SAGMart Reviews on Hero Karizma R

What's Good
Back in 2003, when the Karizma was launched, it was one of those few sports bikes which had a performance engine along with the economy. Following are its good things.

  • Double Barrel Headlights
  • LED Garnish
  • LED tail lamps
  • Cushioned seats
  • Clip-on Handlebars

What's Bad
Hero Karizma R has a good configuration which makes it shine apart from the crowd. However, some mistakes have been made by the manufacturer, which are as follows.

  • Negligible rear support
  • No Mono-Shock suspension
  • Looks not to everyone's taste
  • High maintenance

Power to mileage
Karizma R has got a robust 223cc engine, which has superb raw power to unleash every single pulse of its rider. At the same time, it feels so thirsty and effects the outgo. Following are its few clues.

  • 223cc displacement
  • 19.2 BHP raw power
  • Thirsty Engine
  • 20 to 25 KMPL actual mileage
  • Good Highway performing manners

Handling and riding
The seat height has been an issue for this bike, as it is counted within the category of sports bikes. But keeping the position of the foot rests makes things easier and the bike feels easy to cut through corners. Clip on handlebars add extra comfort to the rider while speeding high. Additional grip is provided by the broad tyres which work efficiently and supports at every bit of it.

Being a high performance bike, Stability is not an issue with Hero Karizma R, but the introduction of some advance equipments would have made it more suitable. Following points are worth considering.

  • Front disc brake
  • Clip on Handlebars
  • Double barrel Headlights
  • Broad tyres

Maintenance issues
Hero Karizma R is the first sports motorbike which is made by an Indian manufacturer. The initial times of its owners spent sleepless nights due to the mileage it produced. Later, some updates have been carried out over the bike which made it favourable to one’s reach, but till then the market has got so many products that Karizma started losing its fans. Maintenance is not a big issue as the manufacturer is Hero Motocorp.

Hero Karizma R is few of those great products which have entered the market like a Bollywood superstar, but started fading with time and better equipped motorbikes in itS own and other segments. It's been many years since this bike has been working efficiently in India. It would be a good choice for performance freaks and quality cautious people.
