Hero Karizma ZMR 1,07,100

The New Hero Karizma ZMR is a performance bike from the stables of Hero MotoCorp. It is powered by an air-cooled 223cc single cylinder engine. Unlike the Hero Karizma R which uses a carburettor for fuelling, it uses Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-Fi) technology. The improvements include a better throttle response, consistent mileage and there is no hassle of operating a regulator valve as in carburetted bikes.

As with any bike that uses fuel-injection, the bike comes with a 16bit Electronic Control Unit and a bevy of sensors, such as a bank angle sensor, which cuts fuel supply to the engine if the bike exceeds a certain lean angle, and sensors to detect throttle position, intake air-temperature, engine oil temperature, crank position, oxygen level and manifold absolute pressure. Another technology used is Idle Air Control Valve (IACV), which automatically ensures idle stability in all altitudes.

The Hero Karizma ZMR comes with equipped with large-diameter front and rear disc brakes, an aerodynamic full-body fairing, fully digital multi-functional speedo console, electric start, alloy wheels, tubeless tyres, and LED tail-lamp as standard.

Mileage, Price & Colours of the Hero Karizma ZMR

The Karizma ZMR delivers an average mileage of 51 kmpl. It is priced at Rs 1,01,700 (ex-showroom, Delhi), and is available in Candy Blazing Red, Panther Black, Spotlight White and Vibrant Orange colours.

Design and Ergonomics

The bike is positioned as a sports tourer, and is equipped with an aerodynamic full-fairing to aid long-distance touring. The bike comes fitted with clip-on handlebars 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.

Engine and Gearbox

The Hero Karizma ZMR is powered by an air-cooled 223cc single cylinder engine that is tuned for low-end torque, developing 17.6 bhp @ 7000 rpm and 18.35 Nm torque right from 6000rpm. The high-torque nature of the engine also helps in cruising at high-speed. A 5-speed constant mesh gearbox is used to transfer power to the rear wheels.


The bike employs telescopic forks at the front and a pair of adjustable gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. Although they use hydraulic fluid, gas-charged shock absorbers are better than pure-hydraulic units, as they improve the damping characteristics by reducing the build-up of air-bubbles in the fluid, helping to retain its optimum viscosity.


It uses a 276mm disc brake at the front and a 240mm disc brake at the rear.
