BMW launches India-made G 310 R motorbike in Europe
German automaker BMW Motorrad has launched the India-made 2021 G 310 R motorcycle in Europe. The bike is manufactured by TVS Motor Company at its Hosur factory and exported to overseas markets. As for the highlights, the premium two-wheeler is identical to the India-specific model, featuring a refreshed design, an all-LED lighting setup, and a 313cc, single-cylinder engine. Here's our roundup.
The 2021 G 310 R sits on a tubular space frame and has a sporty look. It gets a stepped-up seat, a muscular fuel tank with shrouds, golden-colored front forks, and an upswept exhaust pipe. The motorcycle packs a digital instrument console, an all-LED lighting setup, and rides on blacked-out alloy wheels. It has a kerb weight of 158.5kg and an 11-liter fuel tank.
The Europe-specific BMW G 310 R draws power from a Euro 5-compliant 313cc, single-cylinder engine that comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and a slipper clutch. The mill generates a maximum power of 34hp at 9,500rpm and a peak torque of 28Nm at 7,500rpm.
To ensure the rider's safety, the BMW G 310 R is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels along with dual-channel ABS, ride-by-wire throttle, automatic stability control, and a dynamic traction control system. Meanwhile, the suspension duties on the motorbike are taken care of by 41mm USD forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
In Europe, the 2021 G 310 R carries a price-tag of £4,875 (approximately Rs. 4.8 lakh), making it costlier than the outgoing model. Meanwhile, in India, the bike is priced at Rs. 2.45 lakh (ex-showroom).
