The motorcycle will initially focus on European markets.

The BMW G 310 R’s launch in India is confirmed to take place by early 2017. The same was confirmed by BMW Motorrad official twitter handle when the question was asked by Rushlane reader Mr Anand.

To elaborate, BMW Motorrad stated that the launch of naked G 310 R will take place in India by Spring 2017 (which is March / April 2017) and that of the adventure variant, G 310 GS will take place by end 2017.

The most affordable Bimmer has entered production at a new assembly line within TVS Motor Co’s Hosur premises. Initially, it will be exported to markets in Europe. The company is looking to have adequate inventory before opening bookings in the local market.

The street fighter is expected to receive huge orders in the domestic market and the German giant apparently prefers to delay the launch until it is able to commence deliveries seamlessly rather than opening the order books earlier and let the waiting period escalate to several months. Deliveries in Europe are expected to commence any time now.

The G 310 R is powered by a 313 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor that puts out 34 PS.

The BMW G 310 R is priced lower than the made-in-India KTM Duke 390 in Europe. If the brand could manage a similar positioning in India, it would garner immense response from the market. The motorcycle targets brand-conscious urban motorcycle enthusiasts.

As per the cooperation agreement with TVS, the platform will also spawn a TVS derivative which was previewed by the Akula 310 concept at the Auto Expo.
