New Hero Karizma ZMR 2013
Hero is coming up the new model of Karizma ZMR.
The new Hero Karizma R 2013 would come with the same twin projector headlamp setup that is found on the new Karizma ZMR 2013. This is definitely a good thing, considering that arch rival Bajaj Pulsar 220 has won a lot of appreciation for its powerful projector headlamps. The new ZMA-R’s fairing seems to be a “quarter-variant” of the new ZMR’s fairing and would house the same large trafficators that can be seen on the new ZMR. Also, unlike the last gen ZMA, the new bike gets fairing mounted ORVMs. The bike also gets new “R Premium Sports” decals for the fairing.
Hero Motocorp has already confirmed that the ZMR facelift would get a more powerful engine. This engine would be the first commercial production model post their technical partnership with US-based Erik Buell Racing (EBR).
The suspension and wheels, however, seem to have been carried over from the last gen model and this means that the bike continues to come with conventional gas charged twin rear shock absorbers, five spoke alloy wheels and disc brake assembly at front and rear.
Both the new ZMR and the new Karizma R are a part of Hero Motocorp’s strategy to cash in on the festive season that is about to commence.
Going by the fact that the bike is mechanically similar to the earlier model, we expect that the price won’t see much of a change.
