Hero Impulse Launched

Although Hero MotoCorp has already announced the prices of the Impulse a few weeks back, the company just recently put the website live. Based on Honda’s NXR Bros, which does duty in Brazilian markets, the Impulse is a dual purpose bike, which can be used on and off-road. Hero MotoCorp has used the same 149.1 cc motor that powers CBZ X-treme, Hunk and Achiever, producing 13.2 BHP of power at 7500 RPM and 13.4 Nm of torque at 5000 RPM. The torque has been increased for better off-road response.

The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Talking about the engine reliability, this 150 cc engine is one of the most reliable engines made by Hero. The chassis is strengthened with high tensile steel to take all the abusive loading on the bike. The ground clearance is 245 mm and is provided with telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock at the rear. The bike rides on 17 inch wheels. Hero Motocorp has priced the Impulse at Rs. 69,963/- (ex-showroom, Mumbai) and Rs. 78,330/- (on-road, Mumbai). Going by the pricing, the bike makes a good value for money product but the market forces will decide how popular it becomes. Meanwhile, you can check out the Impulse website here.
