BMW-Motorrad has introduced a Bluetooth communication system for the riders that can be installed directly onto the helmets in order to provide communication against a closed group of riders. The Bluetooth device can be installed on every category of the BMW helmets offered by the brand in addition to the other brand’s helmets.

It is one of the most useful devices launched by the brand for keeping the communication alive in a group of riders that are maximum 300 metres apart. The communication device allows a maximum of 6 riders to establish communication while riding.

BMW-Motorrad has also introduced an application that allows the riders to connect via the Bluetooth device up to a distance of 2 kilometres if the weather conditions are appropriate. The public mode on the connecting device allows the riders to connect with more than 6 other riders on along the way.

In addition to establishing a communication link between the riders, the Bluetooth device allows the rider to attend phone calls, listen to the music as well as listen to the navigation updates. The device can be mounted on the left side of the helmet while the high-quality material used to make up the device further allows it to be UV resistant. The Bluetooth device offered by BMW-Motorrad is waterproof and can be used in harsh weather conditions as well.

The Bluetooth communication system gets a combination of buttons that are used to connect it to the intercom while the volume up and down buttons helps manage the music and communication. The device packs a battery of 560mAh that offers an operation time of a maximum of 8 hours in a single charge.

The Bluetooth module features automatic noise suppression, clear music playback as well as high speech quality for clear audio operations. BMW is yet to confirm the official price tag of the Bluetooth device though, the product is already listed on a few online stores for $199 (INR 13,800).

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).

BMW’s entry-level models, the G310R and the G310GS, are the best-selling bikes of the brand in the Indian market. To attract more customers and boost sales figures, BMW has stepped up and has introduced new stylish and sporty paint schemes for the two bikes. By replacing its old black colour the G310R streetfighter is now available in an updated Cosmic Black colour whereas the G310GS adventure tourer has received a new Strato Blue metallic paint scheme replacing the Racing Red colour.

The new Cosmic Black colour on G310R covers the entire bike along with a set of new decals on the front fender, radiator cover, and rear fairing to give the motorcycle a renewed sporty look. Unlike the existing GS range, the ‘GS’ logo on the fuel tank of G310GS now also gets a neon yellow shade. The blue paint on the G310GS is only visible on the front beak and on the top of the fuel tank. The new colours are expected to launch in India in the coming weeks.

BMW entered the electric scooter market in 2014 with BMW C Evolution. The electric maxi-scooter has one of the most unique designs that combine sustainability, agility and comfort, all at their best. Though the brand didn’t look much into the future of the electric vehicles at that time, things look positive with the unveiling of the Vision DC Roadster concept at BMW’s NextGen event in Munich, Germany.

BMW has revolutionized the electric and hybrid car markets with the introduction of its i-series though, the brand is yet to create history in the electric motorcycle segment. The central block of the BMW Vision DC Roadster is based on the design language of the BMW Boxer Twin. Coming to the core, the twin cylinder engine has been replaced by a battery box which is embedded in between the cooling elements on either side, offering the electric motorcycle their signature Boxer profile.

Though there is no gas tank at the centre, the design of the arches does offer it a faux gas chamber look. The use of several intricate arches on the aluminium and carbon fibre frame has been made to give the Vision DC Roadster a similar profile with the Boxer and at the same time keeping the weight low.

A low maintenance shaft-drive has been used to draw power at the back while the upward-floating saddle gives the bike an aerodynamic stance with an overall edge look pointing forward. The premium stance has been kept alive with the use of all-LED headlight and tail-light. In addition to this, the brand has also introduced the concept of smart gear for the same. The gear has been enthused with intricate lighting, hidden protectors and it also gets connectivity traits.

The brand has also unveiled the concept of a magnetic rucksack that can be easily snapped to the vest without having to move several limbs. Though the BMW Vision DC Roadster concept is just an imagination, it is safe to say the brand is looking ahead in the game when it comes to revolutionizing the electric motorcycle market.

Apache RR 310 vs BMW G310R (Detailed Comparison): BMW-Motorrad launched the much-awaited G310R in India last year for INR 2.99 lakh. The motorcycle is powered by a 313cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine, producing 34 HP and 28 Nm of torque. On the other hand, Apache RR 310 produces the same horsepower but, gets a reduction in torque by 0.7 Nm.

The full faired Apache is heavier by 11kg, all thanks to added equipment and fairing on the motorcycle. BMW G310R comes with a different instrument console and also brings standard handlebar and seating into action. Apache RR 310 comes with clip-on handlebar and split seat for a sportier feel. TVS Motor recently upgraded the sportbike with a race-tuned slipper clutch and the brand also launched a new gloss black colour known as ‘Phantom Black’. The updated model of RR 310 is available for INR 2.27 lakh (ex-showroom).

Both the bikes are available with an identical frame, fuel tank, brakes, and suspension components. TVS offers bi-LED headlights on the Apache, making it more practical in comparison to the halogen headlight on the G310R. Apache RR 310 brings better top speed, lower 0-100 kph number and similar mileage figure to the BMW roadster. Both the bikes are available with 110mm front and 150mm rear tires, wrapped around similar alloy wheel design. They even share the exhaust with each other. TVS Apache RR 310 is a far better option if buyers are not concerned about the brand value associated with their motorcycle, saving a lot of money and still bringing more fun into your life.

BMW HP4 Race is now available in India with a price tag of INR 86.70 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 & 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 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 86.70 lakh motorcycle would 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 in India

At INR 86.70 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.

New BMW S1000RR is all set to launch in India on June 27, 2019. The motorcycle is available with class-leading technology, lightweight body, and power that can bring a big smile on the rider’s face. The biggest visual change to the motorcycle’s design is the front slim LED headlamps, replacing the old asymmetrical units from the 2018 variant.

The aluminium chassis is great and overall body dimensions can be called sleek for sure with the 2019 year update. The motorcycle features a coloured TFT instrument console with navigation and Bluetooth support. The safety features include BMW Motorrad Race ABS, dynamic traction control, and hill start assist.

It feels more like the track-spec HP4 race with its updated design while performance part brings 207 HP in the standard tune. The maximum torque is 113 Nm, out of which more than 100 Nm is available from 5,500 rpm. The peak value is achieved at 11,000 rpm for the torque and 13,500 rpm for the power.

New BMW S1000RR comes with a top speed of 299 kph, electronically limited like most other litre-class motorcycles with standard configurations. BMW ShiftCam technology and titanium valves for the engine further help the motorcycle stay efficient at high rpm levels.

BMW claims 15.6 kmpl of mileage for the motorcycle though achieving this value may not be possible on the track at all. 2019 BMW S1000RR comes with 45mm USD front forks, 1441mm of compact wheelbase and 190/55-ZR17 rear tire.

The braking duties are handled by 320mm dual discs at the front and 220mm single disc at the rear. The motorcycle measures 2073mm in length, 848mm in width and 1151mm in height. The standard weight tips the scale at 197 kg while those buying the M Package will get the motorcycle with a lowered 193.5kg of wet weight.
