Hero CE001: Why based on Karizma XMR?

According to HT Auto, this is because the original Karizma was a project that was built around the time Munjal was the Chairman Emeritus at the Hero Group.

Hero CE001: Design

The motorcycle gets carbon fibre for the bodywork, making the two-wheeler substantially lighter than the stock model. Also, the riding posture is said to be upright on this limited edition offering.

Hero CE001: Powertrain

CE001 is expected to get a power boost over the standard model. For context, Karizma XMR is powered by a 210 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that generates 25 bhp of maximum power and 20 Nm of peak torque. Additionally, buyers can expect a better power-to-weight ratio, along with a host of performance parts, including an Akrapovic exhaust.

Hero CE001: Price

While Hero is yet to reveal CE001's pricing details, the company has assured it will deliver all 100 units by July. The motorcycle will be available for sale online.
