As per the list, BMW Motorrad will be offering a rear rack with two top case options – a 29-litre case and 30-litre case finished in granite metallic grey. Furthermore, you get an inner bag for the top case; two seat options – a softer seat and a lower seat; centre stand, LED turn indicators and a 12-volt socket. Given the fact that the G 310 R is aimed at touring enthusiasts, the accessories seem apt. It is likely that most of these accessories will be offered in India as well and will be sold via BMW Motorrad dealerships that are expected to be operational in metros by October this year.
The BMW G 310 R is eyeing the market dominated by the KTM Duke 390 and draws power from a 313cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine tuned to produce 34bhp of power at 9500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7500rpm. The motor is paired to a 6-speed gearbox, while dual-channel ABS is offered as standard. India could get the safety feature as optional in a bid to keep a low asking price.
Styling similar to the S 1000 R, upside-down forks on the front, the biggest brakes, widest rear tyre and comprehensive instrumentation are all certain to make the bike very appealing to buyers.
