K-Speed is known to build custom bikes with small engine displacements for instance a chunky Honda Grom and a CT125 Combat
BMW G310R is considered a very attractive motorcycle even in its stock form. The naked streetfighter sure manages to grab eyeballs whenever it zooms past people in close proximity. A custom-built version of the street naked motorcycle has surfaced on the internet which has been developed by K-Speed Customs.
Christened as ‘Road Rumbler’, this ultra naked iteration of G310R sees most of its body panels stripped down to adopt a minimalism design approach. In its modified form, the bike appears to be a rally racer with a hint of masculine machismo. While many would feel it is a little too overcooked, it actually is very functional.
For starters, K-Speed has used a different theme for BMW’s M-Sport colour scheme on the bike’s fuel tank, rear fender and belly pan giving it a nice contrast with white paint. The white paint has also been applied to the alloy wheels with a powder-coated finish as well as the rear mono-shock unit. As mentioned, all side panels have been removed while front and rear fenders have been chopped off with only a small part remaining attached.
The sculpted tail section incorporates a unique-looking under-seat exhaust muffler and the single-piece saddle is good enough to hold only the rider. The front fender gives it an ADV-like appearance with a narrow beak.
Moreover, the stock headlamp has been replaced by a small but retro-looking LED aftermarket unit along with two tiny LED front turn indicators that lend a hint of retro appeal. Additionally, the conventional rearview mirrors have been ditched for round, bar-end black mirrors.
Despite the radical change in its appearance, the Road Rumbler looks uncluttered and simple. Further, new chunky tyres have been wrapped around the wheels which makes it a decent soft-roader.
The workshop has done away with golden coloured USD forks at front and replaced them with black coloured units which match the bike’s overall theme. Overall, this G310R has made a transition from a naked streetfighter to a neo-retro scrambler with hints of a rally adventure bike.
There is no mention of any modifications to its powertrain. So it is safe to assume that it is propelled by the same 313cc water-cooled reverse-inclined single-cylinder motor in this custom form. This engine delivers an output of 34 bhp and 28 Nm of peak torque while being paired to a six-speed transmission.
