The Hero Achiever is one of the most affordable 150cc commuter motorcycles sold in India. The company recently launched the Achiever with a thoroughly revised engine and updated technology to give it a fresh lease of life.
The Hero Achiever gets very basic and conservative styling, to appeal to urban and rural customers alike. The curvy headlamp gets a bikini fairing while the muscular fuel tank has been spruced up with few decals. Powering the Hero Achiever is a 150cc single-cylinder engine which delivers 13.4bhp and 12.8Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a five-speed transmission. The instrument cluster is a fully analogue unit with speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, odometer and a trip meter.
Despite being a basic commuter motorcycle, the Achiever gets interesting features like the i3S technology. The i3S, first used in the Splendor iSmart and Splendor iSmart 110 is a fuel-saving technology which switches off the engine when the motorcycle idles in neutral for more than five seconds. The Achiever also gets alloy wheels and tubeless tyres.
The Hero Achiever is offered in three paint schemes – red, black and grey. It competes with other 150cc commuter bikes like the Bajaj Pulsar 150, Honda CB Unicorn 150, Bajaj V15 and the Yamaha SZ-RR Version 2.0. It is priced at Rs 66,000, ex-showroom, Delhi.
