The Impulse was Hero’s first take in the adventure motorcycle segment, which turned out to be a motorcycle that was introduced in the market ahead of its time. Now, as the market has caught on to the adventure touring bug, Hero has given it a second go, launching the successor of the Impulse in the form of the XPulse 200. The company had first unveiled the motorcycle at the 2017 EICMA Show in Italy. The XPulse 200 carries forward some of the legacy of the Impulse, but it is more accessible and more purposeful.
True to its adventurous nature, the XPulse 200 is equipped with spoke-wheels, high-rise front mudguard, fork gaiters, bash plate, dual-purpose tyres and an upswept exhaust. Suspension duties are carried out by telescopic units on the front with 190mm of travel and 10-step adjustable monoshock at the rear with 170mm of travel. The motorcycle has a seat height of 825mm and a high ground clearance of 220mm. For braking, the XPulse 200 employs disc brakes on both ends along with a single-channel ABS. On the tech front, the motorcycle incorporates a full-LED headlamp and a digital instrument cluster complete with Bluetooth connectivity for navigation and call alerts.
Powering the XPulse 200 is a 200cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine borrowed from the Xtreme 200R. This unit produces 18.4bhp and 17.1Nm of torque and comes mated to a five-speed gearbox with revised gearing. It gets a 14-litre fuel tank capacity.
