Hero Motocorp, a home-grown motorbike manufacturer, is gearing up to launch the XPulse 200 in India. Before the launch, however, the company has shared official images of the bike showcasing it features from different angles. First unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018, the adventurer tourer is a successor of Hero Impulse, a 150cc adventurer sports tourer that was launched in 2013, and later discontinued in 2017.

In terms of design, the bike remains largely similar to its predecessor. However, it would come with some cosmetic upgrades to improve its utility as a touring off-road vehicle. While the design shows no major improvement, the technical specifications of the bike would receive a major boost in terms of engine and technology.
