BMW Motorrad India will officially open pre-bookings for the BMW G 310 R and the BMW G 310 GS from June 8, 2018. The Bavaria-based brand has set the booking amount at Rs 50,000 for both bikes.
There is no word on the price but, according to the dealers, the G 310 R is expected to be priced at around Rs 3 lakh, while the G 310 GS will be priced around Rs 3.5 lakh (both prices, on-road). At present, BMW has only said that deliveries will be done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
The German bike maker had showcased both, the bikes at 2018 Auto Expo. Though the G 310 R was also shown earlier at the 2016 Auto Expo, this year’s expo marked the GS’ India debut. The adventure-touring-oriented G 310 GS has been developed by BMW Motorrad in Germany and, like the G 310 R, is built at TVS' plant in Hosur, India. The baby GS inherits its family styling, including the stubby front beak, radiator shrouds, headlamp cowl and tank design.
The G 310 R and G 310 GS will come with a reversed-cylinder design that slopes towards the rear wheel, instead of the conventional engine layout. This engine is a 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder unit with four valves and a DOHC cylinder head. It churns out 34hp of power and 28Nm of torque on both bikes and is paired to a six-speed gearbox. Both bikes also get tubular steel frames, five-spoke alloy wheels and ABS. The kerb weights for the G 310 R and G 310 GS are 158.5kg and 169.5kg, respectively.
