BMW G310 GS Adventure – Rendering
Posted on: Apr 30, 2016 - 4:01pm IST
Will go up against the Royal Enfield Himalayan and the upcoming KTM 390 Adventure.
Reportedly confirmed by a BMW Motorrad UK official a few days back, the BMW G 310 GS Adventure would be making its world premiere in 2017.
Sadly, there has been no spy image or sketches hinting the bike’s design. To give you an idea of how this baby adventure tourer will look like, our artist Shoeb R Kalania has rendered the motorcycle.
The upcoming Bimmer looks highly inspired by its elder sibling – the BMW R 1200 GS. Though it will be based on the G310 R, some adventure focussed components like long travel suspension, dual purpose tyres and taller windshield would be integrated to do justice to its ‘GS’ suffix. The bike primarily focuses on budding tourers and will be manufactured at the TVS production facility in Hosur after being engineered by BMW in Germany.
The BMW G310 GS will share the same 313 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that does duty on its naked sibling. The six-speed transmission equipped, fuel-injected mill produces 34 hp of power with 28 Nm of torque, which will be retuned for the tourer’s application. Once launched, the bike will go head to head with the upcoming KTM 390 Adventure and to some extent, with the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
