  • Off-road hero in budget

    Divya Prakash

    Last time I had a very bad experience with the Bajaj pulsar rs 200 on Kathmandu trip. I almost crushed the bike from the lower side and then I came to know the difference between a racing bike and an adventure riding bike. My friend has a RE Himalayan but he suggested hero xpulse for myself. I drove Himalayan many times and got satisfied with the performance but never tried the xpulse ever, that's why I was a little bit confused. Finally, after so many test drives I bought a hero xpulse 200 4v.
    The design looks stylish and born for off-road. It's not a cruiser either but if you are not a speedster you won't regret it. It feels very smooth at the speed of 90 kmph on highways. Suspensions, seat and sitting position are comfortable. Brakes do fine. Compared with re Himalayan it has 20 percent lesser power and 45 percent lesser torque but power to weight ratios of both the bikes reach closer due to 20 percent lesser weight of xpulse. In real life when i go off road don't feel much difference between the two. 10 kmpl of extra mileage and 1 lac lesser price of hero xpulse 200 4v seems to be economic and budget-friendly.
    Pros.
    1- it is sturdier than other motorbikes of this price range.
    2- it feels powerful and torque is enough for mountainous or rocky terrains.
    3- upward exhaust is capable of going underwater deeper than re himalayan.
    4- fully digital meter with navigation and charging point.
    5- light weight of the bike provides a better and more effortless handling.
    6- one of the cheapest adventure riding motorbikes.
    7- spares and servicing costs are also cheaper than re.
    8- availability of spares and services is not a problem.
    Cons.
    1- top speed is not as good as re himalayan.
    2- it's felt lack of torque at low rpm.
    3- compared with re himalayan the handle bar is not so comfortable for riding the bike in a standing position.

  • An eye-candy that does all stuff while being pocket friendly. The hero xpulse 200 4v.

    2 years ago


    Adarsh M S

    Someone who's totally into sports tourers and power cruisers has chosen an off-roader to be his ride mate.
    I just got my xpulse 200 4v registered and delivered to me on my my birthday. I badly wanted this birthday to be damn special.
    Just like any common enthusiast I totally spent hours on youtube and forums like bikewale to see if xpulse would make me regret and all the doubts got kicked on its bottom when I twisted the throttle today.
    The initial pull is impressive! I got admit that, I have ridden my fazer 2012 - midnight special for about 15,000 kms and was looking for an upgrade over 250cc. I happened to choose the xpulse totally because of its practicality and price point. I didn't get disappointed with my first rev on this bike, brakes are adequate, power bank is enough for the city and occasional tours. I got say it out loud, everyone of us enter the bike hunt with things in mind like we're gonna hit ladakh in a week and race the laguna seca/ nürburgring in the next. But 99.9% of us ride the city and roads filled with gutters. For that I consider hero xpulse 200 4v to be a gem, although the seats are on the shorter side, it may take a toll on your rear if you're full figured like I am.
    The lights are claimed to be puny and useless, but surprisingly it is wonderful and more than adequate to me in the streets with no lights.
    The heat from the engine is there in a considerable amount, but yeah, the first service will make it manageable.
    The ride posture is very commanding and upright that you feel like a boss while riding it, the stance alone will steal a lotta glance from the people. I personally loved the aggressive updation on the stickers they've done with the 4v. Mine is a raid red and my baby cousin loves it.
    So, if you're in a budget, looking for a motorcycle that can go anywhere; if you wanna get a one that won't burn a hole in your pocket ; if you wanna make the heads turn, go for the xpulse 200 4v, i just rode 45 kms inside the city and the streets with a pillion and we both are going to sleep peacefully with nothing but the bare minimum of the body soreness that's gifted by the pollution and traffic.
    Lemme list out the pros and cons quickly so that, the someone who always want to cut to the chase can be helped with my review.
    Pros:
    1. The posture.
    2. Adequate power.
    3. Mileage.
    4. Looks.
    5. Maintenance cost.
    6. Vocal for the local
    7. Exhaust note (the screeching noise is loveable, mimics the latest duke 250 somewhere by a bit, but it's totally my personal opinion)
    8. Side stand engine cut off option (my friend's brand new apache 200 4v, just tell and broke its tank fairing - it showed neutral but when my niece pressed on the self start button, it moved and voila, bonk!!!)
    Let's get into the cons right away and please note that there's absolutely zero bias and no 'cutting some slack's' gonna happen here
    Cons:
    1. Gear position indicator (it irritates the living devil out of me)
    2. Seats (could have been better.
    3. Navigation is sloppy sometimes, as if it was my phone with bad network that caused it, but yeah again, it is not so great.
    4. Horn. (sounds sharp and sufficient but not upto my likeness. I'm a lover of the dual horn setups of pulsars, apaches and r15s. My fazer's horn is the same as the r15s and it is really good)
    And that is it guys, a review of my brand new hero xpulse 200 4v for your reference and i have totally answered my own questions up there as I have just got my bike, hence it is tested, experienced and written down neatly for all.
    For all's notice, I named my xpulse as x23. and it is the best ever gift I have gifted myself so far. 3 years ago, it was my used fazer - midnight special that still stands next to x23.

