The instrument console of the upcoming BMW G 310 RR looks exactly similar to that of the TVS Apache RR 310’s unit
BMW Motorrad has released a new set of teasers for its upcoming G 310 RR revealing the sport bike’s instrument console this time. The new Beemer will go on sale on 15th July and pre-launch bookings are already underway across the country.
The console looks exactly similar to that the Apache RR 310’s unit. Even the bezel’s carbon-fibre-like texture and the tell-tale lights have been retained from the existing unit. But, it shows BMW’s logo, brand name, and tag line: Make Life A Ride at the startup screen.
Coming to the overall design, while it’s nearly the same as of that of the TVS Apache RR 310, the front cowl and visor get mild revisions. Further the bike has been wrapped with BMW’s trademark Light White/Racing Blue Metallic/Racing Red livery.
The triangle shaped recess between the 2 head lamps on the Apache has been removed and, in its place, there seems to be something like a fake air intake system or a piano black element giving the upcoming bike a similar look to that of the Triumph Daytona.
Despite being a single cylinder with a rather small 312 cc engine, TVS Apache RR 310 has some serious numbers to boast. It can hit 60 km/hr in 2.93 seconds while ton comes in 7.17 seconds. The bike can hit genuine a top speed of 166 km/hr.
TVS has loaded the flagship Apache with some serious tech. The 5-inch colour TFT screen gets connected features including race telemetry. Further, the bike sports dual-channel ABS, 3 ride modes with electronic throttle control, slipper clutch, Michelin Road 5 tires, etc.
Currently, TVS Apache RR 310 and BMW’s naked, the G 310R, command a price tag of Rs. 2.65 lakhs while BMW’s adventure bike, the G 310 GS, comes at a premium of Rs. 3.05 lakhs. So, the upcoming bike will be launched at a price tag of around Rs. 3-3.2 lakhs (all prices, ex-showroom).
Customers can book the bike at all BMW Motorrad authorised dealerships or via online by visiting www.bmwmotorradg310rr.com. Post launch, deliveries will be done on a first-come-first-served basis, the company said in a statement.
For ease of ownership, BMW India Financial Services is offering a complete package that includes zero down payment, low monthly payments starting at Rs. 3999/-, and the option to fund insurance and accessories.
When launched, the BMW G 310 RR will compete against the likes of the recently launched 2022 KTM RC 390, 2022 Kawasaki Ninja 300, and Royal Enfield Continental GT 650.
