Most two-wheeler manufacturers have increased prices multiple times this year due to rising input costs
India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, Hero MotoCorp has increased prices of its scooters and motorcycles at least three times this year. These were mostly due to increasing commodity prices.
While manufacturers try to absorb much of the increased production cost, there comes a time when some of it has to be passed on to customers. In the latest round of price hike, Hero has increased prices by around Rs 3k. The new prices have been applicable from September 20th.

Hero will soon launch Xpulse with a new, more powerful 4-valve engine. The current unit has a 2-valve head setup. A 4-valve system improves combustion, thereby improving performance and torque output. Fuel efficiency can also be increased with a 4-valve engine. Xpulse 4V will also get cosmetic updates such as new colour options and graphics.
In its current form, Xpulse is powered by a 200cc, oil cooled motor that makes 17.8 bhp at 8500 rpm and 16.45 Nm at 6500 rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed constant mesh transmission. This engine is shared by Xpulse 200T and Xtreme 200S.