  • No response from hero moto corp.

    1 year ago


    Arun Kumar

    Very bad experience to buy this bike bcoz there is no good response from all staff of hero moto corp. Customer care service, and dealership services are very very poor. They only sell bikes after that If you face any problem with the bike no one will help you. Customer care never knows where is dealership is and who official of hero moto is working in that district from hero moto.
    So I really disappointed with the service of the total hero moto corp. Don't buy it bcoz it works like govt. Sector.

    Sukumar

    I purchase Xpulse 200 4v [ 04.04.2022] in RP motors hero showroom Pollachi.  I rode my vehicle at 2rpm and 3rpm vehicle off and the vehicle ran missing. Last week I am visiting the service centre and telling about my problem but they are simply ignoring me and not responding to me. Very poor service, I will tell you about my problems in  6 months in Pollachi showroom. They told me to go to Coimbatore Sugana automobiles. When I go to the showroom in Coimbatore, the service team told me to wait 1 day, as I am waiting for one day. The team will be informed my technician will clean the head and valve. And the team told you your problem to solve. And I will take my bike and again the problem comes suddenly I reach out to Pollachi RP motors and they will tell bring the vehicle will rectify the problem, I go to the showroom and they will ask to give1 day time they will see the problem. When I go in the evening time they told me the vehicle is now ready. If we ask what is the problem in it, he told us to flash the ecm, they told us the complaint was rectified. I will take the vehicle again complaint has not been rectified. My nearby friends asked about my vehicle's performance for purchasing but now I am very disappointed with the hero brand. Kindly take action and rectify my problems do needed.

  • Worthy Machine

    2 years ago


    Suraj Singh

    I just bought the bike a week ago. Since then am riding this bike for every purpose
    I will give 4.5 out of 5 rating to the looks and 9 out of 10 to the performance
    People do ask me for the pricing of bike. This machine seeks public attention
    Thus this bike is a low maintenance bike.
    Pros :- 1. Braking
    2. Mileage
    3. Budget friendly
    4. Power is good
    5. Instrument clusters are easy to use
    6. Sound of the machine
    7. Seat height is good enough for 5.6" people
    And many more etc.
    Cons :- 1. Company should given 6th gear
    2. Performance is on the Top
    3. Headlight is not that much powerful
    That's my point of view
    Beginners should go for the xpulse 200 4v

    Lovely

    The bike look is stylish. Whenever you sit on the bike and turn on the ignition , you will feel , you are turning on your inner “biker” . It attracts people attention and gives you a special feeling.
    Performance wise - no doubt ride is smooth . You will not have to worry about the road condition ( on road / off road - city / rural , if you are riding this bike.
    Servicing & maintenance - do or go for the service as prescribed to get best performance.

  • No matter what you face xpulse has got your back!

    1 year ago


    Ravi Gupta

    The buying experience was brilliant; I took three test drives of xpulse 4v and 2 test drives of xpulse bs6 before making my decision. All the test drives were from the same store, and the staff was helpful. On the day of purchase, the store took care of everything and made the process super fast and easy. They gave me bike within 2 hours, including all the documentation time.
    It's been 1 month since i bought this bike, and i have ridden it for more than 1900km within a month. I do enough touring usually but haven't got the chance for proper touring on xpulse. However, I have driven it for around 150-200 km in a day thrice, and trust me; it is capable. Talking about the seat, I don't like it much and got it replaced on day 1 from khajanchi, karol bagh. Spent the purchase day in karol bagh only; got backrest and top rack installed, got seat cushiony, added auxiliary light (stock headlight is not so useful in dark), and changed leg guards. I could not find a decent windshield, and that is necessary, which i am still looking for. After the seat change, seat height has increased by around half a centimeter, and i am 5'7". Seat height is actually not an issue once you are comfortable on it.
    This bike glides through rough terrain; i sometimes go to rough terrains of sonepat just to enjoy it. It moves like a breeze; however, I feel handlebars could have been a bit higher. Will get a higher handlebar soon as handlebar risers are not easily available.
    Xpusle 4v is pretty; you will know it when you see how people look at it. In almost every parking, people are staring at it, and i get a lot of questions about the bike. This bike is brilliantly capable off-road; however, highway performance could have been better. Traffic maneuvering is quite easy, but I sometimes feel wobble at high speeds (above 115kmph). My 8 year old avenger 220 is way more stable at speeds over 115kmph (but that's obvious given its cruiser ergonomics). However, you can easily maintain a speed of 95-100 kmph constantly without feeling any significant vibration. Engine is refined and smooth, and gear ratios are lovely (can go 90+ in fourth gear, and you can pick up from 30 kmph from fifth gear). To be honest, I am pretty sure that I can do 800-1000 km in a day easily, given its overall performance and capabilities.
    Let me tell you about its mileage. Before the first service, I was getting easy mileage of 40 kmpl as I was not riding above 70kmph. Got my first service in the first week, and as soon as I started revving harder, the mileage dropped to 36kmpl. I think 36kmpl is fine, but my eight-year-old avenger still gives a constant mileage of 33kmpl (provided it's a bs3 bike).
    Maintenance of xpulse is not an issue; my first service cost me just inr 1110, which is majorly the cost of the full synthetic engine oil (as the first 5 services are free of labor charges). Xpulse has a warranty of 5 years or 70k km, whichever is earlier, and this is such a relief. This warranty covers all of the engine (all the major parts) and suspension. I go off-road tension-free knowing that I am covered.
    Now, i will make a quick pros and cons list.
    Pros:
    - value for money (every penny you spend on xpulse is always well spent)
    - great road presence
    - decent mileage (when driven at decent speeds)
    - refined engine
    - gear ratios
    - off-road capabilities
    - easy to maintain
    - 5 years warranty cover
    - brilliant service reach of hero
    - lightweight (makes off-roading breeze)
    Cons
    - headlamps (you would surely need auxiliary lights if roads do not have proper lighting)
    - inconsistent mileage (only if you hit the revs hard)
    - "slight" heating (can be felt in traffic situations)
    - no center stand (not a con for me but others might have a problem with this)
    - lightweight (can cause little inconvenience while carrying luggage on tours)
    Note: my rating is actually 4.5 stars as there is a little scope of improvement which can be addressed easily.

