BMW Motorrad will be entering the Indian market in 2016. The German bikemaker will be among the last European manufacturers to reach our shores as most of its rivals have already established themselves. But BMW thinks that it has the correct product in the form of the BMW G310R to take on its competitors which will be unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo. The new BMW G310R has been designed and engineered in Germany but will be manufactured in India by TVS Motors and exported to other markets across the world from our country. The local manufacturing means that BMW Motorrad will be able to price the bike competitively. 

 

In terms of looks, the G310R is exactly what you would expect a BMW designed bike to look like which is understated and elegant. BMW says that the bike follows the same design language that we have already seen on the new S1000R. The v-shaped headlight with the golden finished upside down forks gives the front an aggressive stance. Under the skin the BMW G310R sports a 313cc single-cylinder liquid cooled unit that produces 34 horses and close to 28Nm. The G310R tips the scale at 158.5kg.

For those who worry about quality and service, BMW has spent a lot of time setting up shop as per their standards at the TVS facility. All the machines required to manufacture this machine have been built in Germany and shipped to India to maintain quality standards. The BMW G310R is expected to go on sale sometime next year. Details regarding the launch of the BMW G310R in India are still uncertain, but one thing’s certain, just like the Bajaj-KTM partnership, the BMW-TVS joint venture will bring some happy days for the enthusiast junta. We expect the bike to be priced around Rs 2.5 lakh and a possible launch by late 2016 in India.
