Team OD Updated: March 11, 2020, 05:18 PM IST

If you had been planning to get a premium motorcycle in India, now is the right time. This very month to be extremely precise. Come April 1, 2020, and all automobile manufacturers in the country will only be selling BSVI compliant vehicles. Since this government had already given ample time to the automobile manufacturers for the BSIV to BSVI transition, most of the dealers have already exhausted the old stocks of the popular models. It is only the lesser selling models that the dealers have a stock of. Dealers across the country are offering discounts on these models but not to the extent at which the BSIII models were sold three years ago when the BSIV transition took place. The discounts that are being offered on BSIV vehicles are at a dealership level and can vary from dealer to dealer. Here's a quick look at some of the premium motorcycles that can be availed on discount.
