Hero Karizma ZMR got zero buyers in February 2019, hinting for the need of permanent discontinuation of the second generation motorcycle. Even the premium motorcycle segment registered a few units for individual products in the same month. Reintroduced with a BS4-compliant engine, Hero Karizma was expected to fetch numbers close to Honda CBR250R.

As Honda is also pushing their quarter-litre machine for no reason, it’s high time for brands to know that their products have aged well. The need for an upgrade is pretty visible in Karizma and CBR250R as both carry the same design as seen in their launch in 2014 and 2011 respectively.

The Karizma was a bestseller in its first generation design, notably for the R variant instead of the ZMR. Even the first generation R and ZMR happened to be the flagship performance products with Pulsar 220F on the closest edge and CBR250R on the upper side.

The influence of EBR design for the next-generation models proved fatal for the brand and left them struggling with 100-125cc commuters till date. Fortunately, Hero Xtreme 200R is gaining traction among rivals and with equal hope, Hero MotoCorp is almost ready with the new xPulse. The 200cc platform is not just affordable, but also equally challenging for the rivals.

Hero Karizma ZMR Specs

  • 223cc, 4-stroke Engine
  • 1-cylinder, Fuel Injection, Oil Cooled
  • Max. Power – 20 BHP @ 8000 rpm
  • Max. Torque – 19.7 NM @ 6500 rpm

  • Overall Width – 805 mm
  • Overall Height – 1190 mm
  • Ground Clearance – 145 mm

Hero xPulse 200 is almost ready to have an official launch event in India. The powerful yet lightweight adventure machine is the only hope for riders with a budget of around INR 1.25 lakh (on-road) as all other adventure motorcycles are available with an on-road price tag of INR 2 lakh and above. The recent shots are taken from a video where the professional off-road rider CS Santosh is seen pushing the machine to its limits. The upcoming xPulse is called as the worthy successor to the Impulse, using the more powerful 200cc engine to end the limitations that arrived with the 150cc Impulse.

Not just the xPulse 200, Hero Motocorp also showcased the 200T variant with alloy wheels and touring-specific built. As both the models were spotted at various occasions with test number plates, the time has come when fans can cheer for their favourite upcoming product at the launch event. The exhaust on the regular xPulse 200 is placed higher for a better off-road riding feel. The Red motorcycle spotted here looks like a factory-custom model with the removal of unnecessary parts that add to the weight quotient while competing on a closed off-road event.

The 200cc engine on the Hero xPulse 200 may be good for 18.4 HP and 17.1 Nm as seen on the Xtreme 200R. The huge front wheel with wider than ever rear-wheel confirms that tough off-road riding will no more be a tough task. As the launch period of xPulse comes near, the brand will be busy preparing the dealerships for a new genre of customers that were much smaller in number when Impulse was sold in India. The seat height of 825mm may still be a problem for a big chunk of Indian riders. On the other hand, the 190mm of suspension travel will be the most important attraction point for the buyers.

Must-Know Facts About 2019 Hero xPulse 200: With the official images for the Hero XPulse 200 released, some of the facts about the upcoming adventure bike from the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer have become clearer while some new facts have come to light as well. This upcoming bike will be the successor to the Impulse 150 which, even though was a hit in the Indian market, has been discontinued in the country.

The sales of the Impulse 150 was extremely low due to the underpowered engine of the bike. Hero has sought to overcome this problem by bringing in their all-new 200cc engine powered bike which is likely to be priced under the Rs 1 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) mark when launched. Here are 5 quick facts about the 200cc Hero xPulse.

5 Must-Know Facts About 2019 Hero xPulse 200

1) Design and Style: The Hero XPulse 200 features a tall stance which stands out. Unlike most bikes, it has a large front wheel, and the headlamp is a classic round-shaped one and from the official images, it is clear that it would come equipped with LED DRLs. There is a luggage rack on the rear end of the Hero XPulse 200 for long-distance touring. The bike will feature a digital instrument cluster along with an engine kill switch.

2) Safety: The upcoming bike from Hero will possess a windscreen upfront and knuckle guards on the handlebars to protect the rider in case of a fall. For the lovers of off-roading, there is an added engine bash plate to protect the oil sump. Although there are disc brakes on both ends, it will also feature a single-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System).

3) Engine and Transmission: The 2019 Hero XPulse 200 will have a 200cc single-cylinder air-cooled fuel-injected engine which will allow the bike to have a maximum power of 18.4 HP and a maximum torque figure of 17.1 Nm. This engine will be coupled with a 5-speed transmission. The engine on the XPulse 200 will be tuned differently from the one that will be there on the Xtreme 200R.

4) Wheels and Suspension: The upcoming bike will come equipped with a long-travel suspension with 190mm travel for the telescopic forks and a 21-inch wheel on the front end. The rear end of the bike will feature a long-travel suspension with 180mm travel for the monoshock suspension and a 19-inch rear wheel. This would result in an excellent ground clearance of 220mm.

