Bookings to commence from July 22
Hero MotoCorp launches the Xpulse 200 4V rally edition at Rs 1.52 lakh. This limited edition can be booked from July 22 onwards and only on their online sales platform. This model is bound to attract potential off-road enthusiasts as it packs some vital enhancements for the terrain filled with technical challenges.
The limited edition model will come with a rally code livery, red painted cylinder head, extended gear lever and longer side stand. Off-road dynamics-focused bits include the taller and fully adjustable front suspension with a plethora of suspension travel at 250mm and a ten-step adjustable rear mono shock with 220mm of travel resulting in an increased ground clearance of 270mm. The wheelbase has increased by 16mm and trail length by 2mm, all these numbers giving an edge over its currently retailed model.
Other features such as a fully digital LCD instrument cluster with smartphone connectivity and call alerts, Turn-by-Turn navigation, gear indicator, eco mode and two trip metres and single-channel ABS are same as the outgoing model.
Powered by the same four-valve single overhead cam engine, the power and torque figures stand at 19.1PS and 17.35Nm while mated to a 5-speed gearbox. For better heat management, it comes with a seven-fin oil cooler.
With this, Hero expands its premium motorcycle portfolio and is also carving a niche in the value-for-money off-road motorcycle market.
