G310R is the first bike by BMW which has not been manufactured in Europe. BMW has engineered the design of G310R in Munich, Germany, and the manufacturing and assembly part has been done at TVS Motor Company’s automobile plant in Hosur, Tamil Nadu, India. The BMW G310R is a premium street bike with a single-cylinder engine having a displacement of 313cc. Here are 5 must-know facts for the motorcycle.

5 Facts About BMW G310R

1. Most-Affordable BMW Motorcycle

Although being launched as a collaboration between BMW and TVS, the G310R featured the BMW logo on it. TVS launched Apache RR 310, which is basically based on the same platform as G310R with many similar technical specifications. G310R is sold via exclusive BMW-Motorrad dealerships in India. With an ex-showroom price tag of INR 2.99 lakh, G310R is the most-affordable BMW motorcycle you can buy in India.

2. Engine and Gearbox

The BMW G310R gets its power from 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine built with advanced technology. The bike is able to produce 34 HP of maximum power and 28 Nm of peak torque. The engine has its head-mounted backward towards convention which places the intake in the front of the cylinder block and the exhaust at the back. It has brought a positive impact on the centre of gravity and also fulfilled BMW’s promise of big bike feel in the G310R despite the bike’s compact size. The engine is mated to the 6-speed constant mesh gearbox.

3. Top Speed & Mileage

BMW G310R can make you feel good with its top speed of 143 kph, but it is lower in comparison to the top speed of KTM 390 Duke (179 kph). BMW claims the mileage of the bike to be 30 kmpl, which seems like a decent figure, considering the fact that it is a 300cc+ motorcycle. The bike has a fuel tank capacity of 11 litres along with 1-litre reserve fuel capacity.

4. Brakes & Suspension

The BMW G310R has used a steel trellis frame that sticks along the cast pivot plate and offers a bolt-on rear sub-frame to complete the base chassis. The braking duties are efficiently performed by 300 mm, single disc, 4-piston fixed calliper and radially bolted brakes at the front.

The rear brake duties are done by 240 mm, single disc, single-piston floating calliper. The suspension duties are done by 41mm upside down fork front suspension and solid die-cast aluminium swing-arm, directly hinged mono-shock, adjustable preload rear suspension. BMW G310R comes with 5-spoke alloy wheels with 110/70 R17 and 150/60 R17 tires.

5. Rival Motorcycles

The bike gives tough competition to KTM 390 Duke, TVS Apache RR 310, Mahindra Mojo 300, and Bajaj Dominar 400. The price is almost double in comparison to the Dominar while KTM Duke 390 is affordable by INR 55,000. G310R is highly overpriced and it doesn’t prove to be a good value for money motorcycle.

  • BMW G310R: INR 2.99 Lakh
  • Bajaj Dominar 400: INR 1.63 Lakh
  • TVS Apache RR 310: INR 2.23 Lakh
  • KTM 390 Duke: INR 2.44 Lakh
  • Mahindra Mojo 300: INR 1.80 Lakh

Above mentioned prices are ex-showroom Delhi.

BMW-Motorrad registered 2187 units in the entire 2018, leaving the brand with an impressive number for their first year of mass market introduction. The launch of BMW G310R and G310GS introduced a new section of buyers to the brand. Both the bikes registered 1640 units in 2018 while remaining 547 units were sold from the CBU range of products. The limited number of BMW dealerships and higher than the usual cost of bikes resulted in this sales result. However, the potential of BMW bikes is much higher as the brand serves premium components and class-leading finish to the Indian buyers.

2019 BMW S1000RR
BMW-Motorrad will soon launch the 2019 S1000RR in India

The range of BMW products starts from INR 2.99 lakh and goes up to INR 85 lakh. The most affordable product is G310R while HP4 Race commands the flagship position for the German brand. BMW G310 series is made in India at the TVS facility, resulting in cost reduction for the production by a huge margin. Still, the brand launched both these bikes at such a high price for an undisclosed reason. The flagship TVS Apache RR 310 with the full faired body, same engine as G310R and LED headlights cost just INR 2.23 lakh. This makes G310R overpriced by almost INR 1 lakh.

BMW G310R
G310R is the most-affordable BMW motorcycle in India

The same is applicable to G310GS. Still, the numbers registered is good for this huge price tag. If the launch price was lower, the number could have crossed 2000 units for the two locally produced bikes. BMW-Motorrad is yet to launch the 2019 S1000RR in India, leaving them with options that can improve their number by a small margin in 2019. The 1250 series of bikes will also soon replace the 1200cc options from the company lineup. BMW added more value to these bikes by improving the overall output and keeping the weight similar to the 2018 models.

BMW HP4 Race vs Kawasaki Ninja H2R (Quick Comparison): The 2019 model of Ninja H2R rivals BMW HP4 Race in the Indian market. H2R is supercharged and proves its worth by pushing 326 PS of maximum power out of the 998cc engine. No other production motorcycle has ever reached this mark. All this comes with a wet weight of 216 kg, resulting in the most extreme output of 1.50 PS/kg. In comparison to the H2R, BMW H4 Race is more focused on weight reduction and claims an output of 1.25 PS/kg of body weight.

The regular litre-class motorcycles mostly achieve 1:1 ratio while these two have 1.50:1 and 1.25:1 ratio. Both the motorcycles are track-specific examples of their respective road versions. Kawasaki and BMW are using the most expensive parts available for the top-spec products. However, the CBU route doubles the price tag by adding 100% tax on the price of these two bikes. Kawasaki Ninja H2R costs INR 72 lakh while BMW HP4 Race costs INR 85 lakh in India.

