    the styling is of a typical dirt bike, the front mud guard tho not of mch use in the rains give a nice arrow forward feel to the bike! the icing is the silencer below the seat, that always has ppl asking and staring. The long seat can take me, my bag and a person at the back and his/her bag!



    engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox


    149 cc engine is silent, sometimes makes me wwonder if it is even on. Bt a typical silent killer, 0-30 leaves most bikes in the mirror well, thne they start catching up and evn go ahead, a little more power wud do on road. Handling is as nimble as possible, lik iv mentioned go anywhere do anything bike it is. Fuel fill it forget it, is what i hav been doing for the last 2 years of owning the bike. Gear box is a slight issue though, switching from 1 to 2 always go to false neutral, well hav read is a hero problem so ccant blame the bike. But hav taken to the roughest of terrain eg. Rajmachi(lonavala) bike mae the dirt eat itself.


    Ride quality & handling


    hav tried steps, jumps, pot holes, footpaths, gravel, mud, sand, ......... List goes on and there is nothing stopping this bike. Light no wait very light. Grt handler. Seat is so soft u can sleep on it. Best part the seat extends forward saves ur b@ll$)). Very helpfull


    final words


    a bike i would hav any day and always seems to put a smile on ym face and even after 2 years still find something new to do with it!


    more then 15 k km do in 1 year! thats how mch i cant stop riding it!



    areas of improvement


    hero pls come up with a bigger engine. Everything is beyond perfect.


    Pros

    go anywhere do anything

    cons

    little lack of power for the road

    It's my pleasure surprise from my parents for me.

    It's very comfortable while you are riding and it's attachments to the road are fabulous.

    The looks of the bikes are undisputed and it's pretty much faster than 149cc bikes.

    If you care about it everyday and pay attention to its servicing, then it is quite easy and very good you will feel it.

    Talking about the advantages, if you talk about the benefits and the loss, only one thing i did not like is that it is not that the side stand is not given its cause.

    Due to not being another side stand, you may have trouble getting rid of puncture.

    My buying experience is not great because its more than great because it was in my budget under 1 lakh inr. My riding experience is truly more than expected because it is on-road , off-road bike it allows me to go anywhere that means rural/urban areas both.It has spokey wheels which has more stronger than alloy wheel . These spokey wheels are more effective for off-road riding because in off-riding there are many speed breakers in road digged form.That digged road are creating more damage when u r in off-road riding with heavy weight like 2 or more than 2 peoples in bike but thanks to spokey wheels which creates low damage to tire.The bikes look is truly great obviously because it was my bike . The black colour suits to every one according to me and performance as i told above is so great for any biker.My bike is new for me that's why i don't do lots of servicing or maintenance .Over all bike is great and good for everyone.

    The hero impulse ,a bike that was never popular and even a flop, well i'll will prove you wrong .At first glance you can tell this bike can do anything ,climb mountains with ease ride down the nastiest of road paved or not and tackle the craziest of traffic like you where alone on that road .This little 150 cc machine is build to take a punch whether it riding down some stairs or true some nasty puddle or up stairs and why not on a perfectly pave road ,this bike can do it all ,with the most amount of suspension available in India this bike is design to tackle the rough and the tight stuff, much like our road here ,full off pot hole different kind off tarmac and many obstacle every few meters ,yet India is seem to be bent on looks with those crotch rocket with warrior name and transformer looks ,that put your head at the same level as your nicker and with a suspension that was design for the race track ,not something that is desirable in those mine field off road full of traffic ,where you want as much plushness as possible and your head as high as possible ,so you don't feel as you are ridding in the back off some old broken down auto .The hero impulse is design like a dirt bike ,so very prime off the start if you able to shift properly you can leave every one in your dust ,it was also design to fit in between rocks and trees ,well cars and sing post are very much like those ,so quick of the start and very nimble sound like a good combo to me .

    Mechanically a pure perfection ,build for the harness off the dirt road and with minimal faring ,it is a joy to work on and that is not something that you will have to do often .With it a big gas tank and his light weight you go can go very far on one tank . Every other country who produce motorcycle have a multitude of those on off road bike for sale and in most off those places they have much better road and and way more relax traffic than we do ,so why every else got it and we didn't ,is it the look ,is it the speed . Well some one got it because hero is at it against the will produce a new impulse with more power more refinement ,like abs and maybe air cool engine ,will India get this time ,i hope so ,those bike can do anything unlike those transformer full off plastic parts that break off at the first little impact ,think twice for your next bike ,impulse is more than just a impulse

    I bought this bike three months ago, i am riding this bike daily. The main problem is in the mono shock. I did not find the bike comfortable while i ride in the rough road, i think rear mono shock is not working well, might be technical default. I took the bike in the service center and made complain about it. They tried to fix it but the problem is same. So manufacturer should check the rear shock and have to solve the problem and call the customer to change their mono shock. Thank you.

    The only one wonderful machine made by hero. I love to ride it on roads and of-course offroads. It's like a toy on offroading and on rural roads. The bike can fulfill your needs except on highways. That was hero's mistake. They didn't give the power it needs. On highway...
    The only one wonderful machine made by hero. I love to ride it on roads and of-course offroads. It's like a toy on offroading and on rural roads. The bike can fulfill your needs except on highways. That was hero's mistake. They didn't give the power it needs. On highways i wish it would have more powerful. But we can cruise at a speed of 80 km/h comfortably.

    It's awesome to ride this bike. It gives you that off-road feeling. It's good in looks not amazing though. It doesn't need much maintenance but depends on your use. If you are total off road then you got to change tyre's. It didn't need much of service just change of oil. It's not for making career in off road rallies but just to get your hands on it good. For road it's awesome. You must go for it if person sitting behind is comfortable with. As for me i used it really rough. And thus got a little less but for normal use its gonna be awesome.

This isn’t our typical BikeWale comparison test wherein we go into the nitty-gritty of design, appeal, technology, riding pleasure, pricing or value even, to come to a conclusion on which is a better product. How can it be; the Hero Impulse isn’t even in production anymore....
