Default Karizma R in words of HH... Hilarious!

Guys,

Its ROTFLMAO material.

Came across this on Motorcyclist At Large
THE NEW KARIZMA
Karizma has been the most aspirational motorcycle in the country, and it enjoys a die-hard patronage with young bike enthusiasts for a simple reason – unmatched performance coupled with unparalleled styling and the assurance of the tried and tested Hero Honda equity.
Simply put, Karizma with its 225cc of raw power and commanding street presence is nothing less than a fantasy come true for young adults who yearn to have a very powerful bike with international styling and comfort and riding safety.
Keeping this sentiment in mind, Hero Honda has now launched the ‘New Karizma’. Karizma, in its new avatar, comes with swashbuckling new looks and international styling which will drive every young and passionate biker in the fast lane of power biking.
Some of the most striking features of the New Karizma include the following: -
  • A striking new Karizma logo which represents the bike’s cutting edge imagery of being racy
  • International styling which includes state-of-the art graphics with a pronounced ‘R’ on the tank and an asymmetrical one on the visor in keeping with the latest international trend
  • A stunning feature of this bike is its new sporty under-cowl which makes the bike look more powerful and mean
  • The digital console of the bike comes with a night vision, which illuminates the console in a bright neon yellow color to reveal the speedometer which stands out in the dark to form a stunning contrast
  • The engine now sports an exciting matt-axis grey color which makes it look very rugged and ready to take on anything
  • What’s more, the New Karizma comes with a special edition version which has a set of racy-red mag wheels which make it the most stunning bike on Indian roads.
  • Other notable features in the bike are the red rear suspensions, stylish fender with sizzling graphics, alloy wheels and front disc brakes as a standard fitment, powerful multi-reflector headlight with two stunning remote lamps for that added beam, Integrated clear lamp tail light to make sure every other bike keeps safe distance.
Here’s a bike which comes fully loaded with impeccable styling and unmatched performance which reiterates Hero Honda’s continuous commitment to offer the best biking experience across diverse consumer segments.
Coupled with its Brand Ambassador, hot-shot Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan, Karizma’s personality is all about: ‘Cool & Confidence’

- I think the HH Copywriter should be nominated for "Most creative writer of the year" Award!


Note from Support Staff:

Please do not quote a long post in your reply. Makes for difficult reading.

What's even funnier than this is the Karizma ad in which Hrithik roshan out accelerates a bunch of goons on his karizma , while splattering them with mud & in the end, the bike is all clean and shiny, I mean, how unreal can u get?
Must have been scripted by the same HH copyrighter as above!

When will HH realise that a bunch of stickers and fibre parts and of course, Hrithik's muscles isn't enough to sell bikes??

Pulsar does the selling by itself rather have some else like Dhoni, John, surya or some celebrity do it...

HH will go to the dogs shortly like Yamaha if they dont pull up their socks quickly.

HH is actually selling sticker for their bikes nowdays. with Hh passion + (L.E) Karizma R(Rubbish).... so on. Least upgrade the engine to some extent .. since they made a 125cc F.I system least they could have fuel injected the Karizma with these mods.
btw : the console does look during Night.

Saw a black one on the road. It did look good. The bike had red suspension but black wheels. The red suspension did set in well with the bike..

All they are trying to put across here is :

* We have recieved free samples of red paint, which we have passed on to the customer in the form of red paint on the alloys and suspension.
* The graphics designer had a gem of an idea.. and so decided to add R to the Karizma name... does that mean a new husband for the Karizma?
* R in sporty lettering... that can make the bike actually go faster.

A new dab of paint.. and its able to take on anything.. amazing.>!!

Hero Honda is managed by oldies who think that new stickering and bold paint is what is required to sell a sports bike. Wheras Bajaj is managed by youngster who knows what a real sportsbike is.
