Since its launch in May, the Hero XPulse 200 has been selling quite well compared to its immediate competition, the Royal Enfield Himalayan. In the month of July, Hero sold 2,530 units of the XPulse 200 while Royal Enfield sold 1,619 units of the Himalayan. In June, Hero sold 2,674 units of the Xpulse 200 while Royal Enfield sold 1,223 units of the Himalayan. That means the Hero XPulse 200 had sold more than twice the number of Himalayans at that time.
While the good sales number of the XPulse 200 can be partially chalked down to its newness, a major reason would be its low retail price. At Rs 97,000 for the carb variant and Rs 1.05 lakh for the FI variant, the XPulse 200 is the most affordable adventure bike you can buy in India. It is also around Rs 76,000 more affordable than the Himalayan. Another reason is that enthusiasts who have been waiting for a more powerful Hero Impulse now finally has an option in the form of the XPulse 200.
