The Xpulse will be a follow up to their off-roader Impulse motorcycle and marks the desire of the company to expand to motorcycles with bigger engine capacities.

The Xpluse is speculated to carry a 200cc single-cylinder engine and will have ABS braking at the front and rear. The showcased concept motorcycle comes with interesting details like a very well raised handlebar, rigid spoked wheels, knobby tyres, auxiliary lamps, leg guards, side panniers along with impressive paint jobs.

I am sure the Adventure Concept motorcycle XPulse gives you a directional guidance on the path that Hero is going to ride on in the future. We created this segment in India a few years ago and we feel it is about time that we start conceptualizing some new thoughts and ideas in this space. And in keeping with the rising global stature of Brand Hero, we are creating such concepts not just with the Indian user in mind, but also with a focus on the evolved global markets." said, The Hero MotoCorp - Chairman, Managing Director and CEO, Pawan Munjal.
