Hero MotoCorp has unveiled new dual tone colours for the Hero Karizma and the Hero Karizma ZMR at the Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida. Each model gets a new theme, with the former getting a white and orange dual tone pattern and the latter getting a red and white livery.
Hero Karizma dual tone
The semi-faired Karizma gets a new, white and orange colour theme with some black trims and panels. This is in addition to its existing colour choices that include Power Black, Ebony Grey, Sports Red, Spotlight White and Daring Yellow. This is the first dual tone variant of the standard Karizma. There is no mechanical change in the new version. It is powered by the 223 cc air-cooled single-cylinder carbureted engine with SOHC that produces 19.2 bhp at 7,500 rpm and 19.35 Nm at 6,000 rpm, and is mated to a five-speed gearbox.

The fully-faired version gets a new, red and white colour scheme which is the first dual tone option on the model. Its existing colours are Panther Black, Blazing Red, Spotlight White and Vibrant Orange.
The dual tone ZMR does not feature any other change. It is powered by the 223 cc air-cooled single-cylinder fuel-injected engine with an oil-cooler that produces 20 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 19.7 Nm at 6,500 rpm, and is paired with a five-speed transmission.
Both colours will be launched in the market shortly.
