    Default BMW G310 R & G310 GS to be launched on July 18, 2018 in Gurgaon!

    Guys, we've just received an invitation from BMW Motorrad to attend the launch of the BMW G310 R and BMW G310 GS on July 18, 2018, in Gurgaon.

    This is the first official confirmation of the launch by BMW. Earlier we had received an invitation to block our dates for July 18, 2018, but BMW didn't clarify the products, although it was anybody's guess as to what product was going to be launched.

    But the wait is finally over.

    With outstanding agility, dynamic performance and trademark BMW Motorrad quality, these motorcycles will take BMW’s premium aspiration to under 500 cc segment and redefine it.

    Kindly note the date and time of the press conference:

    Date: 18 July 2018
    Time: 12:15 hours

    Mr. Dimitris Raptis, Head of Region Asia, China, Pacific, South Africa, BMW Motorrad and Mr. Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India will launch the new motorcycles and address the press conference.
    The bookings for these two bikes officially started on June 8, 2018, https://www.xbhp.com/talkies/news/40...ne-2018-a.html

    And xBhp was the first to review both these bikes in India, though we had to fly to Australia to ride these bikes. You can read our review of BMW G310 R and G310 GS here https://www.xbhp.com/talkies/bike-re...r-g310-gs.html

    Cool! Everyone is eagerly waiting to know the (Premium) prices for these bikes. Understand it will be priced at a premium but hope they don't price it way too premium because it is still Made in India and quality should not be projected for premium pricing since good quality is a standard for products to sell.

    If they go by the way KTM has priced it's bikes in India they should set the price in the range of 2.6-3.2L including the additional cost of that three letter label.

    I do not understand why People are ready to accept premium pricing just because of BMW badge.

    Purely on merits, anything beyond 2.3 L for this is a NO go zone. Germans are not known for exact reliability either and given our dusty, humid conditions.. they need to prove themselves on biking front before they can ask for any premium. On Paper comparison, this do not stand a chance to Duke 390 and all comparison so far have declared Duke as winner.

    Our Indian market is unique in many ways, I am hoping BMW will consider that and Price it aggressively if they want volumes and profits. If they are content selling in three digits a monthly initially and than double digits later on, that;s another story.

    Yeah because a brand stands for something other than just name.

    Sorry, these are mutually exclusive when you come to this category in India, either they get volume or they get profits, not both at the same time. This is not a spelndor/passion segment which targets both.

    I expect them to make that brand name first before asking a Premium of big One for name. Just because they are Sold in Europe does n't make them premium. they have not proved themselves yet in targeted segment. If they are expecting a Premium of 1 Lakh just for logo and with 8 odd service centers, i would say god bless the poor ones who will put that kind of money on table. I hope you remember Inazuma which was a far superior bike to this GS but still failed due to its horrible pricing. Same hold good for Versys 300 X . Heard they has single digit sales in since launch as of previous month.

    RE & KTM have shown that they both can be achieved at same time.

    Overdrive SPECULATES (MAY NOT BE ACTUAL PRICES)-
    310 R priced @ 2.75 lakh ex-showroom
    310 GS priced @ 3.4 lakh ex-showroom
    Source: http://overdrive.in/news-cars-auto/e...espectively-2/
    If true, most excellent pricing by BMW, these bikes are going to be rarer than the 1200GS on our roads
