- BMW G 310 R, G 310 GS BS6 spotted in India
- Both bikes feature full-LED headlamp and turn indicators
- G 310 R gets subtle styling changes
BMW Motorrad is likely to launch the updated versions of the G 310 R and G 310 GS in India soon as both the bikes were spied testing in the country. A video has surfaced online showing the test mules plying on the Indian roads which clearly reveal that they will be sporting styling and feature upgrades.
While both the bikes sport a full-LED headlamp, as opposed to the conventional bulbs of the existing models, the design of the headlamp cluster is also larger and more angular. Moreover, the turn indicators are also LED now. As for the styling, although the GS model retains the same design, the naked R model can be seen sporting sharper and more muscular fuel tank and extensions. What’s more, the aluminum-finished crankcase has been replaced by blacked-out components. Notably, both the updated models were spied undergoing tests abroad in April this year.
Another obvious change will be in the engine of the bikes which will be a revised, BS6-compliant unit. The existing BS4 models are powered by a 313cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled mill which churns out 33bhp and 28Nm. Considering the fact that the BS6-bound changes didn’t alter the power figures of the TVS Apache RR 310, same will be the case with the BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS as they share identical powerplants. Rest of the hardware appears to have remained unchanged.
Coming to the prices, the BS4 models of the BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS are pegged at Rs 2.99 lakh and Rs 3.49 lakh, respectively. Although the aforementioned tweaks are supposed to hike the prices, BMW might keep the prices unchanged considering they are already substantially expensive than the competition.
