This India-made BMW G310R will be the lowest capacity vehicle of the BMW Motorrad, which will also be exported to international markets as the Europe, Australia and the rest of Asia. Following the G310R, the Joint Venture between the TVS and BMW will launch a whole fleet of the sub 500 cc motorcycles in India.

Debuting in Brazil last year, the BMW G310R has the 313 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that develops 34 PS at 9500 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 7500 rpm, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The G310R also boasts of better safety equipment for the speed, power and engine size, with the 300 mm front disc brake, 240 mm rear disc brake and the dual-channel ABS.

The riding stance of the BMW G310R is more upright, suiting urban commuting and navigation with a powerful engine disposition. The wheelbase is also shorter to enable better riding and handling comfort and cornering.

The suspension looks aggressive with the yellowish-gold painted upside down front forks and mono-shock rear springs. The 17-inch alloy wheels come with Metzeler tyres. The LED side indicators, mounted close to the tail, are positioned higher than usual, at the rear. The front LED too gets positioned higher, very close to the instrument cluster. The display is a digital instrument control with Multi-Information Display.

The BMW G310R, made fully in India, from the TVS plant, will be launched in the month of October this year, when it will begin competing with the KTM Duke 390, Honda CBR250R and the Mahindra Mojo. The price of the G310R is expected to be around Rs. 1.8 lakh.
