We recently spent some time with the new BS6 edition of the BMW G 310 GS and liked the motorcycle for several reasons. You can read our first ride review of the bike here. Now, what you see in these pictures is the latest iteration of its naked street bike version, the G 310 R. Similar to its ADV sibling, the G 310 R has also received a host of updates. It gets a revised styling, new features, slightly changed hardware, and of course, BS-bound alterations in its 313cc engine. And most importantly, the motorcycle is significantly cheaper than its BS4 derivative.
All of it gives rise to a few questions – How much better is the bike now over its predecessor? Have the issues been fixed which had plagued the outgoing model? And, does it have what it takes to outdo the profoundly accomplished KTM 390 Duke?
We try to answer all these questions in this detailed review of the new BMW G 310 R BS6.
