Thanks to the engine-sharing with the Hero Karizma XMR, the new Hero Xpulsar 210 will likely offer approx 25 PS and over 20 Nm of peak power and torque
The new Hero Karizma XMR has been pretty quick with garnering plenty of attention from the motorcycle enthusiasts. Marking the return of the iconic brand, the new motorcycle is a well-sorted offering that looks all set to take on the likes of the Bajaj Pulsar RS200. But Hero MotoCorp’s product onslaught won’t end with the XMR. It’s now working on a new Xpulse. In fact, this version will address the Achilles Heel’ by helping the adventure motorcycle with more grunt.

The additional punch will be courtesy of a new motor from the Karizma XMR. Hence, akin to the new fully-faired motorcycle, the Hero Xpulse 210 will feature a liquid-cooled engine that will make the dual-purpose offering a lot more potent than before. So far, the XPulse has been quite popular among adventure motorcyclists. A reason for this following is the attractive price and the capable suspension. However, more power is something that is certainly on the mind of many users. Thankfully, this is exactly what Hero MotoCorp has in mind for the next-generation model.
Test prototypes of the Hero Xpulse 210 were recently seen with heavy camouflage. However, it’s almost a certainty that the new model will feature the 210 cc engine of the Karizma XMR. This will definitely improve the top-end performance of the budget adventure tourer. In the past, the Xpulse transitioned from a 2V to a 4V setup, but the performance improvements weren’t significant. With the 2024 model, we can anticipate a maximum power output of approximately 25 bhp and peak torque of over 20 Nm.

Hero Xpulse 210 is likely to launch in the first-half of next calendar year. An approximately 6 bhp and 3 Nm bump is sure to make the new Xpulse a lot more portent than the current offering. Meanwhile, the design will undergo an evolutionary change. This means some of the body panels could be retained or tweaked from the current version. While the new version is sure to cost a tad bit more than the current model, it will still remain a budget-friendly option for the adventure motorcycling enthusiasts. Currently, the Hero Xpulse 200 4V retails in a price range of Rs 1.45 lakh to Rs. 1.52 lakh (ex-showroom). We expect a price increment of at least Rs. 20,000-25,000.
