The impact of the slowdown in the auto sector has been read in many vehicles. The production of Hero Karizma, the first premium motorcycle of Hero MotoCorp, which has been beating the hearts of young people, can be locked. According to the data released, the company has not produced even one unit of this bike for the last six months.

When Karizma was launched in 2003, the company was Hero Honda instead of Hero Motocorp, at the time this bike was counted among premium bikes. At that time, the brand ambassador of this bike was Hrithik Roshan. Hrithik had many hits like 'Koi Mil Gaya' during that time, and he was a rising star. Hrithik had advertised Karizma with the tagline "Jet Set Go", which showed Karizma's speed and power. At that time it was the most preferred bike of the youth.
It is to be noted that according to reports, the new emission standard BS-6 is to be implemented from April 2020 next year, and Karisma does not meet the new standards. Sources say that it is not possible to upgrade Karizma's engine to BS-6. According to the data released by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers, ie SIAM, not a single unit of Karisma has been built from April 2019 to September 2019. However, earlier this year, the company said it would not discontinue Karizma and continue to export it overseas.

At the same time, not a single unit of this bike has been exported in the last six months. This bike was powered by a 200 cc single-cylinder engine, which generates 20 bhp at a maximum of 8000 rpm and 19.7 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. The bike's engine comes in a 5-speed gearbox. The single tone of the bike was priced at Rs 1.08 lakh while the dual-tone shade was priced at Rs 1,10,500 lakh.
Let us also tell you that in the last financial year, the company produced 314 units of it, which came down to 138 units in this financial year 2019. At the same time, exports also decreased to 80 units. But when Yamaha started making sports bike R15 in 2009, the craze of Karizma decreased in people, after which the company launched Karizma ZMR.
