“Impulse – the first model to be launched under our new brand identity – is not just a new product. It also introduces an entirely new segment within the motorcycle market, i.e. the ‘on-road-off-road’ segment. This is a dual-purpose bike, which can be used on regular city roads as well as on off-road terrain. With the attractive price tag, we are sure ‘Impulse’ is going to bring a lot of cheer and added excitement for our customers this festive season. And so, we have planned to make Impulse available for test rides and purchase at several locations across the country ahead of Diwali,” Mr. Anil Dua, Senior VP (Marketing and Sales), Hero MotoCorp, said.