  • Awesome experience! suspension is love

    1 year ago


    Khanjan Das

    I sold my old 150cc 4valve bajaj discover with rear monoshock, which was giving me good experience with 60+ mileage and bought this xpulse 200 4valve. I do a daily 2 km commute to my workplace (mostly flat road) and on weekends I go for small riding trips with friends. So far the bike is pretty good in handling below 90 kmph and the economy is also good in between 35-40 kmpl. What I like the most about this bike is the wheels are so big in radius that small potholes and small speed breakers are not a thing anymore. Rumble strips, I don’t even look at them anymore. Suspensions are so good! the engine is refined compared to the old xpulse model which I rode last year from a friend of mine. Also one important thing, it has a kick start in case you wanna go to cold areas, or if u don’t use ur bike too often and it remains in the garage for several days, this saves you!

    1. Gear position indicator (it irritates the living devil out of me)
    2. Seats (could have been better.
    3. Navigation is sloppy sometimes, as if it was my phone with bad network that caused it, but yeah again, it is not so great.
    4. Horn. (sounds sharp and sufficient but not upto my likeness. I'm a lover of the dual horn setups of pulsars, apaches and r15s. My fazer's horn is the same as the r15s and it is really good)
    And that is it guys, a review of my brand new hero xpulse 200 4v for your reference and i have totally answered my own questions up there as I have just got my bike, hence it is tested, experienced and written down neatly for all.
    For all's notice, I named my xpulse as x23. and it is the best ever gift I have gifted myself so far. 3 years ago, it was my used fazer - midnight special that still stands next to x23.

    Very bad experience to buy this bike bcoz there is no good response from all staff of hero moto corp. Customer care service, and dealership services are very very poor. They only sell bikes after that If you face any problem with the bike no one will help you. Customer care never knows where is dealership is and who official of hero moto is working in that district from hero moto.
    So I really disappointed with the service of the total hero moto corp. Don't buy it bcoz it works like govt. Sector.

    I purchase Xpulse 200 4v [ 04.04.2022] in RP motors hero showroom Pollachi.  I rode my vehicle at 2rpm and 3rpm vehicle off and the vehicle ran missing. Last week I am visiting the service centre and telling about my problem but they are simply ignoring me and not responding to me. Very poor service, I will tell you about my problems in  6 months in Pollachi showroom. They told me to go to Coimbatore Sugana automobiles. When I go to the showroom in Coimbatore, the service team told me to wait 1 day, as I am waiting for one day. The team will be informed my technician will clean the head and valve. And the team told you your problem to solve. And I will take my bike and again the problem comes suddenly I reach out to Pollachi RP motors and they will tell bring the vehicle will rectify the problem, I go to the showroom and they will ask to give1 day time they will see the problem. When I go in the evening time they told me the vehicle is now ready. If we ask what is the problem in it, he told us to flash the ecm, they told us the complaint was rectified. I will take the vehicle again complaint has not been rectified. My nearby friends asked about my vehicle's performance for purchasing but now I am very disappointed with the hero brand. Kindly take action and rectify my problems do needed.

