Hero Xtreme 200S, Xpulse 200T to be launched in August
Hero MotorCorp will launch its BS6-compliant Xtreme 200S and Xpulse 200T in India in August, according to HT Auto. Both the motorcycles are expected to retain the design of their respective BS4 models but pack an all-LED lighting setup and a digital instrument cluster. As for the pocket-pinch, they are tipped to cost around Rs. 5,000 more than their BS4 counterparts. Here's our roundup.
The BS6-compliant Hero Xtreme 200S is expected to retain the fully-faired design of its BS4 counterpart. It should also get a sloping fuel tank, a stepped-up seat, and a raised windshield. The BS6 Xpulse 200T should feature a semi-faired look with a rounded headlamp and updated body graphics. Both the bikes should also come with an all-LED lighting setup and a fully-digital instrument console.
The Xtreme 200S is expected to draw power from a BS6-compliant 199.6cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine. The power figures of the motor are not known as of now but in the BS4 state, it delivered 17.8hp/17Nm. The Xpulse 200T should be powered by a 199cc oil-cooled engine which will produce 17.5hp/16.5Nm. Transmission duties on both the tourers should be handled by a 5-speed gearbox.
The Xtreme 200S and Xpulse 200T will offer disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels along with single-channel ABS for improved braking efficiency. To handle suspension duties, both the motorcycles should offer telescopic forks with anti-friction bush at the front side and a 7-step rider-adjustable mono-shock unit on the rear end.
The BS6-compliant Hero Xtreme 200S and Xpulse 200T are expected to carry a premium of around Rs. 5,000 over their BS4-specific counterparts, which are priced at Rs. 99,400 and Rs. 94,000, respectively.
