I like the finish of the fairing but yes it looks slightly bulky than the rest of the body also the head light looks different.

I surely hope it hits the road sooner than later

Doesn't the stickering on the fairing look like a rip off of the Hayabusa?

Yeah! But, if you carefully read, it is 'ZMR'.

Hope it looks hot in real.

Default Finally New Karizma- Fi on its Way !

Just Got these pic from Orkut !

These Surely tell that the Zma has also entered into the 'upgradation mode'

The new Karizma! Yes this is the new Karizma that we all have been waiting for and without wasting any more time on verbose I will straight away get down to whats new in the 2009 Karizma.
* Full Fairing
* Split Clip On Handle Bars
* Split rear grab rails
* New Colors
* PGM-FI (Programmable Fuel Injection)
* Mirrors mounted on the fairing
* New rear mud guard
* New headlamp and tail lamp which is now LED
* New Graphics (Traditionally Hero Honda)
* Slightly reprofiled body work
* Gas Charged Shock Absorbers.

Yuppie! New Karizma on cards!!! EDIT- Now Launched !!-2h3c7s0.jpg

Eagerly waiting for the specs. I hope they have tweaked the engine for more power.

I think it would have looked better if they made the fuel tank more mascular.

From the picture, it looks like a school kid carrying a big suitcase.

I think it is someone who has modified the existing ZMA. Seems to be a good mod job. Very little branding. Unlike HH. They always have large HH logos.

The fairing looks uggly to say the least. Its fuel injected for sure, you can see the PGM-Fi decal on the fairing. If internal coolings not present there are going to be some serious heating issues. Even the existing Karizma gets heated pretty soon. The zma's shock absorbers were pretty good offering adequate firmness for hard cornering as well as enough damping for the potholes. Lets see what the new gas shox perform now. What however is pathetic is the use of the same skinny 100/90 zappers at the rear.

It will kill with those looks? I somehow cannot digest a touring bike with that kind of fairing. YUCKKKK! It seems like a cross between a Hayabusa and a bowling ball.
