The spotlight of the Xpulse 200 4V is its 199.6cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled, four-valve engine. Though the height torque figures of 18.8bhp and 17.35Nm aren’t too far off from the 2V model, it is the best way the 4V model delivers these numbers that makes it an absolute deal with on the freeway. Whereas 70kmph is easy, 80kmph might be accomplished in a whole day. You may prime out at 100kph as nicely, however that involves about 1,500 rpm shy of the motor’s redline, and issues get loud and buzzing round this level. It is not that there is a lower in acceleration velocity, however that is the place you miss the sixth place within the gearbox. For reference, at full throttle, the speedometer will level barely north of 120 kmph.
The engine returned gas financial system of 36.5kmpl on the freeway, and this was achieved with barely aggressive inputs on the throttle. At these ranges, the Xpulse 200 4V ought to return a variety of about 475km between gas stops. Word that our readers and Xpulse 200 4V house owners have reported an financial system of 40kmpl, which supplies the motorbike a variety of over 500km per full tank.
Freeway runs are often hooked up to baggage, and the Xpulse 200 4V’s baggage rack on the rear, although compact in dimension, turns out to be useful whereas nonetheless saving some seating space. The above journey motorbike was supplied with tail luggage – a 10-litre Carbonado Mod Pac and a 32-litre Vytera aspect. Along with the tail rack, a tube-type encompass close to the pillion footrest and extra plastic panels behind the rear numberplate permit for higher, sturdier mounting factors for these tail luggage. Then there’s the steel gas tank that is appropriate with magnetic tank luggage just like the Rynox Magnapod.
Lastly, the comfy ergonomics and plush suspension setup make it bearable for lengthy durations within the saddle and at the very least two hours earlier than you want a break. It’s also straightforward to face on the footpeg, although not as comfy as one would really feel on the Royal Enfield Himalayan; I blame the comparatively ahead set footpegs on the Xpulse 200 4V. Nevertheless, that is not all reward for the Xpulse 200 4V.
