New Safety Rules  For Motorcycle By Centre | Handholds, Saree Guards Mandatory



The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways notified the Central Motor Vehicles (seventh amendment) Rules 2020 and accordingly issued a gazette notification amending the 
Central Motor Vehicles Rules 1989.

As per the amended rules, manufacturers of two-wheelers having a provision for a pillion rider should ensure handholds on the side of the motorcycle or behind the driver seat and should comply with the requirements specified in the rules.

Besides providing footrests for pillion riders on both sides of the vehicle, manufacturers should provide protective devices covering half of the rear wheel to prevent the clothes of the person sitting on the pillion getting entangled in it.

Apart from this, the ministry has also issued guidelines for putting lighter containers in the bike. The length of this container is 550 mm, width 510 ml and height shall not exceed 500 mm. If the container is placed at the place of the previous ride, only the driver will be approved.

The Centre said the footrests of two-wheelers manufactured from 1 January 2022 should comply with the requirements specified in Automotive Industry Standards (AIS) till the corresponding BIS specifications are notified under the Bureau of Indian Standards Act.

Motorcycle Aftermarket Headlight 

According to our team's recent conversation with senior RTO personnel, fog lights are allowed on bikes if they are mounted below the headlight and total power consumption is less or equal to the headlight. Also, the user must remember, fog lights always have the yellow beam as they scatter less because of their high wavelength. Thus can increase visibility during the foggy conditions (advised to turn off the headlight). All other colored lights come under Aux lights and are not allowed.(read more)
