Hero Honda Karizma Versus Bajaj Avenger

firstly,decide for what purpose do u want the bike?do u want it as a vehicle just for the kicks of fast acceleration? then karizma is your choice...but if u want a bike with superb comfort and an even better suspension...then the answer is obvious...avenger!

karizma is 223 cc
avenger is 200 cc oil cooled (this matters only on long trips and higher rpms)

about raw power,
karizma generates 17 Ps@7000 rpm
avenger generates 17.51 @8000 rpm

so the power in avenger is more...only thing is that since its been configured as a cruiser bike...u wont get the pick of a pulsar etc.


karizma claims 35-40 kmpl... but majority of my frnds having it get about 25-30

avenger here gives me around 35

ohh...and if u are a top speed junky...karizma claims to go 125kmph
avenger claims 115 though on NH17 i have driven it at 130 :)

resale value would be around the same for both the bikes depending on hows the condition of your bike...though karizma has been the same looking since a looong time...so i guess avenger might have a slight edge over this one.

personally speaking...i would go for the avenger...its got style...its cool...and perormance wise its pretty good! =D

My vote is for Karizma!!! Maneuverability is the key and Avenger has much lesser Maneuverability that avenger. Avenger will always lose to karizma in heavy traffic.

[:P] First of all what an idiot compared a cruiser with low standard good for nothing sports bike. You drive for an hour u started getting ache. I went 160 km straight in avenger while traveling from blore to pondycherry I dont have any single back problem, while my friends had lot of problem. And manuvarablity, its only how u handle the bike, u can not have that much as its bigger

PS: 130 is impossible speed in avenger as well as karizma, stop dreaming.
