Hero MotoCorp has brought back the iconic Karizma name. The 2023 Karizma XMR 210 has been launched in India with a special introductory price of INR 1,72,800 ex-showroom.

History of the Karizma brand

It was back in 2023 that Hero Honda launched the Karizma brand. The motorcycle was an instant hit and over the years developed an iconic cult status. In 2007, the company launched an updated version of the same. However, after some time, Hero and Honda split up and it was Hero MotoCorp that had the lead. The company launched a new version in 2014, but sadly it could not make the mark as the original one.

The new Karizma comes with a lot of new features. Primarily, it gets updated styling and sporty design. Towards the front, there is an aggressive looking LED headlamp, LED DRLs and a small wind deflector. The bike comes with sporty handlebars and rearview and a large fairing. The Karizma also gets prominent graphics and a meaty fuel tank.

Hero has offered split-type seats on the Karizma, along with a compact exhaust. The bike also gets a digital instrument cluster and is offered with mobile phone connectivity and features like turn-by-turn navigation.

Suspension duties are handled by 37mm diameter front forks and a rear monoshock with 6-step adjustable pre-load.

This new Karizma XMR will offer a sports tourer riding stance, and not completely aggressive and committed stance like the KTM RC series. This new motorcycle will surely harp a lot about performance, thanks to the liquid-cooled engine, but will most likely be positioned as a comfortable tourer as well. The Karizma has always been touring focussed, but this time, it does look more sporty than ever. With increased performance, the Karizma XMR 210 could now feel at home at track days as well.
