The cosmetic changes have been executed in the front section of the bike. The design of the headlamp and bikini fairing is more angular now while the fuel tank and its extensions sport sharper lines and creases. The plastic panels around the fuel tank appear larger and split into two parts. Apart from these alterations, the remaining body panels seem to have remain unchanged.

Despite being a premium motorcycle, BMW had skipped equipping the G 310 R with LED headlamp and turn indicators. That is set to be changed now as the spied mule clearly incorporates full-LED lighting. Other changes will come in the form of a revised powerplant in order to comply with the new BS6 emission norms. Although the right side of the bike is not visible in the spy shots, expect it to get a reworked exhaust set up and a larger catalytic converter. 

The existing BS4-complaint 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine of the G 310 R produces 33bhp and 28Nm. These performance figures might see minor variations following the BS6-bound changes. In terms of cycle parts, the facelift G 310 R seems to remain as it is, with the same USD forks, monoshock, tubular frame, swingarm and ByBre brakes.

The updated BMW G 310 R was also accompanied by the new G310GS while undergoing tests. Both bikes will certainly launch after the Coronavirus pandemic is under control and all the operations are resumed in full-fledge. In India, the company might opt to bring it around the festive season when the buyer sentiments are high. Also, since BMW won’t be a part of the EICMA, the international debut of the motorcycle might take place through the brand’s own online channels.
