This BMW G310R ad will make you want to buy it right away

BMW G310R promo video skating

The motorcycle will be pitted against the likes of KTM Duke 390.

Just as the chatter about the BMW G310R started waning, the two wheeler maker has come up with an interesting promotional video. The made-in-India motorcycle is expected to make its global sales debut in the coming months.

Developed as a part of the technology cooperation agreement with India’s TVS Motor Co., the G310R has been completely engineered by BMW. TVS will be in charge of¬†production of the street fighter at its Hosur facility.

As a part of the agreement, TVS will have its own derivative based on the same platform but it will be a fully faired motorcycle. The Akula 310 concept serves as a design precursor to the flagship TVS.

Coming back to the G310R, as the promo video indicates, BMW Motorrad is targeting young and active customers. The most affordable Beemer would be a good stepping stone for a rider into the world of bigger sportsbikes.

    There are some other auto blogs who posted negative articles about the motorcycle based on this video, which was strange. Good to see a positive one.

      Negatives and positives will always be there. I think most negatives take birth the moment people hear something is manufactured in India, these people cannot digest that India can also product quality products at low cost for example Harley Street 750, manufactured in India and I guess this should be the first American bike that’s actually being assembled in USA and not manufactured. Same comes with BMW+TVS collaboration, people would say this is substandard and what not but only time will tell. Looking at the success of Duke/RC from KTM I think we are headed to the right direction.

    I some how liked the looks of Mahindra Mojo compared to the BMW’s G310R. Not sure how many of them agree with what I say. But to me Mojo was “LOOKING” far better.

      Actually Mahindra Mojo is a great looking bike but as Mahindra is a new entry to the motorcycle segment, they shall face issues with tech and public feedback. Time and experience is more important. Now BMW on other hand is lending it’s expertise to TVS and with their experience and tech I am sure G310 is going to be better when it comes to feedback. ABS as standard is a welcome move esp for Indian roads and moreover I’m from Delhi where everyone takes pride in becoming the next serial killer on wheels.
