    sir, pls give me some tips for the maintenance of mileage in karizma?? presently, mileage is giving only 30 (around)

  • We recommends bikers to put the choke, self start the engine and leave it for 10-15 seconds so that the oil gets heated up and the luke warn low density oil finds it easy to circulate through upto the top of the engine. Do not leave the choke for too long as it would flood the engine with fuel. Do not open the throttle until it has run for atleast 5 km distance and the engine comes to a normal operating heat range.

    If you gun the engine in cold conditions as soon as you start it, there would not be enough lubrication in the engine and it leads to more friction which ultimately damages the piston and the engine and hence your mileage will be low.

    If you go to a gym, your coach will ask you to warm up before you do some heavy lifting and iron pumping… this is just like that. Your bike is not much different from your body!

    Another good tip worth mentioning is to remove the saree guard if there is no use for it. I am a student and even after I get married I do not expect my wife to sit on the high back seat of Karizma… I would be probably getting a free car as a gift at that time . So I removed the saree guard as soon as I bought it. It reduces dead weight by 4-5 kg and would definitely improve the performance of the engine and increase fuel efficiency.

    Some basic fuel efficiency tips that you may have already known are 1. Switch off your engine during signals with long waiting periods. 2. Change your oil according to your manufacturer’s recommendations. 3. Check your tube’s pressure every month… higher pressure than the recommended value would give you more mileage but less friction and stability. So keep it to the optimum value.

    Just by following these simple tips, you can improve your bike’s mileage by up to 10-15%. If you have similar tips on how to improve mileage, please do share them with rest of us. We will soon post an article on this ‘Tips for Improving Your Bike’s Mileage’.

    Can i put nitrogen air in the tyres?

  • franco

    i am hearing that hero honda has plans to stop karizma R production..and sell only the ZMR model…is it true..i want to buy karizma R

  • Hero Honda is currently selling both Karizma ZMR and Karizma R in India and they have no plans to discontinue the Karizma R as it is selling in very good numbers and is very popular choice among young buyers. But rumours are spread that after the launch of the Karizma 250R, Hero Honda will discontinue the Karizma R.

  • Nitrogen in tires is becoming a popular replacement for standard air. Nitrogen is all around us… the air we breathe is 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and the rest is small amounts of other gasses. When it comes to tire inflation, nitrogen has many advantages over oxygen. With nitrogen tire inflation, improvements can be noted in a vehicle’s handling, fuel efficiency and tire life through better tire pressure retention, improved fuel economy and cooler running tire temperatures.

    As many people are unaware of this technique we will soon post an article related to this.

    Hi, dear friend I am planning to buy a bike with decent mileage, superb looking and atleast > 150 cc bike and the cost should be below Rs.90000. Would prefer any Bike from the current market.
    My other interests on bikes…
    1). I like Bikes from Honda, like Honda Unicorn & Karima R from Hero Honda.
    2). I connot go for Pulsor as I didnt like the engine sound, look n feel and other stuff.
    3). I might as well ready to buy Royal Enfield Classic 350 as I am interested on good engine power…but need to take loan on more than Rs. 90000.

    I am in a position not able to decide whether to go for decent bikes like HH Karizma R 2011 or Honda Unicorn or BIG Bike RY Classic350……..:(

    And I have read your comments above (Karizma R …this is a Technical problem in most of Karizma’s front tyre and shockers.) what is this problem & is this common for all Karizma R bikes and to ensure the new bike doesnt have this issue?
    Please can you help me choosing a great bike….?

  • Choose your motorcycle depending on what you require from it. Having looked through your requirements from a bike, we suggest you buy the Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler as it offers a better balance of performance and fuel economy that you seek.

    Karizma R front wheel has this problem and its not common for all Karizma R motorcycles.

  • liquid

    2012 is just around the corner and Karizma has been first launched around 10 years back. no major change in engine or performance has been made ever since. Is it a good choice to go for Karizma R in this time. I prefer this over others in the current market. but my major concerns are
    1) lack of fuel injection.( most of the new models have that)
    2) no tubeless tyres
    3) no rear disc brake
    4) headlamp
    5)leg gaurd

    is there anu scope for upgrades in the near future?
    or should i book one at the earliest.
    waiting for a fruitful reply.

  • what is the mileage of krizma r?
    how much will it cost in punjab?

  • Rohan

    hi I want to buy karizma r new model can u a pls tell me…does it have nitrous suspention ?? spllited sit?? how much max mileage it gives…pls tell me as early as possible…

  • • Karizma R doesn’t feature a nitrox suspension instead 5-step adjustable type hydraulic shock absorber.
    • No split seats either.
    • No official confirmation from ARAI, according to our test-run the Karizma R returned 30kmpl in City and on the highway with constant speed of 70kph surprised with an impressive 45kmpl. However, the mileage figures depend on how it is ridden.
