The standard line of bikes from Hero came under fire in their latest avatar after Hero unveiled impulse. Views about the bike have been strongly divided. There is the camp that has given Hero credit for making the kind of effort it has to make the bikes look bold and sporty. The naysayers have gone all out to trash the bike. Many have stated that the 2014 impulse models go a step back when compared to the previous model.
Just a couple of days back got a chance to ride India’s first on-off road bike the Hero Impulse.
There are my some annotations about this bike
The impulse have super smooth engine.
Comfortable riding posture.
Good pickup and nicely spread torque.
Parts are of good quality, feels sturdy.
This is the chief bike that Hero Moto Corp has launched after the break-up with Honda. However it is additional or less same as Honda NXR Bros which is sold in some other country.
Touching on, the first observation about the bike was that it was very handsome looking bike and very tall at the same time. It really looks different from the slew of bikes flooding our Indian roads. Sit on the bike and you can feel that you are sitting on some different sort of bike very different and refreshing indeed.
If the talking about suspension, that is neither stiff nor do soft and felt just perfect on smooth roads as well as the broken sections. It is completely good and easy handling just perfect and it was really fun to ride it there. Towards sum up the bike are a looker and a sure head turner. It has a good tested Honda engine delivering decent performance and should also return respectable fuel efficiency. The switchgear was also of decent quality.
If in the market hunting for a 150cc motorbike this bike is what I would have bought. I strappingly endorse to this Hero Impulse motorcycle.