    I just bought the bike a week ago. Since then am riding this bike for every purpose
    I will give 4.5 out of 5 rating to the looks and 9 out of 10 to the performance
    People do ask me for the pricing of bike. This machine seeks public attention
    Thus this bike is a low maintenance bike.
    Pros :- 1. Braking
    2. Mileage
    3. Budget friendly
    4. Power is good
    5. Instrument clusters are easy to use
    6. Sound of the machine
    7. Seat height is good enough for 5.6" people
    And many more etc.
    Cons :- 1. Company should given 6th gear
    2. Performance is on the Top
    3. Headlight is not that much powerful
    That's my point of view
    Beginners should go for the xpulse 200 4v

    Lovely

    The bike look is stylish. Whenever you sit on the bike and turn on the ignition , you will feel , you are turning on your inner “biker” . It attracts people attention and gives you a special feeling.
    Performance wise - no doubt ride is smooth . You will not have to worry about the road condition ( on road / off road - city / rural , if you are riding this bike.
    Servicing & maintenance - do or go for the service as prescribed to get best performance.

  • No matter what you face xpulse has got your back!

    1 year ago


    Ravi Gupta

    The buying experience was brilliant; I took three test drives of xpulse 4v and 2 test drives of xpulse bs6 before making my decision. All the test drives were from the same store, and the staff was helpful. On the day of purchase, the store took care of everything and made the process super fast and easy. They gave me bike within 2 hours, including all the documentation time.
    It's been 1 month since i bought this bike, and i have ridden it for more than 1900km within a month. I do enough touring usually but haven't got the chance for proper touring on xpulse. However, I have driven it for around 150-200 km in a day thrice, and trust me; it is capable. Talking about the seat, I don't like it much and got it replaced on day 1 from khajanchi, karol bagh. Spent the purchase day in karol bagh only; got backrest and top rack installed, got seat cushiony, added auxiliary light (stock headlight is not so useful in dark), and changed leg guards. I could not find a decent windshield, and that is necessary, which i am still looking for. After the seat change, seat height has increased by around half a centimeter, and i am 5'7". Seat height is actually not an issue once you are comfortable on it.
    This bike glides through rough terrain; i sometimes go to rough terrains of sonepat just to enjoy it. It moves like a breeze; however, I feel handlebars could have been a bit higher. Will get a higher handlebar soon as handlebar risers are not easily available.
    Xpusle 4v is pretty; you will know it when you see how people look at it. In almost every parking, people are staring at it, and i get a lot of questions about the bike. This bike is brilliantly capable off-road; however, highway performance could have been better. Traffic maneuvering is quite easy, but I sometimes feel wobble at high speeds (above 115kmph). My 8 year old avenger 220 is way more stable at speeds over 115kmph (but that's obvious given its cruiser ergonomics). However, you can easily maintain a speed of 95-100 kmph constantly without feeling any significant vibration. Engine is refined and smooth, and gear ratios are lovely (can go 90+ in fourth gear, and you can pick up from 30 kmph from fifth gear). To be honest, I am pretty sure that I can do 800-1000 km in a day easily, given its overall performance and capabilities.
    Let me tell you about its mileage. Before the first service, I was getting easy mileage of 40 kmpl as I was not riding above 70kmph. Got my first service in the first week, and as soon as I started revving harder, the mileage dropped to 36kmpl. I think 36kmpl is fine, but my eight-year-old avenger still gives a constant mileage of 33kmpl (provided it's a bs3 bike).
    Maintenance of xpulse is not an issue; my first service cost me just inr 1110, which is majorly the cost of the full synthetic engine oil (as the first 5 services are free of labor charges). Xpulse has a warranty of 5 years or 70k km, whichever is earlier, and this is such a relief. This warranty covers all of the engine (all the major parts) and suspension. I go off-road tension-free knowing that I am covered.
    Now, i will make a quick pros and cons list.
    Pros:
    - value for money (every penny you spend on xpulse is always well spent)
    - great road presence
    - decent mileage (when driven at decent speeds)
    - refined engine
    - gear ratios
    - off-road capabilities
    - easy to maintain
    - 5 years warranty cover
    - brilliant service reach of hero
    - lightweight (makes off-roading breeze)
    Cons
    - headlamps (you would surely need auxiliary lights if roads do not have proper lighting)
    - inconsistent mileage (only if you hit the revs hard)
    - "slight" heating (can be felt in traffic situations)
    - no center stand (not a con for me but others might have a problem with this)
    - lightweight (can cause little inconvenience while carrying luggage on tours)
    Note: my rating is actually 4.5 stars as there is a little scope of improvement which can be addressed easily.

  • Awesome experience! suspension is love

    1 year ago


    Khanjan Das

    I sold my old 150cc 4valve bajaj discover with rear monoshock, which was giving me good experience with 60+ mileage and bought this xpulse 200 4valve. I do a daily 2 km commute to my workplace (mostly flat road) and on weekends I go for small riding trips with friends. So far the bike is pretty good in handling below 90 kmph and the economy is also good in between 35-40 kmpl. What I like the most about this bike is the wheels are so big in radius that small potholes and small speed breakers are not a thing anymore. Rumble strips, I don’t even look at them anymore. Suspensions are so good! the engine is refined compared to the old xpulse model which I rode last year from a friend of mine. Also one important thing, it has a kick start in case you wanna go to cold areas, or if u don’t use ur bike too often and it remains in the garage for several days, this saves you!

