Honda to launch India’s first BS6 two-wheeler on June 12

Honda is calling the shift to BS6 ‘a quiet revolution’, implying a smooth and refined engine.

Honda has revealed that it will launch its first BS6 two-wheeler on June 12. The two-wheeler will not only be its first, but also India’s first BS6 two-wheeler. The company teased the launch with a video of a pin falling with text that reads “please hold a pin drop silence.”

Interestingly, Honda has also said that the launch of its first BS6 two-wheeler is part of ‘a quiet revolution’, which at first suggests that it would be an electric offering. However the company has said it is a BS6 product, which means an EV is out of the question. What Honda could be implying with ‘pin drop silence’ and ‘a quiet revolution’ could be the refinement and smoothness that comes with a fuel-injected motor, as the company had announced that would be the way it would make its two-wheelers BS6 compliant. We’ll get to know further details about the two-wheeler on June 12, like what its power source is, and whether this is an upgraded product from the current line up or an all-new offering.

It’ll be interesting to see whether a scooter or a motorcycle from Honda will lead the charge in the shift to BS6.
