Hero MotorCorp has added a new tough “Rally edition” to its widely popular Xpulse 200 4V motorcycle. This exclusive Rally edition will come with a factory-fitted rally kit that adds exceptional off-roading capabilities to the bike. The Xpulse 200 in its standard guise itself is a very capable off-roader and the Rally Edition takes its rugged quotient several notches above. The rally edition is dedicated to the customers who want to take their adventure riding to a next level, starting at a price of 1.52 lakh (ex-showroom).

The rally edition will be wrapped in red and white racing colours that sets it apart from the standard edition.
The factory-installed rally kit adds more suspension travel, improved ground clearance, and distinctive Rally Code graphics with the famous “CS Santosh” signature on the fuel tank.
The Xpulse 200 4V “Rally edition” comes with amplified off-roading capabilities including fully adjustable front suspension with 250mm travel and a fully adjustable 10-step rear suspension with 220mm travel, 270mm increased ground clearance, 40mm handlebar risers, and a 1426mm long wheelbase with 21″ front and 18″ rear spoke wheels fitted with dual-purpose tyres for both off-road and on-road use.

Compared to the standard model, the brakes, LED lighting, and Bluetooth-compatible console have been retained.
Hero Xpulse 200 4V Gets a More Hardcore ‘Rally EditionThe Xpulse 200 4V “Rally edition” will be powered by a 200cc, 4-valve oil-cooled engine producing 18.9bhp at 8500RPM and 17.35 Nm at 6500RPM with a 5-speed manual transmission. Apart from the rally edition, Hero MotoCorp also released a rally kit option before for the standard Xpulse 200 4V for Rs. 46,000. So, one can install this kit that will offer greater ground clearance, longer suspension travel, and a taller side stand than the stock bike. However, the only drawback was that it wasn’t road legal which tipped over many customers.
“Hero Xpulse 200 has formed a league of its own,” remarked Malo Le Masson, Head of Strategy & Global Product Planning at Hero MotoCorp. He also added “the Rally Edition brings exceptional off-road capabilities through factory-fitted Rally kit and tuned for the very best riders, together with a unique design inspired by our Dakar machines.”
