I would say old wine in old bottle with new label. Hero And Honda are on the verge of taking divorce.looks like hero has realized that with Honda launching their new products,they have no option but to try and revive the old stuff.I mean something is better then nothing.

Achiever gets ATFT now!

In techincaly, wat does atft mean?

Ram October 25, 2010 at 6:03 pm

Nothing but “Advanced Tumble Flow Induction Technology” which actually means the Air-Fuel Mixture from the carb reaches the engine cylinder with a swirling action which has an advantage of a very efficient Fuel Burning resulting in more Power, better fuel economy & lower emissions as claimed by Hero Honda.

Hope it can be upgraded with engine on hunk and cbz extreme instead of the same old unicorn mill. with little bit rearset foot pegs, it can rock..at the price quotient..
HH can project it as affordable 150 cc like bajaj from discover and SZ from yamaha’s,..

lee October 25, 2010 at 11:31 pm

Yes, of course it is using d unicorn’s engine.

Russell October 25, 2010 at 8:50 pm

This one can compete with Bajaj Discover 150cc.

chintu October 25, 2010 at 10:53 pm

what is the price of it…

Reply

Ashwhin October 25, 2010 at 10:56 pm

If it’s on-road price is less than 60K,it can do well.

prikshit October 26, 2010 at 12:43 pm

60k is too much for this kind of bike……..

Reply

Aryan October 26, 2010 at 9:50 am

there is increase in power actually its more than CB Uni, could be a very good family bike with some zip in it now…anything less than 60 its worth it…
i think the design shud have been some what sophisticated like the CB Unicorn..

Reply

Raghav October 26, 2010 at 10:10 am

Well this upgrade means…
Achiever competes with CB Unicorn and Hunk with Dazzler..
if we see the specs Achiever is 0.1bhp more than CB Unicorn
and recent release of hunk sports digi goodies and LED tail…

Pundits!
Do you think Hero can manage to survive in the industry on its own…????
I mean it does not have the R&D required to maintain its number one position, ALL HH was doing was using Honda’s technicals!!!

Tech Guy October 26, 2010 at 5:17 pm

Hi,
Does not matter whether you have R and Ddepartment or not. Everybody is outsourcing these Jobs and at the end you should have money in pocket that hero has now.
The upgrade could also be centric to compete with new SZ-X and discover 150 and if review being unbiased, build quality is better than these competitors

Madhu October 26, 2010 at 7:43 pm

I don’t understand why they name this bike as “Achiver” and what the “F” thing it achived.

They better rename it to failure.

srikanth October 26, 2010 at 10:01 pm

is it now available in showrooms ?
Otherwise when is it available ? I heard its price is 58 k ex showroom !

@ Saurabh Patel – Hero is planning to have its own R&D and they are not ready to outsource it. TVS build-ed their own R&D after Suzuki’s split, and they are able to survive. Even the Munjals can do it. Because of Honda, Hero was able to give smooth and refined bikes, they will strive to do the same in the future.

Gowri October 27, 2010 at 3:04 pm

The OTR of achiever is lowest compared to any 150cc bike, Achiever is a bit of unicorn, a bit of hunk, a bit of Xtreme , light weight, most fuel efficient even betters GSR in kmpl !!

madhu October 28, 2010 at 10:34 am

R & D is not greek and latin, its easy for munjal to set it and done, honda is still behind tvs and hero knows the way to maintain their place.

Bogusman.. November 16, 2010 at 7:08 pm

Honda being forein company might hv to pay higher taxes n salaries and also huge investments in setting up outlet network in india like HH. On the other hand Hero will hv to struggle for quality n durability of engines like Honda.

hey achiver is launched again I think next year hero honda cd100, sleek and the old cbz will do the come back again and will make the record of most largest selling bikes in the world hero honda will go around 20 ha ha ha

Personally, I confess that the Munjals(owners of the Hero and Hero Honda corporate entities) – are experts in paint, sticker and new look jobs. One of these days, if they sign-up with Aprilia as often speculations have been done, they may even change their name to more Italian-sounding. (Nope, I am just kidding)

If they do collaborate with the Italian Aprilia, Yamaha will face a lot of competition, as Aprilia, many will know, designs better motorcyles than other Italian stunners like Ducati, Cagiva etc (my personal opinion). I have Ducati and Aprilia(used) showrooms near my home, I did a check.

Viva Hero-Aprilia if they do it. Don’t ask them for the Italian girls. Just go and date them. They are different. Especially if they are blonde…

Reply

Rahul verma October 26, 2011 at 10:50 am

the engine of HH Achiever is of 1.2 liter so you should fill the engine from Mobil up to 1.2 liter.I think you will follow me,because i have also HH Achiever 2006 version and it is running smoothly from 5 years.Thank you.

Karthik.S October 27, 2011 at 8:34 am

I like to get my hands on this one if its available in TN. I always liked rare bikes. Achiever is a very ordinary 150cc bike. Now the old unicorn is out, if achiever is released every were i am sure it will pick up sales.

SDEY February 11, 2014 at 9:16 pm

one point , if all well, as al is telling, why sale is so low ?
