We admit it; it’s easy to get caught up in a bike that pretty much gives you everything you ask for. Having said that, it’s even easier to get excited over the Hero Honda Achiever, a bike that distinguishes itself for its imposing looks and performance credentials.

The body parts of the Hero Honda Achiever are bolder than what you’d expect from a bike of this stature. It’s also got some interesting color options, making it true eye candy.

More than that, the Achiever certainly lives up to its name by coming loaded with unique features, including a front side that has a bigger mask housing a halogen lamp and position lamp. The halogen lamp and position lamp are both integrated in a butterfly-shaped headlamp cluster. The other features are a large black tinted wind screen, front turn indicators on the side panels of the mask, and rear view mirrors that are placed at the standard handlebars.

The Hero Honda Achiever carries some digital features also, most of which you can find on the dashboard. Analog meters - the speedometer, tripmeter, and fuel gauge - can also be found on the dash, making it easy for riders to keep tabs on the bike.

Most of all, the Achiever’s one pretty stout ride. Powering this glorious steed is a 150cc air-cooled, four-stroke, single cylinder OHC engine that produces 13.4 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 12.80 Nm at 5,000 rpm.
