Here is what our experts feel about G 310 R
Those who always dreamed of owning a BMW bike in India can now actually get one as the German automaker had launched its most affordable motorcycle till date, the G 310 R, in the country in July 2018. The motorcycle has been developed by the BMW's R&D team at its facility in Germany and it looks much inspired by the company's litre-class naked - the S 1000 R. On the other hand, production part is handled by its Indian partner in the small capacity motorcycles venture, TVS Motor Company, which manufactures the G 310 R along with the G 310 GS at its facility in Hosur, near Bengaluru.
Unlike the other big BMW bikes, the new 300cc class models are friendly for starters and a good option for those who are looking for an upgrade to their ride. With an ex-showroom price tag of Rs 2.99 lakh (Delhi), the BMW G 310 R competes with the likes of the KTM 390 Duke, Benelli TNT 300 and the Kawasaki Z250.
Powering the BMW G 310 R is a 313cc, single-cylinder engine which comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. The motor comes with a liquid-cooling system and churns out 34PS of power at 9,500rpm and a peak torque of 28Nm at 7,500rpm. The engine is fed by an electronic fuel injection system (EFI) and the company claims that the bike returns a fuel efficiency of 30kmpl.
BMW says that the G 310 R can achieve 50kmph from the standstill in just 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 143kmph. Apart from the performance part, the engine also contributed to the riding dynamics of the motorcycle. It has a unique reverse mounting which means unlike the other motorcycles, its cylinder is leaned towards the rear. Also, the exhaust port of the engine has been placed at the rear side which allows increasing the swingarm length while keeping the wheelbase shorter, It gives a favourable geometry for better agility in a sports bike.
The BMW G 310 R is based on a trellis frame that provides excellent stiffness to the chassis. The front of the motorcycle comes suspended on 41mm inverted telescopic forks while the rear gets a spring-loaded shock absorber with preload adjustability. The front suspension offers a travel of 140mm while that of the rear setup is 131mm. The standard seat height of the motorcycle is 785mm which is adequate for average Indian riders. However, the company further gives options to opt for accessory seats offering ride height of 770mm for short and 800mm far tall riders. Unladen weight of the motorcycle in the fully fuelled, road-ready condition is 158.5kg which is quite manageable.
The bike has 17-inch cast wheels with 110mm wide front and 150mm wide rear tyre. The rubber of Michelin Pilot Street tyres provide excellent grip and boosts riders confidence. The BMW G 310 R gets a 300mm disc brake up front with a radially-mounted four-piston caliper while the rear gets a 240mm disc with single-piston floating caliper. The bike also gets a dual-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) as a standard feature to assist the rider in safe braking.
The BMW G 310 R comes with premium, wide tyres offering excellent grip on tarmac and high-performance braking setup generates ample amount of stopping power. The BMW Motorrad ABS offers impressive feedback and progression while preventing your wheel from locking in panic braking situations. The side-stand of the motorcycle comes with a cut-out feature so you can’t ride while the stand is applied. The fully-digital, multi-functional display of the G 310 R offers digital clock, speed, rev and gear display, dual trip distance counters, coolant temperature, fuel level, range display and side stand warning among the other features.
