We recently spend some time with the new BMW G310 GS, comprehensively scrutinizing it in every scenario possible to bring you our ride review that you can read HERE. And here we have selected a few detailed images of the adventure motorcycle for you to ogle at.
Beginning with the visuals, the BS6-compliant BMW G310 GS doesn’t stray far from the previous model. It gets similar styling with slight tweaks to the front end and fuel tank. Then there is the inclusion of the full-LED lighting for the headlamp, turn indicators and tail lamp. Furthermore, the new BMW G310 GS also gets new colour options like this Rallye paint scheme that draws inspiration from the bigger R1250 GS.
Adding to its visual appeal is the golden-finished upside down forks upfront. It is accompanied by a monoshock at the rear. Meanwhile, braking duties are carried out by a 300mm disc for the front and a 240mm disc for the rear wheel. The setup also comes with a dual-channel ABS.
Powering the BMW G310 GS is the same 312cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine as the G310 R, with the same power figures. The motor offers oodles of grunt in the mid-range which ensures overtaking is an easy task. And while the G310 GS is also enthusiastically agile it could do better with a lighter clutch pull and smoother gearbox which is currently clunky to operate.
On the flip side, the adventure motorcycle offers plush ride quality and the suspension setup handles pothole-ridden roads with utmost stability. It also offers comfortable riding position and the standing-up ergonomics is decent enough too.
In terms of features, the BMW G310 GS comes with full-LED lighting and an LCD instrument cluster that is the same as the previous model. While it does get ABS, the system is not switchable like its rivals, the Royal Enfield Himalayan and KTM 250 Adventure.
As we found out through our review, the BMW G310 GS has a few niggles, but its positives truly outweigh them. Along with decent touring and commuting abilities, the BMW can also pamper the off-road enthusiast once in a while. And now that is costs Rs 65,000 lesser than before, the G310 GS seems to be a much better package than before.
