2018 BMW G 310 R

Originally slated to be a 2017 model—we tested a pre-production example in late 2016—the new BMW G 310 R is finally being released as an 2018 model.

Manufactured in Bangalore, India, by TVS motor Company to BMW quality control specifications, the BMW G 310 R is an inexpensive sport bike with BMW design and engineering.

2018 BMW G 310 R for saleThe 313cc single is a peppy motor and the handling is impressively predictable. The bike is shod with Michelin Pilot Street radial tires, and the fixed damping suspension works impressively well.

ABS is standard, and the calipers are by Bybre (a Brembo brand), so braking is impressive. In addition to a price below $5000, the 2018 BMW G 310 R also gets 71 mpg, so thrifty riders will find BMW attractive for the first time.
