Definitely the attention grabber for the next few days at the BMW pavilion, the G 310 R makes its German influence felt in terms of styling borrowing design cues from the BMW S 1000 RR and R 1200 RR with the resemblance strong on the headlamp and air shrouds. The switchgear is in-line with the bigger BMW bikes and it gets an all-digital instrument cluster on offer. In terms of powertrain, the G 310 R uses a 313cc single-cylinder DOHC engine tuned for 34bhp at 9500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7500rpm, while paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
The cylinder head twisted around by 180-degrees on the engine and the cylinder is also canted backwards. This not only helps in a better air and fuel mixture but also makes for a lower centre of gravity and helps in better high speed stability. A lot of technologies from the bigger BMWs has also filtered down on the G 310 R. Also adding to the stree-fighter's attributes is the dual-channel ABS that is offered as standard.
Other mechanical details include USD forks up front and a monoshock setup at the rear while braking performance comes from 300mm front and 240mm rear disc brakes. BMW India announced the India entry of BMW Motorrad on February 3 at the expo and conveyed that plans regarding its motorcycle arm will be announced later in the year. The automaker is expected to set up its dealership network in 2016.
