Nithyanandh K,

As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Slated to go on sale in Sri Lanka later this year.

The new Hero Karizma R and Hero Xtreme Sport made their Sri Lankan debuts at the 2014 Colombo Motor Show. The bikes will be sold through Abans Auto Pvt. Ltd., Hero’s authorized distributor for Sri Lanka.

The latest iteration of the Hero Karizma R which was launched in home market India earlier this year has been showcased to the Sri Lankans ahead of its launch before the end of 2014.

The restyled bike gets a slimmer front fairing with vertically stacked dual-headlight, new handlebar, split seat, minimalistic taillight, thicker tyres and new silencer.

The semi-faired sports bike draws power from the same 223 cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine which now produces 19.2 PS (18.93 bhp) and 18.35 Nm of torque. The carbureted motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

The Karizma ZMR with a fuel-injected version of the motor could also be on the cards for Sri Lanka.
