BMW Motorrad India has announced that the brand has started accepting bookings on the updated 2020 BS6 compliant BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS in India. Customers interested in buying the BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS can now register interest online and make bookings for both the naked roadster and the adventure tourer in the Indian market. India will also be the first market to get the updated G 310 R and the G 310 GS and the motorcycles will be delivered on a first-come-first-served basis.
In terms of the updates, both the BMW G 310 R roadster and the BMW G 310 GS Adventure Tourer come with minor cosmetic upgrades as well as a new BS6 emission-compliant powertrain. According to the official teaser, the powertrain is also “Refined” than before. BMW is likely to have upgraded the closed-loop 3-way catalytic converter system to achieve BS6/Euro5 conformity.
Both the G 310 R and the G 310 GS are expected to come with new LED headlamps, and earlier spy pictures of the motorcycle have revealed that BMW might have made a few updates to the headlamp housing and a slightly updated the bodywork. Apart from this, both motorcycles are expected to retain the mechanical parts. Speculations are that the updated motorcycles also come with a new instrument cluster and ride by wire throttle, based on the TVS Apache RR310, but it is difficult to hypothesize anything further on this unless more details revealed closer to the launch.
In the engine department, both the G 310 R and the G 310 GS are powered by a 313cc, single-cylinder, reverse-inclined, liquid-cooled, four valves, fuel-injected DOHC powertrain that produces 34 HP of power and 28 Nm of torque on the outgoing BS4 model matched to a 6-speed gearbox with a mechanically operated wet clutch. For 2020 the motorcycles are also expected to be upgraded with a slipper assist clutch.
