BMW G 310 RR bolsters sportsbike range

BMW G 310 RR Released Sportsbike TVS_01


BMW has formally unveiled the latest addition to its entry-level G-series range with the launch of the BMW G 310 RR, joining the S 1000 RR and M 1000 RR in the Munich marque’s sports bike line-up.

Getting its world premiere in India - where it is built as part of a collaboration with TVS Motors - the G 310 RR joins the R roadster and GS soft-roader in BMW’s most affordable range.

Based on the TVS Apache RR 310, which shares its underpinnings with the G 310, the RR doesn’t deviate far from its sister model’s tapered full-fairing and compact silhouette but layers on recognisable BMW traits in the angular front-end and signature white, red and blue livery.

From the riders’ seat, a 5-inch Bluetooth-enabled TFT dashboard comes as standard, plus USD telescopic front forks, ABS and Michelin Pilot Sport tyres

Under the skin, the G 310 RR packs the same 312cc engine as its siblings, boasting 34bhp and 27Nm of torque. It means the G 310 RR should be considered something of a ‘warm’ rival to the hotter KTM RC390 and Yamaha R3, which offer 43.5bhp and 41.4bhp respectively.

For now, it appears the G 310 RR is only being primed for sale in its native India, where it comes in at a starting price of 2.85 lakh, which is a direct conversion of just under £3,000.

With a small price premium over the equivalent G 310 R, should BMW decide to bring the G 310 RR to Europe too then expect prices of just over £5,000.
