BMW Motorrad has launched the BS6-compliant versions of its entry-level offerings, the G 310 R and G 310 GS motorcycles in the Indian market.
The new BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS BS6 motorcycles are priced at Rs 2.45 lakh and Rs 2.85 lakh, respectively. Both prices are ex-showroom (India). Bookings for both the BS6-compliant motorcycles have begun across the country, with deliveries said to begin soon.
The new BMW G 310 R & G 310 GS BS6 models come with a number of cosmetic updates, along with a few added features as well, which combined with the slightly lower price tag (compared to its older BS4 versions), definitely makes it a more attractive offering in the segment.
Some of the added features on the BS6 iterations include new LED headlamp units, LED turn signals and LED taillights. Both motorcycles also come with new body graphics and slightly revised body panels as well. The motorcycles also come with a new set of paint schemes as well, making the motorcycles more attractive than before.
The BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS now come powered by a BS6-compliant version of the same 312cc single-cylinder water-cooled engine. It produces 34bhp at 9500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7500rpm and is paired with a six-speed gearbox.
The brand claims that the motorcycles are capable of accelerating from 0 – 50km/hr in just 2.5 seconds while reaching a top speed of 143km/hr. BMW Motorrad has also offered both the G 310 R and G 310 GS with ride-by-wire technology, along with other features such as slipper-clutch and dual-channel ABS.
Both motorcycles also use golden USD forks at the front and an aluminium swingarm suspension setup at the rear. Braking is handled by discs at both ends.
The BMW G 310 R rivals the likes of the KTM Duke 390, Bajaj Dominar 400 and the TVS Apache RR310, while the G 310 GS takes on the KTM 390 Adventure and the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
