After making us wait for years, BMW Motorrad has announced the pricing for the G 310 R and G 310 GS entry-level motorcycles. The naked version- BMW G 310 R is priced at Rs 2.99 lakh, while the lightweight Adventure motorcycle, G 310 GS has been priced at Rs 3.49 lakh. The industry experts were speculating on the price for long and BMW Motorrad has undercut their estimations by a big margin. However, it still commands a premium over the popular KTM Duke 390.

Project BMW 310
BMW’s entry-level twins are a result of companies partnership with TVS Motors. In this joint-venture, TVS Motors took the responsibility of manufacturing G 310 R and G 310 GS in India, and BMW Motorrad focussed on engineering and branding. This project has also resulted in the development of a new 310cc engine that also powers the TVS Apache RR 310.
BMW is offering a very good warranty package along with the bike. This includes 3-year coverage with unlimited mileage. BMW Motorrad dealers have already received the motorcycles and the deliveries have begun. The next lot will be arriving soon that will help reduce the waiting period.
Engine & Gearbox
Both, G 310 R and G 310 GS share the same platform. This includes a 313cc reversed single cylinder engine that churns out 35 PS of power and 28 Nm of torque. It is a liquid cooled unit with a DOHC (double overhead cam) cylinder head design. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The chassis is tubular steel frame design with monoshock at the rear.
