    The bikes are actually good, there's a few features that no other bikes get in this price range either and the S looks amazing, reminds of the old Karizma, just wish it had enough juice to match the R15 and NS or even Apache

    The design of the 200S looks very outdated but that cyclops headlight looks very interesting none the less.

    An attempt to launch an adventure bike in India is an adventure in itself and thus is the sad state of the dual sport & off-road two wheeler segment. Hero did it approximately 6 years back with its Impulse which was a very brave and forward approach which Hero followed with it's CBZ and Karizma etc. Sadly these all have succumbed to sad end.

    Xpulse now again seeks to revive the dual-sport in India alongside the existing Himalayan and 310GS for that sake but after all these years and testing and R&D as the Hero & Speedbrain claims of, the Xpulse200 is saddening. So not up to the mark and dated though comes for a good price and will serve as an entry adventure bike. The frame and weight (154kg) with 18ps which is almost squared off as compared to an upgrade from Impulse. Existing ZMA engined Impulses with their impeccable chassis will smoke the Xpulse200 anyday. But they won't have a Bluetooth paired speedo. Hah !

    What is turn by turn navigation?. Is it a rally style road book downloadable in the format provided in internation rally events.

    And bluetooth connectivity for what?

    Still lacks punch.

    Instead of the Xtreme moniker, they could've named it Karizma S instead. Would've easily flown off the shelves more easily.

    The name Karizma and retro looks fairing styling/headlight would've worked wonders.

    Really missed opportunity.

    using bluetooth you will be able to connect your smartphone to bike. And you can use maps from the phone, for turn by turn navigation

    The Xpulse 200 and 200T have arrived at the dealer stores and I happened to test ride the 200 adventure model. Looks good from front with nice LED headlight and digital console and tank design but rather conservative from behind. The seat is good and made more suited for trail riding purposes than touring and the handle bars are positioned ergonomically. The riding position is very relaxed and comfortable and it has a luggage plate mount at the rear to which a box can be attached.

    The engine is smooth and gear changes were also good but the gear indicator was showing some inconsistency for 1 gear position. The pick and acceleration is good but I think it is little short on power and would feel strained on highways and I think can do about 80ish easily without out of breath. The bike is light and easy to handle and the suspension is really good, soaks up the bumps/holes and rough surfaces without a hiccup. Overall a good bike to take to the dirt track which is not too far away and is fun to ride and priced at a very reasonable 1L, comes in both Car and Fuel injected versions.

    Why is there no XBHP review for this bike yet?
