Hero MotoCorp Begins Deliveries of Karizma XMR 210 After Strong Pre-Bookings
The Hero Karizma XMR 210 features front and rear single disc brakes, marking Hero MotoCorp's debut of a dual-channel ABS system.
In September, Hero MotoCorp, the country's largest two-wheeler manufacturer, launched the Karizma XMR 210 in India. The sportsbike quickly garnered popularity, with an impressive 13,000 reservations for the model. Recently, the company has commenced the deliveries of the Karizma XMR 210, and images of these deliveries are making their way online.
Hero MotoCorp initially introduced the all-new Karizma XMR 210 with a starting price of Rs 1.72 lakh in India. However, this was an introductory price, and it has been raised to Rs 1.79 lakh. The company temporarily halted reservations for the motorcycle, but they will resume soon, with details about the new booking window expected to be disclosed in the near future.
The Karizma XMR 210's launch event featured Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan, who has a long-standing association with the Karizma brand. Hrithik Roshan, known for his endorsement of the original Karizma R, graced the stage during the launch. The Karizma XMR 210 continues the legacy of this iconic name that has held a special place in the Indian motorcycle market for many years.
For the 2023 model year, Hero MotoCorp has built a brand-new motorcycle from the ground up. The Hero Karizma XMR 210 boasts a bold and aggressive design compared to its predecessor. The front fascia is entirely new, featuring all-LED headlights with integrated DRLs and LED turn indicators. The bike also sports an aggressive fairing and prominently displays the XMR logo on the side. It is built on a steel trellis frame.
The Karizma XMR is available in three color options: Iconic Yellow, Turbo Red, and Matte Phantom Black. The 2023 model offers a full digital LCD display with Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation (a segment first), and an adjustable windscreen, adding to the riding experience.
Under the hood, the Hero Karizma XMR 210 is powered by a new 210 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, marking Hero MotoCorp's first liquid-cooled engine. This engine generates 25.15 bhp of power and 20.4 Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. To enhance riding comfort, the front suspension employs a telescopic fork, while the rear suspension features a preloaded adjustable monoshock absorber. The bike is equipped with single disc brakes at the front and rear, and it's the first Hero MotoCorp model to incorporate a dual-channel ABS system.
The commencement of deliveries for the Karizma XMR 210 comes after the model's impressive pre-bookings, demonstrating the continued enthusiasm for Hero MotoCorp's offerings in the Indian motorcycle market.
