Last week, we had brought you the details of the new G 310 R, a motorcycle to be co-produced by BMW–TVS. This time around, we got our hands on some more, new details of this upcoming motorcycle such as color options, a detailed view of the instrument cluster and the complete technical specifications.
The rectangular multi-functional instrument cluster on the G 310 R includes a LCD display at the centre which is surrounded with tell-tale indicators on both the sides. The liquid crystal digital display is claimed to offer excellent clarity along with a wide range of information such as the odometer, fuel gauge, trip meter, top speed, average speed, tachometer, clock, gear position and engine temperature. Left side of the digital display houses the low fuel warning, neutral light, turn indicators and high-beam indicator. To the right side of the digital display is a general warning indicator, low battery level indicator, ABS light, an engine warning indicator and a gear up-shift indicator.
The overall display looks compact in images and, to a certain extent reminds us of the unit that is seen on the Suzuki Gixxer 155/SF. Compare that against the unit on the KTM motorcycles in India and you have equal amount of information, if not more, in an even more compact unit than any other product in the segment. The switchgear is not something out of the box either, as one would expect from a BMW Motorrad product. The list of controls include electric ignition, engine kill switch and pass light to name a few. The steel-braided brake lines, apart from adding to the list of premium features of the G 310 R, should also improve the braking feedback.
The G 310 R will be powered by a 313 cc liquid cooled, single cylinder engine which produces a maximum power of 34 hp at 9500 rpm and a maximum torque of 28 Nm at 7500 rpm mated to a 6 speed gearbox. Other features include a 11 litre fuel tank, upside down forks, ABS, aluminium swing arm and a 240 mm disc brake at the rear and a 300 mm disc brake at the front.
