The massive price cut strategy on the new G 310 R has been aimed to make its positioning more aggressive in the segment. Also, the deal has been made sweeter with the addition of new colour options, as well as new features including the ride-by-wire throttle response. Moreover, the bike now gets new cosmetic additions in the form of a new LED headlamp with LED DRL, LED winkers, and LED tail light. All this and a newly updated BS 6-compliant engine has managed to bring the G 310 R in the sweeter spot for customers looking in for an upgrade to a beginner level premium motorcycle.
