Hero Impulse was always a fascinating option for those who saw motorcycling beyond the roads as their first passion. The lightweight option was equipped with quality parts that facilitated easy use on all sort of surfaces, whether it be mud, gravel or simply the rocky downhill slope. The only factor that resulting in frowning faces was its engine, simply not powerful enough to bring fun while doing all the above-listed tasks with the motorcycle. The 149cc, single-cylinder engine is good for just 13 bhp at 7500 rpm and 13.4 Nm at 5000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Race Concepts are here to save your day as existing owners of Impulse will find the modification very genuine and filled with power that was never experienced before. The engine gets itself a big bore kit, performance carburetor, different cylinder head, performance air filter, free flow exhaust and CDI unit to produce 21 hp of maximum power. Apart from the exhaust, all other changes are invisible to the eye and perform efficiently to compensate for the lack of power that existed earlier. The owners who need to use the Impulse regularly can get all this package without the free-flow exhaust system. However, the output may vary with the difference.
The custom exhaust is also mounted in the same fashion as the stock unit, keeping the water wading capacity alive on the perfectly crafted off-road machine. Hero Impulse comes with stock off-road tires with spoke wheels, 240mm front disc brake and telescopic suspension with long-distance travel. Those who were looking forward to upcoming Hero xPulse 200 can still retain their existing Impulse and get an even more impressive power output. The cost of modification is unknown while one can contact Race Concepts directly to have a quote for the stock Hero Impulse.
