Hero MotoCorp launches an on/off-road motorcycle 'Impulse' and a gearless scooter 'Maestro', for India with a gala affair in London

 


 

 

Hero MotoCorp, previously known as Hero Honda, has unveiled its first two products under its new brand name, christened as “Impulse” – an on/off-road motorcycle and “Maestro” – a 110cc scooter.



The debut motorcycle offering from the new-formed entity Hero MotoCorp treads into the un-chartered territory of on/off-road motorcycles, which makes a lot of sense for India conditions. A segment left absolutely untouched in the Indian motorcycle bazaar, an on/off-road motorcycle will be a good choice for work as well as pleasure.

 

 

 

 

 


A few days ago, pictures of an on/off-road motorcycle being tested in India surfaced on the internet and it was followed by a lot of speculation. We are glad to bring an end to all the speculation and confirm that Hero MotoCorp has officially unveiled its first motorcycle product called "Impulse" for India in London alongside an all-new 110cc scooter named "Maestro". The unveiling was done by Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor who will also endorse the new brand.

 

 

 


 


 
Full technical specifications of the Impulse have not been disclosed by Hero MotoCorp yet but it is confirmed that the Impulse will be powered by a 150cc engine and it will come with nitrous gas-powered rear suspension. The bike is based on the Brazilian market Honda NXR150 Bros and has been in the pipeline for a long time. The front wheel is a full 19-incher while the rear makes do with a 17-inch diameter detail. The styling is typical to an on/off-road motorcycles with an under-seat exhaust and wide raised handlebars plus that seat sweeping over the tank in the best traditions of modern day on-off roaders.
