BMW G 310 RR – Design
Thanks to a series of teasers, it is safe to guess that the upcoming motorcycle from the Bavarian brand will look like the TVS Apache RR 310 for the most part. It is assumed to be just a rebadged iteration of the flagship Apache. However, BMW will be offering it in different paint schemes. The company’s signature white paint scheme with the red and blue ‘M’ style graphics is likely to make the BMW’s iteration look different from the TVS’ offering.
BMW G 310 RR – Engine & gearbox
Much like the design, the powertrain and drivetrain of the BMW G 310 RR will come from the same bin as the TVS Apache RR 310. A single-cylinder motor displacing 313 cubic centimetres will be developing a rated power output of 33.5 bhp and 28 Nm here. It will come mated to a 6-speed gearbox and a slipper clutch with assist functionality.
