Perfect for city commute, the BMW G310R offers easy manoeuvring with the performance of a sports bike. The workmanship on the engine is peerless: a synonym for all bikes BMW’s craftsmanship. Designed along the lines of its good looking cousin, the S 1000R, it will surely have heads turning. The bike is available in three colours- Strato Blue Metallic, Pearl White Metallic and Cosmic Black.
The BMW G310R is packed with an upside down 41mm fork supporting the front in addition to an adjustable monoshock preload at the rear. A standard feature of this bike is the twin channel ABS. Braking power is a function of the 300mm solo disc caliper which is bolted radially in the front and a twin piston 240mm caliper at the rear. Weighing at 158kgs, the bike makes it to the list of street bikes with a sporty performance. According to the reports released by the manufacturer, the expected top speed is 145kmph with high fuel efficiency of 36.5kmpl. The actual figure, however, will be evident only after the bike’s launch. The two tires are at 110/70 17’’ tyre in the front and 150/60 at the rear. The relatively limited fuel tank will need refilling after running 330kms.
The much spoken about headlight design may look unconventional at first but grows on you. Keeping the theme of a fresh design, the fuel tank is rotated by 1800 in order to bring the centre of gravity down, transforming a bike as bulky as this into an agile monster. The bike is 1988mm long and 896mm wide with a height of 1227mm.
In the instrument console, the digital is a single screen with display of tachometer, redline indicator, speedometer, trip meter and odometer, among other stats. An angular wind shield protects the digital display.
