Hero Karizma XMR 210: Engine Specs
A brand-new 210cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled 4-valve engine powers the 2023 Karizma XMR. The automaker claims that the sports tourer is the most potent bike in its category, producing 25.15bhp of maximum power at 9,250rpm and 20.4Nm of peak torque at 7,250rpm. The motorcycle goes from 0 to 60km/h in 3.8 seconds. The drivetrain is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox that has a slip-assist clutch as standard equipment to minimise rear wheel lock or possibly engine seizure in the event of sudden downshifting.
Hero Karizma XMR 210: Hardware Details
The motorcycle is built around a brand-new trellis structure that is intended to provide stability at high speeds and accurate handling characteristics. The riding position on a sports tourer must be ergonomically sound and practical for both everyday commutes and extended travel. Consequently, the Karizma XMR is equipped with a set of brand-new, lightweight clip-on handlebars. Surprisingly, the new Xtreme 160R 4V has an upside-down suspension whereas the Karizma has regular front forks. Meanwhile, the rear features a gas-charged mono-shock with a 6-step pre-load adjustment. The Karizma XMR is the manufacturer's flagship model and has the largest front disc brake available. It has 230mm disc brakes in the back and 300mm disc brakes up front. Additionally, the Hero Karizma XMR is the maker's first motorcycle with dual-channel ABS.
