Hero Karizma XMR Latest Update

Hero MotoCorp has launched the all-new Karizma XMR at Rs 1,82,900 (ex-showroom) and its introductory price of Rs 1,72,900 makes it even cheaper than the Yamaha R15 V4. Check out the bike in our launch story here. Also, check out the new motorcycle in 10 detailed images here. Wondering about the differences between the new and the old Hero Honda Karizma? Here's our explainer.

The new Karizma XMR is the flagship Hero bike featuring many firsts. It is the successor to the OG icon, the Hero Karizma that helped in rejuvenating the leisure biking segment in India, at an affordable price point. 


The Hero Karizma XMR is priced at Rs 1,82,900 and also gets an introductory price tag of Rs 1,72,900 (all ex-showroom India). It is available in three colour options: Iconic Yellow, Matte Phantom Black and Turbo Red. Bookings are open for a refundable token of Rs 3,000.


The all-new Karizma XMR gets an LCD instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation. It also gets an illuminated, premium-looking switchgear. The headlight setup consists of dual LED projector headlights surrounded by H-shaped LED DRLs. Dual-channel ABS (a first for a production Hero bike) comes as standard on the motorcycle. And oh, it also gets an adjustable windshield, which is a first in the segment. The raised clip-on handlebars should make the bike comfortable enough for touring.


Powering Hero’s new flagship motorcycle is an all-new 210cc, DOHC, 4-valve liquid-cooled (which is a first for a Hero bike), single-cylinder engine producing 25.5PS at 9,250rpm and 20.4Nm at 7,250rpm. This makes the bike more powerful than the KTM RC 200 and the Bajaj Pulsar RS200! It comes paired with a 6-speed gearbox and slipper and assist clutch. 

Suspension & Brakes

Suspension duties are taken care of by a telescopic fork at the front and a gas-charged 6-step preload adjustable monoshock at the rear. Considering the hero Xtreme 160R 4V now gets a USD fork, this feature is a big miss on the Karizma XMR, though. 

Braking duties are taken care of by a 300mm front (with an axial caliper) and 230mm rear disc brakes (both petal discs. The Karizma XMR has a steel trellis frame (the first Hero bike to get one) and a box-section swingarm. The wheelbase stands at 1,351mm, seat height at 810mm, ground clearance at 160mm and gets a kerb weight of 163.5kg. The fuel tank capacity is 11 litres. 


The all-new Hero Karizma XMR will rival the likes of the Bajaj Pulsar RS200, TVS Apache RTR 310 and the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, with the KTM RC 200 being a sportier alternative.

Karizma XMR Expert Review

In 2003, Hero Honda produced India’s first 200cc plus sports bike, and the result was - The Karizma. Back then, there was nothing like the Karizma in the market, which made it a legendary offering. Now after 20 years, Hero MotoCorp has launched the iconic moniker in an all-new avatar called Karizma XMR. But does the new bike have what it takes to be a legend? Let’s find out as we tell you what we liked and disliked about the Hero Karizma XMR.



With a brand new liquid-cooled 210cc engine, the Hero Karizma XMR will have you grinning through your teeth. Sure, it’s not a 250cc or a 300cc motor, but the refinement and smoothness of this engine is a job well done. Additionally, the motor is pretty peppy and exciting as well.

It might not be as exciting under the 5000rpm rev range, however, beyond that, the motor has a strong punch and delivers a good performance. It is also quite tractable at lower speeds, in higher gears. So riding it in the city is not an issue either.

Is it vibey though? Not in our experience, you see the Karizma XMR can sustain speeds of 130kmph in sixth gear with just a slight buzz of the foot pegs and fuel tank. But that is not the case for everyone, I’ll get back to that later.

Ride quality

Considering that the Karizma XMR is Hero’s flagship bike, we expected it to come equipped with a USD fork. However, the conventional telescopic fork and preload-adjustable monoshock do a pretty good job of offering a lovely riding experience. The excellent suspension tuning ensures the rider's comfort even speedbumps and sharp potholes as well.


Talking about comfort, the Hero Karizma XMR retains the OG bike’s DNA. While the bike seems quite sporty, the riding posture is not so committed and features a raised clip-on handlebar, and slightly rear set footpegs. This along with its cushiony seat will ensure that long rides on this bike are super comfy. Also, while the pillion seat is a bit tall to hop on, it too, is quite comfortable and has the right amount of firmness.


The Hero Karizma XMR looks fresh and stunning, there’s no two ways about it. The sharp and sleek fairing along with an aggressive body design makes for a really sporty and premium-looking motorcycle. And the bright colour options increase its appeal even further, especially in that iconic Karizma yellow.



In terms of braking, the Hero Karizma XMR lacks initial bite and could have been better. Apart from that, the progression and overall braking performance on the bike is quite decent.


Not so sporty handling

It sure looks very sporty but doesn’t ride that sporty. Don’t get me wrong, the Karizma XMR is an excellent handler in the city and at higher speeds. But, the plush suspension and the MRF rubber don’t give you enough confidence to push the bike hard on corners and curves. Especially when you compare it with rivals - the Yamaha R15 V4 and KTM RC200.


Once again, Karizma is Hero’s flagship bike but features not a TFT console, but an LCD unit. Sure it does get a clean layout, smartphone connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation, but the monochrome console just feels a bit dated. Additionally, viewing the console under harsh sunlight can be really bothersome.

Inconsistent build

Now the bikes we got to ride were pretty neat in terms of engine refinement, build quality and more. But that is not the same case with all the models. For example, a few of our peers from other publications, got bikes with really vibey engines and some with build quality issues like flimsy switchgear, visor and more. We do hope that this same consistency issue does not prevail in the final products that are received by the customers.


So finally what the Hero Karizma XMR is, is a great beginner sport bike that strikes the perfect balance between sportiness and comfort. And  with an introductory price tag of Rs 1,72,900 (ex-showroom Delhi), it is more affordable than its primary competitors — the KTM RC 200 and the Yamaha R15 V4.

But is it as iconic as the original Karizma? Well, the OG bike was a segment starter, whereas the XMR is just a step up for Hero into the premium bikes segment. So only time will tell if this one turns out to be as legendary as the OG bike.
