The BMW G 310 RR will go on sale on a 'first come, first serve' basis, which hints at the bike's limited availability at the launch.
BMW Motorrad India has been busy teasing its upcoming motorcycle, an Apache RR 310-based sports bike. In fact, we were the first ones to break the news before BMW Motorrad India even came out with the first teaser. Now, bookings for the G 310 RR are officially open across the brand's dealerships and online. Yes, this is the name that BMW is going for – something that wasn't very difficult to figure out.
As per BMW's nomenclature, the first letter denotes the number of cylinders powering the bike. In this case, G points to a single-cylinder engine. Of course, 310 refers to the engine displacement. The RR suffix signifies that it's a fully-faired sports bike.
Based on the teaser images, we expect the G 310 RR to feature signature BMW styling, which could be borrowed from the top dog of the range, the S 1000 RR. However, the overall silhouette and most of the body panels are expected to be identical to those of the Apache RR 310. In the lead image, we see 'Race' mentioned on the side shield. It could probably refer to the colour scheme or to a separate Race Edition of the bike. These details are yet to be confirmed.
An important change spotted on the G 310 RR is a conventional brake disc at the front, instead of a petal-type rotor seen on the Apache RR 310. Hopefully, we'll get to spot more of these changes in forthcoming teasers.
Apart from announcing the opening of bookings, BMW Motorrad India has also confirmed that the bike will be launched on 15th July. We'll get to ride it shortly afterwards, so do watch out for our first-ride impressions.
