BMW G 310 GS adventure bike gets a price hike

Written by Nayak

BMW India has announced a price hike for its G310 GS. With this in effect, the motorcycle now costs INR 3.05 lakh ex-showroom, up from INR 3 lakh ex-showroom, previously. There are no mechanical or aesthetic changes to justify the price hike. We understand the price hike will offset the increase in the cost of input materials. Just like BMW, we have seen other automotive makers make a similar price hike announcement in the recent few days.

What Is The BMW Motorrad G 310 GS?

This motorcycle from BMW is an entry-level adventure tourer for the Indian market. Powering the machine is a BS6-compliant, 313cc, single-cylinder engine matched to a six-speed gearbox. The performance figure of the unit reads as 33.5 Bhp of power and 28 Nm of peak torque. In terms of features, G 310 GS gets a long list. The key highlights are full-LED lighting, a fully-digital instrument cluster, dual-channel ABS and more.

The suspension setup consists of upside-down front forks, a rear mono-shock. BMW is using a 19-inch front wheel and a 17-inch rear wheel. Braking power comes from a disc setup both at the front and rear with dual-channel ABS as standard. Interestingly the only competitor in this price bracket is the KTM 390 Adventure, which gets an even heftier price tag.

Demand For Adventure Motorcycles On The Rise

In the recent few years, we have noticed the increasing demand for adventurer tourer motorcycles in the country. The reasons are many, but we understand given the ample number of options in the market, customers are now trying out different segments. The Indian two-wheeler industry is the largest in the world and did not see any major shifts in past history.

But now, with the launch of different motorcycle types, the options are getting more diverse. BMW being a luxury brand name, has its own charm and character. To date, the BMW Motorrad has continued to enjoy great success in the Indian market. And with more launches planned for the future, we hope to see the brand stay in India for a long period.
