The BMW G310R is a standard or naked motorcycle developed by BMW Motorrad in collaboration with TVS Motor Company. It marks BMW's first modern sub-500 cc bike. It was shown in November 2015, and BMW said sales will begin in 2018.

The bike is powered by a four-valve 313 cc (19.1 cu in) liquid-cooled single cylinder engine that BMW says produces 25 kW (33.6 bhp) power at 9,500rpm and 28 N⋅m (21 lbf⋅ft) torque at 7,500 rpm. The configuration is unusual in that the intake is at the front and the exhaust is at the rear of the engine.[1]

BMW released the G310 GS, an adventure bike based on the G310R on July 19 2018.

History[edit]

BMW Motorrad announced in 2013 that they were collaborating with TVS Motor Company for production of series of sub-500 cc bikes.[3] These bikes were targeted for markets with prominence of lower-cc bikes and to be released as entry-level bikes.[4] This was the first time that BMW Motorrad ventured into developing the sub-500 cc bikes.[5]

BMW K03 was the code-name given to the first collaborative product of TVS-BMW. It was a test bike which was developed in India and sent to Germany for further testing and modifications.[6]

In October 2015 in Brazil, the BMW G310 Stunt was the first concept bike unveiled by BMW Motorrad.[7] The commercial version of the concept was officially unveiled by BMW Motorrad the next month, at EICMA 2015 in Milan, Italy, and was shown at the 13th Auto Expo 2016.[8] The bike is expected to be commercially released after the 2016 event in India.[9]

Like the KTM 390 series, which is designed in Europe by Austrian brand KTM and made in India in a partnership with Bajaj Auto, the G310R is marketed in different segments in different countries. The Indian website Rushlane, based on a BMW promotional video, calls the G310R "not an entry level motorcycle but a premium lightweight and compact roadster", while the US magazine Cycle World describes the same bike as "entry-level" and "a compact city-type roadster".[10][11]

Production[edit]

BMW G310R was developed with an intent to increase BMW's presence in global markets.[12] It is the first ever BMW bike not to be manufactured in Europe.[13] The design of the bike was engineered by BMW in Munich, Germany, and will be built and assembled at TVS Motor Company's Hosur automobile plant in Indian state of Tamil Nadu.[14][15] BMW Motorrad CEO Stephan Schaller said that sales of the G310R in India will begin in the first half of 2017, and BMW's US website says it will be in dealerships in the winter of 2016.[16][17]

Specifications[edit]
