BMW G 310 R review
The strength of the G 310 R is in its lightness and agility. The 313 ccm single-cylinder four-stroke engine not only delivers fun in the big-city tumult, but also when you are redefining the city limits when changing corners quickly. 16 kW (34 ps) at 9,250 rpm 16 Nm maximum tightening torque at 7,500 rpm.
The G310R is exactly what you would expect a BMW designed bike to look like. BMW says that the bike follows the same design language that we have already seen on the new S1000R. The V-shaped headlight with the golden finished upside down forks gives the front an aggressive stance. The profile is dominated by the large sculpted 11-litre fuel tank, the tank extensions and the massive exhaust. The seat looks long and wide enough for comfort. Seat height at 785mm is low.
G310R sports a 313cc single-cylinder liquid cooled unit that produces 34PS at 9500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7500rpm. To ensure efficient burning of fuel, BMW has twisted the cylinder head around by 180 degrees thereby allowing a straight path for the fuel and air mixture. This change in the architecture has also given the bike a lower centre of gravity for increased confidence over corners. The G310R tips the scale at 158.5kg. BMW claims a top speed of 143kmph and combined fuel efficiency of 30kmpl for the G 310 R. The bike gets a tubular steel frame with 43mm upside-down front forks and rear monoshock damper. It gets 17-inch alloys wrapped in 110/70 R17 front and 150/60 R17 rear Michelin Pilot Street radial tyres. Braking is via a single 300mm front disc clamped with radially mounted calipers and a 240mm rear disc. It gets dual-channel ABS as standard.
BMW G 310 R Price: The new BMW G 310 R is expected to be priced at Rs 2,45,000 lakh
