Read about Hero Honda Karizma bike review. Hero Honda Karizma motorcycle is a top-end motorcycle in India.
Hero Honda Karizma is a top-end
bike from the Hero Honda stable and targets the
niche section of customers that prefer performance
Karizma comes with a 223cc single cylinder, air-cooled, four stroke engine that packs a maximum power of 17bhp at 7000rpm. Apart from breaking the 200cc barrier, the bike breaks fresh grounds in the acceleration front. Karizma conquers the four-second barrier for zero to sixty kph, doing it 3.8 seconds.
On the styling front, Karizma draws inspiration from Honda's cult VFR 800, the legendary and largest selling superbike from the Japanese giant. Striking similarities exist in the alloy die-cast wheels, the tailpiece, the front indicators, the fairing, the silencer unit, seat, panel shapes and instrument binnacle.
The Karizma comes with factory-fitted mag wheels and the long wheelbase at 1355mm provides stability to the bike. The motorcycle has a top speed of 125kph and performs commendably at speeds around 100kph. The Karizma is equipped with a massive 15-litre fuel tank (FT) with a 2-litre reserve.
The Karizma ensures excellent braking with the 276mm disc up front (largest so far) and the 130mm rear drum brakes. The mag wheels give a very un-cluttered look to the rear wheel.
