BMW G310R Sportbike Is Coming.


(no the header image is not the actual bike)

It doesn't take much to connect the dots.

Word broke that BMW's Indian partner TVS would debut their own fully faired version of the BMW G310R next month at Auto Expo 2016.

What does that mean for BMW though?

First things first. TVS is only a manufacturing partner, all engineering responsibilities fall firmly to BMW. It is BMW developing this bike for TVS and not vice versa.

Couple that with the fact that BMW said some time ago that the G310R platform would spawn a full suite of models including ADV and sporty stylings. It's not hard to imagine that the bike codenamed U69 is a fully faired BMW G310R in waiting.

A sportier option would give BMW a competent machine to fight the like of the Yamaha R3, Honda CBR300R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the KTM RC390.

Is it really going to be the g310r sport? The fully faired bike will be sold by TVS with their own badge in India and other Asian countries so it can't really be considered a BMW bike even if they designed it.

BMW rival to the Ninja 300, RC390 will be a good move, one that should do well for them, especially with bringing something that will come closer to the Yamaha and RC in performance.

you're not reading very well then. The article doesn't say that the TVS bike will be a BMW. It says that:

1) BMW developed the bike for TVS
2) BMW said they will sell G310 in all kinds of derivatives
3) so logic says expect the BMW developed for TVS to be become a BMW shortly

better?

Guess I was just stuck on this bit from International Business Times:
Quote:
The U69 in production avatar will be a product of TVS
I got it now.

That looks ridiculous, if it comes to market looking like that it'll be one of the best looking (IMO) on the market although it will come at a cost, a cost still worth it.

Granted it's only a rendering but the fairing looks great and it looks wider than the G310R, makes it looks like a higher cc bike.

Indeed, noticed that a trend in the industry, more big bike cues being brought down to smaller CC bikes. Seeing this from brands offering cheap bikes all the way up to those that break just above the $10k range.
