Thoughts About The BS6 Compliant Hero Xtreme 200 And Xpulse 200T

Some manufacturers are still upgrading their offerings to meet BS6 compliance, and would have achieved the task if not for the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent lock down that was called for. We expect manufacturers to have their entire portfolio upgrade to meet BS6 compliance over the next month or two.
