Some dealers of BMW Motorrad has started accepting bookings for G310R and G310 GS in India. The booking amount is Rs. 50,000 and it is completely refundable
BMW G310R and G310 GS made their Indian debut at the 2018 Auto Expo. The G310R is the first product to come out of BMW-TVS partnership and the Apache RR 310 engine is based on this bike. Even though both these products are made in India and exported to around the world, India launch was delayed as the company is expanding dealerships across the country.
BMW Motorrad started its India operations last year with its high end CBU bikes. After the launch of G310R and G310 GS, these will be the most affordable bikes from the German manufacturer. They are also working on expanding service network as customer satisfaction is one of the most important priority of the German manufacturer.

The company is yet to officially announce the launch date but earlier rumours were also pointing to a June/July launch date. Both these bikes are powered by same 313 cc single cylinder engine producing 34 PS of power at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. This engine is mated to 6 speed gearbox and the top speed is expected to be around 143 kph.
Even though both these bikes share same engine, we can expect the tuning to be different as one bike is focused towards adventure and touring while the other is a naked street bike. The German manufacturer has already confirmed that they will position both these bikes at a premium even though it is manufactured in India.
