Fresh Formula - Hero Impulse

The rear is brilliantly sprung, the tyres and ground clearance working impressively to get past rocks that would’ve busted other bikes open. The light weight also comes in handy, especially when you’re trying to hang on as you slide backwards on a slope.

The 17-inch rear plus 19-inch front makes it shorter than most other off-roaders, but it’s good enough for Indian riders – they can put their feet down, no problem.
