Hero MotoCorp is readying an update for the road-biased variant of its XPulse motorcycle, the 200T. An image of the motorcycle reportedly participating in a television commercial shoot has emerged online which reveals some of the cosmetic updates to the motorcycle. As per the image, the headlamp appears to have been repositioned, now sitting a little lower than on the current model with a body-coloured visor now sitting above it. Additionally, the front fork now gets gaiters while the lower section now features a darker finish as against silver on the current model. The alloy wheels though appear to remain unchanged.
Compared to the current model (pictured), the updated bike seems to get more blacked-out components and gaiters on the front fork.
Compared to the current model, the design updates seen in the image seems to add more visual mass to the bike up front. A closer look also reveals a black finish to the exhaust as well.
More importantly though, the updated Hero XPulse 200T is likely to get the four-valve engine of the XPulse 200 4V. The 199.6 cc, single-cylinder, four-valve engine makes 18.8 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 17.35 Nm at 6,500 rpm. Like its sibling, the XPulse 200T may also get changed gearing, with a bigger rear sprocket.
Expect a slight bump in pricing at the time of launch of the updated XPulse 200T with the current model priced at Rs 1.24 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
