Developed to deal effortless even with the harshest terrains, the Hero impulse is the first motorcycle which wears a Hero Motor Corp badge.

The new bike has a sporty design with a black mudguard and a high headlamp. Additionally the wide handlebars come with knuckle-guards to keep mud off your hands.

The Hero Impulse is powered by a 149.2 cc, air cooled, 4- stroke single cylinder OHC which offers a maximum power of 9.7 kW (13.2 Ps) @ 7500 rpm and 13.4 Nm of torque @ 5000 rpm.

The bike is equipped with the new ATFT- Advanced Tumble Flow Induction Technology. This technology offers a better balance of power and full efficiency, improving the mileage and reducing noxes. The ride quality is assured by a long stroke front suspension and a Nitrox gas-filled mono shock rear suspension.

The Hero Motor Corp Impulse has a starting price of Rs 66,800 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Maxabout ---- "Hero MotoCorp has officially launched the Impulse in India, the dispatches have already started and it will soon be available at showrooms in metros and Tier-I cities."

Zigwheels ---- "Say hello to the Hero Impulse which is based totally on the Brazilian market Honda Bros. However, here in India, it is the Impulse for all wannabe biking Heroes who want to feel that a bike with go-anywhere capability is what will make them rise in esteem."

Ibnlive ---- "The Impulse’s engine is substantially the same as the CBZ X-Treme but it wears a new cam, a new balancer shaft and a different carb spec which all make it very different from the Hunk/CBZX/Unicorn/Dazzler"

Autocarindia ---- "The Impulse is the first motorcycle to wear a Hero MotoCorp badge and Hero Moto has boldly gone ahead to kick-start a new on-off road segment with this motorcycle."
