The design is that of a naked street bike, and follows typical roadster design, with a small headlight fairing, creased fuel tank design with extended fuel tank cowls loaded with body graphics.

Engine

The BMW G 310 R is powered by the same engine which is shared with its adventure sibling, the BMW G 310 GS, as well as the TVS Apache RR 310. The 313 cc, single-cylinder engine uses a reverse inclined architecture with the cylinder head slanting towards the rear of the bike. This allows for a longer swingarm to be installed while keeping the wheelbase short, and is said to ensure better stability. The 313 cc, four-valve, liquid-cooled, DOHC unit is tuned to make 34 bhp of maximum power at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. The engine is paired to a six-speed transmission. BMW Motorrad claims a top speed of 145 kmph and fuel efficiency of 30 kmpl from the BMW G310R.
