    Default Hero MotoCorp BS-VI: First manufacturer to get the certification

    Hero MotoCorp has become the first two-wheeler manufacturer in the country, to receive the BS-VI certification for a two-wheeler. Hero MotoCorp received the Type Approval Certificate from International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT) for the Splendor iSmart motorcycle, after it was successfully tested for compliance to the BS-VI emission norms.

    Following the Type Approval process - in which a manufacturer is required to build a prototype and get it tested & certified from any of the Govt approved test agencies - ICAT, ARAI or GARC - the manufacturer is eligible to start the manufacturing of the certified model.

    Mr. Dinesh Tyagi, Director - ICAT said, “We congratulate Hero MotoCorp for becoming the country’s first two-wheeler manufacturer to get the BS-VI certification. The Type Approval Certificate was issued to the Company’s Splendor iSmart motorcycle that has been developed and manufactured indigenously by Hero MotoCorp. Last year ICAT issued the country’s first approval for BS-VI norms for Heavy Commercial Vehicle (HCV) segment also. The BS-VI emission standards are much more elaborate in their scope and integrate substantial changes to existing emission standards ensuring cleaner products to the consumer.”

    ICAT is the premier testing and certification agency authorized by Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MORTH) for giving testing and certification services to the vehicle and component manufacturers situated within India and abroad.

    Yes they are, but they probably did not apply for BS6 certification to keep the cost of the bike low, so on paper they are BS4. Someone knowledgeable should explain how getting a BS6 certificate raises the cost of BS6 bikes?

    Same with the new SF150 and SF250
