Hero Xpulse 200T facelift spotted in full in a new dual-tone green and grey shade, gets a lot of changes
The upcoming Hero Xpulse 200T facelift has been finally revealed in full ahead of launch in a brand new dual-tone Matte Green and Grey shade. The bike looks quite attractive and the launch could take place very anytime soon.
The biggest change is the addition of a new body-coloured headlight flyscreen and chunky fork boots. Both not only render a sporty look upfront but also offer a big bike feel. The front crash guards get a different design.
The areas finished in Green get Grey graphics intruding inside same as Red. The graphics denote an ‘X’ shape. The front mudguard gets body colour while the front petal disc, indicators, and the headlight are a direct lift from the outgoing model.
The exhaust muffler gets a Grey-finished heat shield while the pipe is either in Dark Grey or Gold based on the colour chosen. The engine head gets a contrast colour like the outgoing model.
The rear features a conventional grab handle which somewhat doesn’t gel well with the beautiful-looking front. The engine guard is quite big and covers the exhaust in 1 of the revealed pictures.
The facelifted version is expected to carry forward the existing 200 cc oil-cooled powertrain that churns out 17.8 HP at 8500 RPM and 16.15 Nm at 6500 RPM, mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The bike sits on a diamond frame.
The outgoing model features 37 mm shocks upfront with 276 mm disc brake. At the rear, there’s a monshock and a 220 mm disc. The seat height is 800 mm while the ground clearance is 178 mm. The kerb weight is 154 kg.
When launched, the new Xpulse 200T will compete against the likes of the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, Bajaj Pulsar N250, Yamaha FZ25, etc.
