EICMA 2018: Hero MotoCorp has unveiled the new Xpulse 200 T at EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy. The new Hero XPulse 200 T will be launched alongside the standard model in the near future. While the standard model is focussed on off-roading, the Hero XPulse 200 T is more suited for touring.
Hero MotoCorp states that the new XPulse 200 T is "a tourer that offers customers, modern technology in retro styling" with a comfortable riding position. The ergonomics is also suited for long-distance rides and it can carry decent amounts of luggage too.
Compared to the Hero XPulse (shown), the 200 T comes with a 30mm-lower ground clearance along with a different handlebar and seat. It also rides on conventional 17-inch wheels at both ends while the regular model gets a 21-inch front wheel.
The new Hero XPulse 200 T comes equipped with a single-channel ABS, LED lights and a digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation. A unique flyscreen and MRF Revz tyres also add to the equipment list.
Hero MotoCorp also showcased the new XPulse 200T in four other concept formats: Cafe Racer, Desert, Scrambler and Flat-Track; some of the models which could be launched in the future. The company seems to be heading to a new direction in the 200cc motorcycle segment.
Powering the Hero XPulse 200 T is the same 198cc single-cylinder engine found on the Hero Xtreme 200R. It develops 18.1bhp at 8000rpm and 17.1Nm of torque at 6500rpm on the Xtreme 200R but is expected to come in a different tune in the XPulse 200 T.
As per reports, the Hero XPulse 200 is expected to launch in India by December 2018. Prices should be around Rs 1.5 lakh ex-showroom.
