In addition, the list of accessories for the G 310 R has also been revealed for the overseas markets.
As per the list, BMW Motorrad will be offering a rear rack with two top case options – a 29-litre case and 30-litre case finished in granite metallic grey.

Given the fact that the G 310 R is aimed at touring enthusiasts, the accessories seem apt.

The BMW G 310 R is eyeing the market dominated by the KTM Duke 390 and draws power from a 313cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine tuned to produce 34bhp of power at 9500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7500rpm. The motor is paired to a 6-speed gearbox, while dual-channel ABS is offered as standard. India could get the safety feature as optional in a bid to keep a low asking price.
BMW Motorrad states that the G 310 R has a top speed of 145 kmph on the G 310 R and a fuel efficiency of around 30.3 kmpl. Built on a tubular steel frame, the smallest BMW uses 41mm USD front forks and a monoshock setup at the rear.
