BMW Motorrad recently launched their small capacity twins, the G 310 R and the G 310 GS in India. The BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS are the most affordable product offerings from the German brand in India. The two motorcycles were first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo.
One of our readers have now shared with us, the first service bill for their new BMW G 310 GS. The total overall cost for the first service of the G 310 GS comes up to Rs 4,584.
The total cost is split up into two bills, with one showing an amount of Rs 1,939 and the second bill of Rs 2,915.
As seen from the bill, the first service of the motorcycle includesrunning-in check, programming and testing the control unit software, engine oil change, oil filter and gasket ring change and bike cleaning.
Of this, BMW Motorrad has charged the customer Rs 1,793 and Rs 1,556 for the running-in check and engine oil change, respectively. The bill also includes Rs 672 for testing the software on the control unit and Rs 450 for cleaning the motorcycle.
These are extremely high prices for a 300cc segment motorcycle's first service. To put things in perspective, the first service cost of the TVS Apache RR310 (based on the BMW G 310 twins) is just around Rs 1,400.
The G 310 R and GS might be the cheapest offering from BMW Motorrad but they are nothing short of expensive when compared to other motorcycles in the 300cc segment.
Compared to the Apache RR 310, the engines on the G 310 twins do not showcase any major upgradation. For the same reason, many have raised their concern about the rather high service cost.
One more thing to keep in mind is that this is just the first service and the upcoming ones will cost even more. Parts would also come at a premium making the bike's ownership a bit on the expensive side.
However, the two motorcycles are really good for what they are and showcase the German brand's excellent build quality and engineering expertise.

Thoughts On The BMW G 310 GS Service Cost
The service cost of the BMW G 310 GS is nothing short of expensive. With the first service itself costing Rs 4,584, the ownership of the motorcycle is only going to increase over time.
