The fully-faired BMW G310RR has been in the news ever since it was showcased at the ‘BMW Motorrad Days’ in Japan. As per the recent buzz, the production version of the much-anticipated sports bike is expected to make its official debut in early 2020 while India launch is expected to happen by mid-2020. BMW currently offers the G310R and G310GS under its 310 platform. On the other hand, TVS Motor offers the fully-faired Apache RR 310 based on the same platform.
Following the design language of the S1000RR superbike, the upcoming BMW G310RR will compete with the likes of Kawasaki Ninja 300, Yamaha YZF-R3, Benelli 302R, and the KTM RC 390 in the Indian market. In terms of pricing, the fully-faired sports bike will be placed in between the G310R and the G310GS.
The G310RR prototype showcased at the ‘BMW Motorrad Days’ featured carbon fibre detailing on the motorcycle which will be eventually toned down for the production variant. The under-seat exhaust system offers the bike a unique and distinguished stance, but the production model is highly unlikely to feature the same. It is expected to get the usual side-mounted exhaust system like the G310R roadster.
The production-spec model of the BMW G310RR is expected to get a similar visor for wind protection with sporty fairing at the front. The clip-on bars, dual headlights, and the side fairing will offer the sports bike a beast look, and it is expected to be the best-looking sports bike in its class.
Powering the BMW G310RR would be the same 312cc, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, capable of churning out a maximum power of 34 HP and a peak torque of 28 Nm. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox while the price tag of the fully-faired sports bike from BMW-Motorrad is expected to be around INR 3.30 lakh (ex-showroom).
