One of the most awaited launch people are waiting for is the BMW G310R. Again, one question that lingered in everybody's mind was the pricing since BMW is known to be on the expensive side.
But that's not what it is. BMW seems to have priced the motorcycle cheaper than its rival, KTM. According to a dealer in the UK, the BMW G310R is to retail for GBP 4,290 (3.88 lakh). If one is wondering that it is way more than the Duke, hold on.
That is the pricing of the motorcycle including export duties, since the BMW G310R will be made by TVS in Hosur. So, if the motorcycle was to retail here, it would sell for approximately Rs. 1.8 lakh. That is like the last nail in the coffin for KTM.
In the UK, the KTM Duke 390 made by Bajaj in India sells for approximately Rs. 4.12 lakh, but in India, it is priced at Rs. 2.15 lakh on-road.
