A latest promotional video of the BMW G 310 R compact naked motorcycle has been released. The video emphasizes on the motorcycle’s design and market positioning.
As the presenter makes it abundantly clear, the smallest Bimmer is not an entry level motorcycle but a premium lightweight and compact roadster. He goes on to explain the salient design features of the 310 cc naked machine.
The design highlights include tiny low-slung headlamp, fully digital dashboard, muscular fuel tank, minimal kicked up tailpiece with LED taillight and a massive silencer end canister. The premium compact sportsbike offers a relaxed riding posture.
Underpinned by a steel trellis frame, the BMW G 310 R is cushioned by inverted telescopic fork and monoshock suspension system. The 313 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor is tuned to dish out 34 PS at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. Mated to a 6-speed transmission, the naked Bimmer is claimed to have a top speed of 144 kmph and fuel efficiency of 36.05 kmpl. The cylinder head is inclined backwards and rotated through 180 degrees to achieve better packaging efficiency.
The G 310 R is the first product of the TVS-BMW technology cooperation agreement. According to the agreement, the Indian entity will be responsible for manufacturing the vehicles while the German brand will be in charge of research and development. This platform will also spawn a TVS version which is expected to be unveiled at the Auto Expo in February 2016.
