BMW G310GS India Launch Set For July-August 2018. Will compete with the Royal Enfield Himalayan
The BMW G 310R and the G 310 GS is one of the most awaited bikes to be launched in the Indian market. The bikes are on sale in many other countries and are being manufactured in India, while we still have no news about the launch here. Motorcycle enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for the launch and also to get their hands over it. Although, BMW has showcased the G310R and the G310 GS in the past two Auto Expos in India, the launch of it has been delayed.
Well, this time we have something interesting to share with our readers. A bunch of BMW G 310 GS’s, which is the adventure tourer version has been spotted somewhere near Bengaluru. This might indicate that there is some groundwork that is being taken place before its launch.
With the partnership between TVS and BMW-Motorrad, the 310 series has been developed. While the booking of the G 310R and the G 310GS has already commenced, but as of now, it has only been limited only to the customers who already own a BMW motorcycle or used to own one.
As of now, there isn’t any clarity as to when will these bikes launch in the Indian market. Just like you, we are also eager to get our hands on them. Till then look at the details below.
BMW G310GS Design and colors
The highlight which has made our jaws drop is that the traditional GS styling can be seen here. Same color schemes pattern. Tank shrouds, a protruding beak and a large luggage carrier at the back to carry everything you ever need to stay on the road forever (if you wish to)
2016 BMW G310GS Chassis, suspension and brakes
Similar chassis is visible. What we can see is raised USD front fork, 17-inch front and rear wheels with dual sport tyres. Similar brakes with ABS is most likely to come. Monoshock at the rear is similar but like the front, the rear will be most likely be raised.
BMW G310GS India Price and Launch Date
Priced will start from 2.5 -3.0 lakhs ex-showroom prices nationwide which should make it good value for money. All set for EICMA launch this year. The motorcycle should come to India exactly next year or may be slightly earlier.
2016 BMW G310GS India Engine and Mileage
The engine is set to be the same. The engine will be tuned for mid and low range torque and will compromise slightly on the top-end power most likely. The gearing will be tweaked and so will be the timings of ever single aspect in the engine. Including camshafts, valve trains and much more nerdy stuff that you don’t need to know right now.