  • Off-road hero in budget

    2 years ago


    Divya Prakash

    Last time I had a very bad experience with the Bajaj pulsar rs 200 on Kathmandu trip. I almost crushed the bike from the lower side and then I came to know the difference between a racing bike and an adventure riding bike. My friend has a RE Himalayan but he suggested hero xpulse for myself. I drove Himalayan many times and got satisfied with the performance but never tried the xpulse ever, that's why I was a little bit confused. Finally, after so many test drives I bought a hero xpulse 200 4v.
    The design looks stylish and born for off-road. It's not a cruiser either but if you are not a speedster you won't regret it. It feels very smooth at the speed of 90 kmph on highways. Suspensions, seat and sitting position are comfortable. Brakes do fine. Compared with re Himalayan it has 20 percent lesser power and 45 percent lesser torque but power to weight ratios of both the bikes reach closer due to 20 percent lesser weight of xpulse. In real life when i go off road don't feel much difference between the two. 10 kmpl of extra mileage and 1 lac lesser price of hero xpulse 200 4v seems to be economic and budget-friendly.
    Pros.
    1- it is sturdier than other motorbikes of this price range.
    2- it feels powerful and torque is enough for mountainous or rocky terrains.
    3- upward exhaust is capable of going underwater deeper than re himalayan.
    4- fully digital meter with navigation and charging point.
    5- light weight of the bike provides a better and more effortless handling.
    6- one of the cheapest adventure riding motorbikes.
    7- spares and servicing costs are also cheaper than re.
    8- availability of spares and services is not a problem.
    Cons.
    1- top speed is not as good as re himalayan.
    2- it's felt lack of torque at low rpm.
    3- compared with re himalayan the handle bar is not so comfortable for riding the bike in a standing position.

  • An eye-candy that does all stuff while being pocket friendly. The hero xpulse 200 4v.

    2 years ago


    Adarsh M S

    Someone who's totally into sports tourers and power cruisers has chosen an off-roader to be his ride mate.
    I just got my xpulse 200 4v registered and delivered to me on my my birthday. I badly wanted this birthday to be damn special.
    Just like any common enthusiast I totally spent hours on youtube and forums like bikewale to see if xpulse would make me regret and all the doubts got kicked on its bottom when I twisted the throttle today.
    The initial pull is impressive! I got admit that, I have ridden my fazer 2012 - midnight special for about 15,000 kms and was looking for an upgrade over 250cc. I happened to choose the xpulse totally because of its practicality and price point. I didn't get disappointed with my first rev on this bike, brakes are adequate, power bank is enough for the city and occasional tours. I got say it out loud, everyone of us enter the bike hunt with things in mind like we're gonna hit ladakh in a week and race the laguna seca/ nürburgring in the next. But 99.9% of us ride the city and roads filled with gutters. For that I consider hero xpulse 200 4v to be a gem, although the seats are on the shorter side, it may take a toll on your rear if you're full figured like I am.
    The lights are claimed to be puny and useless, but surprisingly it is wonderful and more than adequate to me in the streets with no lights.
    The heat from the engine is there in a considerable amount, but yeah, the first service will make it manageable.
    The ride posture is very commanding and upright that you feel like a boss while riding it, the stance alone will steal a lotta glance from the people. I personally loved the aggressive updation on the stickers they've done with the 4v. Mine is a raid red and my baby cousin loves it.
    So, if you're in a budget, looking for a motorcycle that can go anywhere; if you wanna get a one that won't burn a hole in your pocket ; if you wanna make the heads turn, go for the xpulse 200 4v, i just rode 45 kms inside the city and the streets with a pillion and we both are going to sleep peacefully with nothing but the bare minimum of the body soreness that's gifted by the pollution and traffic.
    Lemme list out the pros and cons quickly so that, the someone who always want to cut to the chase can be helped with my review.
    Pros:
    1. The posture.
    2. Adequate power.
    3. Mileage.
    4. Looks.
    5. Maintenance cost.
    6. Vocal for the local
    7. Exhaust note (the screeching noise is loveable, mimics the latest duke 250 somewhere by a bit, but it's totally my personal opinion)
    8. Side stand engine cut off option (my friend's brand new apache 200 4v, just tell and broke its tank fairing - it showed neutral but when my niece pressed on the self start button, it moved and voila, bonk!!!)
    Let's get into the cons right away and please note that there's absolutely zero bias and no 'cutting some slack's' gonna happen here
    Cons:
    1. Gear position indicator (it irritates the living devil out of me)
    2. Seats (could have been better.
    3. Navigation is sloppy sometimes, as if it was my phone with bad network that caused it, but yeah again, it is not so great.
    4. Horn. (sounds sharp and sufficient but not upto my likeness. I'm a lover of the dual horn setups of pulsars, apaches and r15s. My fazer's horn is the same as the r15s and it is really good)
    And that is it guys, a review of my brand new hero xpulse 200 4v for your reference and i have totally answered my own questions up there as I have just got my bike, hence it is tested, experienced and written down neatly for all.
    For all's notice, I named my xpulse as x23. and it is the best ever gift I have gifted myself so far. 3 years ago, it was my used fazer - midnight special that still stands next to x23.

