    I proudly an owner of 200.It's good commuter bike and best choice for Indian road. I brought carb edition on aug 2019. Completed 2 service. I will tell you my 3 month experience about the bike. Pros, good design. Better handling. Most affordable budget 200cc bike in the market. Best off-road bike compare with himalayan very lightweight so we can easily handle. Service cost is very cheap.Advanced digital meter.Low maintenance service cost around 400-500 each service.Build quality is very good.Have 5 year warranty so no worry about that. Good cornering ability. Good ground clearance.Suitable to short and tall peoples.No worry about potholes . Headlight visibility is poor.Seat comfort is not up to mark.Abs is very sensitive so sometimes break will hard.In my viewpoint it's best for city ride, commuter usage and compare with himalayan . If you looking for touring himalayan is best because it's seat comfort is far better than now hero introduce after market seat for touring. Got 44kmpl mileage. Now awarded Indian motor cycle of the year 2020. I think my review is helpful for everyone. Thanks for everyone to read my review

    Hero xpulse 200, was the best choice made by our family. Buying the bike was one level and services are extremely different. We walked in, choose the bike & colour. We walked in again made payment and rode out. That simple!. Xpulse is a very reliable and most comfortable bike ever felt . As I am tall guy it fells comfortable to sit upright and ride it . And guess what happens when i see a complete off-road I stand and feel the bike. Yes, you can sit and drive comfortably , but I'm adventurous and I love to feel the bike when I ride it. When you cross any patches and damaged road you will not feel anything but the smooth seat under your bums. Talking of look best ever made, performance is marvelous(never lets you down). Any guy with pocket money can maintain this bike and as well servicing is cheaper but quality in everything. Pros : cheap, easy to maintain, comfortable to ride,( all the fun in the world ) cons : short people I'm sorry, elders can't fell comfortable only for youth.

    The bike for the people who can't afford the high range off road bike. Top speed is 131 kmph, breaking is better, suspension is best, digital meter looks amazing with so many features. Fuel efficiency is also very good my bike give me 45+ kmpl of mileage. Seats are absolutely good. Company should make the tire tubeless.

    Very uncomfortable for pillion rider. Seat should be little longer. There are less accessories compared to other bikes in this price range.

    Bike is good, but the engine gets hot quickly. Its good for long rides, and has comfortable seating position. Power is enough for those who are switching from 150cc to 200cc. Can easily cruise at 80-90 km/h. Overall good for Indian roads. Headlight illumination is not enough and also seat is quite stiff for long rides.

    about the xpulse: It is a darn good looking bike. Not many will disagree with this. The bike looks good in all colour more so in pearl white (fi) and red (carb).It is more powerful than the hero impulse 150.The power i felt was almost similar to my sf. Aggressively priced At rs 98,000 ex-showroom it is priced very well. Handling is pretty decent in traffic. Considering the sf i own and the avenger we decided against. The bike just glides over the uneven surfaces and the potholes. You also sit taller than the other bikes and more often than not you’ll find you handle sailing smoothly over the handles of the other bikes. Fuel economy is pretty good too. At around 40–42 kmpl (lesser than sf which gives me close to 50 kmpl) it is not bad for a 200 cc bike. Ground clearance. Not only is this bike tall with good ground clearance but also it was smart of hero to do away with the center stand. In an himalayan, this center stand at times hit the uneven surface. Adjust to suspension. You are allowed a manual 10 point suspension adjustment. This is like a cherry on top of the icing. The digital console is quite elaborate. It gives you a lot of readings like the rpm, gear, speed (of course), date, time, stand, fuel, abs. Hero has also added something called as the gps which is little tacky to understand. So do not completely depend on this feature as its still in early stage of development. But overall this console is likeable and readable. Sf here has a slight edge here though. The japs have tech on their side. Areas of improvements. Headlights: These are round and led lamps. Just like many factory fitted hl these aren’t bright enough. Moreover, the focus is so close to the mudguard that you end up illuminating the mudguard and not the road. Almost 30 % light is blocked by the placement. Seating and ergonomics. The seat is narrow, i felt. After 30 mins of riding my bottoms starting asking me questions. Then again, the seats of my sf are wider. Also my wife was not dissatisfied with the seat arrangement. Standing position. Being an offroader and also consider the condition of the roads due to the metro project, there are stretched of roads where you may prefer standing. Unlike the himalayan, you may have to bend slightly ahead. No issues for smaller distance though. Something strange. I failed to understand why they had to cut the pipe like this to accommodate the exhaust. Hero could’ve definitely done better than this. To sum it all up, i like my sf more. But then again, this was a gift to my wife and she liked it.. Sorry loved it (end of the story). She selected it over the apache 160, avenger 160, hero xtreme 200 s, yamaha fzs, honda hornet. This was after seeing test riding and the attitude of the sales rep at the dealership. In conclusion, the hero xpulse is a great bike which is also friendly on the pockets. I got it for ~ rs1,22,000 onroad (with 5 years od + tp insurance along with rider legal liability).It handles well in traffic and will bring you a smile on your face. So if you’re looking for an offroader but also intend to use it on your daily commute to work then you should go for it. Similarly, if you are looking for a daily commuter and would love to have something extra, then as well you can definitely try it. You may end up taking it home. Coming from the stables of the hero, my assumption is that this stallion’s maintenance will be easier (mine is carb). It will be less expensive and spares would be less costly too. Let me know if you need any more information. Feel free to share and help those who may need it. I have faced a few issues with the abs and the engine. The abs malfunctions and the engine stalls and restarts during a ride. I've brought this to the notice of the service team. The abs component was changed on sunday the 14th of june 2020. The engine cutoff issue also was looked into. It appears to be working fine today.

