TVS Motors builds the BMW Motorrad motorcycles, the G 310 R & G 310 GS. We all know that. However, this alliance has reached a milestone number. TVS Motors has rolled out the 50,000th BMW 310cc motorcycle from their plant in Hosur, India. This particular unit was a red coloured BMW G 310 R.
TVS Motors and BMW Motorrad signed a contract for this partnership in April 2013. Based on this 310cc motor, TVS Motors and BMW Motorrad have introduced 3 motorcycles in the Indian market which includes the BMW Motorrad G 310 R, BMW Motorrad G 310 GS & the TVS Apache RR 310. The BMW motorcycles are also exported globally from India.
More such models are in the pipeline, and the world is expecting a sharp looking sibling to the BMW S1000RR based on this 310cc series models.
Production of the BMW G 310 R & G 310 GS commenced in December 2016 and the bikes were launched here in India only a few months back, in 2018. While the bikes are priced significantly higher than core competitors, it still gives potential customers a chance to bring a BMW to their garage at a price which they never imagined.
