But before you go ahead and buy one, here are the differences between the XPulse 200 and the 200T, which you need to know if you are looking for a motorcycle for a specific purpose.

Design - Hero Xpulse 200 vs 200T

In terms of design, both motorcycles stand out quite a bit — the XPulse 200 is more off-road focused while the 200T is road focused. This is visible with the styling of the motorcycle — the XPulse 200 sports long travel suspension at both ends, spoke wheels, a small visor, and a high-mounted exhaust that tucks away next to the seat.

The Hero XPulse 200T is more road-focused and the ‘T’ stands for what the motorcycle is focused at — Touring. The XPulse 200T gets a slightly sober design with alloy wheels, tyre hugging front fender, a traditional exhaust on the side, and misses out on the windshield. This is to target customers who prefer on-road travel and an efficient commuter. Also, the XPulse 200T gets a lower saddle height compared to the 200, which makes it user-friendly in the city. 

Engine specifications

Usage and competition

The Hero XPulse 200 is designed to be taken off-road as is why the high fender and spoke wheels with dual-purpose tyres. The XPulse 200T is a great choice if most of your travel is limited to good tarmac and occasional dirt tracks because the alloy wheels will not take the stress.

Both motorcycles, the Hero XPulse 200 and the 200T compete with the Royal Enfield Himalayan and the BMW G310 GS in the Indian market, while also being priced much cheaper than them. KTM is ready with an adventure model based on the 390 which is expected soon and when launched, will compete with the XPulse models.
