The BMW G 310 RR is fitted with a water-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke 313-cc engine with electronic fuel injection. The engine achieves a maximum power of 25kW at 9,700 rpm as well as maximum torque of 27.3 NM at 7,700 rpm. The motorcycle accelerates from 0 – 60 km/hr in just 2.9 seconds. The new engine will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox and it will get ride-by-wire throttle as well as an assist & slipper clutch.
The bike gets anti-hopping clutch with self-reinforcement which the company claims reduces engine braking and significantly increases riding safety – especially during braking manoeuvres with simultaneous downshifts. It also offers reduced operating force at clutch lever.
The BMW 310 RR is fitted with four modes as standard – Track, Urban, Rain and Sport. The Track mode is focussed from acceleration to braking where the ABS is adjusted for late braking into bends.
Markus Mueller-Zambre, Head of Region Asia, China, Pacific & Africa at BMW Motorrad said, “In just under five years, the G 310 Rand G 310 GS have
become immensely popular and are in high demand all over the world. The introduction of a third member further diversifies the G 310 range with R- a
roadster, GS – an adventure bike and now the first-ever BMW G 310 RR-a true road racing sports bike. The BMW G 310 RR’s performance, agility,
precision and raring-to-go flair reveals racing attitude. We are glad to launch it first in India which is one of the fastest growing markets for BMW Motorrad.”
