Are you planning to buy a motorcycle for your business or startup? It's important to know the GST rates and HSN code for motorcycles in India. GST or Goods and Services Tax is a tax on the supply of goods and services. It was introduced in India in July 2017 to replace multiple indirect taxes like excise duty, service tax, and VAT.

What is HSN Code?

HSN or Harmonized System of Nomenclature is a globally accepted system of names and numbers to classify goods. It was developed by the World Customs Organization and is used for customs and trade purposes. HSN codes are used to classify goods based on their nature, type, and other characteristics.

GST Rates for Motorcycles

The GST rates for motorcycles in India depend on the engine capacity of the motorcycle. Here are the GST rates for motorcycles:

1. Less than or equal to 350cc – 28%

2. More than 350cc – 28%

So, whether you're buying a motorcycle with a small engine or a big one, the GST rate remains the same at 28%.

HSN Code for Motorcycles

The HSN code for motorcycles is 8711. HSN code 8711 includes all types of motorcycles, including mopeds, scooters, motorized bicycles, and other two-wheelers powered by an internal combustion engine or an electric motor. HSN code 8711 also includes parts and accessories for motorcycles.


Now that you know the GST rates and HSN code for motorcycles, you can make an informed decision when buying a motorcycle for your business or startup. Remember to check the engine capacity and the HSN code before making a purchase. This will help you avoid any confusion or issues related to GST and HSN codes.
