Hero testing new Xpulse and Xtreme with larger engines?

Some say, the bikes might use the 210cc engine from the Karizma XMR.

Hero MotoCorp may be working on a new variant of the Xpulse and a new streetfighter that could use the Xtreme nametag. Some reports suggest that the bikes might use the 210cc engine from the Karizma XMR, while others beg to differ.

The Xpulse test mule seen in these images looks smaller than the Xpulse 400 that was spotted earlier. Instead of an upside-down fork, these bikes are equipped with a conventional telescopic unit. The bike has an LED headlight and a raised front fender.

The other test bike featured in these images could be the Xtreme 210. It could be a streetfighter version of the Karizma XMR. It has large tank extensions, an upside-down front fork and alloy wheels.

The 210cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled DOHC engine that powers the Karizma XMR makes 25.15 BHP @ 9,250 rpm and 20.4 Nm @ 7,250 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox via a slip-and-assist clutch. The jury is still out on whether the recently spotted test bikes have the same engine.
