With a storied history that largely overshadows a minor setback in 2014, the Karizma nameplate has earned its place as a legend. The previous iterations of Karizma motorcycles stood as exquisite marvels, holding an esteemed status as the aspirational rides of their era. 

A sneak peek at the new Karizma’s side view has already made people excited. But what’s really making everyone curious is the first-time reveal of the motorcycle’s headlight. This was done through a special preview on social media.

The sides of the motorcycle feature stylish boomerang-shaped LED daytime running lights (DRLs), and there are four distinct slots designated for the headlamps, 2 for the low beam and another 2 for the high beam, most likely. Unlike the previous R15 models, this headlamp setup is a single, unified unit rather than being split. While a brief teaser video provides a close-up view, the final appearance in production remains uncertain. 

The new Karizma model features an engine with a displacement of around 210cc, signaling a substantial increase in power output compared to the current 200cc engine found in the Xpulse. This iteration may also incorporate advanced technologies like liquid cooling, aiming to amplify its sporty credentials and live up to the esteemed Karizma name. 

With an anticipated peak power of approximately 25 PS, it positions itself in a competitive range akin to the Pulsar RS200, making it a strong contender in that category. Furthermore, pricing is projected to align more closely with Bajaj’s offering, likely falling within the range of Rs 1.60 lakh to Rs 1.70 lakh, strategically positioning it just below the RS200 which is priced at Rs 1.72 lakh.

The full faired motorcycle produces 25.5 PS of peak power at 9250 rpm and 20.4 Nm of max torque at 7250 rpm from its 210cc, 4-valve DOHC, Liquid Cooled engine which is a first for Hero! That means it produces more power and torque than the KTM RC200. This is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. All of this is mounted on a Trellis frame – which is again a first for Hero.

The elevated RPM figures strongly indicate that the engine is designed to rev at high speeds, while the inclusion of raised handlebars and the overall rider geometry aligns with the characteristics of a sports tourer, reminiscent of the original Karizma’s design philosophy. Emphasizing its assertive demeanor, the front end of the motorcycle is equipped with dual LED headlamps that contribute to its aggressive stance. The overall design language follows suit, exuding a sense of novelty and precision.
