Curiosity killed the cat or so they say and thats quite similar with the Hero Honda Karizma. But alas Hero Honda has finally woken up and launched the much awaited FI version of the popular tourer. On paper everything looks quite pointless so we will reserve our comments till we get our hands on the machine. The new Karizma ZMR FI is priced at Rs. 91,000/- (ex-showroom, Delhi) which is not cheap by any means. The bike retains the same 223cc engine but gets fuel injection which increases the power by .6 BHP to 17.6 BHP @ 7000 RPM. Maximum torque of 18.50NM is .15NM over the carb version. Hero Honda claim a top speed of 135kmph 126kmph which is 1 up on the ZMA.


The new Karizma ZMR FI gets the following changes over its predecessor : –

  • Full Fairing
  • New headlamp and LED tail lamps (from the CBZ Xtreme)
  • Split clip on handle bars
  • Fairing mounted rear view mirrors
  • Split rear grab rails
  • New Colors
  • Programmable Fuel Injection Technology
  • Oil Cooler
  • Bank Angel Sensor (cuts fuel supply if the bike tips over)
  • New rear mud guard
  • Fairing mounted front indicators
  • New Body Graphics (Yawn)
