Hero Motocorp have pulled the plug on the Xpluse 200 2V. The website now displays the Xpulse 200 4V and the 200T. The Xpulse 200 2V used a 199.6-cc, two-valve, single-cylinder engine that made 17 hp and 16 Nm of peak torque. Although the Xpulse 200 has fully moved on to the four-valve engine, we will see the two-valve unit for a while longer, as it still powers the 200T.
The feature list of the Xpulse 4V includes an LED headlamp, spoke wheels, a digital instrument cluster, fork gaiters, an upswept exhaust and a dual-tone fuel tank. The 200T gets 17-inch alloy wheels instead and no fork gaiters.
The company is yet to make an official statement on why the motorcycle has been discontinued but the most obvious reason seems to be the impending arrival of a new model. The latest Xpulse 200T was teased in the first week of November. The Xpulse 200 4V costs Rs 1.37 lakh (ex-showroom) and the 200T is priced at Rs 1.24 lakh (ex-showroom). By the way, a new 300-cc adventure motorcycle is also in the works and has been spotted testing multiple times.
