With the New Year, stricter BS6 emission norms for automobiles were introduced in the country. The addition of fuel-injected BS6 engines (a must for BS6 compliance) saw fuel-efficiency figures dropping even with the best mileage bikes. Moreover, the rise in fuel prices has further forced buyers to look for low-fuel consuming two-wheelers.
The bike vs scooter debate is largely centered on mileage versus convenience. Scooters prove to be more practical as they offer storage space and gearless acceleration, which are a necessity in congested city traffic. So, which are the best BS6 scooters you can buy in 2020? Let’s find out:
