Hero MotoCorp Launches a Webpage for Impulse

Hero MotoCorp is already recognized across the globe as world’s largest two wheeler manufacturer. Now, its reputation has gone up manifold in India for being India’s first player to bring in a dirt bike into the country.

The company has updated the features, specs, colour, and price along with an e-brochure carrying all the details of the bike. The site looks very interactive and covers in detail aspect of all the Impulse. The page also has a FaceBook ‘Like’ button which I hit on seeing for the first time itself. The image of the Impulse right in the homepage markets the bike brilliantly. It projects the bike’s brilliancy as a city commuter and an off-roader as well.

The following are the highlights of the Impulse as listed by HMC in the page

  • High torque ATFT engine and high ground clearance for rough terrain riding
  • Raised fender and large diameter front wheel with “stud pattern’ type tyres
  • Sturdier front suspension with long stroke and large front disc brake for cross country riding
  • Nitrox gas-filled mono shock rear suspension
  • Straight pull spokes at the rear for touch terrains
  • Low maintenance seal endless drive chain
  • Digital-analog combo meter console with ‘service due’ indicator
  • Sharp edgy graphics
  • Motocross seat
  • Sporty high mount muffler

The bike is available in 5 different colour schemes namely Terra Rosa which in simple term is nothing but red, Grassland Green, Canyon Orange, Deep Sea Blue and Tar Black. All these colours are impressive on a bike like Impulse where one colour fights over the other for aesthetic supremacy.

Before the bike comes to the market, lemme give you a jist of specs for one last time.
