BMW’s motorbike division recently launched its newest member of the 310 series, the G 310 RR, at a price of Rs 2.85 lakh ex-showroom.
The motorcycle is available for purchase at BMW Motorrad India dealerships around the country. The new BMW G 310 RR has been launched in two colours – The standard Black storm metallic and Light White Uni, Racing Blue Metallic and Racing Red Uni colours. It was created in collaboration with BMW Motorrad and cooperation partner TVS Motor Company. The BMW G 310 RR, along with the BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS, is manufactured in India by TVS Motor Company in Hosur.
Commenting on the launch of the new G 310 RR, Markus Mueller-Zambre, Head of Region Asia, China, Pacific & Africa at BMW Motorrad said, “In just under five years, the G 310 R and G 310 GS have become immensely popular and are in high demand all over the world. The introduction of a third member further diversifies the G 310 range with R – a roadster, GS – an adventure bike and now the first-ever BMW G 310 RR – a true road racing sports bike. The BMW G 310 RR’s performance, agility, precision and raring-to-go flair reveals racing attitude. We are glad to launch it first in India which is one of the fastest growing markets for BMW Motorrad.”
Meanwhile, Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India said, “The first-ever BMW G 310 RR is the sportiest and most desirable sports bike in the sub-500 class. This bike proudly inherits the original road racing genes that have fascinated sports bike enthusiasts with unlimited adrenaline rush on tarmac. With the combination of a stunning superbike design and modern technology, it is an ultimate riding machine – your best companion on racetracks and city roads alike. With the RR, you never stop challenging.”
The BMW G 310 RR’s aerodynamic design is a carbon copy of the outgoing TVS Apache RR310. This one just comes with different badges, some distinct BMW colours and different graphics on the TFT display. Other than that the bike still boasts an aggressive and sharp face with full-led headlights, a large transparent visor and pure-black handlebars. The entire fly line is front-wheel-oriented with a dynamic front, tank-hugging seating position and a pulled-up short rear visually underline closeness to the racetrack. Other feature highlights are the standard gold upside-down fork, aluminium swingarm, handlebars with controls and the standard Michelin Pilot Street radial tyres.
In terms of the powerplant, it comes fitted with a water-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke 313-cc engine with electronic fuel injection. The engine produces a maximum power of 34hp and 27Nm that it does in the TVS and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The motorcycle accelerates from 0 – 60 km/hr in just 2.9 seconds. It also comes with four driving modes as standard – Track, Urban, Rain and Sport just like its TVS counterpart.
