BMW Group has sent out a “Block Your Date” invite for an event scheduled on July 18, 2018. While the invite does not mention the agenda of the event, it will most likely mark the arrival of the new BMW G 310 duo. As reported earlier, BMW Motorrad had started accepting bookings for its entry level models, the G 310 R and G 310 GS in the Indian market, from June 8, 2018 for a token amount of INR 50,000. In fact. select dealerships had unofficially started accepting the bookings for the motorcycles back in April 2018.
An official communication from BMW Motorrad stated that the G 310 R and G 310 GS will be sold and serviced through the premium dealer network of BMW Motorrad that is present across important centres in India including Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Kochi. BMW Motorrad’s upcoming dealerships in Chandigarh and Kolkata will start accepting bookings of the motorcycles post launch. Deliveries will be done on a first come first serve basis as per orders.
