This is the Hero Centennial. There are only 100, and they’ll all be auctioned off for a kidney, believe it or not.

The Hero Centennial has just seen the light in India. The differences of the Hero Centennial They are enormous compared to the Karizma XMR 210at least aesthetically because for now, the company has not mentioned any increase in power or torque.

Years ago, when the Karizmathe Indian biker community was left wanting more from a sportier version. Now the company has responded to this demand and has presented a much more dynamic and emotional version. Yes, as we are telling you, and that is the Hero CentennialAs a curiosity, at the time of the presentation, it was called Karizma CE (commemorative edition).

The Karizma CE It was Hero’s attempt to commemorate the 101st anniversary of the late man’s birth. Dr. Brijmohan Lall Munjalfounder of Hero MotoCorp. Now, a little later, we know that the Karizma CE has adopted a definitive name. That is why its definitive name is The CentennialAnd of course, as it is a limited edition, the shape it adopts is more sporty and exclusive than the Karizma can aspire.

This is because the sportiest model of Karizma will not be available to the general market. Hero MotoCorp will launch only 100 units of the Centennialwhich will be auctioned off to company employees, business partners and interested parties as collector’s items. The funds raised at the auction will be donated to social causes, reflecting the founder’s spirit.
