After its separation with Honda, Hero Motocorp has now launched its first Hero branded vehicle, the Impulse. Impulse, priced at Rs 66,800 (ex-showroom price Delhi), will be available by the end of this month.

The Hero Impulse is a dirt bike, which is expected to open a new segment altogether for India's largest two-wheeler manufacturer.

Few of the interesting features on this bike are the nitrox-gas filled mono-shocks, high ground clearance (to help it wade through rivers), large front wheel and stud type tread pattern.

Although Hero wants to create a niche segment, they have still opted to use a 150cc engine in the Impulse.

This motor produces 13.2 BHP of power and 13.4Nm, which will ensure decent performance in the city. Now the performance of this bike is quite good as the weight is quite low at below 130 kgs.

Available in five colours, Hero says the Impulse is a dual purpose bike, which can be used for both the road and off it. Now I am not sure of how many people really use their bikes off-road but considering the fantastic conditions of our roads, the Impulse is just what we needed.
