The latest teaser showcases the bike’s muscular silhouette, highlighting its bulky fuel tank adorned with ‘XMR’ graphics, setting a bold tone.
While discerning specific details in these teasers is quite challenging, we do see that the bike gets a two-piece stepped seat, clip-on handlebars, a low front visor, fairing-mounted rearview mirrors, a sharp tail-end, and sporty alloy wheels. The suspension will comprise a monoshock at the rear and telescopic forks at the front. The new XMR will also get a digital display panel, and it cruises on attractive alloy wheels.
Hrithik Roshan is back with the brand
Hrithik Roshan, the original Karizma’s brand ambassador, has added to the excitement by teasing the bike’s revival on his social media platforms, generating buzz among fans. Let’s hope there would be an exciting video advert involving him slinging mud from his bike onto a gang of rogue bikers. (Please do it, Hero!)
