About Karizma [2003-2014]

One of the first semi-faired bikes in the country, the Karizma, has been a popular bike since it was first launched in 2003. Throughout these years, the Karizma has been given a quite a few cosmetic updates, but the engine has remained almost the same. Even the fully-faired version, the Karizma ZMR, retains the engine, but with fuel injection.

One of the first semi-faired bikes in the country, the Karizma, has been a popular bike since it was first launched in 2003. Throughout these years, the Karizma has been given a quite a few cosmetic updates, but the engine has remained almost the same. Even the fully-faired version, the Karizma ZMR, retains the engine, but with fuel injection.

The latest iteration of Karizma R features a restyled fairing coupled with all-new graphics and a redesigned engine cowl with a black theme for the engine. The bike also features clear lens turn indicators, stepped up seat, a new yellow-black instrument cluster and black alloy die-cast wheels.

The Karizma R continues to be powered by the tried and tested four-stroke SOHC 223cc engine which delivers 17bhp and 18Nm of torque. Power is put down on the road via a five-speed gearbox. The bike gets discs at the front and drums at the rear. Though the bike is tad underpowered, the dynamics have been perfected over time making it comfortable in urban stop-go traffic as well as long-distance travel.

The Karizma R is available in five colour schemes- Sport red, Spotlight white, Daring yellow, Ebony grey and Power black. Priced at Rs 81,600 (ex-showroom Delhi), the Karizma R goes up against Bajaj Pulsar 220F, Bajaj NS200 and TVS Apache RTR 180.
