After a few delays, the G 310 GS will be available at the dealers from 7th October, rounding up BMW’s adventure bike line up.
There were problems with the Indian production partner TVS, which delayed the market introduction of the BMW G 310 GS which had already been presented at the end of 2016. Since everything is going smoothly in India, the small adventure bike is now available.
The G 310 GS is built on the G 310 platform. Thanks to a GS-typical fairing, the machine is quite an adult motorcycle, although it shares the majority of the components with the already available roadster G 310 R.
The fact that this is not just an optical adaptation of the concept is shown by the technical data. The steering head is positioned higher in the frame, the steering head angle drops flatter. The (not adjustable) USD fork has an advanced axle mount, the caster is reduced from 64.9 to 63.3 degrees. The front and rear suspension travels have been increased to 180 millimetres and the front wheel measures 19 inches in diameter. In sum, the seat height thus increases from 790 to 835 millimetres. On request, a lower or higher bench can be ordered.
The 313 cubic centimetre single cylinder remained unchanged, delivering a top performance of 34 hp at 9500 rpm and a maximum torque of 28 newton meters at 7500 rpm.
The standard equipment includes a deactivatable ABS, an exhaust system made of stainless steel, an LED rear light and a luggage rack.
