Over the past few years, we have witnessed a great spur in the off-roading and adventurous riding experiences among Indian riders. Paying attention to this rising demand in the racing and adventure category, we are thrilled to launch these purpose-built motorcycles, RM-Z450 and RM-250. The bikes boast of great performance, distinctive design, and agility that is unique to RMZ series, offering great handling and control to riders.
Both bikes are made to withstand rugged terrains and any kind of riding conditions. The suspension on the bikes is capable of handling every type of road surface very well, especially dirt. The lightweight and strong chassis on both bikes coupled with high power figures, essentially makes them nothing short of a flying machine.
