Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) is all set to be implemented from April 1, 2020. This means that only those vehicles can be sold and registered, which are BS6 compliant, across the country. Many four-wheeler manufacturers have already started selling BS6 models but two-wheeler manufacturers are yet to play catch-up. Making a two-wheeler BS6 compliant means re-working the engine components, exhaust setup and this in turn results in significant increase in costs as well. There are only a handful of Bharat Stage VI compliant two-wheeler models on sale in India and here’s a complete list.
Hero Splendor iSmart BS6 – Prices start from ₹ 64,900
(New Hero Splendor iSmart BS-VI has a new chassis with more suspension travel and increased ground clearance)
Hero MotoCorp launched India’s first BS6 motorcycle, the new Hero Splendor iSmart with fuel injection a few weeks ago. It is priced at ₹ 64,900 and there are quite a few updates on the model apart from the obvious. The bike is built around a new frame, features Hero’s patented idle start stop system and the engine too offers 10 per cent more torque across the rev range. Plus, the suspension travel has been increased along with the wheelbase as well. In fact, Hero MotoCorp was the first two-wheeler manufacturer in India to get BS6 certification.

The new Honda Activa 125 FI is at least 10-13 per cent more fuel efficient than the outgoing model, and the scooter also gets an idle stop system, which automatically switches off the engine at traffic lights, and brief stops.
