Hero XPulse 200T Highlights
Along with the XPulse 200, Hero has also launched its road-biased cousin, the XPulse 200T, at Rs 94,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). Being a touring motorcycle, it ditches all the off-road centric elements such as a front beak, sump guard, knuckle guards and a high-mounted exhaust. Instead, gets comfier ergonomics, which would help the rider during long distance trips.
It is powered by the same engine as the XPulse 200. The 199.6cc single cylinder air-cooled engine pumps out 18.4PS of power at 8,000rpm and 17.1Nm of torque at 6,500rpm and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. In terms of suspension, it gets telescopic forks at the front and a preload adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking hardware consists of disc brakes at both ends and single-channel ABS is offered as standard.
The XPulse 200T features an all-LED headlamp, a fully digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation.

Hero XPulse 200T Expert Review
Hero MotoCorp has now got four motorcycles based on the same 200cc engine. A sporty commuter in the form of the Xtreme 200R, a full-faired option with the Xtreme 200S, the XPulse 200, a hardcore off-roading bike for beginners, and finally a road-biased tourer called the XPulse 200T.
Design and Features
One look at the XPulse 200T and you can tell that the design is a bit strange. Hero claims that it’s supposed to be retro, but I’m still a bit unsure of whether the 200T actually manages to pull that look off. You find the same 15-litre fuel tank of the XPulse 200 but the side panels are styled differently. It does miss out on those off-roady bits like the large front fender, spoke rims and knobby tyres. Instead, you get the same wheel setup as the one found on the Xtreme 200R. There is no aluminium bash-plate as you would not venture out into the wild with this bike. Instead, it gets a normal plastic one. Overall, the XPulse 200T’s stance feels a bit disproportionate, and it doesn’t do enough to immediately turn heads.
The overall fit and finish levels have improved since the last time we tested one of Hero’s 200cc motorcycles - the Xtreme 200R, even though this XPulse variant shares quite a few things with the 200R. The positioning of the choke knob continues to look a bit out of place, but we had no further complaints with regards to switchgear location, or quality for that matter.
Braking and Handling
The XPulse 200T rides quite well for a tourer. The pliant suspension setup manages to soak in slow speed bumps. If you do encounter bigger bumps, the rear end does tend to kick back. Whether this can be solved by finding a better preload setting, or whether it has more to do with the rebound tuning, shall have to be tackled in our proper road test.
Given that this bike is meant to do long distance highway riding, it comes with a wide rake and long(ish) wheelbase. So it’s not really meant to feel corner happy, flicking from one side to the other through a series of bends at speed. But be gentle with it, and don’t push it too hard, and the 200T manages to hold a clean line through the corners. Things feel much better when you bring the speeds down even more. In the urban environment, it is surprisingly light on its feet and is able to dart through slow moving traffic with relative ease.
Coming to a halt quickly is not a problem for the 200T. It carries the same brake setup found on the Xtreme 200R, along with single channel ABS. Even though it does not have the petal discs, the 200T manages to slow down better than the XPulse 200 and also, I am going to stick my neck out for this, the Xtreme 200R. But much like the Xtreme, this bike too lacks lever feel.
