What I found through Auto Expo 2014 is everybody in the industry is trying to use Indian talent for their product development and are succeeded to deliver impressively...We see Yamaha, HMSI, Bajaj, HarleyDevidson, TVS, Maruti Suzuki, GM, Mercedes, Chrysler.....We find Bajaj CS400, GM Adra, Honda CX 01, Celerio, Ertiga....Grand Cheerookee to name few. Hero on the other hand desperately trying to get some good stuff....but nothing impressed me for success or launch able. Most of them or sized down versions/ not having good proportions...or trying to make impressions. Nothing is up to mark. Hope they find way to fix it sooner than later.

Can anybody update on this one please??



Any news about Impulse or have they ceased the production of this bike.



Are we expecting a 250CC motor??



Please update????

From the bore and stroke, this bike should be a 1000 cc bike.

π x 81² x 48.5 = = 9,99,681.49 mm³ = 999.68 cc

I think the figure is a mistake.

No word from Hero yet. But late April/early May should be a safe guess.

Maybe soon after the advent of next financial year. Nothing sure as of now.
