The G 310 R and G 310 GS are said to be the major contributors to BMW Motorrad's improved sales performance in India. 

    BMW’s sales charts in big markets like the USA were on fire, with a 32.1 percent rise in sales. It was a similar case in the UK too, with 9,263 units sold vis-a-vis 7,315 units in the previous year,
