    I am from kolkata, & still waiting to see the bike in flesh...I have en quired two auth-dist but they don't have any info.

    Bookings have begun in kolkata although it hasnt created any huge excitement here as expected. on road price here is 1Lks, though they havent given the exact cost break-up.Booking amount is 50,000/- and waiting period is around 3 months ie. if you book it now, you wont get the delivery before end of december.If you want to book the bike you can get in tpuch with Amit Motorcycles near Lake Gardens
    You can take the ride away from me but you cannot take the rider out of my soul.........

    Today i got my karizma zmr delievered to me......i was pretty excited to have this new bike. Though i own zma-r, i still bought the zmr 'cause karizma is pretty close to my heart.

    After getting the bike, i went to shanidham temple and did the puja, and then i went to home so that my family can have a look of this bike and after that i rode to gurgaon and back to Delhi.

    now today i have rode it around for 150 km, and to be honest it is just the another karizma, when u press the starter u hear the similar starter motor sound and engine coming to life instantly, the throttle response is quick.

    when i put the bike in first gear and start riding it there isn't much difference in pick up, it remains same as in zma-r. the additional 0.6 bhp is nullified by the additional weight of 9 kg.

    the seating position is same, the foot pegs are too similar, though the design of brake lever and footrest is a bit different.

    the engine sound is slightly deeper....but its very similar to the zma-r....there is not a noticeable difference.
    but yes its much crisper and takes even a slight throttle very quickly. i only take the bike at max. 80 km.hr since the engine is new.....but it reached 80 without an effort and i even didn't noticed even a slight vibration.....anyhow the zma-r too doesn't have any vibration till 115..after that the foot pegs do start vibrating a little.

    the gear box is similar and but softer.....same style of one down and four up patten. suspension is improved since they are gas charged. instrumentation also impress me i really like the tachometer back lit. but if i compare the instrumentation of the zmr and zma-r, i will choose zma-r instrumentation as it looks more classy.

    the front brake is same as in zma-r, but yes the rear brake is very good.....though not as powerful as in front but it really serves the purpose well and very good when compared to rear drums of zma-r.

    coming to design i think hh could have designed it much better....the fairing looks too bulky and i wonder Wat will happen to it if bychance the bike fells or by chance some rickshaw may hit it. however the design of headlamp is innovative and a headturner. the zma-r looks more stunning when i parked both bikes together.

    maneuvering this bike is little difficult when compared to r version as it is 10 kg extra and that large fairing that need to be taken cared off.

    the real time mileage indicator is showing me 42 kmpl when i ride 60-70km range.....and 38 kmpl when i took it to 80.
    Some ppl on orkut were claiming that they are getting 50-55.


    This bike do not have a kick. The self starter is same and i hope there wont be any problems in future.

    to sum up i would say the karizma zmr is overall a nice bike, but its high cost 98k puts Ur cheers down.

    i got this bike for rs. 98700 all inclusive, from oswal honda delhi. if u wanna get it then u have to book it with booking amount of 40,000(may vary per dealer) and then it will be delievered as per availability, depending on color.
    yellow have long waiting period whereas black and red are available in a week. i will get the registration number in a week.

    and i recommend the zmr which is value for money and hassle free bike.

    any how i am going to yamunagar and Chandigarh tomorrow to visit some of my relatives and friends for 3-4 days.

    See u SOON xBHP.

    @anmol_1990,

    Thanks for sharing this...As it is the first customer review/preview.

    You didn't mention anything about Oil-Cooler...How it performs in the full-fairing ?

    Thanks man for sharing the info...You are always helpful person.
    Yes in kolkata it won't generate any excitement, I only find till now hoarding opposite Exide crossing.
    If I booked it now...In the 3 months I will dead for sure...So I will wait until it become mainstream & see how this one take place "Above All" or else I will consider for "Always Game".

    oil cooler is small verticall type.....u cant see how it is functioning, a small radiator thru which oil flows..........but yes when the bike is driven in city, u can feel the engine heat.

    i think they could have liquid cooled the engine.
