The Hero Xpulse 200 was introduced in the Indian market in April 2019. Since then, the dual-sport motorcycle has been successful in creating a huge fan following in the country. Enthusiasts prefer this machine for its applaudable off-road capabilities, easy and affordable maintenance, and Hero MotoCorp’s vast service network. Perhaps, it’s because of these factors, the Xpulse 200 has received immense love from enthusiasts in Kerala and, thus, surpassed the 10,000 sales milestone in the state.
Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, has announced that it has sold over 10,000 units of the Xpulse 200 in Kerala since the motorcycle was launched in April 2019. Commenting on the occasion, Naveen Chauhan, Head – Sales and Aftersales, Hero MotoCorp, said:
