Gedi Junction’s take
Now, if you are among the Hero Honda/ZMA fans who were saving their money for the ZMR, you sure are going to be disappointed. This bike doesn’t look worth the money it demands (speculated price is Rs 10000 upwards of the the current Karizma R), if Hero Honda manages to price it near the Pulsar 220 DTSi (chances of which are very, very rare) there are chances that it may become popular.
If Hero Honda launched this bike in Semi-Faired status (Like the P220) it would have done wonders to the look. All said and done, its all in the hands of the Junta, how they perceive this one; otherwise, well, its a clear no no from our side! =)
