BMW G 310 GS detailed in new video – Top Speed 143 kmph

After making its global debut at the 2016 EICMA Show earlier this month, BMW G 310 GS has now been detailed in a new 4 minute video. The video is hosted by Chris Northover, Offroad Instructor & Stuntrider, and Sabine Krojer, Product Manager at BMW Motorrad.

BMW G 310 GS is based on the G 310 R street fighter. The bike will be built in India by TVS Motor Company at the company plant in Hosur, Karnataka, while it has been completely designed and engineered by BMW in Germany. It is the third product by BMW-TVS JV and follows the BMW G310R and TVS Akula 310.

BMW G 310 GS gets long travel front suspension, wider off road tyres, redesigned headlamp cluster, a sculpted fuel tank and extended tail section. It gets a set of Metzeler Tourance dual-purpose tyres fitted to 17” alloy wheels. Sadly, off-road enthusiasts will have to content with the same alloys, which are seen on the G 310 R as the G 310 GS will not get spoked wheels like its elder siblings.

Power to the G 310 GS will be via a new 313cc, 4 stroke, single cylinder, watercooled engine offering 34 bhp power at 9,500 rpm and 28 nm torque at 7,500 rpm mated to a 6 speed gearbox. This engine is expected to offer 30 kmpl mileage within city limits and 35 kmpl on the highway. The bike weighs 169.5 kgs and has a top speed of 143 kmph.


BMW G 310 GS is also going to be launched in India. Here, it will be positioned in the Premium Adventure motorcycle segment. This entry level dual purpose motorcycle will take on the likes of Royal Enfield Himalayan, Mahindra Mojo, and the upcoming KTM Duke 390 Adventure.
