Read about Hero Honda Achiever bike review. Hero Honda Achiever motorcycle is a popular motorcycle in India.
The Hero Honda Achiever bears
a striking resemblance to the Ambition model in
terms of overall appearance. Other than the front
fairing and the instrument cluster, everything
else-- the tank, side panels, or the tailpiece
--has been picked up verbatim from the Ambition.
If the styling cues have been taken from the Ambition, the power pack has been lifted from the Honda Unicorn. The two motors are almost identical, barring a minuscule 0.1bhp increase claimed for the Achiever over the older Unicorn's 13.3bhp at 8000rpm.
The Achiever is equipped with a four-stroke engine constructed of aluminium-alloy with an air-cooled, and twin-valve equipped motor of 149.1cc displacement. The bike uses the conventional suspension set-up of telescopic shock absorbers up front and rectangular swingarm with adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear.
For a 150cc bike, Achiever scores high on the mileage front. The Hero Honda Achiever delivers an impressive 51.3 kpl in real city conditions and 55.3kpl on the highway. Despite a gem of an engine and good riding quality, the Achiever somehow lacks the killer punch to stand out in a competitive market.
