Having been first teased yesterday and then spotted at a showroom this morning, the updated Hero Xpulse 200 4V has been officially launched at Rs 1.44 lakh. The Rally edition has now been renamed as the Pro variant, and is priced at Rs 1.51 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).

Many of the changes previously observed have made their way over to the updated motorcycle. These include a new, redesigned LED headlight that’s brighter than before, as well as a 60mm taller windscreen. There’s also new switchgear which looks more premium than before as well as redesigned larger hand guards that feature a contrasting black element.

Among the less visible changes, the 200cc oil-cooled engine is now OBD-2 compliant as well as E20-compatible, while producing the same 19.1hp and 17.35Nm as before. What’s new is that the bike now sports three ride modes (Road, Off-road and Rally) for its single-channel ABS, which vary the manner in which the system intervenes.

Hero has also tweaked the rider’s triangle, with the foot pegs now 35mm lower and 8mm more rear-set than before, which should mean more room for the rider. Finally, the USB charger has been moved to a more convenient location near the cockpit.

The Pro variant features most of the ‘rally kit’ as standard fitment, including long-travel suspension at both ends with increased adjustability, a bench-style seat and handlebar risers.
