BMW F310GS (KTM 390 Adventure rival) tourer based on G310R rendered
BMW Motorrad is working on a compact displacement adventure tourer which would be based on the G310R naked motorcycle. The news was confirmed by the company’s UK chief recently, and we have an exclusive speculative rendering of the upcoming bike created by Pratyush Rout.
Likely to be called as the BMW F310GS (or GS310R), the adventure tourer would be manufactured by TVS as a part of the technology cooperation agreement it has with BMW Motorrad.
The rendering artist has envisioned the F310GS as the smaller derivative of the popular F700GS. The fuel tank, headlamp and tailpiece of the motorcycle in the speculative rendering derives heavily from the F700GS. A long travel suspension system, tall windshield and alloy wheels round off the package.
The compact BMW adventure tourer would be targeting budding enthusiasts and would act as a good stepping stone in the world of more hardcore riding. The motorcycle is likely to retain the 313 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which is mated to a 6-speed transmission. On board the G310R, the engine produces 34 PS and 28 Nm of torque. The engine and gearbox would be tweaked to suit touring application.
The BMW F310GS will most likely have a TVS counterpart which will be manufactured alongside. Production of the G310R is set to commence at TVS’ Hosur plant any time now. Prototypes of the adventure tourer derivative have not emerged on the public roads yet so we presume that it is still some time away from its D-day.
