to come with a rally kit-equipped variant too.
