The Karizma series is returning with a brand new version of its most iconic bike models. The all-new Karizma XMR 210 takes up the mantle as the new premium series of motorcycles for the Karizma line-up of motorcycles. The Karizma series of motorcycles was first introduced in 2003 under a partnership between Honda and Hero MotoCorp, going all through the years until 2019, when it was discontinued because of declining sales. Nevertheless, the all-new Karizma XMR 210 is back after a gap of four years to expand Hero Motocorp’s presence in the premium motorcycle category.
Starting off with the design of the motorcycle, it features aggressive, sporty styling with a modern aesthetic. The bike comes with dual LED projector headlights surrounded by H-shaped LED DRLs, a chiseled fuel tank, LED turn indicators and taillamps, clip-on handlebars, and an adjustable windshield, which is a first in the segment. The motorcycle also has a split layout and a sleek tail section to align with the current modern look of the motorcycle.
The Hero Karizma XMR 210 is a 2023 motorcycle powered by a 210 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. The engine generates 25 horsepower (25.5 PS) of power at 9250 rpm and 20.4 Nm of torque at 7250 rpm. It is paired with a 6-speed transmission. On paper, imbued with all these specifications, the bike has the prospect of being more powerful than the KTM RC 200. The bike is 2055mm in length, 785mm in width, and 810 mm in seat height. It features a 1351mm wheelbase and a 160 mm ground clearance. The bike weighs 163.5 kg.
The new Karizma XMR comes loaded with a plethora of quality-of-life features to make the riding experience smooth and exciting. The bike sports an all-new fully digital instrument cluster, which the company claims is the largest in its class. The instrument cluster will display all the necessary parameters like gear position indicator, date, time, trip, odometer, fuel level, tachometer, speedometer, and many more. The bike also comes equipped with Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation.
While discussing about the suspension duties of the new Karizma XMR 210, it is handled by a telescopic fork at the front and a gas-charged 6-step preload adjustable mono-shock at the rear. The Karizma XMR does miss out on a USD fork, which is available on the new Hero Xtreme 160R 4V. When it comes to the braking duties of the bike, they are addressed by 300 mm front and 230 mm rear disc brakes with dual-channel ABS. The Karizma XMR 210 has a steel trellis frame( the first Hero bike to get one) and a box-section swingarm.
As for the price, it is known that Hero always prices their motorcycles on the more affordable side. So, the upcoming Karizma XMR 210 will also most probably be priced around NRs. 3.80 lakhs. This is just speculation, and nothing is set in stone, but after reviewing the introductory price set in India at INR. 1,72,900, the bike will most likely be priced reasonably. This price range is even cheaper than the Yamaha R15 V4. The Karizma XMR 210 will be going up against the likes of the KTM RC 200, Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, and Bajaj Pulsar RS 2000.
The Hero Karizma XMR marks a watershed moment in the Indian motorcycle market. Because the model carries the Karizma brand's tradition, it has been redesigned with current design features, superior technology, and a potent performance package. The Karizma XMR 210 looks to offer a well-rounded and enticing package, with its aggressive appearance, strong engine specs, unique features like as the movable windscreen and Bluetooth connectivity, and the inclusion of safety-enhancing systems.
