New Hero Xpulse 200 4V vs Old Xpulse 200
The most significant upgrade in the Xpulse 200 4V is the updated engine with the added oomph factor. The old Xpulse 200 was powered by a BS6 compliant 199.6cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled, fuel-injected, 4-stroke, 2-valve engine that pumped out 17.8 PS of power at 8500 RPM and 16.45 Nm of torque at 6500 RPM. On the other hand, the Xpulse 200 4V gets the same engine with a 4-valve head and it develops 19.1 PS of power at 8500 RPM and 17.35 Nm of torque at 6500 RPM. The engine of the Xpulse 200 4V is paired with a significantly improved 5-speed gearbox.
So, the new Hero Xpulse 200 4V produces around 6 per cent more power and 5 per cent more torque than the standard model. But, it is also 1 kg heavier than the standard model. For better heat management in heavy city traffic conditions, the Xpulse 200 4V also gets a better cooling system with a 7 fin oil cooler. The other advantage of the new Xpulse 200 4V over the old model includes an updated LED headlamp that will provide better illumination at night. The Hero Xpulse 200 4V also gets new colour schemes. The ADV will be available in three exciting colour options. They are Trail Blue, Blitz Blue, and Red Raid.
Hardware and Features
The new Hero Xpulse 200 4V gets the same hardware as the standard Xpulse 200. This means that the motorcycle gets long-travel telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock absorber at the rear. For braking duties, the ADV gets a disc brake at the front as well as at the rear along with a single-channel ABS. The feature list of the motorcycle remains unchanged and it still gets a digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity. It features Hero Connect technology too.
The new Hero Xpulse 200 4V has been launched at Rs 1.28 lakhs, Ex-showroom Delhi. It is the most affordable adventure motorcycle in India and doesn’t have any direct rivals.
