German motorcycle manufacturer BMW Motorrad is all set to launch the G 310 R and the G 310 GS in the Indian market on July 18, 2018. Ahead of that Autocar India has spotted the India-spec BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS. Both the motorcycles are already sold in several global markets.
BMW Motorrad showcased both the G 310 R and the G 310 GS at the Auto Expo 2018 and we already know the specifications of the bikes. The only thing missing is the pricing and that will be revealed tomorrow. The overall design of both the bikes remains similar to the export model.
The India-spec BMW G 310 R is equipped with a saree guard, which is mandatory in India and without that the bikes will not be registered at the RTO. Apart from that, there are no changes made to both the bikes as compared to the global-spec models.
The BMW G 310 R is a naked streetfighter and it features a trellis frame. The bike gets premium cycle parts such as upside down forks at the front and monoshock suspension at the rear. The aggressive tank shrouds and stepped-up seat gives the motorcycle a sporty look.
On the other hand, the BMW G 310 GS is an adventure motorcycle. The G 310 GS comes equipped with a large windscreen, beak-shape front fender and a luggage rack at the rear. The G 310 GS also gets long-travel suspension set up, large front wheels and dual-purpose tyres.
The BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS are powered by a 313cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 33.5bhp and 28Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. Braking duties are handled by disc brakes at both the ends with dual-channel ABS.
Both the bikes are manufactured at TVS plant in Hosur and we can expect a competitive pricing from BMW Motorrad. The bookings for the motorcycles have already commenced and you can book one by making an advanced payment of Rs 50,000.
