Based on the G310R streetfighter, the BMW G 310 GS will derive its power from a 34bhp, 313cc, single-cylinder engine.
November 21, 2016 – BMW Motorrad, the German two-wheeler automaker recently revealed its new adventure tourer – BMW G 310 GS – at the 2016 EICMA in Milan. Now, the company has uploaded a video on its YouTube channel explaining its design and features. In India, this adventure motorcycle will see a release towards the end of next year. Based on the G 310 R platform, this tourer shares some of its design elements with the popular F 700GS.
The BMW G 310 GS is the third product developed jointly by BMW & TVS, the first two being the BMW G 310 R and the fully faired TVS Akula 310. The G310 GS will be a dual-purpose bike for enthusiasts in the country. Read More- BMW G310R – All You Need To Know
This Adventure Sport made its global debut at the 2016 EICMA (Milan Motor Show). BMW Motorrad confirmed that the BMW G 310 GS will hit the Indian shores by the end of 2017. Before GS, BMW-TVS will launch the G310R streetfighter and TVS Akula 310 in the country.
Since mini GS will be sold under BMW Motorrad umbrella, we expect the bike to be priced around Rs 2.5 lakh. Also See – TVS Akula 310 Picture Gallery
|Engine||313cc, single-cylinder water-cooled|
Powering the BMW’s mini-GS is a 313cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that also does duty in the G310R naked motorcycle. To be tweaked to suit the adventure tourer, this power mill churns out a peak power of 34bhp at 9,500rpm and 28Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. Transmission duties are carried out by a 6-speed gearbox.
It is expected that the bike will return around 30kmpl of mileage on city roads and 35kmpl on freeways.
Design and styling of the new BMW entry-level adventure motorcycle seems inspired from its elder sibling – BMW R 1200 GS. Though, some of its features have been borrowed from the G310R such as headlight, handlebar and instrument cluster. The bike also gets a small windscreen and dual-sport tyres. What make it more compatible for rough terrains are a long travel suspension system and all-terrain (off-road) tyres.
Besides the engine, the mini GS Adventure Sport shares its suspension and braking mechanism with the G310R. The suspension system of the bike consists of an inverted telescopic fork upfront and monoshock rear setup. With added fairing, the bike is expected to be slightly heavier than its sibling (weighing 158.5kgs). Based on new tubular steel chassis, the GS 310 could be fitted with 300mm single disc front brake and 240mm rear disc brake with 2-piston floating caliper. The bike might also get dual-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) as standard feature.
