Hero MotoCorp said it has increased production of its BS-VI vehicles, while discontinuing the launch of several BS-IV models in an effort to completely migrate to the new era of emissions. It stopped the production of more than 50 variants of its range of BS-IV models, while rapidly increasing the production of BS-VI vehicles. RKL BAL
