An advertisement for the BMW G310R, purportedly taking bookings for the upcoming small-displacement BMW, has appeared on local classifieds website Mudah.

The advertiser is inviting potential buyers of BMW’s joint-venture motorcycle with Indian company TVS to place refundable deposits of RM300, with the expected sales price to be between RM25,000 to RM30,000.

The upcoming G310R has been widely anticipated in the south-East Asian market, as the first small capacity motorcycle BMW has manufactured in decades. The burgeoning demand in Asean and associated regions has certainly garnered the interest of motorcycle manufacturers hoping to tap into the market. As for the veracity of the advertisement, would urge caution.

This naked roadster, with a single-cylinder engine displacing 313 cc produces 34 hp at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm and weighs 158 kg. Designed in conjunction with TVS of India, the impending release of the BMW G310R is one of the most widely anticipated motorcycle launches in 2016. The 2016 BMW G310R is rumoured to be launched in March, but BMW Motorrad has not made any confirmation.
