Hero Honda Karizma vs Bajaj Pulsar 220 - The big huns

This is one for the ages. Hero Honda versus Bajaj. Karizma versus Pulsar 220. The first quarter-faired big bike against the second one. Only, the second one took some time coming. But that time was spent developing the various high-tech (for India) bits that the P220 comes with. Fuel injection, rear disc, oil cooler, clip-on handlebars, projector lamps, LED tail lights and fat tubeless tyres make it technologically superior to the Karizma. And the Bajaj is easier to ride fast on our roads as well. It has a responsive engine, good brakes and is stable around corners. It rides well too, though the Karizma matches it on this count. Everywhere else, the Karizma lives in the P220's shadow. Though it is in dire need of a comprehensive upgrade, it is still the dependable and solid package as ever. If you have always wanted a Karizma, we suggest you wait until Hero Honda decides to launch an uprated version. Until then, you always have the P220.

I don't own a bike yet. want to buy my first bike. looking at the below comment. Maintance and quality wise Karizma R seems to be the best choice but my only promblem is its looks. Its definetly shoudn't call it self a sports bike. When you buy a bike you look for milege and its performance over the years so i think am going to go for Karizma R... Tks

Karizma is d king of indian performance bikes. It's smooth, comfortable, reliable and also re sale value. It's available in 5 catchy colorsss.. Karizma R alwaysss game.

friends trust me the pulsar is the real lord of streets! :) i just love my 220 i rode my friend's karizma zmr today it was just nothing in front of my 220! though it was more smoother but the handling the comfort was perfect in 220! :) it has no rear disk i mean the karizma r! and the customer satisfaction is zero on the hero honda side! my friend harsh owns a zmr still when we go to service centers they keep us waiting for an hour everytime! but my 220 when i take it to bajaj centers they take just 2-3 minutes! and i think this is something very important! i am an proud owner of 220! it rocks :)

pulsar 220 is much better and faster than karizma r ,but quality of p220 is not that's engine makes noise after 2 years.karizma has a better engine than p220.pulsar looks like a beast on road.looks are muscular than karizma.p220 has 21 bhp that will take you to 144 km/hr .karizma does only 130 km/hr.Be the fastest indian and go for PULSAR 220.

Bajaj Pulsar 220 and the Hero Honda Karizma ZMR are the only Indian fastest sport bikesexcept royal enfield and imported bikes.Pulsar has a top speed of 145 and karizma’s top speed is 125.Mileage and quality wise karizma is little better than pulsar but not much. ZMR’s full body cowl gives it a proper sports-bike look. Pulsar 220 motorcycle,has a raised seat and low-set handlebars, making the rider lean slightly to the bike’s front, which adds to the confident ride quality.If you love to race and do all kind of crazy stunts go for the Bajaj Oulsar 220 or go with Hero Honda Karizma ZMR which is loaded with features . bikes for sale

@rahul U say Kz is the king... But how ?
  Posted by Rahul at 11th February,2011
dear friends to be honest, let me tel you all that truly Karizma is the king !! the reason why i say this is simply because its the same from when it was born, only few cosmetic changes from time to time, other wise its the same not like the bajaj who introduced a 150 first then it was 180 then 220 n 200 each one worst than the previous one !! KariZma still the same still the best, the only hardcore hotty in indian roads N m truly proud to own it !!
  Posted by yoman at 26th January,2011
P-220 slightly lags in quality BUT not much , in looks, both are stunning , in mileage karizma is 2-3kmpl more, in engine performance, no comparison at all, karizma performs @ pulsar 180 level. Price- pulsar is definetly cheaper. Given a choice i'll go for p-220 bcoz karizma is so underpowered for its price
  Posted by Deepak Raj at 26th January,2011
Hey guys i wud like to conclude this conversation......every body please listen karizma is born with a silver spoon(born with 225cc mill),where as pulsar 220 is just the upgraded version of pulsar 150...karizma is the first sports bike in india for that itself bajaj has to bowwww...down...for it.people are complaining and hurting that karizma is only with 17bhp 223cc engine....starting from dimensions,length,breath,height for everything karizma is balanced well for which to provide the safest ride..As soon u seated,it gives the confidence of already reached the point where to go.Really we karizma guys have to appreciate pulsar for bringing racing instinct in indian roads....because herohonda is evolutionary(slow) in technology.But dont wory karizma is always a king of indian roads,there should be competition then only karizma can be recognized and proved.myself a proud owner of old classic cbz i just love it i cant be without him,with it i manage both pulsar 150&180 in the highways,yes

