    In India, as has been the case for the past four years, the BMW G 310 series of bikes – the G 310 R, G 310 RR and G 310 GS – has been the biggest sales contributors, and it was no different in 2022. BMW Motorrad India’s product portfolio received a new charge in mid-2022 when it launched the third member of the 310 series – the G 310 RR. The 310 trio commanded a share of 90 percent of BMW Motorrad India’s motorcycle sales in CY2022. Other popular models in the Indian market are the S 1000 RR sportbike, R 1250 GS adventure bike range and the C 400 GT scooter.

    Thanks to the G 310 series, the company recorded strong performance in the sub-500cc segment. The single-cylinder G 310 model line-up, which is manufactured by strategic partner TVS Motor at its Hosur plant, continued to enjoy unbroken popularity in 2022. Over 24,000 units of the G 310 series were sold worldwide – 7,282 units in India and 19,099 units exported.
