KTM Duke 390 vs BMW G310R Price Comparison: BMW-Motorrad launched the much-awaited G310R in India last year for INR 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom). It has no direct rival for the given price point, leaving KTM 390 Duke as the only comparable rival with similar aesthetics. Have you ever wondered what kind of difference do KTM and BMW bikes have among themselves? Here we have a detailed view of pricing strategy that both brands follow for Indian as well as the US market.

KTM Duke 390 vs BMW G310R

KTM 390 Duke commands a price tag of INR 2.44 lakh (ex-showroom) in India, saving INR 55,000 for buyers who choose the Orange ride over the BMW G310R. On the other hand, the US market has a different trend with KTM 390 Duke placed at $5499 (INR 3.80 lakh approx) and BMW G310R carrying $4750 (INR 3.28 lakh approx) worth price tag. Both G310R and 390 Duke sold in the US are made in India.

The US market claims no import duty on bikes exported from India, leaving both manufacturers free to decide a price without considering segment competition. The G310R saves INR 52,000 of a buyer in the US while the same motorcycle is placed INR 55,000 higher in the Indian market. The trend shows how aggressively Bajaj has retailed KTM bikes in India whereas BMW plans to cash-in on the brand name.

KTM Duke 390 vs BMW G310R

Comparing the engine specifications on both bikes, KTM 390 Duke comes to be the ultimate street bike of all time. It uses a 373cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine, producing 43.5 HP of power and 37 Nm of torque. The motorcycle features a slipper clutch, and ride by wire technology for impressive results. The flagship street machine from KTM also offers Orange wheels and a LED headlight.

BMW G310R is powered by a 313cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine, producing 34 HP of maximum power and 28 Nm of torque. The values are not in direct comparison to KTM 390 Duke but, lighter body permits G310R to bring impressive performance stats in the real world. Still, the unjustified pricing for BMW G310R will force many riders to choose the Duke 390 for better overall results.

A majority of buyers are looking for value for money bikes in India and the 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 has eventually topped the list due to its class-leading features and mind-boggling price. BMW-Motorrad launched the G310R in India for INR 2.99 lakh, leaving many fans with emotional pain and hopes falling short of expectations. It may not sound like a straightforward comparison for hundreds of BMW fans but, the New Bajaj Dominar 400 needs some formal praise for being highly affordable and equally practical. Here are five reasons why considering 2019 Bajaj Dominar is a good option over the BMW G310R.

BMW G310R

5 Reasons Why 2019 Bajaj Dominar is a Better Buy than the BMW G310R

1) Value for Money

New Dominar 400 is expected to be priced around INR 1.80 lakh, and it is placed much lower in comparison to the BMW G310R at INR 2.99 lakh. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom. The price gap of around INR 1.20 lakh is unjustified in all terms, leaving buyers with an option of getting an additional Yamaha R15S with a Dominar 400. BMW seems to be using the name for extra cash-in as the fully-faired Apache RR 310 at INR 1.99 Lakh is priced INR 1 lakh lower in comparison to the G310R in Kerala. 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 offers excellent value for money in comparison to the G310R.

2) Performance Difference

BMW G310R uses a 313cc, single cylinder engine producing 34HP and 28Nm. When compared to Bajaj Dominar 400, the values feel dull and unexciting. The 373cc, single cylinder engine on the New Dominar 400 is sufficient for 40HP and 35Nm. The additional weight on the Dominar is managed by the extra torque, claiming much higher top speed (165 kph, approx.) than the BMW roadster (143 kmph, company claimed).

3) Spare Part Availability/Price

After spending a tremendous amount on G310R, buyers will get continuous shocks in the form of spare part availability and pricing. Being a BMW, G310R will bring greater bills for each service. Even the TVS Apache RR 310 has a higher cost for essential parts than other bikes around this segment. Dominar 400 is not just affordable but, also cares for your pocket at later stages of ownership.

4) Dealer Touch-points & Service Centres

BMW Motorrad has a limited number of dealer touch-points in India. Bajaj Auto, on the other hand, offers Dominar from its long list of dealerships. The difference is incomparable, leaving Dominar 400 as a more practical option. Servicing and other after-sales tasks are easily manageable when choosing Bajaj Dominar 400.

5) Equipment & Components

BMW G310R and the 2019 Bajaj Dominar, are powered by a single cylinder, fuel injected, and liquid cooled engine. Both the motorcycles also offer USD forks, 2-channel ABS, wide tires and digital instrument console as standard. Dominar comes with additional equipment like a slipper clutch and LED headlight. We can safely say the 2019 Bajaj Dominar is definitely a better buy than the BMW G310R.

BMW HP4 Race is now available in India with a price tag of INR 86.70 lakh. The German manufacturer is known for its reliable machines that perform extensively well in the toughest possible circumstances. If you are a fan of high-performance motorcycles with a unique approach, these five must know facts for BMW HP4 Race will blow away your mind.

