New Hero XPulse 200 4V will feature a four-valve cylinder head which will offer more engine refinement, and perhaps better performance.
Hero MotoCorp has released an official teaser video of the updated Hero XPulse 200 on the brand’s official website. As the name suggests, the new model, to be called the Hero XPulse 200 4V, will likely feature a four-valve cylinder head, offering better engine refinement, as well as a slight bump in performance. For reference, the current Hero XPulse 200 uses a 199.6 cc, air and oil-cooled engine which makes 17.8 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 16.45 Nm of peak torque at 6,500 rpm. With the Rally Kit, the XPulse 200 offers a superb platform to start off-road riding with. However, the current model is let down by a lack of top-end performance to take on slightly longer adventures, and long-distance rides.

The teaser video comes just days after spy shots revealed the new XPulse 200 4V at a Hero dealer event, as well as the bike being tested on public roads. The new graphics, as well as white and blue colour scheme is a dead giveaway on the teaser video that it’s the XPulse 200 4V which is being teased. The video gives quick glances of the bike, without revealing it completely, and parts of it seems to be shot on the outskirts of Gurugram. The knobby tyres of the bike used in the video seems to suggest that the Rally Kit has been used on the bike in the video.
