New riders have been eyeing the all-new G310R ever since its entrance into the small-bike category was announced (see our G310R First Ride Review here). Pricing, however, has not been released until today. BMW has finally announced the MSRP for the India-built novice bike along with pricing and updates for three other models including the 2018 K1600B Bagger, the K1600GTL luxury touring machine, and the 2017 K1600GT sport tourer.

2018 BMW G310R
MSRP: $ 4,750
To further enhance the aggressive price position of this lightweight roadster, BMW has lowered its standard destination and handling fee from $495 to $245 for this model. With an all-inclusive price of $4,995, the G310R will be BMW's most affordable motorcycle in their entire model line. A sporty design, excellent fuel efficiency, lower seat, lighter weight and compact size should appeal to beginners, smaller riders, urban riders, older or returning riders looking for a more manageable motorcycle, and riders who simply want a BMW for less than five grand.
Colors:
* Cosmic Black ($0)
* Strato Blue Metallic ($0)

2018 BMW K1600B
MSRP: $19,995 (As announced during Daytona Bike Week in March)
Inspired by Concept 101 and largely based on the K1600GT and GTL, the K1600B was developed specifically with American riders and roads in mind. It features a spectacular backward sloping linear design with a specifically engineered rear section to reflect the characteristics of an American tourer. This not only makes the bagger appear low-lying and slender, but a new rear frame also contributes to this aesthetic by significantly reducing the height of the passenger seat.
