- Features full-LED lighting
- Continues to use an LCD screen
- Likely to be launched before the end of 2020
BMW Motorrad continues to test the upcoming, BS6-compliant G 310 GS ahead of its India launch. Two test mules of the entry-level adventure motorcycle from the Bavarian two-wheeler brand have been spotted once again during the test runs. The test mules did not sport any camouflage, and they appear to be production-ready. Thus, we expect it to arrive in the coming months. BMW Motorrad has remained tight-lipped about the launch details of the BS6-compliant G 310 GS and the G 310 R.
The updated model retains most of the styling cues from the old, BS4 motorcycle. However, BMW Motorrad has updated the feature list to match its rival, the KTM 390 Adventure. Thus, the latest iteration of the G 310 GS packs full-LED lighting. The instrument cluster, however, is still the same LCD unit that was also seen on the BS4 model, and it most likely misses Bluetooth connectivity. In comparison, the KTM 390 Adventure features a colour-TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity and a turn-by-turn navigation system.
In terms of mechanical specifications, the updated model will use a BS6-compliant engine, although we do not expect to see a major change in the displacement or the power and torque output numbers. The 313cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor produced 33bhp of power and 28Nm of torque in BS4 guise, and we expect to see similar numbers on the BS6 model.
The upcoming BMW G 310 GS will most likely carry a price premium over the BS4 model that was priced at Rs 3.49 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
