The three models were announced to have their market introductions prior to the festive season by Mr. Pawan Munjal, Chairman and CEO of Hero Motocorp.

All three models are expected to get Hero’s i3S automatic start-stop system, which automatically shuts off the engine when idle. Hero is also expected to introduce a new 150 cc engine on the Achiever, which will be a Hero-developed unit. This engine would be introduced on other models as well in the future including the likes of the Hero Xtreme and the Hero Hunk.
