The much-anticipated budget adventure tourers from Hero, the XPulse 200 and the XPulse 200T have finally been spotted testing in India. And, from the looks of it, the duo seem to be production ready. Both the bikes are expected to be launched in India by early 2019 and share the same engine and similar underpinnings. That said, the XPulse 200 is more off-road biased, while the XPulse 200T is a road-biased version.
We expect the manufacturer to price the XPulse 200 around Rs 1.2 lakh, while the XPulse 200T is expected to be priced slightly lower, at around Rs 1.1 lakh. The Royal Enfield Himalayan has been unrivalled up until now in terms of pricing, but it’ll face stiff competition from the XPulse 200 which is positioned as the most affordable adventure tourer. The XPulse 200T, on the other hand, will go up against the Bajaj Pulsar 220F and TVS Apache RTR 200 4V.
