The waiting period of G310 GS now extends to three months in India and it is expected to come down in coming months as TVS is planning to increase production
BMW officially launched the G310 GS in India on July 18 at Rs. 3.49 lakh (Ex-Showroom). Even though the adventure motorcycle was priced at a premium there were so many people eagerly waiting for the bike to come out as the options in this segment are very limited and the alternative was either R.E Himalayan or Kawasaki Versys X-300.
The waiting period of G310 GS now extends to three months in India and it is expected to come down in coming months as TVS is planning to increase production. The G310 R and G310 GS are manufactured at the Hosur plant of TVS for the global markets and export demand have also gone up in the recent months.
The G310 twins are designed and developed by BMW Motorrad in Germany. One of the reasons for popularity is the design of G310 GS as it follows the same footsteps of big brothers.
BMW G310 GS is powered by 313 cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled, reverse-inclined engine with fuel injection producing 34 bhp of power at 9,500 rpm and 28 NM of torque at 7,500 rpm. This engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and the adventure model offer good performance. The claimed top speed of G310 GS is 143 kph.
The braking duties are handled by 4-piston calliper 300 mm front disc brake and single piston calliper 240 mm disc brake at the rear. BMW has also given dual channel ABS as part of the standard package. The G310 GS gets 41 mm upside down forks at the front and a pre-load adjustable mono shock at rear with 180 mm travel at both ends.
BMW has given 5 spoke 19-inch alloy wheels with 110/80 section tyre at the front and 17-inch with 150/70 section rear tyres. The adventure bike comes with dual-sport Metzeler Tourance for optimal grip on-road and off-road. The company offers three colour options with G310 GS – Racing Red, Cosmic Black and Pearl White Metallic.
