2019 BMW G310R Launched With New Colour Schemes. The Blue Color Has Been Discontinued
While the debut of the BMW G 310R and the G 310GS is still a few days away, BMW is upping the ante by throwing in some updates to the mix. Although these updates aren’t related to performance or handling they come in the form of looks.
It’s no secret that BMW India has kept us waiting for quite long now. Spy photos, computer generated renders, speculations and rumours, enthusiasts have gone through all of that. Its fans took a sigh of deep breath when they learned that BMW has finally revealed the launch date. The G 310R and the GS cousins will make their official India debut in the 18th of July, 2018.
For 2019, BMW is introducing a new paint shade only for the G 310R. This new paint shade is called Racing Red and as its name suggest it is a slick looking shade of gloss red colour. Not only has BMW added a new paint but unfortunately it has deduced the Strato Blue Metallic from the G 310R’s repertoire. Along with new red paint scheme, the 310R retains the old Pearl White Metallic HP Motorsport paint scheme and the Cosmic Black as well. These new changes will apply to the G 310R when it is launched in India. As stated above, the 2019 update is only limited to new paint liveries.
The BMW G 310R and G 310GS were developed by BMW Motorrad at their home turf and are manufactured here in India in collaboration with TVS Motorcycles. The 310 cousins mark BMW’s entry into the sub-500cc category. These new bikes are already on sale in the international markets. Their India launch was delayed because BMW India wanted to first widen its dealership and service network before launching bikes.
The 310 siblings are powered by the engine that also does duty in the Apache 310RR. This 313cc mill puts out 34 Hp and 28 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission and ABS is offered as standard. When launched the G 310R will lock horns with the KTM Duke 390 and Benelli TNT 300 and also with the Kawasaki Z250. Meanwhile the GS will go against the Kawasaki Versys X-300, Royal Enfield Himalayan and the yet to launch KTM Adventure 390.
