A fantastic dual-purpose bike is finally here!
The long wait is over
We have ridden the Hero Impulse and are glad to say that we have liked it! Hero MotoCorp has taken a bold step of launching proper dual-purpose bike for the first time in India and they haven’t gone wrong with it at all.
The bike is powered by a 149.2cc air-cooled, 2-valves engine that produces 13.2 PS peak power and 13.4 Nm peak torque. The bike’s geometry looks promising for off-roading action. Here are some details from the Hero Impulse. For a complete first ride review, wait and watch for the BIKE India November 2011 issue!
