The Hero MotoCorp is on the way of designing future models with the inclusion of innovative and advanced “i3s” technology. As a result, the Hero Motorcorp now came up with their new Hero Achiever 150 in order to hold the grip over the ‘commuter segment’. The new Achiever boasts a new design and BS-IV-engine as well. This fruitful bike comes loaded with latest features and innovative technology too. But the question is, do this model has the ability to contend with existing segment lineup?? Let’s see the answer for this.
The most talkative about this one is the “design”. Comprising of this the new Achiever is made particularly to draw the attention of the existing segment lineup. The design is not that much interesting, as its design retains the same design and thus it implies that it’s not an eye-catchy one.
The Achiever gets a revamped fuel tank in order to enhance the graphical themes and appearance of the bike. The side panel gets an ‘Achiever 150’ badge. The tail part gets a headlamp and a single-piece grab-rail.
The analog instrument console appears dull. The semi-digital instrument clusters appeal to be good. Anyhow the Achiever highly tweaks. The seating plan is comfy and easier to handle too.
Overall, the new 2016 Hero Achiever looks sufficiently modern and should appeal to its target customer.
The new Achiever comes with a BS-IV-compliant single-cylinder, 149cc air-cooled engine that churns out a power of 13.6 PS (10 kW) and a peak torque of 12.8 Nm.
The 5-speed Manual Transmission is the best part to be discussed, which offers easy gear shift pattern of; 1-gear down & 4-gears up.
The new Hero Achiever maintains the speed as low as about 40 km/h even in fifth gear. The power punch economically pulls to the peak speed of about 80 km/h. Its frugal nature attracts the people.
The Achiever 150 is powerful and economical too. It claims to give 58.7 km/l. The inclusion of i3S technology makes this boy more economical than any other.
This new boy is muscular with a tubular diamond frame chassis. The front gets a conventional telescopic hydraulic shock absorber while the rear boasts a swing arm with twin shock absorbers. As of the riding, the Achiever is comfier and bold.
Finally, the bike has the neutral characteristics with the soft suspension, a good weight distribution, and grippy tires which makes your day while riding.
The new Hero Achiever is the bike where the Indians look up at the point of mileage. Thus this bike is meant for them who seeks for best among the better. This fuel economist with a 150cc engine proved to best in the performance perspective. It worths every penny you spent on this.
