The P220 is a lot more advanced in terms of electronics, but the Karizma banks on reliability, maneuverability and maybe even power. A Karizma would be my choice for sure

On paper yes the 220 is a way better bike than the Karizma.
But in real the the zma is miles ahead in terms of build quality, high speed stability, reliability. The zma is the winner here period.

If I were you then I would have gone for the karizma. Have ridden both the bikes. But have always liked the zma for the ride quality.

If i was in your state of confusion, I sure have opted for pulsar 220.
It's actually more advance in technology than zma. i.e. it's running on fuel injection and zma on same carburetor platform.
It's actually new concept bike and kzma is now common on indian roads. My personal views.

I had the Zma-R for a year. I really liked it. Initially, I had booked both the P220 as well as the Zma. After trying both extensively, I went in for the Zma. It's a much better product, overall.
At my town, since we don't have a HH dealership , there are a multitude of Pulsars around but very few new Zma-Rs - 3 to be exact. So most young bikers here don't realize the better quality of the HH product. I myself took the trouble of buying the Zma from Siliguri about 120 kms from here and paying quite a bit extra to get it registered in my state, coz of all the advice I got from Team-Bhp. Haven't regretted it.
I had four P200 owners and three P220 owners try my bike and they were all pretty surprised by my Zma's refinement, stability and torque. Three of them wanted to exchange their rides with mine.
13 months of ownership, ridden flat out. Problems faced- One tail light fused and once a fuse blew. Thats it. Fantastic experience overall. It's another story that i sold that to buy the Lb 500.
Bottomline, the Karizma any day over any of the Pulsars. Period!.
