With the BMW G 310 GS, BMW Motorrad opened a new world of experience in the engine capacity segment below 500 cc in 2016. Extremely compact, robust and enormously versatile, it immediately established itself as a true BMW GS – especially for beginners. Four years after its debut, BMW Motorrad is now presenting the new BMW G 310 GS. Versatile, safer and more dynamic – whether in everyday traffic, enjoyable journeys over the country road or off-road in light terrain.
Single-cylinder engine according to EU-5 homologation with e-gas and automatic idle lift.
The heart of the new BMW G 310 GS is still the proven 313 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine with four valves, two overhead camshafts and electronic fuel injection. As a constructive characteristic, the cylinder inclination remains to the rear and the cylinder head rotated 180 degrees with inlet at the front and outlet at the rear. This arrangement follows the logic of an optimal combustion air flow and results in a particularly compact architecture of the vehicle. With an output of 25 kW (34 hp) at 9 500 min-1 and a maximum torque of 28 Nm at 7 500 min-1, the single-cylinder of the new BMW G 310 GS is also the ideal partner for dynamic motorcycle pleasure in the current EU-5 homologation.
For use in the new BMW G 310 GS, the engine was equipped with a so-called "electronic gas handle" (e-gas) and now offers an even more sensitive gas reception. An automatic idle lift during start-up also prevents a possible sudden death of the engine. Also new is the self-reinforcing anti-hopping clutch. It reduces the engine towing torque and brings a significant increase in driving safety – especially for braking manoeuvres that are connected with simultaneous shutdown. It also offers significantly reduced operating forces on the clutch hand lever.
New LED headlights and LED flashing lights – see and be seen optimally.
If the BMW G 310 GS already had a brake light in LED technology, the new BMW G 310 GS now has a full LED headlamp for even better visibility during night driving and LED flashing lights for increased visibility in traffic. The new LED headlight not only offers particularly bright and homogeneous illumination of the roadway. On the contrary, due to the changed connection, disturbing vibrations of the light cone are also a thing of the past. The three light functions remote and dipped-beam light as well as the daytime running light are conveniently operated via the left handlebar valve.
Four-stage adjustable hand levers for brake and clutch.
Both the clutch and handbrake levers are now four-stage adjustable. They now offer ergonomic advantages, especially for people with small hands. The stage 3 of the brake lever adjustment corresponds to the previous grip width. In position 1, the brake lever moves 6 mm closer to the handlebars.
Gently reworked design with an attractive base color and two exclusive style variants.
GS is a promise at BMW Motorrad. It stands for absolute function, reliability and robustness. Accordingly, the new BMW G 310 GS can at first glance be identified as a real BMW GS. With a characteristic windshield, high front fender, distinctive flyline and short, high rear, it shows the essential elements of the large BMW R 1250 GS models – and looks even more aggressive and dynamic thanks to the new LED headlight from the front.
The colour concept also reflects the affiliation to the BMW GS family. All three colour variants of the BMW G 310 GS are combined with the motor housing covers of the generator, clutch and water pump, which are now painted in titanium grey metallic.
In addition to the GS typical colour scheme in white with the base colour Polarweiss uni and grey tank side panels, the new BMW G 310 GS is very sporty in the style rally. The red painted frame and Kyanite blue metallic for tank-middle-cover and front beak emphasize the off-road talents and make the vehicle look extremely dynamic.
As an edition "40 Years GS", the BMW G 310 GS, on the other hand, borrows from a famous historical model from bmw GS history – the R 100 GS. Accordingly, it appears in black-yellow – with the basic color Cosmicblack uni and yellow graphics on the tank side panels. Just in time for the anniversary, BMW Motorrad is also presenting a new collection of driver equipment.
