BMW G310R India

The TVS BMW G310R is the first sub-500cc motorcycle developed jointly by BMW Motorrad and TVS Motor Company.

BMW G310R is, undoubtedly, one of the most-awaited upcoming new bikes among the enthusiasts of the country. Ever since its unveiling in 2015, the naked streetfighter has created buzz with contemporary and muscular styling. Additionally, the BMW G 310 R is the first BMW bike developed under the BMW Motorrad and TVS Motor Company’s joint venture. It was speculated that the motorcycle will be launched in the country in early 2018; however, the bike won’t be launched in the first H2 of 2018. The wait for the Indian motorcycling enthusiasts will be a little long as the company has again pushed back its launch to second half of 2018.

Interestingly, BMW will also launch the G 310 GS adventure tourer in the Indian market in the second half of 2018. Additionally, BMW is also aiming to increase its dealership network before launching its affordable bikes. Currently, BMW Motorrad has four dealerships in the country – Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad and Bengaluru – and that too for the high-end motorcycles. With an aim to cater to a wider set of buyers, the company will first focus on expanding its dealership network.

The BMW G310R styling seems heavily inspired from the S1000RR and the R1200R. Powering the naked streetfighter is a 313cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that will also power the TVS Apache RR 310S. This engine is good for 34bhp and 28Nm of torque. This motorcycle is claimed to have a top speed of 145kmph and fuel efficiency of 36.05kmpl. For suspension duties, the bike has 41mm upside-down fork and monoshock with adjustable preload at the front and rear, respectively. The bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels shod with 110/70 R17 tyre at the front and 150/60 R17 at the rear.

Production of the BMW G 310 R is already underway at TVS’s Hosur plant in Bengaluru. In fact, the company has been shipping the motorbike to the European and US markets. With a high level of localisation, the company aims to achieve a lucrative pricing for the entry-level streetfighter. First previewed at the 2015 EICMA in Milan, the sub-500 sports bike was also displayed at India’s largest auto event, Auto Expo in 2016. With the G 310 R, BMW will foray into the small capacity bike segment and is likely to carry a competitive pricing of Rs 2 lakh. Read – BMW G310 GS Adventure – All You Need To Know

BMW G310R India Launch Date

It was speculated that BMW will launch this naked streetfighter in the Indian market this festive season; that didn’t happen. The company has already confirmed that the India launch of the all-new G 310R bike will take place in the second half of 2018. Though, the company hasn’t yet revealed the exact launch date or details of the motorcycle. We will update you as soon as BMW reveals anything on the same.

BMW G310R Price in India

Variant Expected Price
Non-ABSRs 2 lakh – 2.20 lakh
ABSRs 2.50 lakh – 2.75 lakh

The streetfighter is already on sale in UK market at a starting price of Rs 3.38 lakh (approx.), which gives an inkling of its India pricing, likely to be lower than the UK market. Designed and developed jointly by BMW Motorrad and TVS Motor Company , the highly-anticipated BMW G 310 R is being manufactured at TVS’s Bengaluru based unit. This will save it from the hefty excise duty. Considering the copious localisation, we expect the bike to be priced between Rs 2.0 lakh to Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom). You May Also Like: TVS Apache RTR 200 | TVS Apache RTR 300New TVS Victor

Combining looks of a stunt bike and performance of a bike, the entry-level performance bike from BMW will get elements like lockable throttle grip, brake lever on left-side of handlebar, oversized rear wheel brake, axle pegs on front axle and stunt tail.

While the bike will also borrow some inputs from BMW Concept Stunt G310R, revealed at the 2015 Salao Duas Rodas show in Brazil. The concept was built with help from Chris Pfeiffer, who has won the 4X World and European stunt riding champion.

  20. Saurabh
    March 17, 2016

    If it is hoping to compete with KTM Duke 390, it should be priced at least equivalent to D390 or otherwise the price-value sensitive Indian customers might prefer 390 more than G310 R.

    Really hoping it would be priced right, which ideally should be the case since it is being manufactured in India itself, unless BMW tries to act all pricey and premium which would be quite unfortunate.

  21. Tejas

    Otherwise my option is benelli TNT 300

  22. jany joe
    March 26, 2016

    I expect premium pricing from BMW as they are a much stronger brand than any of the competition. For the logo alone, people will be willing to pay more. BMW like always will position themselves as an aspirational brand, they don’t want every one to be buying one, thus diluting their value. It is all marketing in the end. The TVS-BMW story will be an interesting one, the one business schools will surely write case studies on.

    Bmw Would Have Made this alone, why would they Need to join hands with TVS, BMW losses its Brand.
    It would be Great that if Only the BMW had Manufactured it..The CEO of BMW MOTORS Mr.Harald Kruger is not Capable to run the Company…………
    This shows that BMW is Losing its Brand, Identity, Values, Pride of BMW & Prestige that had from the past, and i think that BMW is not capable of making Own Motorcycles…….
    I LOVE BMW Cars as well the Bikes…
    But now a slight Changes has happened , all the BMW lovers would feel the same……
    I think that i have brought the Right Point to your notice….
    I Hope that, In Future this might Change that not to make partnerships with other Companies,
    What i feel is that BMW Should Have Its Own Pride, not To Share with Others….
