BMW Motorrad recently unveiled its first 500cc motorcycle called the BMW G 310 R. This bike is launched globally and in India BMW has collaborated with TVS motors for better sales. India has a high demand for bikes that are fast and look classy, and with the brand value that BMW brings to the table, there’s no question that the demand for this bike will be high in India. The bike is expected to hit stores soon and people in India are very keen on checking out what this bike has to offer.
The BMW G 310 R is the first ever 500 CC bike with a single cylinder that BMW has launched. While the technology, design and development were handled by the Germans, it will be sold in India in partnership with TVS. The bikes that will be sold in India will be manufactured here under strict inspection and quality standards that BMW requires. Since this bike is not being imported and is actually being manufactured in India, it will reduce the cost and this will increase the scope of buyers in the market.
The BMW G310 R Non ABS version is expected to be priced between Rs. 2 lakhs and Rs. 2.20 Lakhs and the ABS version is expected to cost between Rs. 2.50 Lakhs and Rs. 2.75 Lakhs.

It will have a tubular frame which will deliver immense strength so the bike can travel fast and will ensure the bike is lightweight for better performance and handling. The BMW G310R will be the best lightweight 500 cc bike in its class which will also come with a wheelbase of 1347mm. BMW has taken special care of the ergonomics of the G310R and features a comfortable single seat rather than a split seat. The seat height is also lower making it convenient to be ridden with ease by people with short height.
