BMW has released pricing for the single cylinder BMW G 310 R that arrives in October / November.
The new bike will be priced at just $5,790 plus on-road costs, and BMW hopes it will make the company very competitive in the Australian 300 cc learner market.
That market is one of the most competitive in the country, and is split between sports bikes like the very popular Kawasaki Ninja 300 and a range of naked streetfighter styled machines.
BMW are labelling the naked G 310 R as a roadster.
BMW Motorrad General Manager, Andreas Lundgren, spoke about the imminent arrival of the G 310 R, saying “The new G 310 R is an exciting development for BMW Motorrad.”
“It is an agile motorcycle and although smaller in size and capacity, it has the dynamic performance and technical innovation that are intrinsic qualities of the marque. The G 310 R will open up the brand to a whole new audience.”
The G 310R engine develops 25 kW and 28 Nm and the bike weighs just 158 kg suggesting it will be a well performing machine, and BMW has also added some significant features to set this bike apart from its competition.
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.
