Hero MotoCorp has teased an updated version of the XPulse 200, which has been quite successful in the Indian market. The updated motorcycle has started reaching dealerships and should launch in the next couple of days. Hero has not made any mechanical changes to the motorcycles. Instead, they have added and improved the existing features.

The biggest feature update the XPulse 200 gets is the "ride modes," which we expect are ABS modes. Until now, the motorcycle was offered with a single-channel ABS. However, with the update, the XPulse would get dual-channel ABS. There will be three ABS modes on offer: - Road, Off-road and Rally. It is expected that in Road mode, the ABS will be activated on both wheels; in Off-road mode, the ABS will be switched off on the rear wheel; and in Rally mode, the ABS will be switched off on both wheels.

Apart from this, the motorcycle will get a new LED headlamp that should offer a better spread and throw. Apart from this, the motorcycle will also get a new windscreen, which is taller and should offer better wind protection. There will also be new knuckle guards and switchgear. The last update will be the new colour scheme, which is expected to be inspired by Hero's rally-spec motorcycle.
