BMW Motorrad will be the next in line to upgrade their existing range of products to the BS-VI emission norms. The company will be launching the upgraded versions of its two flagship products, namely the G310 R and the G310 GS. Both of them are scheduled to launch here on October 8, which is just a couple of days from now.
The BS-VI compliant version of the BMW G310 GS was recently clicked in production form. BMW Motorrad had shared an image of it on their official India website. Thus, the BS-VI iterations of both the G310R and the G310 GS have begun production, with deliveries set to be commencing soon.
Both are being produced from TVS facility, which is located in Hosur, Tamil Nadu. The BMW G310 GS, in its latest update will carry a few cosmetic changes as well as the addition of a few features. These include a new blacked out headlamp cluster featuring LED DRL’s and a revised panel on the sides.
It will also be sporting newer graphics and will likely be coming with some more colour options. These could be confirmed by BMW Motorrad themselves at the time of their official release here. Bookings have already opened and it will be only a matter of time when we get to see deliveries coming out.
Engine-wise, the G310R and the G310 GS come powered by a 312.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor. This manages to make 34 BHP of power along with 27 Nm of torque. It will be coming mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch being offered as a standard equipment.
The BS-IV version of the BMW G310 GS was priced from Rs. 3.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). But the given upgrade could command a slight premium over it in comparison, which may be priced at around Rs. 3.60 lakh. It remains to be seen whether the G310R and the G310 GS could continue its fairly decent run in India up until now, even with its BS-VI avatar.
