With the deadline approaching, top two-wheeler manufacturers have made a successful transition towards BS-IV. The deadline for manufacturers to comply with the new norms is April 1, 2017.
Bajaj was one of the first manufacturers to fully comply with the new BS-IV norms ahead of the deadline, followed by other manufacturers such as TVS, Hero MotoCorp, Honda, and KTM.
One of the largest two-wheeler manufacturer who has not complied with the new norms yet is Royal Enfield, but the Chennai-based manufacturer has said all its models will be BS-IV compliant by April.
Also, BS-IV compliant vehicles have seen a marginal increase in price owing to the cost involved in manufacturing them. At this point, manufacturers who still sell BS-III norm vehicles have an advantage over price and will try and make their best before the deadline.
Manufacturers are also taking the opportunity to introduce new features on vehicles such as charging sockets, new colours, and even the Always Headlight On (AHO) option, which is mandatory for two-wheelers.
