Packs 34 hp and 28 Nm.
The BMW G310R, formerly referred to as BMW-TVS K03 (codename), has been unveiled online by BMW Motorrad. The company has released detailed specifications and photos of the naked street fighter.
The company’s first sub-500 cc motorcycle is powered by a 313 cc liquid-cooled backward-tilted single-cylinder engine with an 80 mm bore, a 62.1 mm stroke and DOHC. It produces 34 hp (25 kW) at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm.
The engine is fastened to a rigid tubular steel frame that is suspended by upside-down fork and a long, aluminium swing arm with monoshock. Stopping power comes from a 300 mm front disc brake with radially bolted 4-piston fixed caliper, and a 240 mm rear disc rotor with a 2-piston floating caliper, both governed by ABS as standard. The tyres are of sizes 110/70-R17 at the front and 150/60-R17 at the rear, which are sourced from Metzeler.
The design of the G310R takes inspiration from the BMW S1000R. It weighs 158.5 kg and has a saddle height of 785 mm. The motorcycle is developed by BMW Motorrad in Munich and will be manufactured in India by TVS Motor Company.
IAB has learnt that the G310R will coexist with its affordable, TVS version in India, and one or both of them would launch in February 2016.
