Hero MotoCorp is in news nowadays for its new bikes touted to be both sportsbike as well as tourer i.e. the Hero HX200R & Xpulse 200 and 200T. Also, the company has been teasing the launch for 1st May. There will be 2 editions for the tourer bikes of Hero including XPulse 200 bike, which is an adventure tourer, and the Xpulse 200T which is road specced motorcycle from the house of Hero.
The tourer off-roading version of Hero i.e. the Xpulse 200T and XPulse 200 is powered with the 200cc air-cooled, fuel-injected engine churning out 18.7PS of power and 17.1Nm of torque while being incorporated with a 5-speed transmission. With the long-travel suspension and larger spoked wheels (21-inch up front and 18-inch at the rear), the XPulse 200 is better at the water-wading having knuckle guards and a sump guard.
While the Xpulse 200T is a road specced version in a black matte finish having 17-inch alloy wheels fitted with a 100/80-section tyre at the front and a 130/70-section tyre at the rear. Coming to the similarity, they have a full-digital Bluetooth enabled instrument console, LED lights and single-channel ABS.
Also, there are some rumours about the next-gen Karizma, a fully faired sportbike in the loop nametagged as Hero HX200R. However, the information on the bike is very scarce still we might find some clue very soon.
