BMW started off as an aircraft manufacturer in the early 20th century. Post World War I, BMW was prohibited from manufacturing aircraft engines, so it set its sights on the automotive world. The first BMW motorcycle rolled off the production line in 1923. Christened ‘R32’, this model became the base for future BMW models for a long time.
BMW has been associated with a number of innovations in the automotive world. Technologies like telescopic forks, hydraulic damping and straight-travel rear-wheel suspension were first used by BMW. Over the years, BMW has also been actively involved in various disciplines of motorsports including superbike racing, road racing and endurance rallies.
BMW’s current range consists of a wide variety of motorcycles, stretching from superbikes to naked roadsters, from adventure touring motorcycles to modern classics. BMW even has ‘urban mobility vehicles’ in the form of scooters, though these aren’t sold in India at this point of time. BMW plans to increase its global sales figures by a significant number, and the 310cc motorcycles that have been developed with TVS will play a big role.
However, BMW currently sells only large-displacement motorcycles from its portfolio. The G 310 R and G 310 GS will be launched in the near future, however, but they won’t be accessible as such, with their premium pricing.
