After an apex court order which has asked the Government to implement BS-IV emission norms starting April 1, 2017, there’s a huge inventory of BS-III vehicles which is yet to be sold. Since today is the last day before the new norms take effect, most car manufacturers have reportedly cleared the stockpile, however, two-wheeler companies are still offering heavy discounts. Although the dealer in your neighborhood might offer you a deal which isn’t listed here, we tell you how much you can expect to save if you go out and buy yourself a BS-III two-wheeler. Before you put the money down though, ensure with the dealer that your new purchase will be registered before the new BS-IV norms take effect and everything’s smooth.
Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India is offering heavy discounts on their entire line-up. The most tempting offer we’ve heard until now is the one offered by a dealer in Pune, who’s giving away a Navi free with every purchase of either a Honda CBR 150, or a 250. The Honda Navi on its own is available at a discounted price, retailing for Rs. 31,000 on-road, instead of its actual price of Rs. 51,000. The immensely popular Honda Activa i is available with a flat discount of Rs. 14,500, the Dio and Aviator can be bought with a flat discount of Rs. 13,500, while the CB 125 Shine SP and CB Shine are being offered with a discount of Rs. 18,300. The Dream Yuga is available with a discount of Rs.18,500, while a similar discount is being offered on the Disc and Drum variants of the Honda Livo, the CB Unicorn 160, Honda Hornet and the CB Unicorn.
The BS-III Mahindra Mojo is being offered with a flat discount of Rs.30,000, while BS-III models of the Hero Maestro Edge and the Hero Duet 110cc scooter are being offered with a flat discount of Rs. 12,500. TVS is said to be offering up to Rs.20,000 off on its BS-III products. Its rival Bajaj is offering a flat discount of up to Rs.15,000 on the Pulsar RS 200 BS-III.
Apparently, Yamaha isn’t offering any discount on its products and is already ready with two-wheelers which meet the new norms. But you may check with your nearest dealer.
For those who’ve been waiting to buy a big machine, Ducati India is offering a discount of up to Rs. 2.7 lakh on the BS-III Monster 821, has slashed Rs. 2.5 lakh off the Scrambler and Rs 2 lakh off the Diavel.

Triumph is said to be offering up to Rs 3 lakh off on its cruiser motorcycles, Rs 1 lakh off on the Daytona and up to Rs. 80,000 off on its adventure machines. These discounts are the ones we know about and if you visit the retailer and bargain, the offer could be even better. But make sure you get an invoice which has today’s date and confirm with the dealer that the vehicle will be registered after your purchase. Happy Shopping!
