BMW has finally revealed theG 310 R, a street naked that is result of the BMW-TVS collaboration. In a lot of ways, theG 310 R resembles theConcept Stunt G 310, which BMW revealed last year. It retains most of the body panels, and the five spoke alloy wheels from the concept bike and gets the same single cylinder 310cc engine which is tilted backwards. This engine delivers a peak power of 34PS at9,500rpm and peak torque of28Nm at 7,500rpm. BMW claims that this engine arrangement will make the bike nimble and handle very well.

The BMW G 310 R was shown at the 2016 Auto Expo, but there were no announcements regarding when it would hit showrooms. But when it does, the BMW G 310 R's biggest rival will be the popularKTM Duke 390.
