The arrival of BMW has brought with itself, a huge target on its back. These motorcycles have entered a highly competitive market with some amazing players who have been here for a good time now. This comparison we have prepared is to exhibit how the BMW G310 R fares off against its rivals.

Design & Features:

BMW G 310 R is the compact street bike featuring the smallest engine on offer by BMW Motorrad. For power generation, the street bike uses a 313cc engine developing decent power and torque output. Suspension set up will comprise of upside-down telescopic forks in front and adjustable monoshock placed at the rear.

Attributed by affordability, the bike has been developed jointly by TVS and BMW and features chunky fuel tank, suave body panels, belly cow placed under the engine bay, large silencer, alloy rims, large comfortable seat offering snug ride position to the rider, raised tail fairing etc.

KTM 390 Duke gets full-LED headlamp cluster that comes with an angular design complementing the bike’s profile, as well as a LED tail light and indicators. There is a bigger 13.5-litre fuel tank in place, replacing the former 11.5-litre unit and will help offer a much better range on the model.

In addition, there is a tonne of subtle upgrades including wider rearview mirrors, softer seat cushioning, adjustable levers and more durable Metzeler M5 Interact tyres. The 2017 390 Duke is Euro 4 compliant and as a result, also comes with ride-by-wire and a side mounted exhaust to meet the stringent emission norms.

Benelli TNT 300, showcasing a fuel-injected 300cc parallel twin engine that is liquid cooled and comprises of a six-speed gearbox. This naked racer comes loaded with features like trellis frame, horizontal off-set monoshock, inverted front forks and petal discs up front and rear, which provide better heat dispense under hard braking. But what you would really crave for the most is the ballistic sound created by the engine.

The Bajaj Dominar 400 is powered by a BSIV compliant, 373.3cc, single cylinder engine with Triple Spark technology, fuel injection, liquid cooling and 4-valve head. This is the same engine that does duty on the KTM Duke 390, but it has been tuned to churn out 34.5bhp of power at 8000rpm and 35 Nm of torque at 6500rpm.

The 0 to 100 kmph mark is achieved within 8.23 seconds and the top-speed attained it 148 kmph. Bajaj Dominar 400’s engine is paired to a six-speed gearbox. 

Mahindra Mojo comes with 320mm petal front disc brake and a 240 mm unit at the rear, 17-inch tubeless tyresfrom MRF and a gas charged monoshock rear suspension. The front unit now getstelescopic forks instead of a USD setup. 

The maximum amount of torque comes early providing a powerful riding experience on any type of terrain. The special features from the Mojo’s console include a 0-100 kmph timer and top speed recorder. This sounds odd as Mojo has been focused as a tourer and it retains all the important figures like a race bike.

Ducati has a reputation for top-notch engine designs, and it built the Sixty2’s mill just for this purpose. The 399 cc, air-cooled, L-twin engine uses Ducati’s signature Desmodromic valvetrain to actuate two valves in each head, and a 50 mm throttle body with electronic fuel injection manages the induction.

A pair of Lambda probes feed emissions information to the computer, and a catalytic converter burns off any remaining hydrocarbons to meet “Euro 4” emissions standards.
