Harley-Davidson India is not the only premium motorcycle brand that is offering compelling discounts for BS4 models
As the BS6 deadline draws closer, Harley-Davidson India is offering hefty discounts on its leftover BS4 models. The discounts range up to Rs 2 lakh on models such as the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy, Fat Bob, Sportster and Street. However, individual dealers are offering even more lucrative discounts on a case-to-case basis.
Depending on the dealership and product availability, the figures can extend to up to Rs 4 lakh. The much-desired Harley-Davidson Fat Bob’s BS4 model is offered at a discount of Rs 1.5 lakh. In the Harley-Davidson Sportster range, models such as the Iron 883, 1200 Custom, Roadster and Forty-Eight, gets discounts up to Rs 75,000 while the figures lie between Rs 25,000-35,000 on the Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street Rod.

It is a known fact that no BS4 models will be allowed for sale or registration after 31 March 2020. Dealerships of various makes and vehicle categories, if left with BS4 products post the deadline, have no other choice than to scrap them, sell to the manufacturer or use internally. Now, dealers are facing a new problem in the form of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — know more details.
