Hero MotoCorp will update all its models by April 2017 to make them compliant with the upcoming rules. The new rules are expected to make features like Automatic Headlamp On and ABS compulsory on all two-wheelers. The manufacturer is working towards making its entire range comply with the rules by April 2017.

The automaker will also update the engines on the current range of scooters and motorcycles to make them BS-IV compliant. Hero already has the BS-IV compliant vehicles in the form of the new Achiever 150 and Hero Splendor iSmart 110.

The upcoming regulations will also make it compulsory for two-wheelers to come with some sort of combined braking systems. The manufacturer already has Integrated Braking System (IBS) in its range of scooters. Hero also claims that they are working on preparing their products for BS-VI emission norms which will become applicable in April 2020.

Hero is also looking to expand internationally. Currently they are having a presence in 20 markets, it plans to enter 10 more markets. The new products will be developed at the Centre of Innovation and Technology (CIT) in Jaipur.

With stricter norms, more manufacturers are expected to introduce these features on their products. The government finally seems to have taken a positive step towards ensuring road safety in India on the part of the manufacturer. Still, we have a long way to go before Indian vehicles and roads become safe upto international standards at least.
