The BMW G 310 GS also features the same engine as in the recently-launched TVS Apache RR 310. Bookings have started for the budget-BMW adventure motorcycle. That said, here are the BMW G 310 R top features you should know!
BMW G 310 GS Design Features
The cheapest BMW adventure motorcycle gets a triangular headlamp and a rather small windshield. Like as in conventional adventure motorcycles, the BMW G 310 GS features a ‘beak-fender' along with a regular mudguard. The ‘GS' decal and the BMW logo increase the overall appeal.
Coming to the side of the BMW G 310 GS, the exposed trellis frame, the high-set seat and the nice blend of black and silver, adds to the sporty character of the motorcycle. The G 310 GS also gets a bash plate underneath to protect the engine sump during off-roading. The exhaust is also raised to avoid hitting obstacles.
The rear of the BMW G 310 GS features a large luggage rack, which is both functional and also good looking. BMW Motorrad will be giving a rear top box as an accessory. Below it, rests the compact LED tail lamp and the number plate. Overall, the tail-section looks raw and exposed.
