While the streetfighter costs ₹ 2.99 lakh, the adventure-touring motorcycle retails at ₹ 3.49 lakh. The G 310 R is a naked street-fighter, which rivals the KTM 390 Duke, and the Bajaj Dominar 400.

BMW Motorrad has finally launched the G 310 R and G 310 GS in India. Pre-bookings for the bikes have been under way for almost a month now, at an amount of Rs50,000.

Note: All prices mentioned above are Ex-showroom, Delhi.

While BMW started to officially accept bookings from June 8, deliveries have already begun on first come first serve basis.

The BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS are powered by the same 313cc, single-cylinder, DOHC, liquid-cooled motor that produces 34PS at 9500rpm and 28Nm at 7500rpm. Here are the top five things to know about the BMW G 310 R and the BMW G 310 GS. Both the BMW bikes get 300 mm front disk brake and 240 mm rear disc brake combined with dual-channel ABS. Along with the launch, BMW Motorrad India also announced that it will offer the same three-year warranty as standard for all its motorcycles on sale in the country. The G 310 GS has been developed by BMW Motorrad in Germany and is built at the TVS plant in Hosur, India, like the G 310 R. The baby GS inherits its family's styling, including the stubby front beak, radiator shrouds, headlamp cowl and tank design. The design and specifications will also put the two bikes in the category dominated by the KTM 390 Duke, which is priced at Rs2.26 lakh (ex-showroom). The kerb weights for the G 310 R and G 310 GS are 158.5kg and 169.5kg, respectively. The difference lies in the travel, with the GS providing 180mm of travel, and the wheel size. It also gets upside down forks, mono-suspension at the rear, and alloy wheels with tubeless tyres.

On the other hand, BMW G 310 GS adventure tourer will face competition from Royal Enfield Himalayan and Kawasaki Versys-X 300.
