Af­ford­able ADV tourer

Auto Today - - Feature -

The XPulse car­ries for­ward the legacy of the pop­u­lar 150cc Im­pulse which, at its time, was the only op­tion for an af­ford­able off-road fo­cused mo­tor­cy­cles. The XPulse builds upon that con­cept and in­te­grates changes that bring it up-to-date with mod­ern trends like LED head­lamps and a dig­i­tal dash that in­te­grates smart­phone con­nec­tiv­ity via Blue­tooth for nav­i­ga­tion dis­play. The XPulse bor­rows the 200cc air-cooled mo­tor from the re­cently un­veiled Xtreme 200R and pro­duces an iden­ti­cal 18.4bhp and 17.1Nm of torque. The front wheel is a 21-inch unit to tackle the big­gest of pot­holes in the city and chal­leng­ing ter­rain on trails. To­gether with the 18-inch rear wheel shod with dual pur­pose tyres, long-travel sus­pen­sion and 220mm ground clear­ance, the XPulse will eas­ily han­dle of­froad tour­ing du­ties while the low seat height will also make it easy to com­mute on.
