The Bavarian manufacturer recently launched the 2020 G 310R and G 310GS in India at almost Rs 55,000 more affordable than the outgoing version.

Like its predecessor, the new version also have a few high-end details such as the standard upside-down fork, quality materials, supplementary fittings and excellent workmanship all reflect the finest within the segment.
