Hero Karizma 250 revealed in spy shots
Hero MotoCorp is working towards launching a 250cc version of their Karizma ZMR motorcycle. To be on display at the 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi/Greater Noida, the bike was spied on test in Gurgaon recently. Seen in extensive camouflage here, it is believed that the bike is still in development stage.
The 250 Karizma ZMR will receive a boost in power and performance as it comes into take on the likes of Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS, TVS Apache RTR180 besides the KTM Duke 200 and Honda CBR250R. The upcoming model was seen with major similarities borrowed from the existing ZMR though tail lights bear a new design in the form of separate units and not in a single piece.
There is also a split seat as against a single seat while the rear end has been raised for no apparent reason resulting in a change in riding position. Rear tyres are also larger while the ZMR sports twin shock absorbers. Where engine is concerned, Hero MotoCorp is expected to give the ZMR250 a Honda 250cc engine which is also seen on the CBR250R offering the same 25 bhp and 22 Nm torque.