guys pulsar sucks as my friend has it.he fell difficult to turn etc but karizma ZMR is the baap of the indian road it rules it it has good shock absover than p220 and btw having more speed doesnt have much difference coz your indian road sucks so value of having more than 130kmph.And thats where hero honda found it and set up the last speed.the fuel consumtion karizma have more returns than p220 in city as well as in highway

i had been on karizma for long, and i am very much satisfied by the performance and i took up a trial of pulsar 220 but would like to say it is just the copier version tryin to fool people ... a friend of mine is now fade up of the things and break down of pulsar 220.. and one thing more bajaj makes the bike but changes models so soon and parts of the older version are now not avail;able at even showroom ... but karizma ruled since the day it has been in market neither their parts changed nor their performance ..

karizma had only one advantage that is its handling at the turns.p220 is most power full bike .p220 easily goes to 140+kmph but karizma does not go above 130kmph.karizma goes 0-60kmph in 4.5 sec & 0-100kmph in 14 sec while p220dtsi goes 0-60kmph in 3.8 sec & 0-100kmph in just 10 sec. so pulsar is best.
  Posted by SAMUEL DANIEL DAVID at 26th September,2010
i think, people who own pulsor are jealous of those who have karizma. i've karima r. karizma SURPASSES and TRANSCENDS Pulsor220 in SPEED, BEAUTY,MAINTANENCE etc.pulsor220 may be a king as others say but Karizma is the EMPEROR. the roads of india fills with pride when karizma treds on it.

Hi All I have Karzima and my friend have P220. we both checked the goods and bads of these two bikes and found Max defects in P220. The major defect of P220 is we can't take a easy turn with P220 and in sharp turning we have chances of falling from P220 easily where as u can turn ZMA in any speed easily and smoothly. In terms of speed P220's pick is more than ZMA but in long run ZMA is just awasome and easliy beat P220. we are able to goa Max Speed of P220 is 135KM/hr where as on ZMA its reaching 140+KM/hr easliy. so our sugesstion for those who want to buy bike we could say Karizma is the best of all.
  Posted by AshokJithu at 19th August,2010
P220 has an disadvantage tht we con't drive for a far distance more than 150 km continiously as the temp sensors stops the engine and it was not comortable too..... But ZMR is better for both above these, ZMR didn't have the max speed above 135kmph........ But 220 launch 155kmph.......

  Posted by $.RGU47.$ at 2nd April,2010
I too think Karizma is much better choise than a Pulsar 220DTSI. Just becoz the Pulsar is having tube-less tyres and disk break at rear don't make it a gud ride. Karizma's engine is much more trustworthy and smooth than that of pulsar. Also in terms of mileage and comfort Karizma is better. It's just a stupid question if u ask "Which is better Karizma or Pulsar 220Dtsi?"

  Posted by RAM at 14th March,2010
I think it is a really absurd topic to talk about, there is no compare between Karizma R & P220 bcoz very first of all Karizma has Kick start option which is a really important part as far motorbike has been concerned. I,m a owner of Karizma R & I ride P220 many times, I feel a metallic like vibration a lot more than it torque. Where as Karizma R has lot more Silent and broooooooom like sweet vibration which is a indication of a good engine. DEFENITELY IN MY VIEW ABOUT P220 IS "LET'S SEE YOUR BIKE AT IT'S 2 YEARS OF AGE - DEKHNA DHAKHELTE DHAKELTE GAAR FAAT JAYEGE JAB SELF STARTER WILL GONNA DIE".

No one can tell tat pulsar 220 is good cos it has the same engine of pulsar 200 and in our country many people prefer P200 instead of P220 cos it has good acceleration and superb in handling and breaking but all these things are absent in P220 but the New Karizma ZMR is the present king of indian roads no other bikes can touch its performance in all fields...Inspite of speaking about the Pulsar... The Yamaha R15 is far better so dont talk like idiots in comparing Pulsar with any other big guns atlast i say tat Karizma will be the No.1 Fastest and best bike in our country and All the best for hero honda.....
  Posted by VENURAJA GOPAL at 7th February,2010
When we compare the technical specifics alone Bajaj pulsar 220 stands ahead of Karizma in almost all sectors. First in Indian conditions you will have to ride some days in pitch darkness perticularly if you have rural background. Otherwise ,if you go on a long journey , night riding become necessary many times to reach the target destinations. In these cases you need better lighting ,which Pulsar provides with 55watt bulb with projector style(low beam) and elliptical quality bulb 55watts (for high beam). Second case is , Pulsar's torque is higher almost nearing 350cc Bullet (compared to weight) which is most necessary to climb the hills on tours. And yet one more is Pulsar's BHP is higher ,it is 21 against Karizma's 17.5 . So I shall choose, Pulsar eventhough it's looks are not so good as Karizam ZMR's style. The proof of pudding is in eating it. Anyone can observe the sales figures. Pulsars grabbed the high market share among bikes. Why should customers choose Pulsar

