Hero X-pulse 200 4v vs Hero Xpulse 200t

Hero launched the Impulse in India a few years ago with the goal of giving adventure-seekers a taste of the road less traveled on a budget. There was nothing wrong with the bike, it was just ahead of its time and hence not warmly appreciated. Since that time, the motorcycle industry has seen significant transformations. Motorcycling enthusiasts in the nation are well-versed in the many sub-genres of the sport. Bicycle manufacturers are responding to this demand by creating larger and better bikes to meet the needs of a wider range of customers. Once again, Hero MotoCorp is one of these companies.

A new adventure tourer concept was shown at the 2017 EICMA exhibition in Milan by Hero. The XPulse 200 was unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo less than a year after the prototype was shown, and it was renamed the 4 valve engine XPulse 200. The XPulse 200T, a follow-up bike from Hero, is built on the same adventure touring platform as the original XPulse. Despite the fact that their engines and the majority of their components are identical, there are some tiny distinctions that distinguish the two motorcycles. Take a closer look at the two to see how they vary in practice.

Look & Design

Hero X-pulse 200 4v vs Hero Xpulse 200t look and Design

Both vehicles have distinct color schemes that can be seen at a glance. However, in contrast to its white-and-black-and-carbon-fiber-and-minimal-graphics-adorned predecessor, the Hero XPulse 200, the 200T had a combination of matte and glossy black paint. Clear windshield and elevated beak on the former; smoked windscreen and standard mudguards on the latter. Handguards, rubber fork gaiters, and a metal skid plate all come standard on the XPulse 200. However, the touring model has a plastic engine cover, but fork gaiters and handguards are missing. For long-distance travel, the XPulse 200T has a very comfortable, well-padded seat.

Both motorcycles include an all-digital instrument dashboard, LED lights on both ends, a top rack, crash protection, and pannier mounting possibilities.

 

Engine

Hero X-pulse 200 4v vs Hero Xpulse 200t Engin

Air and oil-cooled, this engine provides 18.4PS of power and 17.1Nm of torque in the 200cc XPulse and 200T models. While we anticipate the 200T to have a smaller sprocket, this should allow the bike’s power to be concentrated on top for a more comfortable ride at slower speeds. We anticipate the XPulse 200 to have a bigger sprocket because of its ADV orientation. You need more power in your bottom end while you’re off-roading so you can go faster.

Underpinning

In spite of its long-travel suspension, we anticipate the road-oriented XPulse 200 to be stiffly sprung since it will be used mostly on roads, not trails. On the 200T, the rider is 30mm lower than they would be on the 200 XPulse, thanks to the decreased saddle height and smaller 17″ wheels.

In addition, the tourer’s ergonomics have been tweaked a little bit as well. Compared to its off-road version, which has a tall and broad handlebar to better tackle rocky roads, it has a shorter and more comfortable handlebar. Hero Xpluse 200T seems to have inherited its brake arrangement from the Hero Xtreme 200R, which was shown at EICMA 2017 and 2018. Hero plans to keep the XPulse 200’s pricing considerably below the XPulse 200, which may explain the bike’s conventional-looking braking system. Both motorcycles, however, come equipped with a single-channel ABS.

In the end, the 200T gets a low-mounted end can with rerouted exhaust pipes as the last upgrade. To prevent the XPulse 200’s engine from being waterlogged when traversing streams, rivers, etc., the XPulse 200 has a high-mounted exhaust system. As a bonus, the low-mounted exhaust on the tourer provides additional space for panniers or saddlebags.

 

Final Verdict

The decision between the two versions based on the same platform is apparent. The Xpulse 200 4v is ideal for adventurers on a budget who often explore the trails. When it comes to road trips, the Xpulse 200T should be able to handle everything you throw at it.
