BMW G310R European Price Announced, Still Waiting for the US One

Even though only a few BMW Motorrad national dealers revealed the price of the all-new G310R, we're bringing this info to you so that you know what to prepare for. So far, we have prices from the bike's home market, Germany, Switzerland and the UK.

Across Europe, we can expect the G310R to retail for similar base prices, give or take, with the variations caused by different VAT values, different import taxes, on-the-road costs, and all. In Germany, the 2016 BMW G310R in its stock trim retails for €4,750 ($5,265), which makes it €225 cheaper than Yamaha's new small-displacement naked MT-03 machine.

The G310R also appears to be a tad cheaper than more of its direct rivals, such as the KTM 390 Duke, or the Kawasaki Z300. However, with the German mini-roadster only capable of 34 horsepower, we might expect that customers will have a rather hard time making a choice.

That is because the Yamaha MT-03 produces 42 hp, the Z300 39, whereas KTM endowed their 390 Duke with a 43.5 hp peak power. We can also guess that the badge on the tank and the S1000R-inspired styling will weigh significantly when it comes to pulling the trigger on a naked small-displacement bike.

Despite the fact that the G310R is an entry-point bike, BMW Motorrad prepared a neat list of optional accessories that looks similar to what bigger machines usually get. It includes a luggage rack with two options for topcases, a 30-liter one in Granite matte metallic grey, and a 29-liter regular one, an inner bag for the top case, a comfort seat and a lower one for riders with a shorter inseam, and heated grips. The G310R can also be equipped with a center stand, LED turn signals and a 12V socket, whereas ABS is standard by EU regulations.

The price for the US market was not disclosed yet, but we know that in Switzerland, the BMW G310R will retail for CHF5,350 ($5,460), whereas in the UK, dealers are taking orders for a £100 deposit, with the final price being £4,290 ($5,730). We converted the money to USD for the sake of simple comparison, and we'll be hunting for the US price these days.
