A fresh batch of images of the upcoming BMW motorcycle – G 310 R – has emerged online, giving us yet another glimpse at the model ahead of its arrival in the country. BMW G 310 R has been undergoing testing in the country for quite some time now.
Caught on camera by ThrustZone, the latest images show the new BMW offering in its undisguised form. BMW G 310 R is expected to be launched in the country in October this year. BMW has launched the G 310 R in the UK in June with a price tag cheaper than that of the KTM Duke 390 prices in the region. In India, G 310 R is likely to be priced starting at Rs. 1.8 lakh.
The G 310 R, the first sub 500cc motorcycle of the German bike maker BMW Motorrad, will be manufactured at the TVS Motor facility in Tamil Nadu. The motorcycle is jointly developed by Indo-German alliance BMW Motorrad and TVS Motor Company.
Powered by an all-new 313cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine with electronic fuel injection, the G 310 R can churn out a power of 33.5bhp at 9,500rpm and maximum torque of 28Nm at 7,500rpm, mated to a six-speed gearbox. It employs a 300mm disc brake at the front, and 240mm at the rear. It features front upside down forks and mono shock suspension at the rear. In terms of dimensions, it measures 1988mm in length, 896mm in width, 1227mm in height and has a wheelbase of 1374mm.
It is the first BMW motorcycle to be manufactured outside Europe. In India, the BMW G 310 R will be pitted against KTM Duke 390 and Mahindra Mojo.