5 Interesting Facts About BMW HP4 Race

1) Featherweight Frame & Body

HP4 Race measures 2070mm in length, 777mm in width and 1193mm in height. These dimensions match to almost entire SuperSport category racers available around the world. What’s astonishing here is that HP4 Race weighs just 146kg (dry) and adds 25.4kg to take on any challenge. This added weight includes 17.5-litres of fuel, tipping the scale at 171.4kg. For comparison, a motorcycle producing the same amount of power weighs around 200kg. You get KTM RC 390’s weight with a litre-class engine under the fairing.

2) Powerful Engine & Premium Components

BMW HP4 Race comes with a 999cc, inline-4 engine, producing 215HP at 13,900 rpm and 120Nm at 10,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed, anti-hopping clutch with straight cut gears. What makes HP Race even more special is the use of racing camshafts, four titanium valves, and Pankl connecting rod. The engine comes with electronic racing injection and full titanium WSBK racing exhaust.

3) Engine Life & Replacement Interval

If you feel that buying this INR 86.70 lakh motorcycle would be the only expense, this track bike has a different story. The engine requires rebuilding (not to be confused with servicing) after a 5000km interval. The cost of rebuilding is so high that BMW recommends buying a new engine for 15,000 euros (INR 12 lakh approx). The value seen here is without import tax. The high price makes every kilometre highly expensive to ride.

4) Most Expensive Motorcycle in India

At INR 86.70 lakh, BMW HP4 Race is the most expensive motorcycle in India that you can buy from a dealership. Earlier, this record was held by Kawasaki Ninja H2R at INR 72 lakh. As both these bikes are track legal only, no extra registration charge will be applicable to both of them. In fact, you will need a towing vehicle to carry the same around different tracks or hire a professional service occasionally.

5) Missing Parts

Those who are new to track bikes, you will be amazed to see no headlight, tail light, indicators, number plates or rear mudguard on the bike. All these are not available on track bikes to keep their overall weight lower. A rear seat cowl saves additional weight by replacing the pillion seat. Above all, the frame and wheels on BMW HP4 Race are made out of carbon fibre, giving them additional strength and agility, in comparison to other track spec bikes with road legal properties.

Kawasaki Ninja H2R vs BMW HP4 Race (Quick Comparison): The 2019 model of Ninja H2R rivals BMW HP4 Race in the Indian market. H2R is supercharged and proves its worth by pushing 326 PS of maximum power out of the 998cc engine. No other production motorcycle has ever reached this mark. All this comes with a wet weight of 216 kg, resulting in the most extreme output of 1.50 PS/kg. In comparison to the H2R, BMW H4 Race is more focused on weight reduction and claims an output of 1.25 PS/kg of body weight.

The regular litre-class motorcycles mostly achieve 1:1 ratio while these two have a 1.50:1 and 1.25:1 ratio. Both the motorcycles are track-specific examples of their respective road versions. Kawasaki and BMW are using the most expensive parts available for the top-spec products. However, the CBU route doubles the price tag by adding a 100% tax on the price of these two bikes. Kawasaki Ninja H2R costs INR 72 lakh while BMW HP4 Race costs INR 86.70 lakh in India.

Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor recently took delivery of his BMW G310R, sharing his first ride experience on his official Instagram page as agile through the Mumbai traffic. The actor claimed the ride to be fun-filled and perfect for traffic-filled areas. BMW G310R is powered by a 313cc, single cylinder engine, resulting in a lightweight overall built and impressive acceleration figures. The frame is shared among three motorcycles and G310R is the most handling-friendly option from them. It is the lightest and comes with a relaxed handlebar for easy city-specific manoeuvres.

BMW G310R offers 34 HP of maximum power and this amount of power is good for a sub-10-second sprint from 0-100 kph with a pillion. The motorcycle uses USD front forks and ABS-equipped front as well as rear disc brakes for maximum control. However, the biggest drawback experienced by most riders is the high service and spare cost, leaving many in the state of confusion as if they are getting a single cylinder lightweight or a twin cylinder middleweight product serviced.

But the scenario has now changed with the launch of G310R and G310GS. The German giant tied up with the Hosur-based TVS Motorcycles and started the production of the 300cc engines.

It was initially thought that the Germans would make naked bikes while TVS would handle the fully-faired ones. But with an increasing demand for the adventure touring bikes, BMW entered the market with bikes built on the same platform. BMW G310R and G310GS are available for INR 2.99 lakh and INR 3.49 lakh respectively. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom India.

