BMW Motorrad India launched the first-ever BMW G 310 RR in the domestic market. India is the first global market to see the launch of the third member of the BMW 310 model series which includes the G310 R and G310 GS.
The BMW G 310 RR has been jointly developed by BMW Motorrad and TVS Motor Company and is locally produced in India along with the BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS by TVS Motor at its Hosur factory.
The G 310 RR, which essentially is the rebadged TVS Apache RR310 with some key differences, will be the entry point to the BMW Motorrad sport bikes family. While the G310 RR is priced at Rs 285,000, the G 310 RR Style Sport costs Rs 299,000 (ex-showroom). Both motorcycles have gone on sale at BMW Motorrad India dealerships from today onwards.
According to Markus Mueller-Zambre, Head of Region Asia, China, Pacific & Africa at BMW Motorrad said, “In just under five years, the G310 R and G310 GS have become immensely popular and are in high demand all over the world. The introduction of a third member further diversifies the G 310 range with R – a roadster, GS – an adventure bike and now the first-ever BMW G 310 RR - a true road racing sports bike. The BMW G 310 RR’s performance, agility, precision and raring-to-go flair reveals racing attitude. We are glad to launch it first in India which is one of the fastest growing markets for BMW Motorrad.”
Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India said, “The first-ever BMW G 310 RR is the sportiest and most desirable sports bike in the sub-500 class. This bike proudly inherits the original road racing genes that have fascinated sports bike enthusiasts with unlimited adrenaline rush on tarmac. With the combination of a stunning superbike design and modern technology, it is an ultimate riding machine - your best companion on racetracks and city roads alike.”
The BMW G310 RR has been launched in two colours – standard Black storm metallic paintwork and Style Sport in Light White Uni, Racing Blue Metallic and Racing Red Uni colours.
