BMW G310R Detailed in Official Promo

Something tells us that the BMW G310R will become a bestseller quite soon after it hits the dealerships worldwide. The G310R is the first small-displacement motorcycle BMW Motorrad makes, and ever since the first rumors about it broke out, it instantaneously became one of the new riders' dream bikes.

BMW and their Indian partner TVS, with whom the Germans built the G310R, have been quite good at keeping everything as secret as possible, but this did not stop the young riders from longing for the bike, even though nobody knew anything about it.

However, it was well worth the wait, as the G310R is a true looker. BMW introduced the mini-roadster in mid-November at EICMA 2015, and we were there, taking live photos of the G310R. It may be a beginner's bike and a small-displacement one, but the premium product vibe is there, intact.Big-bike design cues and German engineering
If anything, the G310R is clearly a full member of the BMW Motorrad family. Smaller, moderately powerful and presumably way more affordable than any other BMW bike, the G310R is not the icon of cut corners.

We talked to Ola Stenegard, one of BMW's top designers, and he confirmed that the G310R is the smaller sibling of the S1000R liter-class roadster. If you take a good look at the G310R, you'll understand that it is a full-on BMW, nevertheless.

With 34bhp @ 9,500 rpm and a peak torque of 20.6 lb-ft (27.9 Nm) at 7,500 rpm, the G310R is said to be good for a 90 mph (145 km/h) top speed which is more than enough for new riders, and even for seasoned ones who don't mind riding a 313cc roadster commuting.

The price and availability are yet to be revealed, and until then you have plenty of time to analyze the G310R and prepare your budget to get one. Anyone with us in saying that the G310R will soon sell more units than any other BMW?