    That's my point of view
    Beginners should go for the xpulse 200 4v

    The bike look is stylish. Whenever you sit on the bike and turn on the ignition , you will feel , you are turning on your inner “biker” . It attracts people attention and gives you a special feeling.
    Performance wise - no doubt ride is smooth . You will not have to worry about the road condition ( on road / off road - city / rural , if you are riding this bike.
    Servicing & maintenance - do or go for the service as prescribed to get best performance.

  • No matter what you face xpulse has got your back!

    1 year ago


    Ravi Gupta

    The buying experience was brilliant; I took three test drives of xpulse 4v and 2 test drives of xpulse bs6 before making my decision. All the test drives were from the same store, and the staff was helpful. On the day of purchase, the store took care of everything and made the process super fast and easy. They gave me bike within 2 hours, including all the documentation time.
    It's been 1 month since i bought this bike, and i have ridden it for more than 1900km within a month. I do enough touring usually but haven't got the chance for proper touring on xpulse. However, I have driven it for around 150-200 km in a day thrice, and trust me; it is capable. Talking about the seat, I don't like it much and got it replaced on day 1 from khajanchi, karol bagh. Spent the purchase day in karol bagh only; got backrest and top rack installed, got seat cushiony, added auxiliary light (stock headlight is not so useful in dark), and changed leg guards. I could not find a decent windshield, and that is necessary, which i am still looking for. After the seat change, seat height has increased by around half a centimeter, and i am 5'7". Seat height is actually not an issue once you are comfortable on it.
    This bike glides through rough terrain; i sometimes go to rough terrains of sonepat just to enjoy it. It moves like a breeze; however, I feel handlebars could have been a bit higher. Will get a higher handlebar soon as handlebar risers are not easily available.
    Xpusle 4v is pretty; you will know it when you see how people look at it. In almost every parking, people are staring at it, and i get a lot of questions about the bike. This bike is brilliantly capable off-road; however, highway performance could have been better. Traffic maneuvering is quite easy, but I sometimes feel wobble at high speeds (above 115kmph). My 8 year old avenger 220 is way more stable at speeds over 115kmph (but that's obvious given its cruiser ergonomics). However, you can easily maintain a speed of 95-100 kmph constantly without feeling any significant vibration. Engine is refined and smooth, and gear ratios are lovely (can go 90+ in fourth gear, and you can pick up from 30 kmph from fifth gear). To be honest, I am pretty sure that I can do 800-1000 km in a day easily, given its overall performance and capabilities.
    Let me tell you about its mileage. Before the first service, I was getting easy mileage of 40 kmpl as I was not riding above 70kmph. Got my first service in the first week, and as soon as I started revving harder, the mileage dropped to 36kmpl. I think 36kmpl is fine, but my eight-year-old avenger still gives a constant mileage of 33kmpl (provided it's a bs3 bike).
    Maintenance of xpulse is not an issue; my first service cost me just inr 1110, which is majorly the cost of the full synthetic engine oil (as the first 5 services are free of labor charges). Xpulse has a warranty of 5 years or 70k km, whichever is earlier, and this is such a relief. This warranty covers all of the engine (all the major parts) and suspension. I go off-road tension-free knowing that I am covered.
    Now, i will make a quick pros and cons list.
    Pros:
    - value for money (every penny you spend on xpulse is always well spent)
    - great road presence
    - decent mileage (when driven at decent speeds)
    - refined engine
    - gear ratios
    - off-road capabilities
    - easy to maintain
    - 5 years warranty cover
    - brilliant service reach of hero
    - lightweight (makes off-roading breeze)
    Cons
    - headlamps (you would surely need auxiliary lights if roads do not have proper lighting)
    - inconsistent mileage (only if you hit the revs hard)
    - "slight" heating (can be felt in traffic situations)
    - no center stand (not a con for me but others might have a problem with this)
    - lightweight (can cause little inconvenience while carrying luggage on tours)
    Note: my rating is actually 4.5 stars as there is a little scope of improvement which can be addressed easily.

  • Awesome experience! suspension is love

    1 year ago


    Khanjan Das

    I sold my old 150cc 4valve bajaj discover with rear monoshock, which was giving me good experience with 60+ mileage and bought this xpulse 200 4valve. I do a daily 2 km commute to my workplace (mostly flat road) and on weekends I go for small riding trips with friends. So far the bike is pretty good in handling below 90 kmph and the economy is also good in between 35-40 kmpl. What I like the most about this bike is the wheels are so big in radius that small potholes and small speed breakers are not a thing anymore. Rumble strips, I don’t even look at them anymore. Suspensions are so good! the engine is refined compared to the old xpulse model which I rode last year from a friend of mine. Also one important thing, it has a kick start in case you wanna go to cold areas, or if u don’t use ur bike too often and it remains in the garage for several days, this saves you!

