BMW Motorrad has brought the 2022 G310 GS to India just a couple of weeks after it was unveiled for global markets. The price tag has seen a slight increase, and the motorcycle retails at INR 3.10 lakh (ex-showroom), which is a good INR 5,000 more. The 2023 model is pretty much the same as the outgoing model, both aesthetically and mechanically. It is just that customers now will have new colour options to choose from. This includes Cosmic Black 3, Style Rallye Kalamata Metallic Matt and Racing Blue Metallic. Hence, the older colour options are no longer available with the updated 2022 model.
BMW G310 GS – All Details
The motorcycle continues to get the 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder mill that makes 33.5bhp and 28Nm. This is the same engine that does duty in the G310 R and G310 RR. Key highlights of the motorcycle include an LCD dash, an assist and slipper clutch, full-LED lighting, adjustable levers, and dual-channel ABS. The motorcycle rides on 19-17-inch alloy wheels that get the support of USD forks and a mono-shock. Braking power comes from a single-disc set-up both for the front as well as the rear. Once launched, the motorcycle will go head to head against a host of other options in this segment. This includes the KTM 250 Adventure, KTM 390 Adventure, Suzuki V-Strom SX and the Royal Enfield Himalayan, among others.
BMW has finally taken off the wrap from the G 310 RR, which is essentially a rebadged version of the TVS Apache RR310. But, there are some subtle differences to talk about. One big difference from the TVS’s representation is the use of different paint and colour options. The equipped TFT display, too, gets some minor BMW touches. Another key difference is the use of Michelin Pilot Street tyres for the BMW, as against Michelin Road 5 rubber offered on the Apache RR310. BMW G 310 RR uses conventional brake rotors in contrast to the petal-type discs on the TVS. BMW has put on a sticker price of INR 2.85 lakh (ex-showroom) for the motorcycle.
