Among the recently launched, 200 cc Hero MotoCorp trio, the Xtreme 200S is attracting more attention of potential buyers than the XPulse 200 and the XPulse 200T, reports BikeWale.
The 200 cc trio was launched in India last month, and we are yet to receive product-wise sales performance of the motorcycles. However, select dealerships have confirmed to the motoring portal that the Xtreme 200S is in higher demand than the XPulse 200 duo. Do note that the Xtreme 200S is costlier than the XPulse 200 and the XPulse 200T. The fully-faired member of the Xtreme family is available for INR 98,500*, while the XPulse 200 (carb) costs INR 97,000*. The road-focused XPulse 200T can be yours for INR 94,000*. The fuel-injected XPulse 200 retails for INR 1.05 lakh*.
The 200 cc motorcycles were designed and developed at the Hero Centre of Innovation and Technology (CIT). All three models carry a premium hardware setup that includes full LED headlight, digital instrument console with a first-in-class Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation.
The carb variants share identical engine specifications. The 199.6 cc oil-cooled single-cylinder engine makes 18.4 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 17.1 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The XPulse 200 is the only model among the three that comes with the option of fuel injection technology, although the performance numbers are no different from the carburettor model. The carburettor and fuel injected models employ a five-speed gearbox.
Anchoring hardware includes single-discs on both wheels while the safety net includes single-channel ABS on the 200 cc trio. While the Xtreme 200S and the XPulse 200T feature conventional rotors, the XPulse 200 comes with petal-type discs on both ends.
The XPulse 200 comes with a 21-inch front wheel for enhanced off-roading prowess. Other off-road-focused hardware on the XPulse 200 includes wire-spoke wheels, engine bash plate, fork gaiters and a tall-set front fender. A wind deflector is standard on this model. The road-biased Xtreme 200S and the XPulse 200T, on the other hand, use 17-inch alloy wheels that come wrapped in tubeless tyres. The 17-inch wheels give the Xtreme 200S and XPulse 200T better on-road handling.
People who have booked the Xpulse duo can expect the deliveries to commence by mid-June. The XTreme 200S factory dispatches, as mentioned in the source report, are likely to start soon.
