(L-R) - Markus Braunsperger, Chief Technology Officer, Hero MotoCorp Ltd., Pawan Munjal, Chairman, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Hero MotoCorp Ltd and Malo Le Masson, Head-Global Product Planning, Hero MotoCorp Ltd. at the launch of all new Achiever 150 in New Delhi.


Hero MotoCorp Ltd. (HMCL) has launched the new Achiever 150 priced at Rs 62,800 (Ex-showroom Delhi) for the Disc variant and Rs 61,800 (Ex-showroom Delhi) for the Drum variant.


The Achiever 150 is powered by the new BS-IV compliant 150 cc TOD (Torque on Demand) engine that also features the Hero patented i3S technology. The air-cooled single cylinder, 4-stroke engine produces a maximum power output of 13.6 PS (10 kW) at 8000 rpm and maximum torque of 12.8 Nm at 5000 rpm. The bike races from 0-60 kmph in five seconds.                                    


The launch of the new Achiever 150 comes soon after the introduction of the Splendor iSmart 110 – Hero’s first motorcycle to have been completely designed and developed by its own R&D team, based at the Centre of Innovation and Technology (CIT) in Jaipur.


The Company is already the dominant market leader in the 100cc and 125cc segments - with over 65 percent and 55 percent market share respectively in these segments.   


The new Hero Achiever 150 features new headlights and winkers, large visor, bulging fender and cowl with new graphics that add to the exterior appeal of the motorcycle. The new enlarged fuel tank with flush type lid, rear fairing, tail light, RR grip and muffler cover enhances the confident stance of the bike.


The new Hero Achiever 150 comes in three colour schemes - Panther Black Metallic, Candy Blazing Red and Ebony Grey Metallic.


Pawan Munjal, Chairman, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Hero MotoCorp Ltd. said, “The launch of the new next generation Achiever 150 is a reiteration of our strong focus on developing new, technologically superior and youthful products across segments for our customers in India and across the globe. As the dominant market leader in both 100cc & 125cc segments in the domestic market, we are now looking at expanding our presence in the premium segment as well and the New Achiever 150 is a move in that direction.


“Over the years, we have continuously reinvented ourselves with the changing times to set new global benchmarks and cross several milestones. The 70 million cumulative production is special because this has been possible due to our sustained leadership performance. This is a proud moment not just for us as a Company, but also for the entire nation, especially with the Prime Minister’s focus on the ‘Make in India’ initiative. However, instead of resting on our laurels, we are now gearing up for the next Big Milestone of 100 Million cumulative production.”
