We have already ridden the other small capacity BMW. Called the G 310 R, it's a well thought out street motorcycle, even though we can't say the same about its pricing.
This, the G 310 GS is even more expensive. It costs Rs 4.3 lakhs on the road in Mumbai.
But, unlike the R which has the KTM 390 Duke to make it look ordinary and pricey, there's nothing like the GS on the market. Yes, there's the Kawasaki Versys X-300 but it costs a ridiculous Rs 5.5 lakh on the road rendering it pointless in this context. And let's not bring up the Royal Enfield Himalayan here, because, well, it's a completely different proposition. And from the looks of it, it's still trying to dig itself out of the hole created by the first batch of Himalayans.
