After earlier reports of a possible launch of the highly anticipated motorcycle from the stables of BMW Motorrad, the motorcycle division of the German automotive giant is now again reportedly reconsidering introducing its all-new BMW G310 R in the Indian market.
The company which was stuck in a fix of supply related issues at the facility of Indian two-wheeler maker, TVS Motors, in Hosur in Karnataka, has again pushed its plans of launching the bike in the country and has reportedly shifted that towards the later half of this year.
BMW G 310 R
BMW is co-developing the G310 R with Indian motorcycle specialist, TVS and the bike would make its entry into the Indian market sometime next year and would be the cheapest bike in the line-up of BMW Motorrad.
The BMW G310 R is powered by a 313cc engine, which develops 34 BHP of power and 28 Nm of peak torque. The bike was earlier showcased at the Auto-Expo held in February this year and was amongst the most sought after unveils and generated huge people interest.
TVS is also developing its version of the same platform and had displayed the Akula concept at the same motor show and the motorcycle is also going to come out in its production avatar soon. BMW Motorrad will also be exporting the manufactured bikes from India to countries in Europe, Asia and also to Australia as completely built up units. The bike is the smallest capacity motorcycle from the stable of the legendary motorcycle manufacturer.
The bike also supposedly will offer supreme braking power by coming equipped with a 300mm front disc and a 240mm rear disc, with dual-channel Anti Lock Braking System (ABS) working in the background to minimize any chances of skidding.
The BMW G310 R will also get upside down front forks and a multifunction display for its instrument cluster, which will throw a plethora of options and information at the rider. The bike will contend with rivals in the same category, the major one of those includes the KTM Duke and RC 390 siblings. The BMW G310R is also expected to receive a fully-faired sibling later during its life-cycle.
