Hero Xpulse 200 4V Rally Edition Launched In India; Priced At Rs 1.52 Lakh


Hero has launched a new limited edition Xpulse 200 4V Rally Edition in India priced at Rs 1.52 lakh (ex-showroom). Compared to the standard Xpulse 200 4V, the Rally Edition is dearer by about Rs 16,000 with the additional cost getting you some cosmetic and mechanical upgrades. The Rally Edition borrows some components from the recently introduced Rally Kit for the Xpulse 4V along with receiving a rally-inspired graphic scheme to further stand out from the standard motorcycle.

Commenting on the launch, Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Growth Officer (CGO), Hero MotoCorp said, “Hero Xpulse has been an icon for years and has been leading in the adventure segment which has grown three times in the past three years. Known for offering an unmatched experience, Hero Xpulse still continues to inspire off-roading enthusiasts with unlimited adrenaline rush. Proudly inheriting the true Hero MotoSports DNA, the limited edition Xpulse 200 4V Rally Edition is loaded with cutting-edge features and is engineered to deliver outstanding performance.

Rally Edition gets unique livery, long travel suspension, increased ground clearance and a higher set handlebar.

Focusing on the upgrades, the Rally Edition gets the long-travel fully-adjustable 250 mm front fork and 220 mm rear mono shock, handlebar risers and the increased ride height from the optional Rally Kit package. The bike also gets additional cosmetic changes such as the rally-inspired graphics, painted cylinder head and Indian enduro and off-road motorcycle racer C.S. Santosh’s signature on the fuel tank.

The Rally Edition though misses out on the Maxxis off-road centric tyres and taller seat from the Rally Kit. It instead gets the standard Xpulse seat and dual-purpose tyres.
