In the latest development, the upcoming bike has been spotted testing on the roads, revealing some of its details. The Xpulse 200 4V will come with a 4-valve system and a new paint scheme. It will run on the same 199.6cc engine. Here's our roundup.
It will sport a Bluetooth-enabled LCD console
The Hero Xpulse 200 4V will feature an updated paint job, a sculpted fuel tank with a "4-valve" sticker, a single-piece seat, a pillion grab rail, and an upswept exhaust. It will also house an LCD instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity, an LED headlight, and an LED taillight. The motorcycle will ride on 21-inch front and 18-inch rear spoked wheels.
Transmission duties will be handled by a 5-speed gearbox
The Hero Xpulse 200 4V will be fueled by the same 199.6cc engine that is present in the current model. It generates 17.8hp/16.45Nm and comes linked to a 5-speed gearbox. However, a better output is expected on the 4V version.
Single-channel ABS will be offered for safety
As for the rider's safety, the Hero Xpulse 200 4V will likely be equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels along with single-channel ABS for improved handling.
