BMW Motorrad India launched the all-new BMW G
310 R and the all-new BMW G 310 GS in India. The all-new BMW G 310 R is
priced at Rs 2,99,000, while the all-new BMW G 310 GS is priced at Rs 3,49,000,
ex showroom. Newly conceived from scratch, the all-new BMW G 310 R and the
all-new BMW G 310 GS mark its foray into the sub-500 cc segment in India.
The all-new BMW G 310 R and
the all-new BMW G 310 GS are powered by a completely newly developed 313 cc
water-cooled single-cylinder 4-stroke engine with four valves and two overhead
camshafts together with electronic fuel injection. With an output of 34 hp at
9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm, the engine is an ideal
partner for dynamic riding pleasure. A remarkable feature of the engine is its
backward-tilted cylinder in open-deck design with the cylinder head turned by
180 degrees, making it possible to position the intake tract at the front,
viewed in the direction of travel. The motorcycles accelerate from 0 – 50 km/hr
in just 2.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 143 km/hr.
The newly engineered 6-speed
gearbox transfers the torque with an optimised transmission ratio. The all-new BMW G 310 R and
the all-new BMW G 310 GS have been developed in Munich, Germany by BMW Motorrad
and will be produced in Hosur, India by cooperation partner TVS Motor Company.
TVS has already brought out
the TVS Apache RR310 which shares a lot of its parts with the German bikes. The
new BMW bikes were launched in the presence of Dimitris Raptis, Head of Region
Asia, China, Pacific, South Africa, BMW Motorrad and Vikram Pawah, President,
BMW Group India

Racing Red. The all-new BMW G 310 GS has been launched in the following
metallic colours – Pearl White Metallic, Cosmic Black and Racing Red. (For
Style HP and Pearl White Metallic add Rs 10,000 to ex-showroom price)
The all-new BMW G 310 R
embodies the pure essence of a BMW roadster. It offers precisely what is needed
for performance and comfort. The design of the all-new BMW G 310 R makes an
unmistakable visual kinship with athletic family members such as the BMW S 1000
R. The striking headlamp, muscular fuel tank, attractive trim elements and
characteristic roadster proportions of the front and rear give it a mature
presence on the road. Compact proportions and a short wheelbase promise fast
changes of direction, while the high rear conveys a lightness suggestive of the
bike's sporty genes. High-end details such as the standard upside-down fork,
quality materials, supplementary fittings and excellent workmanship all reflect
the finest within the segment.
The all-new BMW G 310 GS is
the perfect companion for adventures of everyday riding. With its high front
fender, striking flyline, protective windscreen, and short but high rear, it
features classic elements from the larger GS sibling models. The characteristic
beak runs as a band of colour emerging from the headlamp mask across the fuel
tank to the side trim. The high-quality luggage bridge comes as standard in the
BMW G 310 GS, combining a striking shape with functional effectiveness.
In terms of suspension, the
all-new BMW G 310 R and the all-new BMW G 310 GS have a torsionally stiff,
highly robust tubular steel frame in grid structure with bolt-on rear frame.
The front wheel suspension is taken care of by a solid upside-down fork while
at the rear there is an aluminium swinging arm in conjunction with a spring
strut that is mounted on it directly.
Both motorcycles feature a high-performance
brake system with 2-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) for efficient
deceleration and short braking distances. The standard multi-function
instrument cluster has a large liquid crystal display.
