BMW Motorrad BS6 G 310 Twins Launched, Priced From Rs. 2.45 Lakhs
The entry-level motorcycles from the German firm have become more appealing with the latest set of upgrades.
BMW Motorrad has launched the BS6-compliant G 310 R with a price tag of Rs. 2.45 lakhs and G 310 GS at Rs. 2.85 lakhs (both prices ex-showroom) in India.
The two entry-level motorcycles from the German firm have received minor tweaks along with the updated engine this time around.
Both the naked and adventure-oriented bikes now get new LED headlamp with DRL, LED indicators, LED tail light, new colour schemes and body graphics.
Thus, the BS6 G 310 R price will get customers new paint schemes such as Cosmic Black, Polar White and for an additional Rs. 10,000/- “Style Sport” Limestone Metallic.
In the case of the BS6 G 310 GS however, three new paint schemes including Polar White and for an extra Rs. 6000/-, “Style Rallye” in Kyanit Blue Metallic and “40 Years Of GS” edition, that comes in Cosmic Black with yellow graphics, have been introduced.
In both bikes, the covers for the engine, clutch, alternator and water pump come in a new Titanium Grey colour finish. Also new are the 4-level adjustable brake and clutch levers.
What is not new though is the instrument console that remains the same LCD panel. But what is also new on the bikes is ride-by-wire tech or electronic throttle grip in BMW lingo.
Engine remains the same 313cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder unit that is more kinder to the environment, putting out 34 HP and 28 Nm. While the 6-speed gearbox remains the same, the self-boosting anti-hopping clutch is new. Top speed of the bike is rated at 143 km/hr.
One other thing BMW has concentrated on is finance schemes. The G 310 R can now be had with a low EMI payment of Rs. 4500/- and G 310 GS for Rs. 5500/-. The bikes come with 3 years/unlimited km warranty as standard and it can also be extended for two more years.
By reducing the prices of its entry-level motorcycles, BMW has given itself a better chance of gaining more sales this time. Let us hope the market grants BMW its wishes.
