That said, when the 2017 Duet is launched, it will feature a BS-IV compliant engine and Auto Headlamp On feature that will help it meet the upcoming norms. Coming back to integrated brakes and a mobile charging socket, even the Duet will feature it. Apart from this, it offers a classy semi-digital speedo console and an external fuel-filler cap.
