Hero MotoCorp has introduced the Hero XPulse 200T, which now conforms to BS6 emissions regulations. The updated bike is priced at Rs. 1,12,800 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and receives only the updates needed to meet the latest emissions regulations. Hero has made no further changes to the design or features of the BS6 XPulse 200T. The XPulse 200T is part of the Hero XPulse 200 bike range, which contains the popular XPulse 200 adventure bike, as well as the Hero Xtreme 200S, both of which are built on the same platform. Officially, Hero MotoCorp has not yet announced the launch of the new XPulse 200T.
Hero XPulse 200T Engine
The updated single-cylinder 199.6 cc, oil-cooled and injected fuel engine produces 17.8 hp at 8,500 rpm and 16.15 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. With an engine tuned to meet BS6 regulations, as well as a different exhaust design, both power and torque have been sacrificed for cleaner emissions. The BS4 version of the same engine was used to generate 18.1 hp at 8,000 rpm and 17.1 Nm at 6,500 rpm. Other details, such as design, features and parts of the course, remain the same on the BS6 XPulse 200T. The 2021 Hero XPulse 200T will be available in Sports Red, Panther Black and Matte Shield Gold.
Hero XPulse 200T Features
The XPulse 200T has a LED headlight and an LCD digital controller with Bluetooth connectivity, call alerts, and step-by-step navigation. Suspension duties are handled by a 37 mm telescopic front fork and seven adjustable single-step rear steps. The XPulse 200T runs on 17-inch wheels and measures 177mm off the ground, with an empty weight of 154kg. Unlike the Hero XPulse 200 with its standard off-road capability, the XPulse 200T was not a huge commercial success for the Hero MotoCorp. In the second entry with BS6 updates, Hero hopes to have better sales volumes with the XPulse 200T.