  • Off-road hero in budget

    2 years ago


    Divya Prakash

    Last time I had a very bad experience with the Bajaj pulsar rs 200 on Kathmandu trip. I almost crushed the bike from the lower side and then I came to know the difference between a racing bike and an adventure riding bike. My friend has a RE Himalayan but he suggested hero xpulse for myself. I drove Himalayan many times and got satisfied with the performance but never tried the xpulse ever, that's why I was a little bit confused. Finally, after so many test drives I bought a hero xpulse 200 4v.
    The design looks stylish and born for off-road. It's not a cruiser either but if you are not a speedster you won't regret it. It feels very smooth at the speed of 90 kmph on highways. Suspensions, seat and sitting position are comfortable. Brakes do fine. Compared with re Himalayan it has 20 percent lesser power and 45 percent lesser torque but power to weight ratios of both the bikes reach closer due to 20 percent lesser weight of xpulse. In real life when i go off road don't feel much difference between the two. 10 kmpl of extra mileage and 1 lac lesser price of hero xpulse 200 4v seems to be economic and budget-friendly.
    Pros.
    1- it is sturdier than other motorbikes of this price range.
    2- it feels powerful and torque is enough for mountainous or rocky terrains.
    3- upward exhaust is capable of going underwater deeper than re himalayan.
    4- fully digital meter with navigation and charging point.
    5- light weight of the bike provides a better and more effortless handling.
    6- one of the cheapest adventure riding motorbikes.
    7- spares and servicing costs are also cheaper than re.
    8- availability of spares and services is not a problem.
    Cons.
    1- top speed is not as good as re himalayan.
    2- it's felt lack of torque at low rpm.
    3- compared with re himalayan the handle bar is not so comfortable for riding the bike in a standing position.

  • An eye-candy that does all stuff while being pocket friendly. The hero xpulse 200 4v.

    2 years ago


    Adarsh M S

    Someone who's totally into sports tourers and power cruisers has chosen an off-roader to be his ride mate.
    I just got my xpulse 200 4v registered and delivered to me on my my birthday. I badly wanted this birthday to be damn special.
    Just like any common enthusiast I totally spent hours on youtube and forums like bikewale to see if xpulse would make me regret and all the doubts got kicked on its bottom when I twisted the throttle today.
    The initial pull is impressive! I got admit that, I have ridden my fazer 2012 - midnight special for about 15,000 kms and was looking for an upgrade over 250cc. I happened to choose the xpulse totally because of its practicality and price point. I didn't get disappointed with my first rev on this bike, brakes are adequate, power bank is enough for the city and occasional tours. I got say it out loud, everyone of us enter the bike hunt with things in mind like we're gonna hit ladakh in a week and race the laguna seca/ nürburgring in the next. But 99.9% of us ride the city and roads filled with gutters. For that I consider hero xpulse 200 4v to be a gem, although the seats are on the shorter side, it may take a toll on your rear if you're full figured like I am.
    The lights are claimed to be puny and useless, but surprisingly it is wonderful and more than adequate to me in the streets with no lights.
    The heat from the engine is there in a considerable amount, but yeah, the first service will make it manageable.
    The ride posture is very commanding and upright that you feel like a boss while riding it, the stance alone will steal a lotta glance from the people. I personally loved the aggressive updation on the stickers they've done with the 4v. Mine is a raid red and my baby cousin loves it.
    So, if you're in a budget, looking for a motorcycle that can go anywhere; if you wanna get a one that won't burn a hole in your pocket ; if you wanna make the heads turn, go for the xpulse 200 4v, i just rode 45 kms inside the city and the streets with a pillion and we both are going to sleep peacefully with nothing but the bare minimum of the body soreness that's gifted by the pollution and traffic.
    Lemme list out the pros and cons quickly so that, the someone who always want to cut to the chase can be helped with my review.
    Pros:
    1. The posture.
    2. Adequate power.
    3. Mileage.
    4. Looks.
    5. Maintenance cost.
    6. Vocal for the local
    7. Exhaust note (the screeching noise is loveable, mimics the latest duke 250 somewhere by a bit, but it's totally my personal opinion)
    8. Side stand engine cut off option (my friend's brand new apache 200 4v, just tell and broke its tank fairing - it showed neutral but when my niece pressed on the self start button, it moved and voila, bonk!!!)
    Let's get into the cons right away and please note that there's absolutely zero bias and no 'cutting some slack's' gonna happen here
    Cons:
    1. Gear position indicator (it irritates the living devil out of me)
    2. Seats (could have been better.
    3. Navigation is sloppy sometimes, as if it was my phone with bad network that caused it, but yeah again, it is not so great.
    4. Horn. (sounds sharp and sufficient but not upto my likeness. I'm a lover of the dual horn setups of pulsars, apaches and r15s. My fazer's horn is the same as the r15s and it is really good)
    And that is it guys, a review of my brand new hero xpulse 200 4v for your reference and i have totally answered my own questions up there as I have just got my bike, hence it is tested, experienced and written down neatly for all.
    For all's notice, I named my xpulse as x23. and it is the best ever gift I have gifted myself so far. 3 years ago, it was my used fazer - midnight special that still stands next to x23.

