BMW Motorrad has confirmed that both its single-cylinder bikes, the G310R and G310 GS will be launched in India next year.
BMW Motorrad has urged the drooling of eyes by every Indian for the latest updates on its sub-500cc motorcycle, BMW G310R since 2014 and it extinguished this hunger on 16th November 2016 as it made an official communication on Twitter mentioning that the G310R will be launched in India in Spring 2017 i.e. March-May.
A naked chassis hooded by a chunky tank with a capacity of 11-litres embraces the BMW insignia. At the heart of the BMW G310R is a 313cc single-cylinder engine which churns out a maximum power of 33.6 HP and produces a peak torque of 28 Nm. It flaunts an upside down fork at the front and a directly hinged monoshock at the rear with concern to its suspension. The BMW G310R is said to be having a kerb weight of approximately 158.5 kgs and will be delivering a top speed of 145 km/hr.
BMW Motorrad will also launch the G310 GS adventure motorbike in 2017. The much awaited stand by for the G310R has relieved Indians to a large extent, as they have been eagerly waiting to hear from BMW since 2014.
The BMW G310 GS is an adventurer tourer and will go on sale by November 2017 and while neither bikes have a direct competitor, the German motorcycles will be competing with the Kawasaki Z250, KTM Duke 390 and Mahindra Mojo.
The G310 series is being produced at TVS’ Hosur plant and will be first exported to Europe before being available for the domestic market. BMW will take special care of its inventory as the news of G310R has created great demand within India since 2014. The G310R is expected to be competitively priced between 1.85-2.2 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) while the adventure model will cost close to Rs. 2.5 lakhs.
