G310GS Adventure - launch prices and details

Rally Raid Products G310GS Adventure
parts and accessories

official launch pricing and details


photo. Adam Mitchinson, some where in the Australian outback - after a successful 10,000km/9 day adventure test using two bikes fitted with the pre-produciton RRP Adventure kits.

With the final 'real world' pre-production testing session in Australia considered a complete success, it is full speed ahead with the production schedule for wheels and suspension now, together with all the associated 'hard parts' and accessories; and Rally Raid have committed to officially launching the G310GS Adventure range on sale worldwide from the 2nd April 2018, ie. the Monday after the end of March.

However, because certain products are already inventoried and in stock in the factory, you can actually expect to see some of the smaller items going on sale early over the next week or so - including the Adventure (tall) and Sport (shorter, but taller than OEM) screens in clear or light smoke tint; the bar risers and fat-bar clamps; 12v power socket/bracket options; and perhaps best news of all - the LEVEL 1 shocks are due in stock by the 26th of this month, with the fork kits and LEVEL 2 shock soon to follow - plus you may well see some engine guards and luggage racks available a little earlier too.

So do keep an eye on the Rally Raid Products website/shop pages, and we'll let you know here too of course as soon as the individual products start to go live!


Prices for key G310GS components at launch

In the meantime, those of you especially who have been following these developments from the beginning, will be happy to hear that we've been able to achieve our goal of keeping the prices of the 310GS components and accessories affordable - ie. either the same price as the CB500X equivalents, while in regard to some suspension options actually even more affordable - primarily because some of our GS kits do not require as many individual components as the CB equivalent.

So here we go! (note all prices in GBP ex vat. making it easy for anyone outside the EU wishing to convert to their own currency)

LEVEL 1 fork kit £199.00

LEVEL 1 shock £399.00

LEVEL 1 LOW shock £399.00

LEVEL 2 shock and fork kit (set) £799.00

Hydraulic preload adjuster (option for LEVEL 1 and LEVEL 2 shocks) £199.00


GS spoked wheel kit (tubed) £825.00

GS Tubeless spoked wheel kit £1049.00


Adventure engine guard (black powder coat) £199.00

Adventure EVO engine guard (quick release) £239.00


Adventure windscreen £91.00

Sport windscreen £49.00

You can expect to see the full specification/descriptions to appear on the Rally Raid web-shop pages in the next few days, and once stock is available, you'll be able to 'buy-it-now' in the usual way!

Exciting times!

A little more info for those of you not already familiar with the specification of the various options listed above:

Suspension

LEVEL 1 shock retains the original seat height.

LEVEL 1 LOW shock reduces seat height by 10mm, with an adjuster allowing up to a further -25mm reduction as required.

LEVEL 1 fork kit is appropriate to pair with either shock, and can be purchased/fitted independently if desired.

LEVEL 2 shock and fork is sold as kit. +20mm travel/ride height at the rear, and +25mm at the front. Shock features a remote reservoir (as part of the main shock body, not on a hose) and is fully adjustable.

note. Both LEVEL 1 and LEVEL 2 fork components include low-profile billet aluminium preload adjustment caps.


Wheels

Our bespoke heavy-duty spoked wheel kits are available for tube-type or professionally converted to tubeless using the BARTubeless fully [4-year] warrantied sealing system. Both wheel options are available with a choice of black or gold powder-coated rims at no extra cost. Our front and rear hubs are designed specifically to accept the OEM brake discs and cush-drive assembly (and come fitted with new bearings and seals too) making the swap very simple, and replacement parts widely available at any BMW dealer.


Engine guard/s

Our unique design Adventure engine guard for the GS is not just a simple skid-plate, but a fully integrated tubular cradle designed to protect both the bottom and the front & sides of the suspended engine. There will be two versions available - the more affordable option utilises a welded steel skid-pan section, and the whole assembly is designed to be easily removed for any servicing requirements. It will be available in black powder-coat finish.

Our EVO engine guard design will feature a separate and removable aluminium centre skid-plate panel directly below the sump and in front of the oil filter - allowing even quicker access for oil changes while leaving the main framework in place - and this also offers the option to replace a damaged centre section if that is ever required. The EVO engine guard will be available in a satin silver finish - similar to existing OEM BMW accessories.


Windscreens

The Adventure screen is the taller of our two options (see the photo of Adam and Amy above), and is designed to offer far better wind/weather protection than the stock fly-screen, and has been specifically shaped to allow the bars to clear on full lock, even with straighter bars and/or hand-guards fitted.

The Sport screen is a shorter screen, but still offers more protection/deflection than the OEM screen, and the same clearance for hand-guards and/or straighter bars.

Both screens are available in clear, or light smoke tint.



For further information, there will be more detailed specification and fitting instructions (where required) on the corresponding Rally Raid Products web-shop G310GS pages very soon!

Check Rally Raids website, and look at the Honda 500 one. Supposedly close to that version.

2018 Black 310GS
2011 Royal Enfield Classic with Cozy Bullet sidecar
1981 Honda 400 Homemade Bobber
1978 Honda Naked Goldwing
16 past varieties too numerous to mention

Hi Tonnetje - not yet - well, not of the production guard. The guards fitted to the two Australian bikes show the overall design - with the tube-work that protects the front and sides of the engine, along with the bottom of the radiator on each side - but there have been a couple of subsequent detail changes.

Once the production components are photographed, they'll be posted here and on the Rally Raid website page.

Hi Tickster (and Tonnetje too) - if you watch the Australian bike build video, at 8m25s you get a good view of the pre-production guard on the bike.

note. it has a temporary shield in front of the oil filter for the test, as the final centre section had not been cut prior to these first fabrications.

As I say, there have been a couple of other minor detail changes, and you'll see these once the production guards are batch-produced and ready for sale.

yep i saw the whole video nice made and serious off roading as well in this movie
sounds good with the scorpion exhaust and its a real off road bike with this setup wheels/exhaust/shocks
have to make decisions to keep the bike and spend money for wheels and shocks and keep it the next couple of years or ride it 1 seasen and trade it in
and buy a bike with wire wheels on it like ktm or yamaha
but i love the looks of the the baby GS and weight
and he performed very well in this teaser movie

Hi Tonnetje - of course only you can make the final decision if this size/kind of bike is ultimately right for your intended use - but this is certainly a good opportunity to remind everyone that the reason John and I developed this range of parts and upgrades for the G310GS is that we feel it is an excellent platform as a solo and light[er] weight all-terrain Adventure bike - something even more appropriate for poking around on unknown trails while embarking on an extended ride - whether that be a day, a long weekend, a week, or even more - where your priority is not to have to bypass a particular trail because it might turn out to be a bit tricky/technical for the size of bike you are on... and that ultimately you can customise and personalise it depending on your individual requirements.

I think it's pretty clear to most of us already that a larger capacity (and ideally twin cylinder) machine is going to be more suited to longer-distance and high-mileage/higher-speed on-road use; and similarly if carrying a passenger and or a lot of [hard] luggage is a priority, then I'd suggest the G310GS is perhaps a little small for that - certainly the rear pillion seat-pad would make things cosy, although conversely, looks absolutely perfect for a soft luggage bag like a Giant Loop.

But if all-round manageability off-road, coupled with legal-limit on-road cruising ability is the combination someone is looking for, I'd suggest this little BMW suitably prepared and protected is going to be hard to beat!
