In fact, BMW has already started manufacturing this motorcycle at the TVS Hosur based plant in Chennai.
The company is also exporting this naked streetfighter to select international markets from India. Before launching its affordable entry-level bikes, BMW aims to expand its dealership network in the country. In India, the the BMW G310 R will face a tough challenge from the KTM Duke 390.

The naked streetfighter is already on sale in UK market at £4,450 (around Rs 4.14 lakh), which gives an inkling of its India pricing. However, the India-spec model will be little more affordable than the UK-spec model. Designed and developed jointly by BMW Motorrad and TVS Motor Company, the highly-anticipated BMW G 310 R is being manufactured at TVS’s Hosur plant in Bengaluru. This will save it from the hefty excise duty. With a high level of localisation, the company aims to achieve a lucrative pricing for the entry-level streetfighter. We expect the BMW G310R price in India will fall in the range of Rs 2.0 lakh to Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom). If launched at this price point, it will become the most affordable offering from BMW Motorrad in the country. Read About: TVS Apache RTR 300
