New spy shots reveal the bikes’ instrument console and the possibility of them sporting electronic aids

Few days after their first set of spy shots surfaced on the Internet, the Hero XPulse 400 and the Xtreme 400S have been spied together at Leh yet again. This time around though, there are clearer pictures of both 400cc bikes.

From what can be seen, the XPulse 400 gets proper ADV styling with a quarter fairing and a tall visor. It can be seen rolling on wire-spoked wheels which we suspect could be the 21- and 17-inch setup, similar to the one found on the Hero XPulse 200. The large fuel tank is likely to hold 15 to 17 litres of petrol.


The Xtreme 400S, on the other hand, gets a sporty design with a fully faired front. The fuel tank looks rather big and is likely to hold 15 litres of petrol, which would make it a touring-friendly bike. But, it does have the raised clip-on handlebar like that of a sports tourer.

With the clearer set of pictures, it is certain that the bikes are to get a liquid-cooled engine likely displacing around 400cc and we hope to know more about their specifications and figures soon.


Even the trellis frame of the test mules can be seen clearly. While the XPulse 400 features a USD fork, the Xtreme 400S makes do with a telescopic fork. At the rear, both get a monoshock. In terms of braking, both bikes get petal discs at both ends and the Xtreme 400S can be seen with axial callipers.


The XPulse 400 can be seen flaunting a fully digital instrument cluster and a switch cube on the handlebar, suggesting that the ADV could feature some electronics like switchable ABS and traction control. 

We can expect Hero to unveil the prototypes of the spied bikes later this year at the EICMA show. The Hero XPulse 400 will take the fight to the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 in the mid-capacity ADV segment. The Xtreme 400S, on the other hand, will take on the likes of the TVS Apache RR 310, BMW G 310 RR and KTM RC 390.
