Let's quickly get into what's new...

Hero MotoCorp launched the Karizma ZMR way back in 2009 and since then the company gave it a minor update in 2011, changing the colour of the instrument cluster's backlight to blue from light orange and giving the bike body coloured rear view mirrors.

Now in 2013, Hero has unveiled the biggest update to the Karizma ZMR, with the styling updates also reaching its younger sibling, the Karizma R.

In fact the front and rear are very similar. The front of the new ZMR sports twin headlights along with day time running lights right above the turn indicators.
