Hero Hunk

Launched as the Hero Honda Hunk way back in 2007, this is a bike in the 150cc category that is one of the most masculine and heavy bikes in the category. Weighing 146 kg when dry, the latest variant of Hero Hunk comes with a rear disc brake or a rear drum brake. Both these models are equipped with a 149.2cc 4 stroke single cylinder engine that can deliver 14.4 PS power and 12.8 Nm torque.

Hero Hunk Mileage

Hero Hunk Mileage

In comparison, the Hero Achiever – another 150cc bike from Hero can only deliver 13.5 PS of power. Among the bikes we have reviewed, the Hero Hunk is only bettered in power by Apache RTR 160 and Honda CBR 150R that can deliver 15.2 PS and 17.81 PS of power respectively. The Hero Hunk is available at a starting price of Rs. 66,125 ex-showroom from Delhi.

Official Claim

Not too many bikes in the 150cc have a column dedicated to mileage on their brochure. That’s because at this range, people normally stop looking for fuel economy and instead look for power. But with Hero Hunk, the manufacturer has made a special mention of features like low-friction core 2 engine, an advanced microprocessor ignition system fitted with a carburetor controlled variable ignition system that “delivers optimum power, torque and acceleration along with better fuel efficiency”. So what’s the economy like? According to Gaadi.com, Hero Motocorp has claimed a mileage of 65.1 kmpl on the Hunk. Not bad at all considering that the maximum mileage we have come across so far in this category has been 62.4 kmpl offered by the low powered Yamaha SZ-x.

Customer Reviews

Let’s start with the review from IndianDrives. The website compares the Hunk against Yamaha SZ-R and notes that the Hunk may in fact be delivering a lower fuel economy than the Yamaha rival. Unlike official claims, the Hunk is seen to be offering only around 47.2 kmpl mileage on city roads. MaxAbout on the other hand has more positive picture in their review. They report a mileage of between 52-58 kmpl on city roads that can go as high as 60 kmpl on the highways. If this is what you are going to be seeing on your bike, it is seriously good considering we are talking of a 150cc bike here!

WheelMela has a pretty similar report noting an overall mileage of 53 kmpl on the Hunk. IndiaMart quotes the exact same figure. On ProdEase, the Hero Hunk is given an okay rating with respect to fuel consumption although its overall performance is not questioned. They note a fuel efficiency of 49.1 kmpl.

A number of bikers have reviewed the Hunk on BikeAdvice and from their reports, it is evident that the average mileage that one may expect from this 150cc bike is between 45-50 kmpl. There are of course reports of better mileage of even up to 62 kmpl, but they are definitely under extremely favourable conditions and should probably not be considered while looking for city road performance.

To validate this report, let’s also look into user reviews posted on MouthShut. There are over 210 reviews for Hero Hunk (since its Hero Honda days) and the rating from reviewers in the past year has been 4/5 on fuel consumption. Most of these reviewers seem to be insanely in love with their bike. The mileage reported by these users has been consistently between 45-55 kmpl. One user points out that the mileage may not be great in the initial months but should go above the 50 kmpl post the first servicing.

All said and done, this bike appears to be a perfect recommendation for those seeking a combination of good power and good mileage. Should you go for it? Absolutely. Here is a snapshot of mileages reported by the various reviewers.

    Hi guys

    I have a Hero Hunk 2012 model bike and I am very unhappy to have purchased this bike because my bike mileage is only 35 kmpl and also my bike engine is having a problem in head. I think my bike is duplicate. I consulted a Hero dealer in Chennai on Walltax road who have not responded to my query and instead told me that my bike is not covered in the 3 years engine warranty. I don’t know why it is not covered since I had purchased my bike just 1 year back. So please avoid purchasing Hero Hunk.

      Sir, Please share your telephone number. If you are based in Delhi then we want to invite you for a paid discussion.

    After lot of reseach and thinking I purchased Hero Hunk 4-5 months back as it was promising good mileage but so far im getting only 33-35 kmpl. Also there were issues with engine oil leakage and that too three times in just intial 3-4 months. As per the service center this leakage is not covered in warranty and I had to pay all 3 times. Very Bad experience till now. As per my advice don’t go for this junk.

