At the launch of the 2017 BMW 3 Series GT, company officials made it very clear that BMW India will soon set up up showrooms and bring their products to India in early 2017. First of these products will be the G310R. The G310R has been spied in India on numerous occasions. Hence, it’s likely that the company is done with tuning the bike for our road conditions. Recently, the adventure variant was spied on foreign soil without any camouflage. All this means that the TVS-BMW alliance will spawn at least three models- BMW G 310R, G 310GS and TVS Akula 300.

Price in India Rs. 2.8 Lakhs

It is expected that the G310GS will be priced close to Rs. 3 lakhs. Nothing’s official as of now but heavy localization levels should lead to competitive pricing. We believe that the GS310GS adventure bike will cost around Rs. 2.8 Lakhs in India. This means that the upcoming bike will be slightly pricier than the G310R. Even in Germany and United Kingdom, the G310GS will command a premium over the G310R.
