When Hero Honda decided to manufacturer Achiever, it picked cues in quantity from its Ambition and Unicorn models. Achiever bears a striking resemblance to the Ambition model when it comes to overall appearance. Apart from front fairing and the instrument cluster, every other design element has been picked up from the Ambition. And the power pack has been lifted from the Honda Unicorn. The two motors are almost identical, save a minuscule 0.1bhp increase.
Looks and Styling
The tank, side panels, or the tailpiece are as good as Hero Honda Ambition. Its other features regarding looks and styling are well sculpted fuel tanks with cool knee indents, a multi-reflector headlight with a halogen lamp and a position lamp, uniquely designed muffler with heat shield, dual tone painted chain case, 5 spoke black colored cast wheel, attractive visor, chrome coated filler lead, single down tube, and five exciting body colors.
Control and Comfort
The bike employs 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, the Achiever scores high on the mileage front. The bike delivers an impressive 51.3 kpl in real city conditions and 55.3kpl on the highway. However, the engine and good riding quality notwithstanding, the Achiever seems to lack that killer punch.
The bike has several features adding to its comfort level such as taller handlebars providing more upright posture, twin rear sox and drums, a multi-reflector headlight with a halogen lamp and a position lamp, conventional suspension set-up of telescopic shock absorbers at front, rectangular swing-arm adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear, front disk brake and cast wheels as standard fitment and low engine noise.
The bike is equipped with a four-stroke engine made of aluminium-alloy with an air-cooled, and twin-valve equipped motor of 149.1cc displacement.
