First under 500cc BMW road bike?

Nothing to do with the G310,but i keep seeing references to the G310,being BMW's first under 500cc road bike(magazines etc)but i'm sure a mate of mine had a 450R?,back in the 70's,of course i could be wrong again & the 450R was actually over 500cc,anyone know?

Most people, including publications, may not remember older models like the 1980 BMW R450 or they could have been born after its time. I definitely didn't know about it until now.

Well,lets see,that's 37years old,i'm quite a bit more than double that age & there are quite a few of us oldies around,the ploiticians are moaning about us bankrupting the NHS,all the time
But seriously some of the publications i've read this "fact" stated in,should know better,Research?.
I know it's not important but sometimes it's nice proving some of these smart a**e reporters wrong

You'd be surprised at the amount of times these "journalists" will report wrong information. Either one, they've read it somewhere else and they just re-state it, or two, they don't know better because they haven't seen anything recently and go based off of that instead of doing the appropriate research.

It does feel good to know that you know they're wrong haha!

And this is why forums are so great. We have a variety of riders to learn from or bounce ideas off of instead of just taking publications as fact. That 1980 BMW R450 looks like it was one amazing cruiser for long cross country rides. But mad does that engine look heavy.

Isn't cm3 to cc one to one? Both stands for cubic centimeters as far as I know and measure the volume of the cylinders in a motorcycle's engine. What are you trying to convert?
