Is this the Hero MotoCorp Xpulse 210 spotted on road tests?

Written by News Team

Hero MotoCorp, the two-wheeler giant, has been caught testing the awaited next-generation version of its adventure-focused Xpulse 200 4V motorcycle, and this time, it seems like the real deal. The spy shots reveal a bike that’s shedding its camouflage, possibly hinting at an imminent official launch. The new motorcycle is expected to be dubbed as Xpulse 210.

Xpulse 210 – What to Expect?

The headline change for the Xpulse is a beefier power mill, with the current 199 cc engine making way for a more powerful 210 cc powerhouse. The new Karizma XMR also sports the same motor. This liquid-cooled engine will be tailored for the Xpulse and promises low-end torque, which is a must-have for any adventure bike to earn it’s off-road credentials. In the Karizma, this engine kicks out 25.15 bhp and 20.4 Nm, mated to a six-speed gearbox.

Details about other modifications remain elusive at this point. However, it wouldn’t be surprising if Hero decides to sprinkle in some subtle cosmetic updates, fresh color options, and perhaps a few extra features. We can already see that there is a new headlamp on the test bike with the signature H-shaped DRL. The foundational hardware setup, including the 21-inch front and 18-inch rear spoke wheels paired with a long-travel suspension, might stay intact. The Xpulse’s light 159 kg weight, ground clearance towering at 220 mm, and minimalist bodywork collectively establish it as an excellent choice for novice off-road enthusiasts.

Launch Timeline?

Hero is planning a launch on 23rd January for their new motorcycle, the Mavrick 440. The latest we can expect the Xpulse 210 to be revealed is in the following month. As we eagerly await more revelations on the launch of the upcoming Hero Xpulse 210, one thing seems certain—it’s going to demand a slightly higher price tag compared to its predecessor, the Xpulse 200 4V, currently priced at ₹1.46 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Xpulse 210 will have no direct rival as such, but where ADV motorcycles are concerned, the closest competition will be the KTM Adventure 250 which is priced much higher than what we expect the Xpulse 210 to be priced at.
