The BMW G 310 GS is indeed designed as an adventure version that takes the engine base from the street version of the G 310 R.
This motorbike is also proof, that the collaboration of BMW Motorrad and TVS Motor, from India, can also make a motorbike that is just as cool, classy, and arguably still following the genes of the adventurer BMW R 1200 GS.
BMW Motorrad equipped the G 310 GS with an engine with coolant to absorb heat from the performance of a single-cylinder capacity of 313 cc. The engine is claimed to be able to deliver power up to 34 hp at 9,500 rpm, and a maximum torque of 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm.
Power from a fairly compact engine is supported by the front suspension type up-side-down (USD) with a diameter of 41 mm which is enough to reduce the attenuation when the motor crosses the non-asphalt track. The suspension supports the tire with a 19-inch diameter rim.
While at the rear, there is a single suspension measuring 180 mm that can be adjusted to the shock system (adjustable preload). The suspension is mounted on a swing arm (arm) which flanks the rear wheel rim with a diameter of 17 inches.
The BMW G 310 GS can be driven up to a maximum speed of 143 km / h with fuel consumption reaching 3.33 liters / 100 km.
Comfort is also one part that BMW carefully considers. The seat can be adjusted according to the rider’s height. Simply put, the seat will adjust to the ergonomics, so that the rider can get more comfortable.
The configuration of the base of BMW G 310 GS is calculated with the support of various advanced features. This is then to provide a lower center of gravity while making the weight of the motor more focused on the front wheels. The aim is to get better handling.
The BMW G 310 GS is also equipped with an anti-lock braking system (ABS) feature that can be deactivated manually. The feature is there to make it easier for the rider to control and brake the motor when crossing the off-road lane.
Another feature that also supports BMW G 310 GS is the availability of smartphone charging plugs. Besides, the device is also useful to recharge GPS.
With a myriad of advanced features embedded in the BMW G 310 GS, the motorbike is the first suitable product for those who want to start a new hobby with an adventurous motorbike.
