The Hero Xpulse 200T 4V adventure bike is a road-biased tourer version of the Xpulse 200 4V.
The Hero Xpulse 200T, which shares the 4-valve engine with the Xpulse 200 4V, is back in the Indian market. It costs Rs 1,036 more than the Xpulse 200T 2V, which was discontinued, and gets several enhancements to support the price hike. Its price is Rs 1,25,726 (ex-showroom Mumbai).
Hero Xpulse 200T 4V – New Style
The redesigned neo-retro styling of the new XPulse 200T gives it a new identity. The proportions of the motorcycle have been improved by lowering the circular LED headlamp by 20 mm with the integrated LED DRL ring. Other attractive features include a color-coded flyscreen up front, fork gaiters, and a tubular grab rail.
Hero Xpulse 200T 4V – Features and Specs
The Hero Xpulse 200T 4V gets a fully digital LCD instrument cluster, smartphone connectivity, call notification, and turn-by-turn navigation as standard features. A side-stand engine cut-off button, a gear position indicator, and an under-seat USB charger are some additional creature comforts.
In terms of hardware, the front suspension consists of 37 mm telescopic forks, while the rear suspension consists of a 7-step adjustable mono-shock. 276mm front and 220mm rear discs, paired with single-channel ABS, provide anchorage. The bike rides on 100/80-17 tubeless front tires and 130/70-R17 tubeless rear tires on cast alloy wheels measuring 17 inches in diameter at both ends.
A fresh color scheme with three attractive paint jobs – Matte Shield Gold, Sports Red, and Funk Lime Yellow- also benefits the touring motorcycle. All three available color combinations complement the cool body graphics that enhance its contemporary urban look.
The power plant gets a new 4-valve head, which is the most significant upgrade. The result is an increase of 0.7 bhp and 0.2 Nm, giving the 199.6cc air-and-oil-cooled engine 18.8 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and 17.3 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. A five-speed gearbox is mated to the motor.

According to Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Growth Officer (CGO) of Hero bikes, “The XPulse has established a strong position among motorcycling enthusiasts in India, and we are confident that this trend will further strengthen with the launch of the new Hero XPulse 200T 4V. The manufacturer says, “Hero XPulse 200T 4V, bold, youthful, and retro design, comes in a completely new avatar.”
Given its price and engine output, the Xpulse 200T 4V can be compared to TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, Honda Hornet 2.0, and Bajaj Pulsar NS200, even though it doesn’t have any direct competitors in its market.
