The motorcycle targets young urban audience.

The official website for the BMW G310R compact naked sportsbike has gone live and guess what, India doesn’t feature among the list of markets that will receive the motorcycle first!

Absence of India is the list of markets is quite surprising given that motorcycle has entered production at TVS’ Hosur plant for global consumption. The website also reveals the complete specifications of the baby Bimmer.

The G310R will have India as its global production base.

The G310R is based on a new platform which is engineered by BMW in Germany and manufactured by TVS in Indian as per the technology cooperation agreement between the two companies. Manufacturing it India gives BMW a cost advantage which is reflected in the bike’s price tags for the UK and Germany.

The most affordable Bimmer undercuts the likes of KTM Duke 390, Kawasaki Z300 and Yamaha MT-03 in the international markets. The compact street fighter complies with the EU-4 emission standards.

BMW's launch plans for its latest production in India remains unclear as of now. We expect it to be launched in the coming months.