Even pulsar has many qualities over karizma still karizma is better.Because the comfort and the smooth of the bike is very better than pulsar220.Both person travels in the vehicle feels comfort.When we reach speed of 100 km/hr the pulsar's sounds very much and vibrates. Comparing to Karizma the pulsar has only less re sail value.

guys, dont compare these bikes.. they are two diff bikes.. with diff charecteristics. ride both the bikes for a couple of hours and than choose the one u r most confortable on.. u can extract power from any bike u know.. its all about the comfort ride handeling n breaking stability.. i have ridden both the bikes n both feel different.. a P220 feels strong under accelaration n breaking while a ZMR feels smooth n confortable.. both hav identical top ends.. the thing is which one of these caters to you... just because u like one bike dont sterio type the other one.. its been ages since we have been waitin for big bikes n now we hav our prayers answered... so lets just enjoy the moment... see ya

Karizma sucks ass.. it is the kinda bike ppl wearing tight tees and sporting long hairs buy. Worse part is they r coming out with the same engine with the head and tail light of an apache .the tv add sucks even more.. rock the storm ZMR??Sheesh ! HeroHonda needs to get out of its cycle business and concentrate more onto bikes if it shd even stand a chance of being compared to a 220.

Karizma should compare with pulsar180, Yamaha fazer, R15, FZ16 and Apache RTR. P220 is 4 step ahead of new Karizma ZMR. Currently we dont have any bike who can challenge P220. P220 is simply great..

you cannot compare pulser 220 with karizma bcz pulsar is a accedent bike as many accident you will find pulsar due to its fuel tank which strate hurts at the main point karizma is smooth no noise compare to dtsi engine

I agree. Karizma lives in 220 shadow. The new 220 dtsi is one step ahead of its predecessor. I was so hapy with Fi i got the other version also. HH time to come out of the shadow of Splendors and passions. Its a known fact, Pulsars enjoy 60% market share in the premium bike segment (150cc +). Only ignorant people buy Karizma

pal,i couldnt help wondering on wat count u were comparing 220 and karizma..wat seems like a a very little known fact is tat te latter is actually a sports tourer,similar in concept to te yam fazer,with its engine so tuned tat te engine doesnt get strained even at te redline,and as every1 knows,probably even americans can get more than 17bhp out of 223cc,but HH din bcos they wanted it to b a tourer while te tag sports bike is closer to 220,simply bcos 21bhp wit 2valves and SOHC,tat too from stupid indian fuel is pretty much te best any can get out of 220cc. secondly,as u hav accepted yourself,karizma was released 10yrs ago,and it took 10 long years of begging by HH to te parent honda to let them put an PGMFi and revised fairin.luks like bajaj and TVS are way better cos they dont hav to go thru such drudgery. third,while karizmas switchgear aint bad,how can u say tat the shiny back flat switches and a handle bar which luks like its from a BMX bike is actually better than a 220? 4th,i ow

Sure Pulsar has more features, but sadly it’s the same dated look overall. The same pulsar again and again and phew once again. Karizma has an air of esteem and futuristic feel which pulsar doesn’t have at all. P220 could be little faster but heck it feels just like another Pulsar, Bajaj needs to dare and do something which HH did almost 10 years ago, Bajaj is still struggling to fight out Karizma. No one skips a beat looking at the same P design anymore, although K still has that illusive feel around it. Moreover K feels like a king on all aspects. Not trying to bring down a P since I own both (K and P200). Just that P is still not there, finish, quality of plastics, gearbox, overall fit and feel is still down grade. That’s the challenge in pouring in so many features but missing out on the quality expected out of the snazzy deals. I think there is no point comparing any P with K. Not Yet!
