TVS has manufactured 50,000 units of the BMW G 310 R in India.
The long-term strategic partnership between TVS Motor Company and BMW Motorrad has achieved yet another milestone after the 50,000th BMW G 310 R was rolled out from Hosur plant of TVS. The 50,000th motorcycle rolled out in the presence of Dr. Markus Schramm, Head of BMW Motorrad and Mr. KN Radhakrishnan, Director and CEO, TVS Motor Company.
The collaboration between TVS and BMW is to oversee manufacturing of sub-500cc motorcycles. The partnership gave birth to a new 310cc platform. The BMW G 310 R, BMW G 310 GS and TVS Apache RR 310 are underpinned by the 310cc platform. Exports for the BMW 310 twins started back in December 2016. The BMW 310cc twins are exported to 90 countries, however, the BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS were launched in India earlier this year. Meanwhile, the TVS Apache RR 310 went on sale in 2017 here in India.
A 313cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, mated to a 6-speed transmission powers the BMW 310cc twins. It produces 34 BHP of peak power and 28 Nm of peak torque while both the bikes get dual-channel ABS as standard.
BMW is offering benefits of up to Rs. 70,000/- as year-end cash discounts, free insurance, reduced rate of interest and more. The BMW G 310 R retails at Rs. 2.99 lakhs and the BMW G 310 GS at Rs. 3.49 lakhs (both prices ex-showroom, India).
