BMW Motorrad unveiled the G310R at EICMA 2015. The manufacturer will commence its Indian operations by launching this streetnaked later this year. Production of the G310R will take place at the Hosur-based TVS plant. Local manufacturing should enable BMW to price the bike really competitively. BMW Motorrad will also come up with a new dual-purpose adventure model on the G310R’s platform. It was seen testing abroad without camouflage recently confirming its development. The upcoming bike is likely to be called the BMW GS310GS. It is likely to have a sticker price of less than Rs. 3 lakhs.

The G310R is already being manufactured at the TVS’ production facility. The G310GS too will be manufactured by TVS locally. The production of the upcoming G310R-based adventure bike will have high localization levels. This should lead to a competitive price.
BMW G310GS India Launch Date
|Launch Date in India||June-July 2017|
BMW Motorrad will launch the GS310R around the end of 2016. This means that the Adventure model on the G310R’s platform won’t be here before 2017. It is speculated that the BMW G310GS India launch date will fall in mid-2017. We were the first to find our the BMW G310R India launch date thru our sources. Hence, you can safely expect us to update you on the G310GS launch date as soon as we dig out more details.
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. The bike, it seems, is almost ready and should make its first public appearance in October 2016.

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.
