Premium bikes and scooter segment is the current happening space in India where every other automaker wants to pitch in and grab a significant market share. Hero MotoCorp is no different. It recently unveiled the Xtreme 200R and now at the 2018 Auto Expo in Delhi, has unveiled the production-ready XPulse off-roader bike, its second offering in the premium segment.

The concept of the XPulse was first showcased at the 2017 EICMA in Milan. The dual-purpose bike will come powered by the same 200cc mill we recently saw in the Xtreme 200R, however with the addition of fuel-injection (FI) technology. Mated to a 5-speed gearbox, the 200cc single-cylinder motor makes 18.4 PS of power and 17.1 Nm of torque. The bike gets first-in-class Turn-by-Turn Navigation, dual-purpose tyres, fly screen, high-set front mudguard, fully-digital instrument cluster, full-LED headlamps, spoked wheels, luggage rack and knuckle guards.

Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock (with 170 mm of travel) at the rear. Disc brakes at both the ends will take care of anchorage and single-channel ABS will be offered as well. Other highlights of the XPulse are the 21-inch front and an 18-inch wheel at the rear and 220 mm ground clearance.
