Hero Karizma was one of the earlier motorcycles to adopt the sporty and muscular look in India. However, arch rival Bajaj Pulsar has evolved regularly to turn out to be a much better selling model.
This concept of the Hero Karizma in street naked avatar is one of the top contenders to rival the Bajaj Dominar and looks way hotter than any of the versions of arch-rival Bajaj Pulsar. The Pulsars and the Dominar are among the most popular bikes in their segment. The Karizma, on the other hand, was one of the first products to offer a sports bike like appearance at an attractive price in our market. However, it has now been discontinued. Abin_Designs_511 has come up with quite a unique and interesting concept of the Hero Karizma that is capable of giving the Dominar a run for its money. Let us know which one would you pick if you had the option of choosing between these two.
Hero Karizma Streetnaked – Bajaj Dominar Rival
To start with, the black and red colour scheme on the bike looks really attractive and sporty. The front fascia is compact but aggressive with angled headlamps and a visor with narrow handlebars. The fuel tank is sculpted and the fake fairing graphics add to the appeal of the bike. Despite being a naked version, it boasts of muscles like a full fairing sporty bike. To further accentuate the aesthetics, the front tye and disc are massive. The exhaust pipe is sleek with a characteristic crease and underbelly pattern. The engine protection guard is finished in black to merge well with the background. Both, front and the rear tyres have a red accent which gives a devilish demeanour to the bike. The rear hosts a split-seat feature with LED taillamps and a Karizma moniker engraved on the side. All in all, this Hero Karizma streetnaked concept has the potential of being a great and worthy rival to the Bajaj Dominar.
Before discontinuation, the Karizma came with a 223 cc fuel-injected air-cooled engine making 20.25 PS and 19.7 Nm of peak power and torque. This was mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The front suspension setup included a telescopic hydraulic shock absorber and the rear had the swing arm with a 5-step adjustable GRS system. The read featured the cool looking LED taillamps which was the beginning of the trend back then. We hope that Hero MotoCorp brings back the iconic Karizma to us again.
