This bike has a 43 mm upside-down front and rear monoshock damper on tubular steel chassis. The 17-inch alloy is coated in radian Michelin Pilot Street pneumatic pneumatics 110/70 R17 front and 150/60 R17 rear. The front disc is clamped with radially mounted calipers from a single 300 mm disc and a back disc of 240 mm. It is available as standard with dual-channel ABS.
G310R generates 34PS at 9500rpm and 28Nm torque at 7500rpm, sports a 313cc Liquid Single-cylinder cooling unit. BMW has twisted the bottle head to 180 degrees in order to ensure the effective burning of fuel, thus enabling the fuel and air mixture to go straight.
This transition in design also gave the bike a lower center of gravity for improved support in corners. The G310R is 158.5kg in height. For the G 310 R, BMW cites a top speed of 143 km/h and 30 km/h combined fuel efficiency.
The BMW built bike is just what you'd expect to look identical to the G310R. BMW says the bike is in the same style as we had on the latest BMW S1000RR before. The V-shaped headlight with the gold upside-down gable has an offensive location on the front. The broad sculpted 11-liter fuel tank, tank extensions, and huge exhaust are dominating the profile. The seat looks comfortable long and wide. The height of the seat is low at 785mm.
The motorcycle holds a tubeless stainless steel platform with the bound subframe as the principal structure for increased longevity. The entire electronic instrument category, including the tachometer, speedometer, fuel measurement, odometer, gear indicator, and a dedicated service indicator, gives a constant riding experience to the all-night BMW G 310 R.
Pros of BMW G310RThe older model was riddled with vibrations and with the BS6 edition, BMW has straightened out the problem. Much as with TVS Apache RR 310, BMW has used rubber mountings and small improvements that have culminated in very few good vibrations that wouldn’t trouble you except on longer trips.
The previous model had a folding suspension setup, but with a pillion on top, the bike felt a little wally. For the BS6 iteration, the German maker tinkered with the setup, making it marginally stiffer. The effect is a configuration that provides more of a composite journey, also with a pillion on board.
The BS6 BMW G 310 R is significantly improved in the braking section. Now, the brake lever has more consistency than the BS4 edition. Adding to this is better development and reviews.
Taking the lead from the RR 310, the BMW G 310 R is now having a ride-by-wire throttle, unlike the Indian siblings.
A new range of sleeker indicators is also offered to the bike. Replacing the halogen model used on the older bike, the updated G 310 R features a full LED headlamp unit with LED DRLs.
The greatest annoying thing about the older G 310 R was the high selling price. BMW resolved this by lowering the price to Rs 54,000, besides introducing new features to the bike.
Cons of BMW G310RThe Michelin Pilot Street tires, however, are playing spoilsport. Not only can the tires restrict handling, but they also impair the sensation of braking. The Michelin Road 5 tires would have been ideal for the work. The Michelin Pilot Street tires lack grip, thereby impacting complex handling. With a tuned suspension and a vibrant-free engine, you'd like to get something out of the bike.
Moreover, it has no need for components like LED headlamps that are also present in a Yamaha FZ-25 at too high a price. The AOH laws are very energy-consuming and traditional headlamps can guarantee that the battery dies very soon.
The price drop of Rs. 54,000 has its effects. The bike is still fitted with the LCD monitor seen in the previous edition. Except though scooters provide navigation and mobile access, the BMW console seems very dated.
Although BMW has nailed it to the price, the cost of replacement parts can still hold buyers at distance. The brand has discussed this problem and claims that few raw materials are inexpensive than the TVS Apache 310RR.
