BMW announce G310R price

1 of 1

BMW have confirmed that their all-new G310R will be in dealers this October, with prices starting at £4290.

The 313cc single-cylinder engine is the smallest to be produced by BMW since the R24 in 1948 and is aimed at helping BMW tap into the new rider and urban markets, and also the booming sub-500cc motorcycle markets in Asia and South America.

The G310R has been designed by BMW in Munich but will be built in India’s TVS production facility, in an attempt to boost the company’s global market share. BMW have put a lot of effort into making sure that the bikes meet the German manufacturer’s quality standards, with all of the tooling and equipment being made in Germany before being shipped to India.


The design, directly influenced by its bigger S1000R and R1200R brothers, looks larger than its 313cc capacity suggests. The engine too, which is all new, has been developed with technology used in the S1000RR and is designed to have a lower centre of gravity to allow for a longer swingarm that will give more stable handling. 

The bike will also get an inverted fork, ABS, and weighs in at 158.5kg wet. Power is a claimed 34bhp at 9500rpm with 20.6ftlb of torque at 7500rpm. The seat height is 785mm, so it will be easier for shorter riders to reach the floor. Like most BMWs, there will also be a extensive options available to further customise the bike.

Coming in at £4290, the G310R will be the cheapest of the current 300cc crop of roadsters, being £209 cheaper than Yamaha’s MT-03 and £59 than the Kawasaki Z300.
