Just for Today: Heavy Discounts on Ducati, Harley and Hero Bikes

We Indians love a good discount, and it barely matters how good the deal actually is. But with the Bharat Stage III to Bharat Stage IV ruling coming into effect from 1 April (no, it’s not an April Fool’s joke), auto companies have gone on a discount spree to sell off their existing BS III stock.

With 6.71 lakh two-wheelers, out of over 8 lakh BS III vehicles impacted by the ban, dealers say the immediate effort is to sell as many units as possible before the deadline by offering “unheard of” discounts in the industry.

Companies like Hero MotoCorp, HMSI, Bajaj Auto and Suzuki Motorcycle, along with premium brands like Ducati and Triumph, are joining the discount bandwagon.

Sadly, car-makers aren’t offering any such deals, but if you’re in the market for a two-wheeler, then here’s what you can consider:

Hero MotoCorp

Bajaj is probably the least worried about the BS III to BS IV transition, but you still have a couple of options worth going for.

On top of that, you can also get free insurance done for any of these two-wheelers bought by the end of Friday.
