The RE motorcycle weighs a lot more than the xPulse, making it difficult for riders with average built to manage the huge motorcycle. However, the seat height is higher on the lighter xPulse. Both the motorcycles offer 220mm of ground clearance, good enough to tackle any terrain that comes into its way. The xPulse can also be had in a carburettor-fed version along with the touring variant with alloy wheels.
