The Hero Karizma ZMR is the Gurgaon-based two-wheeler maker’s flagship motorcycle. It was originally launched as just the Karizma in 2003 and has been on sale in various avatars for the last 11 years. This current model was unveiled at the 2014 Auto Expo.
This bike is a part of Hero’s new range and gets a relatively new design as compared to the outgoing model. The fairing has been raised and the graphics have been revised but overall the design retains the familiar Karizma silhouette.
It is powered by a 223cc single cylinder fuel injected engine that produces 20bhp and 19.7Nm. A five-speed gearbox and chain drive complete the transmission. The bike is underpinned by a diamond frame chassis with conventional suspension, telescopic front shocks at the front and gas-charged twin dampers at the rear. It gets a 276mm disc brake in front and 240mm disc brake at the rear.
Standard features include a fully digital instrument cluster with dual trip meters as well as a clock. Hero offers the Karizma ZMR in three colours-red, black and white.
