As you may know, Hero MotoCorp always comes with some weird design. Some like it, most don’t. Moreover, they always try to put commuter-ish design touches everywhere, even on their larger 200cc segment.
Hero Karizma ZMR is one of the perfect examples of taking an iconic bike and ruining it for everybody!
However, Hero seems to have gotten things right after a long time. Hero XPulse 200 and Hero XPulse 200 T, which was showcased at NADA Auto Show 2019, has officially launched in Nepal. Moreover, pricing has also been revealed!
As for the pricing, the Hero XPulse 200 DDS price in Nepal is set at Rs. 3,85,000. Likewise, Hero XPulse 200 T price in Nepal is set at Rs. 3,32,000.

Hero XPulse 200: What I think?
I love it! I can’t wait to get my hands on this! I’m a fan of everything XPulse has to offer: the engine, all-digital instrument cluster, dual-colored decays, the way it looks, everything!
Both XPulse 200 and XPulse 200 T looks and feels fresh. Well, the XPulse 200 T is made for the city road and daily commuting. Although, none can beat the looks of XPulse 200!
Yes, XPulse is more of an off-roading machine. It looks something of a mix between a scrambler and Royal Enfield Himalayan. Furthermore, it has the right mix of affordability with practicality, which is pretty rare for a 2019 two-wheeler.
On a side note, Hero XPulse 200 has become one of my favorites! Although, I was hoping the price would be possibly 3.50Lakhs. Still, under 4 Lakhs, I think it’s a great motorcycle. Nonetheless, I’ll be sure to tell you once I get my hands on it!
Anyways, I have this feeling… Soon, there’s going to be a lot of Hero XPulses 200 on the roads of Kathmandu.
