The Hero Honda Karizma could well be referred to as a legendary motorcycle on the Indian motorcycling scene. A relaxed long-legged motor with cozy dynamics made it the choice of the sports touring fraternity. It was indeed painful to see the Karizma lose itself in the herd of modern motorcycles. But the motorcycle has brought that old smile back to our faces. Why? Read on!
Mean Green Customs, India has transformed the motorcycle into one stunning creation. Meet “Sliver”- a custom cafe racer built on the Hero Honda Karizma. Every bit on the bodywork seems intricate and proof enough of the thoughts and efforts that has gone in creating the motorcycle. The front suspension is a custom girder forkset that utilizes shocks instead of springs with an extended rake angle giving it a sporty look. The swingarm has been fabricated to ably complement the front end.
The leather seat, racing stripes on the tank, handlebar hugging mirrors embellished with the workshop logo and handlebar mounted LED blinkers- every inch of the motorcycle is a work of art and an absolute eye candy. The rear blinkers are mounted on the pegs giving the rear portion of the motorcycle a clean look.
There has been no tinkering done with the 223cc engine and it continues to crank out a modest 17 bhp of power- but who cares anyways about the power figures. “Sliver” is a desirable object that’s well worth to be on the stands at a studio. Simply STUNNING!
