Hero MotoCorp, the world's largest two-wheeler manufacturer, 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 for the Splendor iSmart motorcycle, after it was successfully tested for compliance to the BS-VI emission norms. The BS-VI compliant motorcycle has been designed and developed in-house, at the Company's R&D hub, the Center of Innovation and Technology in Jaipur, Rajasthan.

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.

With this, Hero MotoCorp has reaffirmed its commitment to be ready for the BS-VI transition much ahead of the April 1, 2020 deadline. The Company has the technological prowess for meeting the BS-VI norms and will now be gearing up to make its large portfolio of motorcycles and scooters BS-VI compliant.
