Hero Karizma XMR: What’s new?
In terms of style, it looks aggressive, and with a full fairing, the bike now feels sportier. Just like the outgoing Karizma, this one is available in three different shades, including – Iconic Yellow, Turbo Red and Matte Phantom Black. The design is further enhanced by using an LED headlamp and taillamp. However, it’s not just about the style, and Hero has made the bike even more ergonomic than before.
Based on a steel tubular trellis frame, Hero Karizma XMR features a 50:50 weight distribution. A decent suspension setup has been offered on the bike, but not to forget, it does get a monoshock unit at the rear, just like any other bike from the segment. For braking duties, Hero has deployed a 300mm petal disc upfront, while at the rear, a smaller 230mm does the job. For enough braking power and stability, there’s a dual-channel ABS available as standard.
It is a feature-rich sports bike without any doubt and to name a few, the Karizma XMR features an adjustable windshield, projector LED headlamp, all digital riders display and Bluetooth connectivity, among others.
Powering the Karizma XMR is a new 210cc liquid-cooled four-valve engine. As we know, this is the first DOHC engine from Hero, the power figures are expected to be impressive, and yes, they are impressive at 25.5PS and 20.4Nm.
Hero has confirmed that the new bike features a 6-speed gearbox. However, not to forget, it will be getting a slip and assist clutch as standard.
Another exciting fact about the 2023 Karizma XMR is that it can do a 0-60 kmph sprint in just 3.8 seconds. And for added peace of mind, the oil replacement of the engine has improved and now stands at 12,000 kilometres.
Other than all this, Hero MotoCorp has confirmed that the customers still get a lot of scope for an individual experience. As a result, several additional accessories, such as anti-glare wing mirrors, tank bags and mobile holders, will also be offered.
