At this price point, the G 310 R is around Rs 57,000 more expensive than its more-powerful rival, the KTM 390 Duke which carries a price tag of Rs 2.42 lakh.

BMW Motorrad India has finally launched the new BMW G 310 R and BMW G 310 GS in India at Rs. 2.99 lakh and Rs. 3.49 lakh (ex-showroom).

Note: All prices mentioned above are Ex-showroom, Delhi. Pre-bookings for the bikes have been under way for almost a month now, at an amount of Rs50,000.

While BMW started to officially accept bookings from June 8, deliveries have already begun on first come first serve basis. The engine was developed in collaboration with TVS and is identical to the one on the Apache RR 310.

The BMW G 310 R first debuted in India at the 2016 Auto Expo and more recently, at the 2018 Auto Expo alongside the BMW G 310 GS. Both bikes get the same cycle parts and also the engine but there are some key differences which set them apart. BMW Motorrad has engineered the bike in Germany while TVS Motor Company manufacturers the motorcycle at its factory in Hosur, Tamil Nadu.

BMW on Wednesday rolled out locally-made motorcycles in India - with an entry price of Rs 3 lakh - as the German brand looks to tap into the growing love of Indians for luxury and leisure biking.

Both bike are powered by a 313cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 34bhp and 27Nm. The kerb weights for the G 310 R and G 310 GS are 158.5kg and 169.5kg, respectively.

Both the G 310 R and the G 310 GS get 41mm inverted front forks and a rear monoshock. The R (being a sport naked) rides on 17-inch front and rear wheels, while the GS (being the adventure variant) gets a larger 19-inch front wheel and a standard-size 17-inch rear wheel.

The BMW G 310 R features a sculpted fuel tank, while a massive cowl surrounds the radiator.

On the other hand, BMW G 310 GS adventure tourer will face competition from Royal Enfield Himalayan and Kawasaki Versys-X 300.