  8. Soumik Mukherjee 16 July 2013 at 11:03 am Permalink

    it’s only one year over my bike is not crossing the speed after 55-60 as per my opinion the engine is shouting when it is in 60 speed i had already contact with authorized service center lot’s of time but they are not able solve this . Specially in hero the after sales service
    is very very bad .Those people who are working over there don’t have any difference between the road side garage shop workers.They are playing with the market reputation .when hero & honda are working together that time also it was not bad .But as per current scenario it totally worst.

    Hunk is giving me a mileage of 45-48 kmpl on an average. I’m happy with it. I don’t know how you people don’t get mileage!!!

  11. rD 14 October 2013 at 9:14 am Permalink

    Hello friends, I bought this bike on 24 Oct 2012 and I am getting a mileage of up to 35-40kmpl only. After crossing 50 kmph speed, the bike vibrates terribly. I am really disappointed with my decision. Please don’t go for this bike. The looks are good but that alone is not going to satisfy you.

  12. Madan 28 October 2013 at 9:44 am Permalink

    I purchased Hunk a year back. It is giving me a mileage of 30-35 kmpl. Buying this was a very bad decision. Even the Yamaha SZ-R that my friends have is better.

    Dear all,

    This is Abdul Malik from Kota, Rajasthan. I purchased Hero Hunk on 22 Dec 2013, 1 and half month before. I have many problems regarding riding my bike. I told all problems to Hero dealer and service center also but they are not taking any action. I am really disappointed with Hero service. I suggest all to please do not purchase Hero Hunk.

    • Zeus 14 September 2014 at 1:42 am Permalink

      Hi malik
      Please adjust your carb. this is one of the few reasons of getting lower milage.
      If you are an expert you your self vam adjust the air screw and the fuel screw to max milage….
      Tell me , if this solved the issue or not.

  19. kumarjeet saxena 9 March 2014 at 3:01 am Permalink

    Correct Tyre pressure and driving steep of 50 to 55 kmph gives you mileage of 55 to 58 kmpl or manufacturer mileage, do regular service after every 2000km run. if you racing don’t look for millage. if you run at 80kmph, mileage drops to 40. this formula works for bike, car, trucks, jugaad etc :)best of luck..

    Hero Hunk……. The Beast….
    I am riding this for last one year… What I can say for it, it is the best descission that I ever made…
    It was a long research that I made before my first bike.. And after all discussion I opted for Hero Hunk…
    And belive me, it was worthy enough…. Lets chek the present stats of my beast…
    Fuel economy is arround 52 kmpl in city conditions ant it easily streches upto 55-57 kmpl on highways…
    And if I talk about the smoothness, it can make you asleep ( it happened with me)..
    The only problem I am facing, the throttele… It goew beyond 50 kmph with just a gentle twist…
    In short it made me feel proud to be a owner of this beast…

  26. JOY THOMAS 12 August 2014 at 9:58 am Permalink

    I am using HUNK for 2.6 years,Getting mileage between 48 to 52, on an average of 46..as all you know it’s all depends on the conditions.

    The problem is when you speeds more than 60kmph, mileage figure drops too much.Still a good bike,enough power,reasonable mileage,more over great control

  27. Zeus 14 September 2014 at 1:34 am Permalink

    My new hunk deliver 60-65 mileage in the highway while in the city it is about 55-60 with constant speed of 40 kms/hr. Much better comfort for longer travels and hills riding. Coming to sports mode u can chase anyone easily.

  39. AKS 18 August 2015 at 2:52 pm Permalink

    Hi guys. After 6 months of research I finally had stucked with Hero Hunk on 2nd July 2013.
    After completion of these two year, if anyone proposes me to gift a bike, I probably would go for a Hunk again (This time ofcourse dual disc). Seriously guys, such a combination of power, mileage, build quality, reliability and obv looks is hard to find in rhis price tag. I am enjoying arround 50-51 kmpl of mileage on the city and it extends upto 55-58 kmpl on the clutch free roads.
    Many of here have complained about mileage here, to them, guys this is a man maid mechine, it wont work by its own. You need to improve your riding habits, viz, instant accelarations, keeping the engine on in the jams, ignoring scheduled service etc. This bike is just an awesome one, keep it in good condition, and it’ll always leave you with a proud chest…