Both the G310R and the G310GS sport the same 313cc four-valve single-cylinder air-cooled DOHC engine that produces maximum power of 34 horsepower and a peak torque of 28 Nm. Both the engines are leaned towards the rear of the motorcycles and the cylinder heads are turned 180 degrees. The inlet manifold is on the front side of the motorcycle while the exhaust manifold is on the rear side. The fuel efficiency on both the bikes is similar, with a combined mileage of 30 kmpl, as is the top speed, claimed by BMW at 143 kmph.

At first glance, you might mistake them for being the same. But on taking a closer look, you will start to notice the subtle differences between the bikes. The seat of the G310GS is bigger than the G310R, although the difference is marginal. The G310GS has a small quarter panel on the sides below the rear thugs while they are absent on the G310R. The fuel tank of the former is bulkier than the latter and it can help a person commute further on a single tank of fuel.

At the rear of the bikes, there are differences as well. The grab handle on the G310GS is equipped to carry a luggage box while on the G310R, the grab handle is meant for a grip for the pillion rider. G310GS comes with Metzeler Tourance tyres 150/70 17 rear and 110/80 R19 front, compared to the G310R, which has 150/60-R17 rear and 110/70-R17 front.

The front suspension on the G310GS has long travel set-up to help the bike manage better on rough terrains. The adventure tourer has an immovable speedometer and visor assembly given the fact that the mudguard is attached while the Street Naked bike gets a movable assembly. Both the bikes come with 2-channel BMW Motorrad ABS as standard but it is switchable on the adventure tourer while the street version has it non-switchable.

The GS is 11 kg heavier than its naked sibling, given the fact that there are many added components on the bike. The ride height on the G310R is fixed at 785mm, while the rider can switch it between 820mm and 850mm on the G310GS.  Here is a detailed specification comparison between both the motorcycles.

2019 BMW S1000RR has now been officially listed on the Indian website. BMW-Motorrad recently also posted a coming soon teaser photo on their official Facebook page. The 999cc, water-cooled engine with titanium valves and BMW ShiftCam technology is good for 207 hp of maximum power at 13,500 rpm and max torque of 113 Nm at 11,000 rpm. The thing that makes S1000RR even more interesting is the low 197 kg of road-ready weight, including all the fluids and full fuel tank for the Supersport machine. It has an impressive 16.5-litre fuel carrying capacity. The motorcycle is already on-sale in most markets and Indian launch will help the fans enjoy symmetrical design for the flagship racer from the German supersport brand.

The triple-tone shade comes with a perfect match of White and Blue, further adding Red for aggression and balanced feel. The exhaust seems compact, impressive for a motorcycle that craves performance every time the starter is pressed. BMW claims 299 kph of top speed for the 2019 S1000RR. The bike comes with BMW Motorrad ABS Pro, traction control, hill start control, LED lighting, TFT-console and shift assist pro. The seat height of 824mm makes S1000RR easily accessible by averagely built riders.

BMW has listed a number of optional accessories like bubble windshield, Carbon fiber footrests, M brake, and clutch levers, low/high seat kit, M Lap timer, M datalogger, tank bag and rear bag for the motorcycle. The brand has revised the side profile, offering a glimpse of the sub-frame and using forward biased fairing design.

The headlight is now symmetrical, more inspired by the direct rival, Ducati Panigale. The perfect use of black on various parts further add a fourth dimension to the already impressive triple-tone theme on the superbike. The official rival list for BMW S1000RR in India includes Yamaha YZF-R1, Ducati Panigale V4, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR, Honda CBR1000RR SP, and the Suzuki GSX-R1000R. The 2019 model of BMW S1000RR is expected to be priced around INR 19-20 lakh (ex-showroom).

Sourav Ganguly, the former Indian skipper has recently bought himself a BMW G310GS in India. The motorcycle is finished in Pearl White Metallic shade and seems to be without any additional accessory at the moment. The brand offers two more shades namely Cosmic Black and Racing Red for the lightweight adventure motorcycle. The overall weight may not be as light as mentioned, but in comparison to regular adventure machines, the architecture favours the rider. Sourav Ganguly was seen unwrapping the motorcycle cover, also giving a shot by sitting on his new possession.

BMW G310GS is based on the same platform as G310R, using a different set of suspension and tire combination to improve the overall seating. The high seat not just facilitates better rough road riding, but also brings a commanding view of the road ahead. The front comes with 41mm USD forks with 180mm of travel while rear comes with a preload adjustable monoshock with 180mm of travel. The 169.5 kg of wet weight is great for new riders as balancing an adventure motorcycle with high seat height and heavyweight can be truly difficult.

The 313cc, single cylinder engine on the BMW G310GS is good for 34 HP at 9500 rpm and 28 Nm at 7500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The claimed top speed of 143 kph makes G310GS a great option for all-day long riding. Buyers can get their hands on any one of the three shades for INR 3.49 lakh (ex-showroom). However, the service cost for BMW bikes is quite high in comparison to other regular brands with similar engine capacity.
