BMW Motorrad’s Mumbai outlet has announced special festive season offers and discounts for the G 310 R and the G 310 GS models.
BMW Motorrad Mumbai is offering one-year insurance and registration at the ex-showroom cost of both models. Thus, under the limited period offer, the G 310 R will cost INR 2.99 lakh while the G 310 GS will be available for INR 3.49 lakh – both on-road Mumbai prices. The dealership-level festive season offer is valid for September. The motorcycles come with a three-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty and a service interval of 10,000 km/one-year.
The special discount can also be cited as the reason to boost the sales during the high-demand festive season and to clear the stock of the BS-IV compliant models before the BS-VI variants start to roll into the dealership. In July this year, the Mumbai dealership had announced a heavy discount on the demo bikes. Under the offer from earlier this year, the 2017 S 1000 RR demo bike was available at a discount of INR 5,63,000.
The BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS were among the German brand’s top five selling models in 2018. BMW Motorrad had announced that 24,363 units of the G 310 twins were delivered to customers by the end of 2018. Both, the G 310 R and the G 310 GS share the same underpinnings and engine. The 313.2 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, reverse-inclined motor pumps out 34 hp of max power and 28 Nm of peak torque on both models. The engine is linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
Hardware specifications include a trellis frame, adjustable rear monoshock, upside-down front forks, disc brakes on both ends and the safety-net of dual-channel ABS as standard. The G 310 GS comes with a 19-inch front wheel, while the road-biased G 310 R features 17-inch wheels on both ends.
The entry-level models from BMW Motorrad’s portfolio rival the likes of KTM 390 Duke, Bajaj Dominar 400, CF Moto 300NK and the Royal Enfield Himalayan. The competition will get stiffer with the arrival of the KTM 390 Adventure that is likely to debut at the 2019 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy before arriving in India in 2020.
