Hero MotoCorp has announced an increase in the price of the Karizma XMR 210 by Rs 7,000 from October 1, 2023. It was launched at an introductory ex-showroom price of Rs 1,72,900, which will be effective till September 30, 2023. Interestingly, the new price of Hero Karizma is still Rs 3,000 less than the earlier announced regular price.
Interested customers can book the new Karizma at an introductory price by paying an initial deposit of Rs 3,000. The booking window for the updated price will commence in the near future.
At the heart of the 2023 Hero Karizma XMR is an all-new 210cc, 4-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine that produces 25.5PS of peak power at 9250 rpm and 20.4Nm of max torque at 7250 rpm.
The bike comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox with an assist & slipper clutch, which decreases rear-wheel skidding during aggressive downshifting and reduces clutch lever effort during gear shifts.
Hero has underpinned the new-gen Karizma XMR on a steel trellis frame, which is the first for any Hero bike. The trellis frames are generally light in weight and have a high strength-to-weight ratio, thus providing excellent structural rigidity.
Regarding the suspension duties, the bike gets a conventional telescopic fork up front and a 6-step preload adjustable monoshock at the rear.
For braking, it features 300mm and 240mm discs at the front and rear, respectively, assisted by a dual-channel Antilock Braking System (ABS).
Design and Features
The latest iteration of the iconic Karizma still includes a full fairing, albeit with a more aggressive and modern design. For features, it is packed with an adjustable windshield, dual projector LED headlamp with H-shaped LED DRL, an LED taillight, clip-on-handlebars, sportier split seat, spoked alloy wheels, illuminated switchgear, USB charging port and digital rider’s display with Bluetooth connectivity & turn-by-turn navigation support.
The 2023 Hero Karizma XMR 210 locks horns with the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 (Rs 1.92 – 2.06 lakh) and Bajaj Pulsar RS200 (Rs 1.72 lakh).
