Hero Karizma XMR launched at Rs 1.73 lakh

The Karizma XMR competes with the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, Yamaha R15 V4, and Bajaj Pulsar RS200.

Hero MotoCorp has taken the wraps off the all-new Karizma XMR. The bike is available at an introductory price of Rs 1.73 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Karizma XMR is powered by a 210cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine that makes 25.15 BHP @ 9,250 rpm and 20.4 Nm @ 7,250 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox via a slip-and-assist clutch.

The Karizma XMR is based on a new chassis suspended by a conventional telescopic fork at the front and a 6-step adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking is handled by a single petal-type disc and a disc brake at the rear, supported by dual-channel ABS. The bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.

Speaking of the design, the Karizma XMR does feature a striking look, especially in the yellow launch colour. The bike has a sporty fairing just like its predecessor. It has a stylish LED headlamp, an adjustable windscreen and a narrow tail section with a split seat.

The bike is equipped with a digital instrument console offering Bluetooth connectivity and features like turn-by-turn navigation and SMS and call notifications.
