German motorcycle manufacturer BMW Motorrad is set to enter India this very month and it will be bringing most of range of motorcycles into the country.
Unfortunately for Bimmer fans in India, Overdrive is reporting that the G310R, the entry level BMW motorcycle, which is manufactured in India will not be launched with the rest of the range this month.
Instead, the entry-level BMW motorcycle is currently making its way through the red tape madness that is homologation and paperwork for motorcycles trying to enter India.
Heiner Faust, BMW Motorrad Vice President - Sales and Marketing indicated to Overdrive at the 2016 Intermot Motorcycle Show that negotiating the homologation process and the paperwork has has delayed the launch of the G310R.
The BMW G310R is manufactured at the TVS manufacturing facility in Hosur, Tamil Nadu as part of an agreement between BMW and TVS Motors.
The G310R is powered by a single-cylinder 313cc engine that produces 33bhp and 28Nm of torque. The engine sends the power to the rear wheel through a 6-speed gearbox.
The BMW G310R was unveiled at the EICMA Motorcycle Show last November in the Italian city of Milan. The motorcycle made its debut in India at the 2016 Auto Expo in February.
