The XPulse 200 and the Royal Enfield Himalayan have a lot of things in common. Both bikes are meant to be ridden on the road as well as off the road. That is why you will see a large travel on the suspension, good ground clearance, and the on-off road tyres. Plus, you don’t need to spend a million rupees to find yourself an ADV. The XPulse 200 and the Himalayan are accessible with respect to pricing as well as the saddle height.
At BikeWale, both the bikes have been ridden extensively, through long term bikes and also through self-ownership. So, this time around, we decided to compare these bikes and know their strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities.
