Hero Karizma Features and Overview

The 2016 Hero Karizma R is a performance bike from the stables of Hero MotoCorp. It is powered by a powerful 223cc single cylinder engine, which helps the bike accelerate from 0-60 kmph in just 3.8 seconds *, on to a top speed of 125 kmph*. The high-torque nature of the engine also helps in cruising at high-speed, while the long wheelbase adds to the stability of the bike. The Hero Karizma R comes fitted with a large-diameter front disc brake, alloy wheels and electric start as standard, along with red and gold accents and new body graphics.

The 2016 Hero Karizma R's mileage is 45 kmpl. The bike is available in Daring Yellow, Sport Red, Power Black, Spotlight White and Ebony Grey. The Karizma R price as of February 2016 is Rs.83,900(ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Hero Karizma R is positioned as a sports tourer, and is equipped with an aerodynamic half-fairing to aid long-distance touring. The bike comes fitted with a wide handlebar and moderately rear-set foot pegs that seat the rider bent slightly forward with the feet placed towards the rear, in a position that offers maximum control during spirited riding while not adversely affecting comfort during everyday usage.

The Hero Karizma R is powered by an air-cooled 223cc single cylinder engine that is tuned for low-end torque, developing 19.2 bhp @ 7500 rpm and 19.35 Nm torque right from 6000rpm. The high-torque output aids the bike to cruise effortlessly at high-speed. A 5-speed constant mesh gearbox is used to transfer power to the rear wheels.

The Hero Karizma R employs telescopic forks at the front and a pair of adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear.

The Hero Karizma R uses a 276mm disc brake at the front and a 130mm drum brake at the rear.

Those looking for a sporty bike that can be used for both city commutes and for long-distance touring may opt for the Hero Karizma R. Stay tuned for the Karizma R review.
