Hero MotoCorp has finally revealed the launch date for the upcoming Xpulse series in India. The series, which includes the off-road spec Xpulse200 and the road-biased Xpulse200T (T for touring) will be launched in the country on May 1, 2019.
First showcased at the 2018 EICMA Motor Show held in Milan last year, the Hero Xpulse200 twins will be powered by the same engine from the Xtreme 200R. This 199cc, single cylinder, air cooled engine is capable of producing 18.4 hp and 17.1 Nm of torque on the Xtreme 200R, although the state of tune will be different for the Xpulse200 series. Apart from a different state of tune, the model will also feature a fuel injection instead of a carburettor.
