The eagerly anticipated BMW G 310 R is the news again. This time, the roadster motorcycle stars in a new POV video, shot in Russia, which reveals its exhaust note, and gives a fair idea of how it’ll feel to put the G 310 R through its paces. What’s more, in the video, the G 310 R can be seen riding alongside its arch rivals – the Yamaha MT-03, the KTM Duke 390 and the Kawasaki Z300. As for the exhaust note, it does sound understated, but has a deep, rich tone to it.
Developed in Munich by BMW Motorrad, and to be produced in India by cooperation partner TVS Motor Company, the BMW G 310 R is powered by a 313cc, liquid-cooled, fuel injected, single-cylinder engine that develops 34 hp at 9,500 rpm and 28Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. Other highlights include USD front forks, standard ABS, a rigid tubular steel frame, a low seat height of just 785 millimetres, an unladen weight of 158.5 kilograms, and a roadster design with echoes of the S 1000 R. The G 310 R, BMW Motorrad’s most affordable motorcycle till date, is expected to be priced between INR 1.8-2 lakhs in India.
