In the upcoming fiscal year’s budget, the government has announced a tax cut specifically for motorcycles in the 200-400 cc range. As a result, the excise duty on motorcycles within the 250–400 cc segment has been reduced from 90% to 70%. Similarly, motorcycles assembled in Nepal will now have an excise duty of 30%. Additionally, the road construction fee has been reduced from Rs 50,000 to Rs 20,000. These changes aim to make motorcycles in this range more affordable and encourage their production and use. Consequently, the price of the Dominar 400 has been reduced from its previous amount of Rs 6,59,900 to a more accessible price of Rs 5,99,900, effective from 1st June 2023.