BMW recently launched the HP4 Race in India for INR 85 lakh. The German manufacturer is known for its reliable machines that perform extensively well in the toughest possible circumstances. If you are a fan of high-performance motorcycles with a unique approach, these five must know facts for BMW HP4 Race will blow away your mind.

5 Interesting Facts About BMW HP4 Race

1) Featherweight Frame and Body

HP4 Race measures 2070mm in length, 777mm in width and 1193mm in height. These dimensions match to almost entire SuperSport category racers available around the world. What’s astonishing here is that HP4 Race weighs just 146kg (dry) and adds 25.4kg to take on any challenge. This added weight includes 17.5-litres of fuel, tipping the scale at 171.4kg. For comparison, a motorcycle producing the same amount of power weighs around 200kg. You get KTM RC 390’s weight with a litre-class engine under the fairing.

2) Powerful Engine / Premium Inner Components

BMW HP4 Race comes with a 999cc, inline-4 engine, producing 215HP at 13,900 rpm and 120Nm at 10,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed, anti-hopping clutch with straight cut gears. What makes HP Race even more special is the use of racing camshafts, four titanium valves, and Pankl connecting rod. The engine comes with electronic racing injection and full titanium WSBK racing exhaust.

3) Engine Life / Replacement Interval

If you feel that buying this INR 85 lakh motorcycle will be the only expense, this track bike has a different story. The engine requires rebuilding (not to be confused with servicing) after a 5000km interval. The cost of rebuilding is so high that BMW recommends buying a new engine for 15,000 euros (INR 12 lakh approx). The value seen here is without import tax. The high price makes every kilometre highly expensive to ride.

4) Most Expensive Motorcycle

At INR 85 lakh, BMW HP4 Race is the most expensive motorcycle in India that you can buy from a dealership. Earlier, this record was held by Kawasaki Ninja H2R at INR 72 lakh. As both these bikes are track legal only, no extra registration charge will be applicable to both of them. In fact, you will need a towing vehicle to carry the same around different tracks or hire a professional service occasionally.

5) Missing Parts

Those who are new to track bikes, you will be amazed to see no headlight, tail light, indicators, number plates or rear mudguard on the bike. All these are not available on track bikes to keep their overall weight lower. A rear seat cowl saves additional weight by replacing the pillion seat. Above all, the frame and wheels on BMW HP4 Race are made out of carbon fibre, giving them additional strength and agility, in comparison to other track spec bikes with road legal properties.

BMW G310GS adventure motorcycle is available in India for INR 3.49 lakh (Ex-Showroom). The launch was great news for the bike enthusiasts as G310GS is the most-affordable GS series motorcycle by BMW-Motorrad. Still, everyone feels that the bike is slightly overpriced and could have been placed around INR 3 lakh. Here are 7 quick facts about BMW’s entry-level GS motorcycle.

7 Quick Facts About BMW G310GS

1) Design & Style

The design of the newest member keeps the traditional GS design language alive. It features the signature beak that the adventure bikers have accepted. There is a small windscreen and the bike also has dual-sport tires for off-road and on-road use. It fulfils all the requirements of an adventure tourer and you cannot go wrong with this choice. From a distance, one can say for certain that it is a BMW GS.

2) Engine & Gearbox

The G310 GS is powered by a 313cc single-cylinder engine that generates maximum power of 33.6 BHP @ 9500 rpm and a maximum torque of 28 NM @ 7500 rpm. The throttle response is crisp and in no time, the rider can experience the full power of the bike. The engine allows the rider to hit highway speeds with comfort and the handling is easy as well.

3) BMW-Motorrad ABS

The G310GS comes equipped with a switchable 2-channel BMW Motorrad ABS. This means that you can turn it off or on, based on your choice. This will allow the rider to back better into corners or run headlong into tracks or have some fun with wheel-spins on gravel that will send it far up in the sky.

4) Approx. Mileage & Range

With an 11 litre tank and a combined mileage of 27-30 kmpl, the G310GS is good for nearly 300-330 km between fuel stops on a mixed driving for mileage and fun. The range is smaller in comparison to typical tourer motorcycles with around 20 litres of fuel carrying capacity.

5) Riding Capability

BMW G310GS allows the rider to enjoy all terrain riding with its long travel front USD forks and rear monoshock. The use of bigger 19-inch front wheel further improves the climbing ability. Both the suspensions allow 180mm of travel while ground clearance for the G310GS is 220mm.

6) Informative Console

The bike comes with an all-digital instrument console with a speedometer, odometer, trip meter, tachometer, fuel gauge, and gear indicator. The console is similar to the one seen on G310R and looks great in size for a motorcycle of this size. It even has a digital clock.

7) Value for Money Factor

At INR 3.49 lakh, BMW-Motorrad has priced the G310GS on the higher side but still, it is a very good deal as there aren’t many options if someone wants to buy a proper entry-level adventure motorcycle in India. Also, the next option named Versys X-300 is priced INR 1.20 lakh higher.

Apart from BMW G310GS, there are 2 more options under INR 5 Lakh, the Royal Enfield Himalayan and the Kawasaki Versys X-300. In comparison to these 2, the G310GS seems to be a better buy. Here are the key specifications of G310GS.

  • Displacement: 313 cc
  • Maximum Power: 33.6 BHP @ 9500 rpm
  • Maximum Torque: 28 NM @ 7500 rpm
  • Number of Gears: 6-Speed
  • Seat Height: 835 mm
  • Ground Clearance: 220 mm
  • Kerb/Wet Weight: 169.5 kg
  • Fuel Tank Capacity: 11 litres
  • Top Speed: 143 kmph
  • Mileage: 30 kmpl