    *this review contains point wise good and bad bits of the bike instead of brief explanations which helps in quick reading and knowing the bike in short span Good things of the xpulse 200:-1) suspension setup and rugged nature of the bike - if good suspension setup is your high priority or your municipality does not maintain the roads well, buy this bike eyes closed.2) unique looking motorcycle - the bike's dirt/mx bike like styling and the beak surely grabs attention of lot of people when you are out on the road or the bike is just standing in the parking lot. If you like being exclusive and different from the crowd, get this bike.3) cheap & easy to maintain - the maintenance and servicing of the bike is very cheap considering its a 200cc, rs. 1.3lakh bike. (1st servicing costed me just rs.450 which is nearly similar to my tvs jupiter, the bike returns around 38-43 kmpl average in mix conditions, oem spare parts are cheap and of good quality, being a hero motorcycle spare parts are easily available). If you want a bike which has good performance but also needs to be cheap to own, buy this bike.4) all rounder ability - this bike is a complete package for those who want a bike which can be comfortable for commuting within the city as well as it is comfortable on highways rides with decent performance.5) the xpulse 200 is a bike which boasts simple automotive engineering which keeps away the huge repair bills, increases the scope of simple maintenance diy's, and also helps it to be modification friendly especially for those who want to transform the into pure offroader unlike other 200cc bike which has very complex engineering behind them for eg) ktm's high compression engines.6) i have a really good experience with the build quality and long term reliability of hero motocorp's motorcycles. My family still has 30 year old and another 17 year old 100cc hero motorcycles which still are in great condition today.7)torque management on the bike is really good for offroading and city situations( pick up easily from 30kph in 5th gear without engine knocking) and is average for highway use, as it lacks top end. Bad things of the xpulse:-1) the abs system at the front is ultra sensitive or is not well calibrated, it engages when it should not normally. For eg) going over gravel or rumbbler strips.2)the rear break has strong bite which locks the wheel easily in panic or emergency situations.3) seat cushioning is too soft and starts to hurt your butt on long rides4) pillion seat is uncomfortable for long rides due to its lack of cushioning and small size 5) the hero's app and navigation system is buggy and works good just 2 out of 10 times6) initial batches of xpulse had rusting issue around the spokes, many owners got a free change of wheels after lot of complaints (still not an issue on my bike though)7) due to tall nature and huge 21inch front wheel of the bike, the bike is not as nimble as other 150-200cc bikes in the market. Additional notes:-1) my xpulse has done around 5500 kms and there have been no major problems2) 38-40 kmpl in city, 40-45 kmpl on highway3)abs issue is correctable at service center as per news sources.4) the grip in rainy season of the knobby type tires is inherently low, so bikes having theses type of tires suffer from low grip in monsoon.5) you can get used to the soft seat cushioning over the time.6) the bike cruises at 100kmph @ 7000 rpm and 80-90 kmph between 5500 and 6500 rpm7) top speed personally achieved is 118 kmph 8) this bike is not be liked by those who like high revving engines like ktm and bajaj's 200cc engine as their performance is way superior than xpulse, or those who are going to buy a bike based on pure engine performance.

    Good daily commuter and off reading is crazy and light , highway riding is little heavy because of its seating comfort and headlight is not up to the mark. Otherwise it is most affordable bike.
