Earlier today, we posted an image revealing how the new Hero Karizma ZMR 2013 would look like and now, we have to got to learn few more things about the refreshed Hero MotoCorp flagship.

As can be seen in the images above, the new Hero Karizma ZMR 2013 sports a twin projector headlamp setup. Our friends would know how we can’t stop appreciating arch rival Bajaj’s Pulsar 220 for its brilliant set of projector headlamps and it seems like ZMR too would have an equally effective pair of headlights.

The front fairing also houses somewhat large trafficators and the bike has a pair of body colored ORVMs.

The new ZMR will boast of a rather rakish tail end. The ZMR will come with split seats and gets a pair of new split grab-rails too. Also, the bike will come with a new rear registration plate bracket, which is much like the one on the R15 V2.0.

Another image that you see here reveals that the ZMR will continue to sport the same instrument console that is found in the pre-facelift ZMR. This speedo console seems to have been inspired from that of the Honda VFR and looks pretty upmarket.


Hero Motocorp has already confirmed that the ZMR facelift would get a more powerful engine. This engine would be the first commercial production model post their technical partnership with US-based Erik Buell Racing (EBR).

Talking about the engine, Mr. Munjal has said, “There is a lot of innovation happening in our own R&D and we will bring it to the market through some of the products we will launch. We have applied for patents for those innovations. This is showcasing our capability. We will be launching the new Karizma variants which are redesigned and the engine made more powerful with our partner EBR. This is the first commercial production model in which they have played a big part in development.”

As can be seen in the images here, the new ZMR would look completely different (and bigger) than the current model and as seen above, would come with a twin-headlight asssembly, an all new fairing that remotely resembles those of some superbikes of the yore, new decals, sportier rear end, new seat, and a new exhaust pipe.

The suspension and wheels, however, seem to have been carried over from the last gen model and this means that the bike continues to come with conventional gas charged twin rear shock absorbers, five spoke alloy wheels and disc brake assembly at front and rear.

Both the new ZMR and the new Karizma are a part of Hero Motocorp’s strategy to cash in on the festive season where it would be introducing 15 new models- majority of which would be launched between the months of October to December 2013.

    i didn't think it was possible but that is the ugliest bike from the hero stable ever !

  8. Dilip Nandhagopal says:

    reminds me of decades old full fairing bikes . no where near as modern as r15 and unfit to even compare to the new pulsar 375 !

  9. The rear is so big that the distance of the tyre and rear mudguard can be used to store a spare tyre :-) The R1 is better then this ,looks like they made a mix of Pulsar , mopads, and dont know what,the Previous ZMR is better then this and alo the Karizma Sports is better then this.Better buy an Enfiled instead of this Alien design.

  10. Jubin Jacob says:

    The two HMs (Hindustan Motors and Hero Motors) together are playing a game to find out who will do the more stupid thing. Wish someone bomb the Hero plant before they let this ugly creature out in our streets… :/
