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 isn’t 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.
Stay tuned, as Asphalt & Rubber will come to you live from both events.
