Both bikes come in at competitive price tags which put them squarely against the KTM 390 twins

 

The BS6-compliant BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS are finally here, and boy do they have a lot going for them. Changes include cosmetic and feature updates along with additional goodies that should improve their overall rideability. Here’s a closer look at the duo via detailed images.

For starters, the BS6 G 310 R gets minor design tweaks to its tank and tank extensions which look more muscular and coherent than the three-piece split layout on its predecessor.

Then there’s the introduction of new LED headlights running sleek LED DRLs which replaces the conventional halogen headlight from the BS4 model.

The engine housing covers for the alternator, clutch and water pump are now finished in new Titanium Grey metallic colour for both bikes.

The LED treatment has been carried over to the winners as well.

Have small hands? That’s no bother anymore as both the bikes feature 4-stage adjustable brake and clutch levers.

There’s no change in the switchgear design. Thankfully, from the looks of it, the quality remains intact.

Same goes for the digital instrument console. Having said that, we would have loved to see BMW follow TVS’ footsteps by equipping the G 310 twins with a full-colour TFT console with a ton of features and possibly variable rider modes.

The 313cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor has been tweaked to comply with BS6 emission norms. Thankfully, the strict regulations haven't taken a toll on the engine performance. The powertrain still puts out 34PS at 9,500rpm and 28Nm at 7,500rpm, same as before.

For 2020, the engine gets a slip-and-assist clutch which should result in lighter clutch action, with ride-by-wire offering precise fuelling, resulting in a crisper throttle input.

There’s no change in terms of hardware. Both bikes use the exact same suspension setup as before: a USD fork up front and a preload-adjustable monoshock. The GS, of course, gets longer travel for off-road.

Braking is handled by a 300mm front and a 240mm rear disc brake which help put the anchor down with the assistance of dual-channel ABS.

Another area where the G 310 GS differs from the G 310 R is tyres. The former runs dual-purpose tyres while the latter sticks to its road-biased Michelin Pilot Street radials. We would have loved to see BMW slap some grippy Michelin Road 5 rubber on the G 310 R, just like TVS did for the BS6 Apache RR 310.

In terms of colour options, the BS6 G 310 has three to choose from: Cosmic Black, Polar White and ‘Style Sport’ in Limestone Metallic. The latter two will cost you an additional Rs 10,000 over an above the ex-showroom price of the bike.

Same goes for the BS6 G 310 GS. You can choose between three liveries: Polar White, the ‘40 years of GS’ Edition in Cosmic Black and ‘Style Rallye’ in Kyanite Blue Metallic.  The special edition and Rallye colours will set you back by an additional Rs 6,000.

Added benefits include a 3-year extended warranty with Road Side Assistance (RSA). You could opt for a fourth and fifth year for an additional cost of Rs 16,250. But if you're within the first 500 customers, BMW will offer this to you for just Rs 5,499.

BMW knocked it out of the park with its new pricing strategy. The BS6 G 310 R comes in at Rs 2.45 lakh while the G 310 GS costs Rs 2.85 lakh -- Rs 54,000 and Rs 64,000 cheaper than before! This also makes the Beemers more affordable than the KTM 390 Duke and the 390 Adventure.
