Fresh Formula - Hero Impulse

Even the 150cc motor, one we’ve seen so many times before, seems to be the smoothest on the Impulse, whereas a nice thrashy note would’ve done it a world of good. The gearshifts are slick, barring the transition from first to second and the amount of torque delivered is disappointing. The gear ratios could’ve been brought closer to ensure short shifts with power through the rev range instead of making way for things like fuel efficiency and top speed, which aren’t really critical in something that looks this good. The brakes have been wonderfully played down to avoid nasty lock ups in the dirt, which would’ve otherwise resulted in embarrassing spills.
