The Kickstarter is karizma's. Tank is Karizma's. Engine is Karizma's and frame is Karizma's. So it's more Karizma than anything else
The Engine and The Frame are two of the most important single parts that determine what a vehicle actually is and in this example both of em are Karizma's.

Technically swingarm is a part of suspension, not frame Man the kicker is stock... but bent out of stock
I've got no idea regarding mods.. well it's a Raid Karizma and he has plumped a lot for suspension components, so atleast it might have a cam.

Here's a pic of a raid Karizma, except the suspension bits it's all Karizma. It belongs to someone i know.

Attachment 92429

Any idea how much did monoshock cost including installation ? [talking about the once in the pic]
and the rear disc brake ?
It really looks killer

Hey sankar, last week I was preparing the karizma for the drag. I wanted to save the weight of the wheels by swapping the alloys to the spoked wheels from the CBZ. I removed the wheels from the CBZ and karizma and was surprised to find that the karizma alloys were much lighter than the CBZ. It was nearly 30% lighter even with a 100/90 tyre. The CBZ had a 3.00 x 18 tyre. So hope this rings a bell in you.

Close to a lac. I don't have exact figures but it's around the 1 lac mark.

Yes unlike the Pulsar alloys which were rumoured to weigh more than steel rims, the ZMA alloys are actually lighter i.e the way they are expected to be

The CBZ wheels will be rugged but will increase the rolling resistance for sure. Else try the wheels off the Honda Unicorn, they should be lighter than the CBZ wheels.
But the big concern again is, you'll not find a disc adapter plate with the same pitch of the karizma. Another downer!

Hey thanks man. Working on an all-out race bike set-up now.

Yes that's what i was really worried about. Most of them use the 6 bolt pattern. Even the CBZ.

In that case i might go for another stock alloy and use a rough road tire (like the Moto C/Secura) with slightly higher profile in the front. Rear will sport a matching tyre.

Most of my rides are not exactly over well paved roads. Even the daily stretch to office is over broken road and god knows how long it will stay that way. So i guess it makes sense to go in for a slightly higher profile rough road tyres.

try getting the MRF dirt tyres. Not the C or D. proper competition off roading tyres. U get them at chennai for plenty if you tell them that you are a off-road racer. Its available for peanuts at chennai but everywhere else will cost u twice. Get them on and start drifting and counter-steering

Hehehe... proper dirt tyres would be too hardcore for my daily running. Rough road tyres would be sufficient.. decent grip in both road conditions. MRF moto c is pretty good man.. especially in it's 4.25x18 size. I had it on the bullet. C was better than D.

None of the above
I won on my Fiero and Karizma. Fiero is an all-out drag bike and was the fastest bike of the day. Well my RTR also took part in a different guise, but my friend rode and came 3rd.
Some pics,
now to avoid confusion...The white bike is the Drag Fiero. Yellow fairing is my RTR and karizma, ofcourse u can make-out.


Hope this does not go off-topic..mods excuse for a while
