Post BMW G310RR Supersport

BMW Motorrad will debut nine new motorcycles during this new bike season, and one of the machines we are expecting is the BMW G310RR supersport. Sharing a platform with the TVS Apache RR 310, this made in India small-displacement is built off the BMW G310R street bike, and hopes to take on the likes of the Honda CBR300R, Kawasaki Ninja 400, KTM RC390, etc.

Today, we bring you what could be the first photos of the 2019 BMW G310RR. First spotted by our friends at Oliepeil, the BMW G310RR on display at the BMW Motorrad Days in Japan is dripping in carbon fiber, has G310RR blast on its fairings, and is looking the part in its race bike form.

Whether this is a tarted up G310R or the genuine article is hard to say, and any argument would be one of semantics when you really think about it what is a G310RR but not a fully-faired G310R, after all? The purpose of the display though is to showcase the carbon fiber work that BMW is producing, both in-house and with its technical partners.

This has been a big point of pride for the German brand, and this isnt the first time that we have seen the Bavarians using their two-wheeled program to showcase the investments they are making in this space.

Complete with faux headlights, the BMW G3100RR on display in Japan looks like it is ready for the World Supersport 300 Championship, where it will surely be raced once it debuts.

It is hard to tell in the photos how much of this machine shares itself with its TVS cousin, though there are obvious similarities in the wheels and suspension pieces. However, the bodywork looks like a direct inspiration from the BMW S1000RR, complete with the gilled side fairings, and subtle nose spoiler.

It looks great, but I have to wonder how much all that carbon fiber stuff will cost. Hopefully it has significantly more power, but I don't know how much more BMW would want to squeeze out of the engine. Flashy looks, stickier tires(?) and a sportier (adjustable?) suspension will appeal to a number people nonetheless, even if it costs a lot more than a 310 R and doesn't make more power.

Great! I already loved the TVR Apache, and I was hoping for this BMW since early 2018.

Meanwhile, some six months later, I was dreaming of an engine update, like an G400R.

But I can not wait to see the G310RR at the dealer. Maybe I will change my G310R for this bike.

Sharp looking but I wonder if its just a little too much carbon fiber regardless whether it's real or faux.

Production bike will not have the carbon. Just a show bike.

Would be nice as a 400. Would give KTM RC390 a good run. It would still lose to the Kawasaki 400 as that has 2 cylinders and you are not going to beat that with a single. Same for the 2 cylinder Yamaha R3

My KTM RC390 will go maybe 106mph. The old Kawasaki 300 would do 115mph.

I would get it over the Honda 300 but I think the price is going to be closer to the Kawasaki 400 and KTM RC390.

It would compete well against Honda 300, and Hyosung GD250R (100mph) and probably edge them out in a race.

2018 BMW G310GS White
2017 Hyosung GD250R Black/Gray
2016 KTM RC390
2014 Kawasaki Ninja 300 SE (sold)
2008 Hyosung GT250R (crashed)
199x Kawasaki Ninja 250 (engine failure)

I would agree with you, just a show bike. While carbon fiber production costs has dropped considerably (I'm thinking pre-preg) it doesn't get around the fact that CF is still more brittle and less abrasion resistant and takes longer to produce than injection type molding plastics. The production time is probably the biggest factor for any large scale manufacturing. Personally, I wish more manufacturers still employed old geezers in greasy coveralls beating out aluminium panels for their body parts and fairings so I am obviously a bit touched in the head.
