BMW has been one of the leading auto-moto giants over the past century, and for its 100th year of existence, this industry has prepared an amazing gift for all of their followers around the globe.
In the second half of 2016, German titan will present the world with its brand new BMW G 310 R motorcycle, its first motorcycle under 500cc.
This masterpiece is going to be different from any other BMW bike ever made. Thing is that BMW always made motorcycles that had over 500cc, and that is just too strong for some bikers out there. So, after many years the German automaker decided to take it down a notch and create a little lesser wild machine.
Since they didn’t have any similar models in their history, this company had to start from a clean slate to create this crotch rocket. BMW decided to do something little different this time, so they created a vehicle that is perfectly balanced for two types of riding: Riding through town and free ride on the open road. To be able to do this, they created a slightly smaller and a completely newly developed 313cc liquid-cooled, single cylinder engine. With four valves and two overhead camshafts together this motor has electronic fuel injection, and it’s able to produce up to 34 horsepower (25 kW) at 9,500 rpm. The maximum torque of this engine is 21 ft-lb (28 Nm).
BMW G 310 R can develop a top speed of 90 mph(145km/h) and it possesses top-notch braking system like all BMW motorcycles. This system has a 2-channels ABS . On the front wheel, a single-disc brake with the diameter of 300 millimetres and on the back wheel it has a 240-millimetre brake disc. Both of these channels ensure powerful and stable deceleration.
Regarding the design, BMW G 310 R is created to look sporty and powerful, without losing well-known comfort that every BMW vehicle provides. This stunning motorcycle will hit the market somewhere in the middle of 2016, so the price hasn’t been estimated just yet. At the end of the day, this bike is an ideal choice for every biker out there. It doesn’t matter if you live in a town, big city or somewhere in the countryside, this thing of beauty will get you anywhere quickly, safely and with style. [via]