5) Expected Price & Key Rivals: Hero xPulse 200 is expected to be priced around INR 1 lakh (ex-showroom) and at this price point, the bike has no direct rivals. The closest possible adventure bike in terms of price is Royal Enfield Himalayan @ INR 1.80 Lakh.

Latest Update: Hero Motocorp has also made the new xPulse 200T official along with the regular adventure version. The new variant will be available with alloy wheels, lower placed exhaust, and a different seat. The brand is expected to place the spoke wheel xPulse at a higher point as the T variant comes with regular tires in comparison to the thick tread unit on the adventure version. Hero xPulse and xPulse 200T are expected to launch in India next month.

Hero Karizma ZMR registered just 4 units in the month of January 2019. The brand once shocked everyone with the launch event for Karizma ZMR V2 in India, introducing the same old design that almost made fans cry after the discontinuation of the older design. It came back with INR 1.08 lakh for single and INR 1,10,500 for the dual tone shade. Here is a complete sales report for the Karizma ZMR for the last few months of its existence.

Hero Karizma ZMR Sales Report

  • May 2018 – 17 units
  • June 2018 – 12 units
  • July 2018 – 14 units
  • August 2018 – 10 units
  • September 2018 – 11 units
  • October 2018 – 0 units
  • November 2018 – 4 units
  • December 2018 – 4 units
  • January 2019 – 4 units
Combined Sales (May 2018 – Jan 2019): 76 units

The numbers are not even considered, taking into account that similarly priced bikes are good for five-digit sales number and Hero MotoCorp has more than 6000 touch points across the country. They have sold more than 80-million units, consisting mostly of commuter segment bikes like Splendor and Passion. Karizma was once the bestseller of its segment and now, the position is lost to Bajaj Pulsar 220F.

2018 Hero Karizma ZMR
Hero Karizma ZMR Dual-Tone Edition

Karizma is powered by a 223cc, single-cylinder engine, producing 20 BHP of maximum power at 8000 rpm and 19.7 Nm at 6500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The model available now is equipped with oil-cooler and fuel injection as standard. They should have introduced the R variant alongside this ZMR, offering buyers with the same sort of power and a reduced price tag of around INR 90,000.

Karizma will witness a complete overhaul in the next two years, most probably bringing the bigger 300cc engine for direct competition to Apache RR 310. Also, most brands will move away from the existing segments as mandatory ABS rule will result in a further rise in effective pricing. Hero MotoCorp will focus on weight reduction and design enhancement, taking cues from the HX250R concept that never saw the daylight.

Hero Honda Splendor, the most loved commuter of India of all time can be seen here in the cruiser guise by Full Throttle Customs. The modifier has worked extensively on the Splendor as no component other than the engine, alloy wheels and suspension looks similar to the stock motorcycle. The fuel tank has been replaced with a peanut design tank while seat now flows in a different design than the thin stock unit. It could have been made neat by using the matching cover to the headlight casing. The alloy wheels are available with matching pinstripes while the same shade can also be found on handlebar levers.

The exposed frame is compensated by the leather bag to some extent but still, the small engine casing is visible through the empty area. The side panels have been replaced with the custom FTC branded panels while the rear now comes with a wide tire and a different fender than the standard version. The black pods from the console were replaced with a single chrome pod while indicators are now different with typical arrow signals in them. The front tire stays the same as stock Spendor and thus, the plain pattern comes into action. The motorcycle retains the rear suspension components with stock covers from the Hero Honda Splendor.

The motorcycle is powered by a 97.2cc, single cylinder engine, producing 8.2 HP at 8000 rpm and 8.05 Nm at 5000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The 109 kg motorcycle seems to lose some weight here as the front fender of the Splendor is also seen in a chopped form. The Spendor can be had in either the stock Plus variant or the slightly modern Pro variant in India.

Those looking for the 125cc option can get their hands on the Super Splendor. The stock Splendor range starts from INR 50,860 and comes with integrated braking system as standard. According to Full Throttle Customs, the approximate modification cost of this Hero Honda Splendor is INR 60,000. You can contact the modifier for further details and inquiries.

Hero Xtreme 200R vs TVS Apache RTR 200 (Quick Comparison): Xtreme 200R, the recently introduced flagship street fighter from Hero MotoCorp, is a value for money gem in itself. Who would have imagined that 2019 will see an ABS-equipped bike from the 200cc segment for INR 89,900? Still, the term became a reality through this impressive machine and challenged both TVS Apache RTR 200 and Bajaj Pulsar NS200 in a single go. TVS benefits from two major points, one being the inclusion of a slipper clutch and other, the dual-channel ABS. Hero MotoCorp stays on the other edge and attracts buyers with more concern regarding pricing and commuter-oriented use.

