Hero’s road-biased Xpulse, the 200T has been updated to meet BS6 emission norms. Priced at Rs 1.13 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) the bike now costs around Rs 19,000 more than the discontinued carburetted BS4 model. When compared to the Xpulse 200, the T costs around Rs 2,000 less.
Fuel-injection and modifications to the exhaust system have brought about a change in the power and torque figures. It now makes 18.1hp and 16.1Nm, while the older one made 18.4hp and 17.1Nm. Another significant change is the addition of an oil-cooler.
The oil-cooler and the catalytic converter in the exhaust have brought along with them a 4kg increase in weight, putting the BS6 200T’s weight at 154kg. The rest of the bike, meanwhile, appears identical to the BS4 model.
