BMW G 310 RR: Expected Pricing In India – Will It Be Worth The Money?
Last week, BMW Motorrad India teased a new motorcycle that’s slated to debut on July 15.
While details about the two-wheeler are few, the teaser image made it clear that it will be based on the TVS Apache RR 310.
This will now be the third BMW-branded motorcycle based on the G 310 platform, which underpins the G 310 R and the G 310 GS. So, how will the Bavarian giant price its first small-capacity supersport?
The upcoming BMW G 310 RR could slot in-between the G 310 R (Rs 2.65 lakh) and G 310 GS (Rs 3.05 lakh) (all prices ex-showroom Delhi).
For reference, the standard TVS Apache RR 310 costs Rs 2.65 lakh and the BMW-badged supersport might come at Rs 2.85 lakh.
Will the German marque charge a Rs 20,000 premium just for its premium badge?
BMW Motorrad might throw-in the fully adjustable suspension from TVS’ ‘Dynamic’ package and the sporty clip-ons and rear-set footpegs from the ‘Race’ package from the RR 310’s Built-To-Order (BTO) programme as part of the standard equipment.
We can also expect BMW to give its own spin to the RR 310’s design with a few aesthetic changes which could include new headlights inspired by the BMW S 1000 RR.
Furthermore, the German marque will drape the G 310 RR in the iconic Red, Blue and Violet tricolour.
The BMW G 310 RR may seem an expensive proposition considering that the TVS Apache RR 310 is available with a cheaper price tag.
