BMW G310R spied on Chennai-Bangalore highway


Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Expected to launch in India in October.

IAB readers Gautham Athanki, Sarath Kumar, Deepak Thavaselvam and Navin Kumar have spotted a couple of pre-production BMW G310R prototypes testing on the Chennai-Bangalore highway. It is expected to launch in India in October.

The BMW G310R is the first bike from the BMW Motorrad – TVS joint venture that will also spawn the TVS Akula 310. The G310R will be produced at TVS’s plant in Hosur with a high-degree of localization, making it the first ‘Made in India’ BMW bike. It will also be exported from India to global markets.

Powering the G310R is an all-new 313 cc backward-tilted single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with DOHC producing 34 hp (25 kW) at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm, paired to a 6-speed transmission. Stopping power comes from a single 300 mm front disc brake with radially bolted 4-piston caliper and a 240 mm rear disc brake that has a 2-piston floating caliper, supplemented by a two-channel ABS.

Given that the G310R will appeal to a much wider audience than their more expensive CBU portfolio, BMW Motorrad will have to increase the number of outlets across India. Currently, they are only represented by two distributors – Deutsche Motoren for Delhi NCR and Navnit Motors for the rest of India.
