BMW Motorrad India launched the new G 310 R and G 310 GS in the country on October 8.
The new BMW G 310 R and BMW G 310 GS have been developed in Munich, Germany by BMW Motorrad and are locally produced as per BS-VI standards in Hosur, India, by cooperation partner TVS Motor Company.
Mr. Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India said, “Globally, BMW Motorrad has created a distinct position for itself in the fast-growing sub-500 cc segment with both BMW G 310 R and BMW G 310 GS. For thousands of riders and enthusiasts, the BMW G 310 R has redefined pure urban motorcycling for everyday life. For those looking for adventure and fun, BMW G 310 GS has provided the perfect reason to take the off-beat track. In their new avatar, both motorcycles feature striking design modifications, new technology and enhanced riding dynamics.”
A company press release said the new BMW G 310 GS has a high level of versatility that is unrivalled in the segment. Nimble and agile in traffic, yet supremely robust over tough terrain, its agility opens up a whole new world of riding experience. Extremely compact, yet mature and comfortable, it is the perfect companion for adventures of everyday riding, the release added.
The new BMW G 310 R and BMW G 310 GS now feature a full-LED headlight and LED flashing turn indicators and LED brake lights for increased visibility in traffic.
Both, the clutch lever and the handbrake lever are now adjustable in four stages. In both bikes, the engine housing covers for the alternator, clutch and water pump are finished in new Titanium Grey metallic colour. In the BMW G 310 R, this further extends to the footrest plates and rear grab handle, enhancing the modern look.
The new bikes have a BS-VI engine. It is a 313-cc water-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine with four valves and two overhead camshafts with electronic fuel injection. With an output of 34 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm, the engine is an ideal partner for dynamic riding pleasure.
The newly introduced ‘Ride by Wire’ system passes on the rider’s commands directly from a sensor on the twist grip to the engine control system resulting in even finer control and improved throttle response.
The high-performance brake system with two-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) ensures efficient deceleration and short-braking distances. The standard multi-function instrument cluster has a large display that offers excellent clarity and a range of information.
