Hero MotoCorp recently took to its social media accounts to share a new teaser hinting at the arrival of a forthcoming product. With the tagline "witness the return of the legend," the teaser alludes to the upcoming launch of the brand-new Karizma XMR 210, which is set to go on sale on August 29. It's a well-kept secret that the next Karizma will be called the Hero Karizma XMR 210. The new Hero Karizma's moniker was confirmed by trademark filings previously this year. This was followed by reports of the bike's test mules and its appearance at a dealer event in May of this year. Leaked patent pictures from earlier this month showed the new Karizma XMR 210, revealing plenty of information about the bike's appearance and specifications. The new Karizma XMR marks the return of the Karizma name after more than three years. Here's all you can expect from the all-new XMR 210 when it comes to specs, features, and more.
Hero Karizma XMR 210: Design
As previously stated, Hero presented the new Karizma XMR 210 during a dealer event when a leaked image of the bike surfaced on the internet, disclosing its bodywork and styling cues. The new Karizma XMR 210 will have a sporty design aesthetic featuring robust bodywork, a muscular fuel tank, raised clip-on handlebars, vibrant paint selections, like the red colour seen in the leaked photograph, a two-piece step-up seat, and a stubby exhaust, according to the leaked image and some prior spy images.
Hero Karizma XMR 210: Engine, Gearbox, and Features
Hero's first liquid-cooled engine, with a displacement of around 210cc and a maximum power output of approximately 25bhp and 30Nm of torque, will propell the new Karizma XMR 210. The engine will be installed on a single-piece, tubular steel frame and is anticipated to come mated with a 6-speed gearbox.
The Karizma XMR 210 will boast several cutting-edge features that will improve the riding experience. A fully digital instrument cluster with Smartphone connectivity is likely to be included in the feature set as well. Clear visibility is ensured by LED headlights and taillights, while rider convenience and safety are enhanced with dual-channel ABS, a hazard light switch, and turn-by-turn navigation.
Hero Karizma XMR 210: Hardware Details
A single-disc layout at both ends, telescopic front forks, and a rear monoshock are possible additions to the new Karizma XMR 210's hardware components. The inclusion of an upside-down fork option, which made its debut with the Hero Xtreme 160R 4V, on the motorcycle would not be surprising, though.
Hero Karizma XMR 210: Expected Price and Competitors
The brand-new Hero Karizma XMR 210 will serve as the firm's flagship fully-faired bike. It is anticipated to cost between Rs 1.60 lakh and Rs 1.90 lakh, ex-showroom. When it launches, the Karizma XMR 210 will compete against models such as the Bajaj Pulsar RS200, the Yamaha R15 V4, the Suzuki Gixxer SF 250, among others.
