Yamaha To Introduce BS6 Compliant Two-Wheelers By November 2019 In IndiaPosted on: August 13, 2019, by : Anindita Ghosh
Yamaha Motor India has announced that it will be rolling out the BS6 compliant versions of its two-wheelers from November this year, ahead of the April 2020 deadline. The company in a statement said that it plans to introduce the BS6 compliant motorcycles first by early November 2019, while the scooters will follow suit by January 2020. The hike in production cost for launching the BS6 variants will impact the final pricing that is set to increase by 10-15 per cent, depending on the model. It’s unclear at the moment as to which motorcycles will get the BS6 compliance first.
In addition, Yamaha also confirmed that it will standardise the side stand switch feature on select two-wheelers in a bid to offset the increased costs. The safety feature prevents the engine to start till the side stand is withdrawn completely. Apart from the feature addition, Yamaha could introduce new graphics, colours and cosmetic changes on select two-wheelers for a fresh new look.
