Hero MotoCorp has launched the new Achiever 150 at a price tag of Rs 61,800 and Rs 62,800 for the disc brake variant. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi.

The Achiever comes fitted with a 149 cc engine that delivers 13.4 horsepower and 12.8 Nm of torque and comes connected to a 5-speed transmission. The biggest attraction about the engine, though, is that it is BS-IV compliant. Which means the bike can continue to go on sale even when the new emission regulation norms come in place starting April 2017 wherein, it is mandatory for all two-wheelers to have a BS-IV engine.

The bike also comes with Hero MotoCorp's i3S technology (idle-start-stop system) which helps in delivering a better fuel economy. The company claims that the bike is capable of doing 0-60 km/h in five seconds.

In terms of styling, the Achiever comes with enlarged fuel tank, rear fairing, redesigned tail light, analog-digital speedometer with side stand indicator and Automatic Headlamp On (AHO) which enhances safety during daytime and low-visibility conditions.

The bike will be available in three colour options and the company also unveiled a limited edition Achiever to commemorate the 70 million customers of the company. Only 70 units of this variant will ever be made.

The company claims to have a market share of over 65% and 55% in the 100cc and 125cc segment respectively. What remains to be seen is whether the company is able to create a mark for itself in the premium 150 cc segment with their new offering.
