The dealership is offering the registration and insurance within the ex-showroom price tags of the motorcycles. Thus, the customers can now avail the BMW G310R at an on-road price tag of INR 2.99 lakh while the on-road price of the G310GS now stands at INR 3.49 lakh, for a limited period. The motorcycles are further being offered with a three-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty in addition to a dedicated service interval of one year or 10,000 km, whichever is completed first.

A recent report about the German luxury motorcycle maker, BMW-Motorrad, notify that the company has recalled the G310R and the G310GS in a number of international markets due to numerous complaints received from the customers regarding the brake callipers.

On enquiring from the brand, they notified that the brake callipers are prone to corrosion. This issue can further become a reason for causing friction inside the bore. Issues regarding corrosion in the braking system can severely affect the stopping power of the motorcycles. The brake callipers of the G310 series are manufactured by ByBre, which is an Indian subsidiary of Brembo.

The current update suggests that the models have been recalled only in the international markets although it is yet to be confirmed if a similar step for the repair would be taken by BMW-Motorrad India regarding the G310 twins. In case the company plans on recall in the country then the customers will be contacted by the dealership or the customers may also receive an email from BMW-Motorrad to notify them.

BMW G310R and G310GS Get New Colour Options: The popular German brand BMW-Motorrad recently launched the next-gen S1000RR in India and it marked quite a successful launch in the luxury sportbike segment.

BMW’s entry-level models, the G310R and the G310GS, are the best-selling bikes of the brand in the Indian market. To attract more customers and boost sales figures, BMW has stepped up and has introduced new stylish and sporty paint schemes for the two bikes. By replacing its old black colour the G310R streetfighter is now available in an updated Cosmic Black colour whereas the G310GS adventure tourer has received a new Strato Blue metallic paint scheme replacing the Racing Red colour.

The new Cosmic Black colour on G310R covers the entire bike along with a set of new decals on the front fender, radiator cover, and rear fairing to give the motorcycle a renewed sporty look. Unlike the existing GS range, the ‘GS’ logo on the fuel tank of G310GS now also gets a neon yellow shade. The blue paint on the G310GS is only visible on the front beak and on the top of the fuel tank. The new colours are expected to launch in India in the coming weeks.

Apache RR 310 vs BMW G310R (Detailed Comparison): BMW-Motorrad launched the much-awaited G310R in India last year for INR 2.99 lakh. The motorcycle is powered by a 313cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine, producing 34 HP and 28 Nm of torque. On the other hand, Apache RR 310 produces the same horsepower but, gets a reduction in torque by 0.7 Nm.

The full faired Apache is heavier by 11kg, all thanks to added equipment and fairing on the motorcycle. BMW G310R comes with a different instrument console and also brings standard handlebar and seating into action. Apache RR 310 comes with clip-on handlebar and split seat for a sportier feel. TVS Motor recently upgraded the sportbike with a race-tuned slipper clutch and the brand also launched a new gloss black colour known as ‘Phantom Black’. The updated model of RR 310 is available for INR 2.27 lakh (ex-showroom).

Both the bikes are available with an identical frame, fuel tank, brakes, and suspension components. TVS offers bi-LED headlights on the Apache, making it more practical in comparison to the halogen headlight on the G310R. Apache RR 310 brings better top speed, lower 0-100 kph number and similar mileage figure to the BMW roadster. Both the bikes are available with 110mm front and 150mm rear tires, wrapped around similar alloy wheel design. They even share the exhaust with each other. TVS Apache RR 310 is a far better option if buyers are not concerned about the brand value associated with their motorcycle, saving a lot of money and still bringing more fun into your life.

The refined engine can bring 30 kmpl for the buyer while high service cost is justified with the long available interval, unlike certain brands with just 3000 km of the service period.

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
BMW G310R

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

1) Value for Money

New Dominar 400 is priced at INR 1.74 lakh, and it is placed much lower in comparison to the BMW G310R at INR 2.99 lakh. The price gap of INR 1.25 lakh is unjustified in all terms, and BMW-Motorrad seems to be using the brand name for extra cash-in as the fully-faired Apache RR 310 at INR 2.10 lakh is priced INR 89,000 lower in comparison to the G310R in Kerala. 2019 Bajaj Dominar 400 offers excellent value for money and it is the most feature-loaded motorcycle in its class. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom.

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.

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.

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. Shahid Kapoor’s G310R is finished in the iconic White shade with Red/Blue highlights.

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. Shahid is not the first celebrity to get a BMW G310R as the ace cricketer Yuvraj Singh also owns one.

BMW G310R vs BMW G310GS (Quick Comparison): Since the last three decades, BMW Motorrad is known for manufacturing bikes with large engines and they have never entered the small engine market. 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.
