Honda2Wheelers, the largest scooter manufacturer in India, has revised the prices of its line-up post the implementation of the GST on July 1, 2017. Most models have received minor cuts owing to the reduced tax slab which now stands at 28 per cent. The best-selling scooter in India, the Activa 4G has seen a reduction of about INR 442 and now retails at INR 50,730. The slightly more powerful sibling, the Activa 125 also received an identical cut with the new prices standing at INR 61,361. The sportier Honda Dio now sells for INR 49,293 – INR 328 lower than the pre-GST prices.
The motorcycles too have seen similar cuts. The variations vary from INR 469 on the commuter-class Shine to INR 724 on the popular Hornet 160R. The models can now be bought for INR 61,047 and INR 86,313 respectively. The SP variant of Shine is also available for INR 65,161.
It is interesting to note that the changes in prices of two-wheelers are very insignificant as compared to that seen on multiple cars. Some experts believe that despite the actual reduction in costs at the ex-showroom level, many bikes might see an overall increase in prices when they hit the road owing to the increase in the tax rates on the insurance services.
