We’ve known for a while that BMW Motorrad has been working on bringing us the more “performance-oriented” version of its G 310 R series bike. Today, the Bavarian manufacturer has finally launched the highly-anticipated G 310 RR in two trims – the Standard variant priced at Rs 2.85 lakh and the ‘Style Sport’ variant which comes with a price tag of Rs 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom). 

While the former comes finished in a black paint scheme, the latter is wrapped in BMW’s signature white, red and blue colours. The supersport (std) carries a premium of around Rs 25,000 over the TVS Apache RR 310, which essentially packs the same internal as the BMW offering. So, what new features or specs do you get here? Apart from the BMW badging, there are not a lot of things to talk about, frankly. For starters, the G 310 RR while sporting the same design silhouette gets completely different livery and paint options. 

Other changes include the addition of Michelin Pilot Street tyres, instead of Michelin Road 5 tyres seen on the Apache. In addition, the petal discs seen on the RR 310 have also been replaced by the unit seen on the G 310 R and the G 310 GS. 

But that’s where the changes end. In a nutshell, the G 310 RR gets the same engine, frame, suspension and braking setup as the TVS Apache RR 310. This includes the 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine which makes 34PS of power and 27.3Nm of torque. Even the riding modes – Track, Sport, Urban and Rain, have been left unchanged.

The G 310 RR is suspended on the same trellis frame as the RR 310, with USD forks at the front and a mono-shock unit at the rear. BMW isn’t even offering the option of adjusting your suspension setup, which is available on the Apache.
