Written by Ravi Kapoor

Forward of its July 15 launch, we let you know all we all know concerning the upcoming absolutely faired BMW sportbike.

BMW Motorrad India has been teasing its upcoming Apache RR310-based sportbike, and

the newest info from the producer confirms that it’ll carry the G 310 RR

nametag. The corporate has additionally introduced that bookings are open for the upcoming


BMW G 310 RR: styling tweaks

Whereas the general silhouette of the G 310 RR is similar to its Indian cousin, the TVS

Apache RR 310, there are just a few delicate variations. The visor on the Bavarian spinoff

appears to be barely completely different, and the cuts and creases across the headlight are one thing

we don’t see on the Apache. The headlights themselves additionally appear to have slight variations

in comparison with the TVS models.

There are two color choices, to our data. A minimalistic all-black possibility and a

conventional BMW HP-liveried one with pink and blue accents over a white base. The latter additionally

has the phrase ‘Race’ written after its title, on the facet fairings, and will maybe be a

extra extremely specced variant. We’ll know extra as soon as the bike is launched.

BMW G 310 RR: {hardware} variations

Many of the cycle components are anticipated to stay unchanged in comparison with the Apache RR310,

however there are some which will probably be completely different.

First up is the entrance disc brake. In a teaser picture launched by BMW, we are able to clearly see the

Apache’s petal disc changed by a traditional rotor on the Beemer. Distinction is design

apart, the dimensions of the discs themselves might be going to stay unchanged – 300mm at

the entrance and 240mm on the rear.

One other picture reveals adjusters on prime of the entrance fork, hinting that the BMW G 310RR will

include adjustable entrance suspension as provided optionally on the Apache RR310 BTO

(Constructed To Order).

One change that’s not fairly welcome is the tyres, because the BMW might be seen sporting

Michelin Pilot Road tyres, whereas the Apache comes with the extraordinarily spectacular Michelin

Highway 5s. These Pilot Streets are the identical because the one provided on the G 310R – the road

bare model of the BMW – and we’ve discovered them to be missing when it comes to grip and really feel.

BMW G 310 RR: what stays the identical?

Quite a bit, really. The 312.2cc, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine is predicted to be

carried over in the identical state of tune – 34hp at 9,700rpm and 27.3Nm of torque at

7,700rpm. The chassis is predicted to stay unchanged as nicely.

The forged alloy wheels, gasoline tank, rider in addition to pillion seats, upswept exhaust system, tail-

gentle and even the rear seize rail appear to be carried over from the TVS Apache RR310.

BMW G 310 RR: the underside line

The BMW G 310R and the TVS Apache RR 310 each carry an equivalent price ticket of Rs 2.65

lakh. Their rival is the considerably extra highly effective, and just lately launched, KTM RC 390,

which carries a price ticket of Rs 3.14 lakh. It’s sure that the G 310 RR will probably be extra

costly than its bare sibling, however, on the identical time, it’s unlikely to sit down too near the

KTM, and can almost certainly be priced underneath the Rs Three lakh mark.

There’s a risk that the bike might be provided in two variants – a base variant with non-

adjustable suspension and a Race model with adjustability at each ends.

In a price-conscious market like ours, even probably the most well-rounded merchandise can battle due

to an unreasonable price ticket (Honda CB300R, we’re taking a look at you). So, it will likely be very

fascinating to see the place the brand new BMW sits and the way it interacts with the Apache.

All costs listed are ex-showroom, Delhi
