BMW Motorrad has already announced that the G 310 R and the G 310 GS will be launched in the Indian market on July 18, 2018. Ahead of that the German motorcycle maker has updated the G 310 R with new colours. Apart from the new paint scheme the rest of the bike remains unchanged.
The BMW G 310 R gets a new Racing Red colour option similar to the TVS Apache RR 310. Apart from the red paint scheme, the G 310 R also gets an HP Motorsport colour option finished in pearl white colour with HP lettering. BMW has discontinued the Strato Blue Metallic while the Cosmic Black colour will be retained.
BMW Motorrad will launch the G 310 R alongside the G 310 GS in India and we expect BMW to introduce the motorcycles with the new colour options. Apart from the new colours, the G 310 R does not get any updates to the mechanical components and design.
The BMW G 310 R will be the most affordable bike from the stable of German motorcycle manufacturer. The G 310 R has been developed by BMW Motorrad and it is manufactured at TVS Motor Company's plant in Hosur near Bangalore. The G 310 R was first unveiled in India in 2016 and it has been a long wait for the launch of the bike in the country.
BMW Motorrad wanted to have a strong network of dealerships before the introduction of the G 310 R and G 310 GS in the country. So, there was a delay in the launch of the 310 twins in the Indian market. The BMW G 310 GS will be the most affordable adventure bike from BMW Motorrad.
The BMW G 310 GS draws power from a 313cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine producing 33.5bhp and 28Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The same engine does its duty on the TVS Apache RR 310. We expect BMW to tune the engine slightly differently for the G 310 GS.
Thoughts On The BMW G 310 R
The BMW G 310 R will be the entry-level offering from the German manufacturer. The G 310 R is one of the most anticipated bikes in the country and it will be finally launched this month. We expect the BMW G 310 R to be priced around Rs 3.5 lakh. The BMW G 310 R will rival the likes of KTM Duke 390 and the Bajaj Dominar 400.
