The 250cc to 800cc range has experienced the biggest unprecedented growth in practically every market – especially in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. It is a great opportunity for NAZA to become one of the key players in this range of bikes and we are taking every possible measure to ensure that we keep up with the trend,” he added.
