2016 BMW G310R Revealed

2016 BMW G310R Revealed



A little more than a month after showing a stunt-influenced concept, BMW revealed the full production version of its entry-level G310R roadster. Produced with help from India’s TVS Motor Company, the G310R is BMW’s lowest displacement motorcycle and its first roadster under 500cc.

The BMW G310R shares some styling cues with the S1000R rather the more traditional-looking R1200R roadster. The radiator shroud has a similar shape as the S1000R’s on the left side, and a matching design on the right instead of the RR-style gills on the S1000. BMW also stayed away from its usual asymmetric aesthetic with the single headlight.

BMW says the G310R is capable of running on the diverse fuel qualities but their press package states premium unleaded (95 RON). Which one is right?

Actually the press kit makes no specific mention of RON 95...

I found it on this press package: file:///C:/Users/kmak/Downloads/EN_B...ad_G_310_R.pdf

Compression/fuel 10.6:1 / premium unleaded (95 RON

Is it the wrong one?

RON is apparently different from Octane, and I read 95 RON converts to 91 Octane.

So it's a big above regular which is good. Was worried that I won't be able to access the necessary fuel.
Couldn't open your PDF but I did find it here: https://www.press.bmwgroup.com/globa...em=node__10397

I just clicked on the English version of the press package.

What will happen to the engine fi you run it on fuel with a lower octane number than the one suggested?

Greater wear on the engine and worse fuel economy.

There's also no point in buying fuel with higher octane than recommended unless it's a sport performance bike for moto racing. There's more detonation inhibitor compounds in higher octane rating of gasoline that the g310r wasn't designed to run on so you'll be wasting money and maybe even reduce it's performance marginally.
