Since its inception, the Hero Impulse has been constantly upgraded. Over the years, this basic bike has evolved into a pretty practical and versatile machine that puts efficiency and low maintenance costs on top of its priorities list.
The Hero Impulse is powered by a 149.2 cc air cooled, 4-stroke single cylinder OHC engine which is brought to life by an electric starter. Once you start the engine it will reward you with a maximum power of 9.7 KW (13.2 Ps) at 7500 rpm and 13.4 Nm of torque at 5000 rpm. This power is kept in leash by a five speed constant mesh transmission.
To be able to deal great with tough terrains the bike was fitted with Nitrox monoshock rear suspensions coupled with tough shock absorbers up front. It also features a pair of rugged 90/100 X 10 – 53 J tires.
