Price of the most affordable BMW has just been released!
BMW G310R UK pricelist has been revealed. At £4,290, it is the most affordable streetfighter in the competing segment containing bikes such as KTM Duke 390, Yamaha MT-03 and Kawasaki Z300. (Who would have ever though we would associate ‘most affordable’ to a BMW Moto!)
The G310R is powered by a 313cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine producing 34bhp @ 9500rpm and 20.6 ft-lbs @ 7500rpm. This mill is coupled to a 6-speed transmission. Features include ABS, a multi-function instrument cluster , USD front forks and more. The seat height is 785mm, which will appeal to shorter riders.
The bike gets a short wheelbase, rigid tubular frame and 17” wheels, keeping it nimble and agile. Overall the BMW G310R looks like a very exciting addition to the A2-licence friendly, sub-500cc streetfighter segment.
Let’s look at a BMW G310R vs KTM Duke 390 vs Yamaha MT-03 vs Kawasaki Z300 price comparison:
KTM Duke 390 (£4549)- 373.2cc, Single cylinder, 4-stroke, liquid cooled engine producing 44bhp @ 9500rpm and 26 ft-lbs @ 7250rpm of torque.
