The GST rate for two-wheelers (bikes, scooters and mopeds) is 28 percent. However, there’s a 3 percent cess on two-wheelers with engines displacing more than 350cc. On quick calculations, it’s pretty easy to see that bikes with below-350cc engines won’t see a rise in their prices. However, the 3 percent cess will affect manufacturers like KTM, which might ultimately decide to increase the prices to offset the loss in their profit margins.
