BMW G310R Not Coming to India this Year
G310R is built in TVS’s Hosur plant and exports for the motorcycle are continuously being increased for European demands. India will get the same frame, engine and feel under the upcoming TVS Apache RR 310S.
Those who have plans to buy a new bike this year, and were confused planning one out of G310R and Apache RR 310S, can now easily bet on the fully-faired racer by TVS. Apache RR 310S will soon get its official debut for India and may launch at an even more attractive price. If everything goes the same way as present, a full test ride experience is not far for the motorcycle. TVS is using an all-new vertical console on RR 310S.
BMW G310R is powered by a 313cc, single cylinder engine that comes with fuel injection and liquid cooling. The same motor is planted into the Apache RR 310S while a different state of tune is expected from the motorcycle.
The engine on the G310R is good for 34 PS at 9500 rpm and 28 Nm at 7500 rpm. BMW claimed top speed is 143 kmph while Apache could get an even better top end with its aerodynamic design. The concept version of the Apache RR 310S (Akula) weighs just 130 kg due to heavy use of carbon fiber while production version will definitely get a raised weight of more than 160 kg.
BMW G310R posed the biggest threat for KTM 390 Duke as a buyer would have been confused between the two due to close expected pricing. Internationally, both the bikes are priced close and are exported from India.
G310R gets ABS as standard while the same cannot be confirmed for Apache RR 310S. The USD forks, wide tyres and same beastly stance of the TVS version could fetch many buyers who are thinking of getting away from KTM RC twins. RR 310S will also rival Mahindra Mojo due to the use of premium components in both the bikes.
