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.
