The BMW G310R is the most affordable BMW badged motorcycle on sale.

The naked roadster BMW G310R was expected to launch in India in the first half of 2017. A new report in Bike India though claims that the smallest BMW will be launched "later this year".

The BMW G310R has been developed by BMW Motorrad in Germany and will be manufactured by TVS and exported to the world.

BMW Motorrad will instead bring in their flagship motorcycles to India next. These include products like the K 1600, R 1200, the BMW R nine T and the BMW S1000 range. What’s surprising is that even the 800 cc motorcycles might not make it to India.

The BMW G310R has been developed by BMW Motorrad in Munich and is built by TVS in Hosur. The bike is powered by a 313 cc single cylinder mill which is coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine is capable of producing 34 bhp of maximum power at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm.
