There were always a lot of rumors around a motorcycle version of the BMW G 310 R. And everyone was convinced, that the G 310 R underpinnings would spawn more models, the first of which was the G 310 GS. At the ongoing BMW Motorrad Days in Japan after much speculation, BMW Motorrad finally showcased the BMW G 310 RR concept model.
The G 310 RR-branded motorcycle has demonstrated once again that BMW is always paying great attention to clients' needs and that it was really working on a fully-faired 310. Its design looks a lot like the S 1000 RR model - with those sexy asymmetric headlamps, bulbous fuel tank, the slit-like frontal air intake and fairing gills.
The other striking detail on the bike was the underseat exhaust, which we see on the BMW G 310 R. Now it can be seen peeking out from under the pillion. The fairing, the fuel tank and almost all of the bike’s panels are made of carbon fibre. A riding position can be more relaxed. And it really does look like the S model.
If the bike goes into production, it will obviously use the same 313 cc single-cylinder engine from the G 310 R. I believe that that question and others have not yet been answered. So let’s wait for the upcoming Intermot or EICMA motorcycle shows and maybe there BMW Motorrad will shed more light on the final concept or the near-production version of the BMW G 310 RR.
