Video: BMW G310R alongside KTM Duke 390, Yamaha MT-03

 The video below, shot in Russia by HM Channel, shows the BMW G310R alongside the KTM Duke 390 and the Yamaha MT-03, two of the key rivals of the G310R. The video allows for an enthusiast to listen to the G310R’s exhaust, and watch its acceleration in comparison to its rivals.

According to a recent report, the BMW G310R will not launch in India this calendar year, rather towards the end of this financial year (February-March 2017). However, TVS Motor, the joint venture partner responsible for manufacturing the motorcycle, will begin exports of the G310R from its plant in Hosur, Tamil Nadu this year. Initial markets include European countries including BMW Motorrad’s home market in Germany.

Among the lot, the BMW G310R sports the smallest engine: a 313 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled unit that develops 34 PS at 9,500 and a peak torque of 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm. The KTM relies on a 375 cc single-cylinder unit while the Yamaha is powered by a 321 cc parallel-twin.

The BMW G310R is equipped with a 6-speed gearbox, as is the competition. The G310R also gets disc brakes at both ends and ABS as standard. According to the company, the naked street-fighter has a top-speed of 143 km/h with a kerb weight of 158.5 kg.
