Hero MotoCorp’s flagship motorcycle – the Kazima was the pioneer of the 200-250cc motorcycle segment in the Indian market. With its refined engine and smooth ride, the motorcycle made a huge customer base in its initial days. The bike entered into its second generation with new design, features and a more refined engine.
