There seems to be a bit of confusion recently when it comes to the BMW G310GS’ India launch and we’re here to dispel these rumors.
Originally, BMW Motorrad did confirm the G310GS launch date on twitter last year, with initial release expected to take place late 2017. But when RushLane reader Sahil Husain got in touch with BMW Motorrad India for a second confirmation, he was told that BMW had no plans to launch the G310R’s adventure sibling in India. An odd reply seeing as the G310GS will be produced at TVS’ Hosur plant alongside the G310R. A first for BMW thanks to a technology co-operation agreement the German company made with TVS.
Not one to simply take media speculations as fact, India.com contacted BMW Motorrad India regarding this matter and was told both the G310R and G310GS will be launched in India. Currently, BMW’s India branch is setting up dealerships and service centers across India to increase brand accessibility.
“We are presently in the process of setting up the business operations in India and finalising the launch dates for the BMW G310R and G310GS”, said BMW Motorrad.
This statement is also supported by the president of BMW India, Vikram Pawah, who suggested that the G310R’s India launch has been delayed until next year. So those of you in India will still have a chance to get your hands on either one of BMW’s 313 cc single-cylinder powered bikes. It’s just a matter of time now.
