BMW Motorrad will be launching the much awaited BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS in India tomorrow. The wait of more than 2 years will be put to rest tomorrow when the Bavarian motorcycle company launch the two affordable motorcycles in the country. The company was busy setting up its dealership network which resulted in delay for the roll out of the motorcycles. The company started taking pre-bookings for the bikes earlier last month and will be served on first-come-first serve basis. Also, BMW Motorrad has started dispatching both the bikes at the dealerships as they have been spotted at the outlets ahead of the launch.
Both the motorcycles will be powered by the same 313cc, single cylinder FI engine that will be capable of churning out 34 bhp of maximum power with peak torque of 28 Nm. It is the same unit that does duty on the TVS Apache RR 310, which is already on sale in India. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
On the safety front, both the bikes are expected to get disc brakes at both ends along with dual-channel ABS enhancing the safety and convenience aspect. The suspension duties on the both the motorcycles will be carried out by inverted forks upfront and monoshock at the rear. Yamaha R15 V3 Motorcycle Road Test Review: The Best R15 Till Date.
