The highly awaited BMW G 310 R has finally been launched in India. This marks the launch of the most affordable BMW bike that one can buy. The G 310 R is priced in the country at Rs. 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Bookings for the BMW G 310 R in India are already underway, and deleveries will commence from immediate effect.
The G 310 R is a result of a partnership between BMW Motorrad and TVS Motors. Under this partnership, the two companies have jointly developed a middleweight platform and engine that will be used by both manufacturers in their respective products. BMW has worked on this platform to develop a naked streetfighter called the G 310 R, while TVS has taken the sports bike route with the Apache RR 310

Additionally, the aforementioned partnership also means that the BMW G310R is produced locally in India at the TVS manufacturing factory in Hosur, near Chennai. Local production helps in ensuring that the G 310 R is pegged at a fairly competitive price tag, thus making it the most affordable bike from the German automaker.