  • No response from hero moto corp.

    1 year ago


    Arun Kumar

    Very bad experience to buy this bike bcoz there is no good response from all staff of hero moto corp. Customer care service, and dealership services are very very poor. They only sell bikes after that If you face any problem with the bike no one will help you. Customer care never knows where is dealership is and who official of hero moto is working in that district from hero moto.
    So I really disappointed with the service of the total hero moto corp. Don't buy it bcoz it works like govt. Sector.

    I purchase Xpulse 200 4v [ 04.04.2022] in RP motors hero showroom Pollachi.  I rode my vehicle at 2rpm and 3rpm vehicle off and the vehicle ran missing. Last week I am visiting the service centre and telling about my problem but they are simply ignoring me and not responding to me. Very poor service, I will tell you about my problems in  6 months in Pollachi showroom. They told me to go to Coimbatore Sugana automobiles. When I go to the showroom in Coimbatore, the service team told me to wait 1 day, as I am waiting for one day. The team will be informed my technician will clean the head and valve. And the team told you your problem to solve. And I will take my bike and again the problem comes suddenly I reach out to Pollachi RP motors and they will tell bring the vehicle will rectify the problem, I go to the showroom and they will ask to give1 day time they will see the problem. When I go in the evening time they told me the vehicle is now ready. If we ask what is the problem in it, he told us to flash the ecm, they told us the complaint was rectified. I will take the vehicle again complaint has not been rectified. My nearby friends asked about my vehicle's performance for purchasing but now I am very disappointed with the hero brand. Kindly take action and rectify my problems do needed.

    Suraj Singh

    I just bought the bike a week ago. Since then am riding this bike for every purpose
    I will give 4.5 out of 5 rating to the looks and 9 out of 10 to the performance
    People do ask me for the pricing of bike. This machine seeks public attention
    Thus this bike is a low maintenance bike.
    Pros :- 1. Braking
    2. Mileage
    3. Budget friendly
    4. Power is good
    5. Instrument clusters are easy to use
    6. Sound of the machine
    7. Seat height is good enough for 5.6" people
    And many more etc.
    Cons :- 1. Company should given 6th gear
    2. Performance is on the Top
    3. Headlight is not that much powerful
    That's my point of view
    Beginners should go for the xpulse 200 4v

I think 36kmpl is fine, but my eight-year-old avenger still gives a constant mileage of 33kmpl (provided it's a bs3 bike).
    Maintenance of xpulse is not an issue; my first service cost me just inr 1110, which is majorly the cost of the full synthetic engine oil (as the first 5 services are free of labor charges). Xpulse has a warranty of 5 years or 70k km, whichever is earlier, and this is such a relief. This warranty covers all of the engine (all the major parts) and suspension. I go off-road tension-free knowing that I am covered.
    Now, i will make a quick pros and cons list.
    Pros:
    - value for money (every penny you spend on xpulse is always well spent)
    - great road presence
    - decent mileage (when driven at decent speeds)
    - refined engine
    - gear ratios
    - off-road capabilities
    - easy to maintain
    - 5 years warranty cover
    - brilliant service reach of hero
    - lightweight (makes off-roading breeze)
    Cons
    - headlamps (you would surely need auxiliary lights if roads do not have proper lighting)
    - inconsistent mileage (only if you hit the revs hard)
    - "slight" heating (can be felt in traffic situations)
    - no center stand (not a con for me but others might have a problem with this)
    - lightweight (can cause little inconvenience while carrying luggage on tours)
    Note: my rating is actually 4.5 stars as there is a little scope of improvement which can be addressed easily.

    I sold my old 150cc 4valve bajaj discover with rear monoshock, which was giving me good experience with 60+ mileage and bought this xpulse 200 4valve. I do a daily 2 km commute to my workplace (mostly flat road) and on weekends I go for small riding trips with friends. So far the bike is pretty good in handling below 90 kmph and the economy is also good in between 35-40 kmpl. What I like the most about this bike is the wheels are so big in radius that small potholes and small speed breakers are not a thing anymore. Rumble strips, I don’t even look at them anymore. Suspensions are so good! the engine is refined compared to the old xpulse model which I rode last year from a friend of mine. Also one important thing, it has a kick start in case you wanna go to cold areas, or if u don’t use ur bike too often and it remains in the garage for several days, this saves you!
