    The Hero Xpulse looks rugged due to the off-road tyres, paint scheme and tall stance. The motorcycle comes with all the modern features such as LED headlamps, fog lamp and monoshock suspension at the rear. The Xpulse will draw power from a 200cc engine borrowed from the Xtreme 200S. The Xpulse is said to be the most anticipated upcoming Hero bike in 2018 and expected to launch by the end of this year.

    Hero 125cc Scooter

    Hero will also reveal a new 125cc scooter at the Auto Expo 2018. In the past few years, the 125cc scooter segment has seen considerable growth. Now, Hero is readying its new scooter which is expected to go on sale in 2018. There are no details about the new scooter, but at the 2014 Auto Expo, Hero had showcased a concept model named as Dare.

    We expect the new 125cc scooter to be a premium offering with modern design and lot of features. As of now, Hero is tight-lipped about the new scooter. Hero is likely to reveal the production version of the Dare at the upcoming Auto Expo 2018.

    Hero Xtreme 200S

    First unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo, the Hero Xtreme 200S was expected to be launched in 2017. But now, the company has decided to launch the premium naked motorcycle on January 30, 2018, and will display the bike at the Auto Expo 2018. Expect the motorcycle to be priced around Rs 1 lakh.

    The Hero Xtreme 200S will be equipped with premium features such as digital-analogue instrument cluster, monoshock suspension at the rear and sporty body panels. The motorcycle will draw power from a 200cc air-cooled, single cylinder engine. But we hope that Hero will bump up the power output to take on its competition such as Bajaj Pulsar NS200, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and Yamaha FZ5.

    DriveSpark's Thoughts On Upcoming Hero Bikes At Auto Expo 2018

    Hero's Auto Expo 2018 lineup has become very exciting with the addition of the Xpulse adventure motorcycle. The new 125cc scooter will be another product to watch as there are no details on the product as of now. But we think that Hero is a bit late to launch the Xtreme 200S as the competition is modern and more powerful than the Xtreme 200S.
