Discounts of up to Rs 50,000 offered on BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS
BMW Motorrad dealerships across the country have started offering year end discounts on its range starter motorcycles, the BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS. These discounts and benefits include reduction in rate of interest, cash discounts and also free insurance. While there are some dealerships who are offering all these benefits together, others have chosen to offer one of them. BMW Motorrad had launched the G 310 R at Rs 2.99 lakh and the G 310 GS at Rs 3.49 lakh, prices ex-Delhi. These prices were considered to be on the higher side especially when compared to the other 300cc offerings like the KTM Duke and the TVS Apache RR 310.
The G 310 R was the first offspring of the TVS-BMW project. It debuted the reversed configuration single cylinder engine that powers all the three derivatives (so far) from the platform. Both bikes are powered by the 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that develops 34PS at 9,500rpm and generates 28Nm at 7,500rpm. The motor is paired to a six-speed transmission. The GS obviously wears R 1200 GS inspired bodywork and it looks rather good too. Under the skin though, is a motorcycle that is surprisingly close to the 310 R spec. However, a taller ride height and a slightly more upright ergonomics package promise a convincing highway machine. At the European launch last year, journalists also reported reasonably good, mild off-road abilities though it's not a hardcore off-roader.
The two 310s come from the TVS-BMW tie-up that began in 2013. BMW Motorrad leads the development while TVS is responsible for manufacturing. BMW Motorrad controls quality and earlier, Karsten Konductorow of BMW Motorrad had confirmed to OVERDRIVE that the TVS-made bikes come in a single quality spec for the world as well as India. The only changes were those needed to meet local regulations - like saree guards and front number plates.
