Motorbikes with AHO feature available in Indian retailer

Retail showrooms in India’s Visakhapatnam have started to sell two-wheelers with the Automatic Headlamp On (AHO) feature that was mandated by the government from April.

“As per the new BS-IV guidelines, all upcoming motorbikes are being manufactured with the AHO provision like the ‘Daytime Running Lamps’ found on cars. We have sold nearly 2,000 such vehicles in the city,” said A Srinivas, CEO of Varun Bajaj two-wheeler showroom at Siripuram Junction.

“The new system can prevent accidents. This apart, the new BS-IV rules are also environment friendly,” Srinivas added. Two-wheelers contribute 56.2% of pollution to the environment.

“The BS IV vehicle engines can cut down the emissions by 80%.”

The AHO is said to improve visibility of two-wheelers during the day and night.
