Now the Karizma is set to get its biggest upgrade yet.

The 2014 Hero Karizma gets dual headlights with daytime running lights. The front and rear is all new but the side is unmistakably Karizma. The updated Karizma's rear is inspired from EBR's own superbike while the front seems to be inspired from the Hyosung GT250R.
