BMW has finally unveiled the G 310 R, a motorcycle affordable to the masses. The smallest-capacity motorcycle on offer by BMW Motorrad, the G 310 R is a compact street bike.

The four-valve head plays host to dual overhead camshafts and a fuel injection system. The short stroke BMW engine is said to be quick-revving in character, revving up to 10,500rpm and making 33.6bhp at 9,000rpm.

The provision of a counter-balancer is expected to deliver high levels of smoothness and refinement. Peak torque of 2.9kgm kicks in at 7,500 rpm. BMW claims a top speed of 145kph. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox and a cable-fed clutch.

The bike’s frame is made of tubular steel, with an alloy swing-arm at the rear. The suspension set-up consists of upside-down telescopic fork at the front and an adjustable monoshock at the rear.

17-inch wheels are standard on the front and the rear, stopped by brakes that are steel-braided-hose controlled. The front gets a 300mm rotor-equipped radial-mounted disc, bitten by four-piston callipers, while the rear gets a 240mm disc clamped on by two-piston callipers. A twin-channel ABS system comes standard with the bike.
