BMW Motorrad announced in 2013 that they were collaborating with TVS Motor Company for production of series of sub-500 cc bikes. These bikes were targeted for markets with a prominence of lower-cc bikes and to be released as entry-level bikes. This was the first time that BMW Motorrad ventured into developing the sub-500 cc bikes.
BMW KO3 was the code name given to the first collaboration product of TVS-BMW. It was a test bike which was developed in India and sent to Germany for further testing and modifications.
In October 2015 in Brazil, the BMW G310 Stunt was the first concept bike unveiled by BMW Motorrad. The commercial version of the concept was officially unveiled by BMW Motorrad the next month, at EICMA 2015 in Milan, Italy, and was shown in India at the 13th Auto Expo 2016. The bike was commercially released in India on July 18th.
Like the KTM 390 series, which is designed in Europe by Austrian brand KTM and made in India in a partnership with Bajaj Auto, the G310 R is marketed in different segments in different countries. The Indian website Rushlane, based on a BMW promotional video, calls the G310 R “not an entry-level motorcycle but a premium lightweight and compact roadster”, while the US magazine Cycle World describes the same bike as “entry-level” and “a compact city-type roadster”.
BMW G310 R was developed with an intent to increase BMW’s presence in global markets. It is the first-ever BMW bike not to be manufactured in Europe. The design of the bike was engineered by BMW in Munich, Germany, and is built and assembled at TVS Motor Company’s Hosur plant in Indian State of Tamil Nadu.
