Gurgaon: BMW Motorrad has launched its first entry-level sports bike in India, BMW G 310 R at Rs. 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The bike which is already on sale in many other countries had its launch delayed here in our country.

The BMW G 3 10 R borrows its design language from the bigger roadsters in the BMW range like the S 1000 R. In the India-spec model, the bike sports a saree guard on the rear wheel. BMW has also given the G 310 R a new Racing Red paint scheme while the Strato Metallic Blue colour won’t be available.

G310 R is powered by the same 313 cc, single cylinder, four-valve, liquid cooled, fuel injected engine with double overhead camshafts (DOHC) which powers the Apache RR 310. The motorcycle produces 34 PS of peak power at 9500 rpm and 28 Nm of maximum torque at 7500 rpm. All this power will propel the motorcycle which is 158.5 kg light.

The bike comes with 41 mm inverted forks and 110/70 and 150/60 tyres at the front and rear respectively, both 17 inchers. Twin channel ABS is on offer as standard. The seat height is a convenient 785 mm and it is a connected single unit.

BMW has developed the G 310 R with TVS and the bike is produced at TVS’ Hosur factory. The bike has started reaching the BMW showrooms. You can book yours for Rs. 50,000/- while deliveries are expected to begin within the coming weeks. The BMW G 310 R will be directly competing with the segment benchmark setter, the KTM Duke 390.

The bike comes with a three-year unlimited mileage warranty which is also extendable to 4th and 5th years (details of extended warranty awaited). BMW is also offering finance schemes through their official arm and the roadster could be had for a monthly EMI of Rs 6999 per month.