Hero Xtreme 200R
Hero Xtreme 200R

Apache RTR 200 is powered by a 197.75cc oil-cooled engine. The output of 20.5 HP is still high in comparison to just 18.4 HP from the Xtreme 200R. The torque value on Xtreme 200R is also 1 Nm lower than its closest competitor. The price difference of ABS-equipped variants is INR 21,000 while base RTR 200 is more expensive by around INR 7500. Apache RTR 200 is definitely a better-looking street-specific approach in motorcycling in comparison to the Xtreme 200R with regular looks. Here is a quick spec comparison between the Hero Xtreme 200R and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V.

Hero Xtreme 200R vs Bajaj Pulsar NS200: Hero Motocorp’s entry into the 200cc segment with a price tag that changed the way people look at this segment of motorcycling was worth praising. Earlier, buyers could only get their hands on a 150-160cc premium streetfighter for this amount of price. Not just that, those looking forward to Honda CB Hornet 160R or Gixxer 155 with ABS had to spend more.

Hero Xtreme 200R
Hero Xtreme 200R

Xtreme 200R is using an air-cooled, carburettor fed 199.6cc engine, producing 18.4 HP at 8000 rpm and 17.1 Nm at 6500 rpm. The wet weight of 148 kg declares it powerful than a similarly priced option but when compared to the right competitor, it may feel underpowered by a tremendous margin. The motorcycle in comparison is Bajaj Pulsar NS200, using a refined 199.5cc, liquid cooled and carburettor fed engine.

Bajaj Pulsar NS200
Bajaj Pulsar NS200

The price difference between both ABS equipped options is INR 22,000 and that, without any question, comes as the biggest drawback of Pulsar NS200. The 23.17 BHP engine is one great option for Indian streets but, this difference may not be justified. Both bikes will have a different fan base but, Hero MotoCorp has got a firm reason to bring Bajaj buyers into their stable. Here is a quick comparison between Bajaj Pulsar NS200 and Hero Xtreme 200R.

Yamaha FZS V3 vs Hero Xtreme 200R: The quick comparison between Yamaha FZS V3 and Hero Xtreme 200R can help you understand the difference between product placement by India’s two high-selling brand names. Xtreme 200R is built on the value for money mindset as maximum riders prefer conventional components with less emphasis on minor performance enhancements. It uses a carburettor setup, 37mm front forks, and 130mm rear tire. On the other hand, Yamaha is using fuel injection, 140-section rear tire and thick 41mm forks with better handling than most other bikes around the segment.

Still, the price difference of INR 7,100 is enough to push many buyers in the Xtreme 200R’s direction. The motorcycle features 17.1 Nm of torque and thus, relaxed riding on the Xtreme 200R is way ahead of the FZS V3’s potential. The design is truly a personal factor as many consider getting regular sports commuter design lines instead of the streetfighter look of the FZS V3. Here is a specification comparison for both the bikes.

Hero Karizma ZMR is showing no signs of a comeback as the sales report for December 2018 listed the same among the worst selling products with just 4 units registered during the 31-day period. In comparison to the Karizma, Bajaj Pulsar 220F registered 3884 units. Hero Karizma is awaiting the third generation update as the present model is designed on the lines of EBR styling. The full faired design looks more like a track-specific motorcycle from the front while rear section proves as the weak point for the Karizma. The first generation model was great in terms of design. Here is a complete sales report for Hero Karizma ZMR since its relaunch.

Karizma ZMR Sales Report

  • May 2018 – 17 units
  • June 2018 – 12 units
  • July 2018 – 14 units
  • August 2018 – 10 units
  • September 2018 – 11 units
  • October 2018 – 0 units
  • November 2018 – 4 units
  • December 2018 – 4 units

Combined Sales (May-Dec): 72 units

Karizma ZMR registered a total of just 72 units from the day it was relaunched in India. The engine still proves its worth with stress-free riding in all conditions. October 2018 was the worst month from Karizma as the score went down to zero. The comeback is the worst step from Hero and thus, they need to reconsider their strategy for selling a flagship model. The most powerful motorcycle may get an engine switch on the third generation model, with their 200cc engine getting a good response from the buyers. Also, the average of 9 units per month is worst for India’s No.1 brand in terms of sales volume.

Karizma ZMR Key Specs

  • Displacement – 223 cc
  • Maximum Power – 20 BHP @ 8000 rpm
  • Maximum Torque – 19.7 NM @ 6500 rpm
  • Number of Cylinders – 1
  • Number of Gears – 5
  • Seat Height – 810 mm
  • Ground Clearance – 145 mm
  • Kerb/Wet Weight – 157 kg
  • Fuel Tank Capacity – 15.3 litres
  • Top Speed – 129 kmph
