BMW G310R has long been a much anticipated motorcycle to grace out of a premium manufacturer in the domestic market. With its launch speculations running wild for more than two years, it is time to finally settle the dust as the German brand will be introducing the naked street fighter by the end of this month or in early July. We have picked the five best things you need to know about this globally well-received motorcycle:
BMW G310R Expected Price:
The G310R is expected to be priced at around Rs. 3.3 lakh while its adventure cousin, the G310 GS, could cost Rs. 3.6 lakh (on-road, prices). It has been reported that dealers have started accepting bookings for G310R initial amount of Rs. 50,000, which is completely refundable.
BMW G310R Engine And Specs:
The BMW G310R derives power from a 313 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine, which is connected to a six-speed transmission. This engine should be able to kick out 34 PS of peak power at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm.
It is developed keeping the city riders in mind and therefore we can expect smooth performance. The engine is also expected to return an impressive overall fuel economy of around 30-35 kmpl and top out 144 kmph.
BMW G310R Local Manufacturing:
The BMW G310R and its adventure cousin are produced at TVS’ Hosur factory. No compromises are made on the quality as the global spec version exported to European and United States markets as well as the one to be sold in India are of the same. Its launch was delayed in India as BMW waited to establish decent chain of dealerships.
BMW G310R Design:
The BMW G310R comes equipped with a very aggressive design and was first revealed as a stunt concept in Brazil. Having made world debut at 2015 EICMA in Milan, it comes with a sharp headlamp, high mounted LED turn indicators and a fully digital instrument cluster.
Tipping the weighing scale at 158.5 kg, it has a muscular appearance to give rider better control over the machine and the reverse sloping engine ensures low centre of gravity. It sports narrow tail end, stepped-up seat, chrome plated side mounted exhaust, integrated grab rail and LED taillight.
BMW G310R Rivals:
The BMW G310R naked street fighter will take on competitors such as KTM Duke 390, Kawasaki Z250 and the Benelli TNT 300. Going by the specifications, it will also rival Bajaj Dominar 400 that costs only almost half its price.
