With this move Steelbird aims at covering the pecking order - that is, mass customers to premium customers. These helmets will be priced between Rs 10,000 to Rs. 50,000. Alongside this new affiliation with Blauer HT, Steelbird will soon unveil the new range of helmets in different colours and combinations while keeping up with safety standards.
