BS6 norms to hike Yamaha bike, scooter prices by 10-15 percent

Yamaha’s shift to BS6 will begin in November 2019 for motorcycles, and in January 2020 for its scooters.

A couple of weeks ago, Yamaha announced that the shift to BS6 will increase prices by 10-15 percent on average, depending on the product. The company also said that the transition will begin in November 2019 for its motorcycles and January 2020 for the company’s scooters.

While the company hasn’t said anything about the changes its two-wheelers will receive to become BS6-compliant, we can expect them to use fuel-injection instead of a carburettor as the fueling method. Along with fuel-injection, the bikes are also expected to get revised exhaust systems.

Yamaha has also said that it will offset the increase in cost by offering features like a ‘side stand switch’. This feature prevents the engine from starting up until the side stand is withdrawn completely.
