The baby beemer was supposed to make its debut in the third or fourth quarter of 2016 but our sources have confirmed that the 313cc entry-level BMW will only make it here next year for reasons unknown.

The G310R has been highly anticipated as it opens up the fantastic world of BMW Motorrad to an all new segment. There has been no confirmed indication on pricing but market speculation whispered prices of around RM30,000 – RM40,000 or lower. Dealers were also reportedly taking orders on the bike, you can read about that by clicking here.

The move comes as a surprise as the BMW G310R was officially on tour recently around Malaysia and was available for viewing at selected BMW Motorrad outlets. That move was seen a pre-launch move to get the market ready for launch. So the launch delay comes as a surprise for all of us.
