REVIEW! Hero Impulse
The Impulse gets the 12-point treatment!

Variety is meant to be the spice of life, as the say. If it’s true, then Indian motorcyclists have a new flavour to choose now! After Bajaj with their SX Enduro, no motorcycle manufacturer has bothered to give us an on-off roader, something that makes most sense for our road conditions. If you’ve always wanted a dirt-basher on two wheels, the wait is over! They did it back in 1999 with the CBZ and they’ve created a new segment again in 2011. Say hello to Hero MotoCorp’s Impulse! 

 

1. Looks the part, doesn’t it? For many, the Impulse will be a refreshing break from the commuter/streetbike/sportsbike proportions that dominate traffic on our roads.

2. The Impulse’s stance is a product of that 19-inch front/17-inch rear on-off road tyres, the long-travel front suspension and the huge 245 mm ground clearance. Don’t worry, though - the Impulse is not too tall, and will fit most riders very well.

what is the power of impulse
  Posted by Sac at 27th December,2011
Pros: Comfort riding, Good Balance, Nice look and tall stance Cons: Silencer heat impacts pillon during long drive, cannot be parked in busy roads or shops due to no center stand and weak horn for a off road bike.

I can't see any foot pegs for a passenger. Are you sure the Impulse caters for a second person?
  Posted by chetan at 15th November,2011
  dude there is lotz of space for pillion to seat....i had been gone through every details whether the bike can hold a second person behind as iam married and also having child 1 yr old....so by going from every detail i finally booked the bike....but yes only 1 major issue during rainy season how much mud we gonna face on our body unless until there could be a modification avail to bring down the mud guard of front side rear one i didn't found much prob....anyways we should welcome this bike itz really a remedy for rough pot holes and highly mounted speed breaker roads.
