There are so many types of bikes available in India. Some biking freaks know how to judge their biking interest regarding their riding style. Often it is seen that people modify their standard, commuter or sports bike into a dirt bike. Such modifications take a good amount of knowledge and expenses. As the bike has been modified and the things have been changed, the bike may not result favorable outputs and it will void the warranty as well.
Such situations should be avoided, and one should purchase a factory made dirt bike. Now, what is a dirt bike?  A dirt bike is used for mostly off road purposes. Because of this, dirt bikes have rugged looks and their taller height with which they are manufactured. A dirt bike is used for rough riding rather than high performance one. They also have heavy duty suspensions and very less amount of faring and damageable components. Some bikes are meant for core off road-ing while some are tuned to work over smooth and intractable surfaces.

Here, the discussion will be carried upon 3 on and off road dirt bikes present in India.

Hero Impulse

Hero had launched this bike as their first product after their disjunct with Honda Motorcycle and Scooter Ltd. Impulse brought a new segment to Indian two wheeler industry as it’s a rugged bike with knobby tyres and unusually high ground clearance. It is powered by the same Honda sourced engine which powers Honda Unicorn and Hero Xtreme Sports. This engine is a great leader in the segment and performs very smoothly. However, Impulse is a dirt inspired bike and hence the nature of the engine doesn’t matches completely with the Motorbike’s dress.
