WILL"ABS" BECOME MANDATORY FROM APRIL 2018 ?? CHECK OUT THE ANSWER !!

In March, the Ministry of Road Transport and highways, issued a notification which says that from April 2018, all two-wheelers which have a displacement of more than 125cc will need to have Anti-lock Braking system. Not as an option, but a mandatory fitment.
There are a lot of people who are waiting for 1 April 2018. Among them are Auto manufacturers and customers. 

WILL ABS BECOME COMPULSORY FROM 1st APRIL 2018 ?

If you’re looking to buy a new motorcycle and are worried that from April 1st 2018, the same non-ABS model of yours will get an ABS then don’t worry because the rule to make it mandatory from 1 April 2018 is only for those motorcycles which are going to be launched after that date. It means that if you want to buy a new Royal Enfield Classic 350, then go ahead and buy it because it won’t get an ABS from April 1st. It will, however get an ABS eventually in the near future just not after 1st April.

According to the circular from the Government, all the bikes above 125 cc or with more than 14 BHP of power, which will be launched after the 1st of April are required to have an ABS system onboard. Even the quality of how the ABS should be is also mentioned in the circular.

The compulsion of ABS for new bikes will certainly result in an increase of around Rs 8000 in the price of every new bike which is scheduled to launch on or after 1st April 2018.
