What will the Hero Karizma ZMR BS6 have?

The official confirmation about the Karizma not leaving the market tell us that the company is working on updates of design and performance. Hero is planning on bringing a bigger 300cc engine instead of making the current 220cc engine BS6 compliant. This might be a good competition to the 250cc vehicles which is usually the case with Hero engines. There is no confirmation on this and hero might end up giving the bike the same 200cc engine as on the Xpulse 200T. We also expect to see some new design elements on the vehicle which will be in line with the contemporary design lines.

This new and updated Karizma will compete with the 250cc fared bikes which might show up on the market in the upcoming months. There are speculations about the engine but there can’t be any competition without official note from the company. Hero is expected to bring the Karizma 300 to the Auto Expo 2020. Along with this, the BS6 updated versions of the Xpulse and Xtreme will also be seen at the Expo. The Xpulse 200 rally editions will make its cameo at the expo. We have done a complete review of the Xtreme 200S which is a completely fared version of the 200cc engine from Hero. Do check out the video below

No please! No more designs by Hero. They absolutely ruined a fantastic bike with the atrocious designs.

Just bring back the classic Karizma - it had a timeless design.
Also 200cc wil no longer cut it with the the tons of options available these days. They need to make it at least 300cc.

While hero undoubtedly botched the Karizma, their design language in general is rather inoffensive. Nothing radical... but generally inoffensive. Dare I say, the fairing execution on the Xtreme 200S looks rather classy! Xpulse is another example of a simple, functional design

Lets see what this 300cc engine has to offer. Might be a perfect fit in the xpulse too. If this were to arrive, I know many owners will be transplanting the 300cc engine to the Xpulse... a la Karizma 223 cc block we see in many Impulse chassis.

Hopefully Hero will have the vision and courage to do it themselves and not keep the application of the engines limited to a single bike. Excited to see what's next

Or go back to the tried and tested utilitarian look.

Round headlights, monoshock and Fi.

Hero isn't participating in the Auto Expo 2020. How can they launch and display vehicles without participation?

I don't think there is anything credible in this article.

There is no rule about launching product without showcasing in Auto expo.

Please read the following as quoted in the MotorOctane article:

" Hero is expected to bring the Karizma 300 to the Auto Expo 2020. Along with this, the BS6 updated versions of the Xpulse and Xtreme will also be seen at the Expo. The Xpulse 200 rally editions will make its cameo at the expo."
There should be a rule to read and understand before posting though.
