BMW Motorrad, at the Osaka Motorcycle Show 2017, has showcased the BMW G310R. The bike is the first product of the joint venture between BMW Motorrad of Germany and TVS Motor of India.
The joint venture was confirmed back in April 2013 and the bike made its Indian debut at the 2016 Auto Expo. BMW G310R follows the styling of the bigger S1000R naked roadster and gets 41 mm upside down forks up front and a die-cast aluminium swingarm with a directly hinged monoshock in the rear with adjustable preload.
Brakes include a single 300 mm disc in the front with four piston, radially mounted fixed caliper and a 240 unit in the rear with single piston floating caliper. ABS, like in all BMW Motorrad motorcycles, is standard. The BMW G310R tips the scales at 158.5 kg and has a seat height of 785 mm.
Powering the BMW G310R is a 313 cc single cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-valve, DOHC mill coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine needs at least 95 octane petrol and is capable of producing 34 PS of maximum power at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm.
The BMW G310R has been delayed for the Indian market and is expected to be launched in late 2017.
