Hero Motocorp , which was previously known as the Hero Honda Corp. has now launched a new model of their ‘Hero Achiever 150’ in the market which they claim to be the most fuel efficient bike of India. The reason behind their affirmation at the ‘most fuel efficient’ concept is that the engine of the new ‘Hero Achiever 150’ is based on the start/stop technology which was earlier seen in their most dependent model – the Splendor iSmart 110. This technology has helped in commuting as the engine stops automatically when the bike is stationary (in neural)and gets started again when the gear shifts from neutral.
Talking about the power of the engine the motorcycle comes with a 149cc single cylinder, air-cooled petrol engine which is good for 13.6PS of peak power and 12.8Nm of torque.
The price of the bike has been proposed to 61,800 for the Drum-brake model, whereas the model with disc is announced to 62,800. A tricolor limited edition is also launched, the basic version’s price remains unaltered.
