Indian market has a lot of motorcycle brands competing to have the total dominion. But since now, there are only a couple of names that gave any respectable and praiseworthy job. One among these names is Hero MotoCorp which in the last century has revolutionized the Indian motorcycle market. If we look at the past years, Hero MotoCorp has seen some big changes, first comes their breakup with Japanese major, Honda and then their partnership with USA's 'Erik Buell Racing(EBR)' and their recent ties with Austria's company 'AVL' and Italy's company 'Engine Engineering'.

So, after getting its pace slowed down by its breakup, the company is now riding to make the things right and to finish their long withheld projects. Among one of these projects, is to launch restyled versions of Hero's various famous bikes which people will like to see with advancing technology as the world advances. Recently, Hero MotoCorp showcased 15 restyled products of their stable at a press conference in Gurgaon on October 10, 2013. The new Hero Karizma R was also among them and particularly attracted a lot of buzz as it hadn't seen many changes since its arrival in Indian market in 2007.

New Hero Karizma R comes with some new features which are worth mentioning like a new clip-on handlebar, dual round headlights with clear lens indicators, rear view mirrors mounted on front cowl, front fender giving a muscular feeling, LED brake lights, bulb winker, a new sporty belly pan, stylish graphics on its body, a slightly raised tail section, 18-inch alloy wheels with wider tires, new front and side fairing, classic tail light with clear blinkers and sporty seating.
