The four-valve heart of this XPulse promises to deliver better-touring mannerisms. Finally, the Hero XPulse 200T 4V has been revealed after months of teasers and spy shots. Four-valve powerplants should provide a superior touring experience with this road-focused version of the XPulse 200 4V.
Do you know what the price is? What Are Its Rivals?
A new motorcycle version of Hero MotoCorp’s XPulse 200T 4V was launched today, priced at Rs 1,25,726 (ex-showroom, Mumbai). There is a premium of only Rs 1,036 between the Hero XPulse 200T 4V and the Hero XPulse 200T 2V (ex-showroom Mumbai). There is a discount of Rs 11,770 when comparing this bike to the Hero XPulse 200 4V.
There are a few 200cc bikes that are fairly affordable and can compete against the XPulse 200T 4V, such as the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, the Bajaj Pulsar NS200, and the Honda Hornet 2.0. While it doesn’t have the same performance as the Apache RTR 200 4V or Pulsar NS200, it does exist in enough substance to compete against the Hornet 2.0.
What is New in Hero XPulse 200T 4V?
The majority of the changes revolve around the engine’s 199.6cc air/oil-cooled four-valve head, similar to its off-road sibling. Despite the change in power output, the torque output remains the same at 17.3Nm at 6500rpm and 19.1PS at 8500rpm.
Now you can choose from three funkier colours – Sports Red, Matt Funk Lime Yellow, and Matt Shield Gold – that have loud graphics, clearly conveying a youthful impression. As well as lowering the LED headlight, installing body-colored visors, using fork gaiters, redesigning the belly pan and adding simple grabrails, the motorcycle makes for a substantial upgrade over its two-valve counterpart.
The mono-shock unit has seven steps of adjustment, and the 37mm front forks handle suspension duties. The bike has two disc brakes: 276mm at the front and 220mm at the rear, providing riders with a maximum level of safety.
What is Unchanged?
A 17-inch alloy wheel is mounted on the bike, and road tyres cover the 17-inch wheels. This model is available with a digital display instrument cluster, which is equipped with smartphone connectivity and call alerts, turn-by-turn navigation, USB charging ports under the seat, and a gear indicator.

For braking, there are petal disc brakes at both ends, 276mm in front and 220mm at the rear. The underpinnings remain the same, including a 37mm telescopic fork, seven-step preload adjustable mono-shock suspension, and 276mm front and 220mm rear petal disc brakes.
JPR BIKERS SAYS:
Finally, the Hero XPulse 200T 4V comes with a welcome breath of fresh air, without the need to pay a significant premium, so it’s a good value for money. Furthermore, because the Hero XPulse 200T 4V remains an affordable offering in the 200cc segment, and now comes with a four-valve engine, the bike’s case itself seems to be quite solid.
A dealership of Hero MotoCorp should be able to sell this motorcycle to interested customers.
