Auto Expo 2018 is nearing, and we can’t help writing about all the bikes that are expected to be launched at this year’s Expo. Previously, we already told you about the new bikes expected to be launched by Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Honda. And today we made a list of some of the BMW bikes that are set for launch at this year’s Expo. The German automaker officially started off its Indian operations last year and since then it has brought all the major bikes present in the International market to India. The company has plans for launching two new middle-weight adventure touring bikes including BMW F750 GS and the F850 GS, while some other bikes will be up for display.

BMW F750 GS and F850 GS:

The company unveiled these bikes at EICMA show last year and now they are all set to make Indian debut at the Auto Expo 2018. The bikes brag off upgraded looks, features and most importantly an upgraded engine. In the F850 GS, the earlier 798 cc engine has been swapped off with the newer 853cc parallel-twin mill churning out 85hp and 92Nm of torque. While in the F 750GS, the same new engine has been tuned differently and hence makes out 77hp of power and 83Nm of torque.

As per the company, the new engine gets a re-engineered firing order which helps to deliver a more ‘powerful’ sound from the engine. Also, the bike gets a major upgrade in the form of a new monocoque frame with upgraded suspension setup along with a new position of the fuel tank. The F850 GS gets new upside-down 43mm front forks and the F750 GS gets new 41mm front telescopic forks. While the rear suspension duties are taken care by the aluminum double-sided swing-arm and a monoshock.

The company is also offering BMW’s electronic suspension adjustment (ESA) as an option in both the motorcycles. Talking about other major features, both the bikes are offered with standard ABS, ASC, and ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’ riding modes. Apart from that, they are also offered with full-LED lights and multi-functional instrument cluster.

Interestingly, both the bikes will be brought in the country via CBU route but even then they will be the most affordable BMW bikes in the country (of course until G 310 R and G 310 GS launch). And will lock horns against the new Triumph Tiger 800 series.  

BMW G 310 R:

The company might not launch the G 310 R, but will certainly bring the same for display at the Auto Expo 2018. It is one bike that is hugely anticipated in the Indian bike market but has been kept from getting launched since at least last one year. It runs on a new reverse mounted 313cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine churning out 33.6hp and 28Nm of torque. The bike has been developed by BMW in coordination with TVS, and is a made-in-India BMW product. When launched, the company hopes to price it aggressively against all of its competition including the new KTM 250 Duke, Kawasaki Z250 and Benelli TNT 300. Expect a price tag of around Rs 2.5 lakh when it is expected to launch by mid-2018.

BMW G 310 GS

The new small adventurer touring bike from BMW Motorrad comes out as an extension of the G 310 R, as it shares the same engine, frame and electronics as the latter but has been given different suspension setup, body, and stance to serve a different segment of motorcycle riders.

It packs long travel upside down forks to perform adventure duties with ease. Also, its long windscreen makes sure to keep the rider off the wind blast on long highway rides. It packs the same 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that comes mated to a 6-speed transmission. and delivers the same power and torque output. It will be slightly higher priced compared to its street naked version and you can expect a price tag of around Rs 2.7 lakh on the same. When launched it will compete against the new Kawasaki Versys-X300.

The company is also expected to bring a few new bikes for display such as the K 1600 B, R nine T Racer, S 1000 RR, S 1000 R, S 1000 XR, R 1200 R, R 1200 RS, R nineT, R nineT Scrambler, R 1200 GS, R 1200 GS Adventure, R 1200 RT and the K 1600 GTL.
