“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

2009 Hero Honda Karizma ZMR PGM-Fi (Speculation)

This can be easily one of the best Indian Bike release this year after we had the Bajaj Pulsar 220cc, and probably would be the most praised release from Hero Honda in a long long time as far as performance bikes are concerned from Hero Honda's stable.

This time it's not just a sticker job, but it's really a serious upgrade. Really serious!! Some of the features which we can expect are -

1) 223cc PGM-Fi engine, expected to produce 21bhp @ 7.5k rpm and 21.5 Nm torque @ 6.5k rpm.

2) As we can see, the machine would be sporting a full fairing. The full fairing also calls for a liquid cooled engine, but again, that needs to be seen.

3) Gold colored Engine Theme.

4) Clear front indicators.

5) Fairing mounted RVMs.

6) Split grab rails.

7) Clip-on Handle bars.

8) LED Tail-lamp.

9) Gas Reserve Shock rear suspension.

10) It's also being said that for the 2009 version, the Exhaust Silencer of the current version Karizma would be replaced with the Exhaust Silencer of the Hero Honda Hunk with some modifications.

11) There might be no change in the tyre specification, so the 2009 version might still be sporting the 100/90 MRF Zappers.

12) Rear disk brake.

Pricing of this machine would remain a big question of debate. I would say, with all this specs, the tag can easily read past the 1lakh mark. But think of it.... even if the price tag crosses 1lakh (which in all probability it might cross) it would still be a better deal than the Yamaha R15. Apart from the price figures, the performance figures would also be soughted after. The biggest question would be ..... would the Hero Honda Karizma ZMR PGM-fi would be able to beat Bajaj Pulsar DTS-i on performance numbers!!

Well everything said and done.... this is as good as a speculation can be as there is no official word from Hero Honda.

  2. PLM Dude!!
    With what's visible on the bike, and if the engine turns out to be liquid cooled one (owing to it being fully faired), I would think the price tag might read somewhere near to 1lakhs ..... couple of bucks over or below!!
