Hero Honda will launch a new version of the Karizma soon. The 2011 Karizma will now feature new colours, white indicators, yellow painted speedometer with Karizma written on it, modified handle bar (no clipons!), lowered handle bar, new engine cowl, Hero Honda badge on handle bar, all black theme (black chain cover and saree guard) tubeless tyres, maintenance free battery, and new graphics. Interestingly some of the features have been borrowed from the Karizma ZMR and the new Karizma no longer boasts of R anywhere on it. The new Karizma is expected to be launched in the first week of January.
