Hero XPulse 300 & Xtreme 300S caught testing in Ladakh

The XPulse 300 is expected to rival the KTM 390 Adventure, while the Xtreme 300S might compete with the KTM RC 390 & Apache RR 310.

Hero MotoCorp is putting two of its new bikes through their paces in the high-altitude region of Ladakh. The bikes seen in this video are believed to be the XPulse 300 and Xtreme 300S.

Although the bikes are wrapped in camouflage, there are a couple of components that give away their identity. The ADV bike clearly has a red trellis frame underneath, which was first seen on the XPulse 300 Concept. The shape of the clutch cover is also familiar.

The XPulse 300 test bike is equipped with a petal-type disc brake and wire spoke wheels. The bike also has a chrome side stand and a rear swingarm that looks similar to that of the concept.

While the XPulse 300 is expected to rival the likes of Royal Enfield Himalayan, KTM 390 Adventure and BMW G 310 GS, the Xtreme 300S might compete with the KTM RC 390, Apache RR 310 and the BMW G 310 RR.

The full-faired Xtreme 300S features multi-spoke alloy wheels and clip-on handlebars. Both bikes are likely to share the same engine with a displacement of around 300cc.
