The G 310 R and G 310 GS are the two small-capacity motorcycles that were supposed to help BMW Motorrad garner the figures for growth that it projected. India, the largest two-wheeler market in the world, was a big part of those plans. But now BMW has done an about-face and has said that the 310 twins will not be about numbers, but about quality “ something that BMW Motorrad is known for in markets globally.The specs dont make your eyes pop; the 313cc single-cylinder engine has a four-valve head and is liquid cooled. It generates 33bhp and 28Nm, and uses chain drive through a six-speed gearbox. The front forks are upside down units and sport radial brake callipers that are fixed in front, and floating at the rear, just like KTMs Dukes. It has a 12 litre fuel tank and a 145kph top speed. Tyre sizes also are familiar: 110/70-17 front and 150/60-17 rear. ABS is present.The G310 R competes with the KTM 390 Duke directly, while the Benelli TNT25 and Kawasaki Z250 are also competitors. The reputation the company has for quality has allowed it to charge a premium for its products. But with a price tag of Rs 3 lakh, one can expect to spot BMW bikes very rarely, even the 310s.
