BMW has slashed the prices of both the 310 models, almost bringing them on a par with their respective competitors. The G 310 R is priced at Rs 2.45 lakh and the G 310 GS demands Rs 2.85 lakh,
After a long wait, BMW Motorrad India has finally introduced the BS6 iterations of its most affordable offerings – the G 310 R and the G 310 GS. The 2020 G 310 R now carries a sticker price of Rs 2.45 lakh, which is roughly Rs 54,000 cheaper than before. Similarly, the price of the 2020 G 310 GS has also gone down by a substantial Rs 64,000, and it is now priced at Rs 2.85 lakh. For better understanding, the KTM 390 Duke and the 390 Adventure, the immediate competitors of both these bikes, are priced at Rs 2.58 lakh and Rs 3.04 lakh, respectively (all prices are ex-showroom).
The G 310 GS gets quite a few noticeable changes to its design. Unlike the outgoing model, which was washed in white/silver, the base paint on the 2020 iteration is now black. The red-painted chassis adds a sense of contrast to the G 310 GS, enhancing its overall appeal. The baby-GS also gets new graphics and an additional Rallye sticker on the front beak. The headlamp is now blacked out in the 2020 iteration. Everything else about the bike, from the fuel tank and seat to the exhaust and alloy wheels, are all too familiar. The changes to the design are similar for the naked G 310 R as well. The headlights have now been reprofiled on both motorcycles, and just like the GS, the naked R gets a new paint scheme.
Powering both these bikes is a 313cc single-cylinder motor, which develops 34bhp and 28Nm and is paired to a 6-speed transmission. The features list includes LED headlamps and turn indicators, adjustable clutch and brake levers, slipper clutch, ride-by-wire, and more.
