Yuvraj Singh is a huge BMW fan and the cricketer has over the years added a number of offerings from the Bavarian automaker to his garage. In a change of pace though, the all-rounder has added something small, fast and distinctly Bavarian, albeit on two-wheels. This is the recently launched BMW G 310 R we are talking about the Indian cricketer was recently taking delivery of the street fighter at a BMW Motorrad dealership. The G 310 R is the German giant's smallest motorcycle yet and is made-in-India carrying a price tag of ₹ 2.99 lakh (ex-showroom).

While Yuvraj has a fascination for motorcycles, the 36-year-old has been seldom seen riding one. The BMW G 310 R is a welcome change in his garage and joins a host of exotics including the BMW X6 M, Audi Q5, BMW 3 Series, Bentley Continental Flying Spur and the likes. He also had a Lamborghini Murcielago in his collection a couple of years ago. The cricketer also owns an E46 BMW M3 Convertible that was recently modified and custom painted. The BMW G 310 R also joins a custom 2015 KTM 390 Duke that was unveiled at India Bike Week that year, specifically for his cancer foundation 'YouWeCan'.

The new BMW G 310 R also managed to impress when we rode it last month and justifies its high pricing with impeccable quality all over. Power comes from a 313 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine tuned to produce 34 bhp at 9500 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque at 7500 rpm. The motor is paired with a 6-speed transmission. The bike is underpinned by a Trellis frame and is suspended by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock unit at the rear. The bike uses disc brakes at either end with dual-channel ABS as part of the standard kit.
