Default Unicorn or Achiever??

One of my pals was planning on a Unicorn when the Achiever came out. Now both of them's got the same engine and power, right? So he says why not go in for the Achiever since it's got the Hero Honda reliability too; and cheaper by a few grand. But IMO the Unicorn's got better looks. And the self-start switch on the Achiever looks like a cheap add-on.

What's your say?

Its in same league as Unicorn and Achiever and surely looks better.

Thanks for your replies...my pal is going for the Achiever after all...He says its more comfortable, and somehow he's convinced he'll get good FE as well!

Glad that he sorted it out by himself. I saw some Achiever last week. I liked it.

See that he joins Tbhp

Unicorn has a monoshock in the rear and IMO better looking.

You cant go worng with Unicorn and Achiever, both bikes offer 150cc performance, decent ride quality, unmatched engine refinement and great fuel efficiency as well. And being Honda and Hero Honda fetches a good resale value after a few years. Ask him to ride on.........

Cheers,

Hero Honda should offer better service than Honda.

I own a CBF150 and I have to tell you its one sweet ride. I rode the acheiver and did not quite like it much compared to the CBF150.

Dude, HH reliability is because of HONDA.

Personally, I think he should have waited. The Apache is out and that bike is one sweet machine.

Peace
