Starting April 1, 2017, only vehicles which comply with BS IV emission norms will be allowed to be sold in India. This may not be as big of a problem for four-wheeler manufacturers because most of the cars do comply with the norm whereas when it comes to two-wheeler manufacturers, they have been under pressure to clear their BS III stock. This has resulted in almost every two-wheeler manufacturer handing out lucrative deals unlike ever before and one of the most interesting ones is being given out by Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HMSI).
As per their website, the company is offering discounts of up to Rs 22,000 on their products.
According to reports, Honda two wheeler dealers have informed that the Navi is being sold at a discount of Rs 20,000 on its on-road price which is around Rs 50,000 depending on which city you live in. This makes the Honda Navi available at an on-road price of around Rs 30,000, making its ex-showroom price lower than some popular smartphones like the OnePlus 3T. That's not it, some dealers are also offering the Honda Navi as complimentary, in other words for free, if you purchase a Honda CBR 150 or a CBR 250.
Keep in mind, though, these discounts are being offered just for today since it is the last day that allows BS III compliant motorcycles to be sold.
There are several other discounts to look at too, you can check them all out here.
