After our top 5 125cc and 150-160cc motorcycles list, we have now curated a list of the top 5 most affordable 200cc bikes you can buy in India. Let’s take a look at all the models and what they have to offer.
Hero Xpulse 200T
Starting off the list is the Hero Xpulse 200T. It’s priced at Rs 1,20,650 (ex-showroom Delhi) and packs a 199.6cc single-cylinder oil-cooled motor. The setup belts out 17.83 bhp and 16.15 Nm and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The Xpulse 200T is a more commuter-friendly version of its off-road-oriented sibling. It gets an LED headlight and a Bluetooth-compatible instrument cluster as well. Hero offers the Xpulse 200T in three colours - Panther Black, Sports Red and Matte Shield Gold.
Hero Xpulse 200
The Xpulse 200 (2-valve version) has also made it to the list with its asking price set to Rs 1,23,250 (ex-showroom Delhi). It packs the same engine and features as its sibling, Xpulse 200T. That said, the Xpulse has been a favored option for off-roading by both, beginners as well as seasoned riders. It gets long-travel suspension and spoked wheels wrapped in dual-purpose rubber.
