BMW’s already coming out with a NineT Scrambler, so why not a G310R Scrambler? Oberdan Bezzi thinks the G310R has potential as a Scrambler, thus the above rendering of a BMW R310SC.
The Scrambler segment has enjoyed a recent resurgence with Ducati so it makes sense for BMW to jump on the bandwagon while it’s hot with a more affordable Scrambler for the masses. Yes the NineT Scrambler is in the works but its price tag puts it out of reach for those who are looking at a Ducati. This is where the R310SC, with SC standing for Scrambler, comes in.
Just having the BMW badge is tempting enough but if the R310SC was to be sold at a similar price to G310R then the Scrambler will be a sure fire hit. It will be a functional and affordable bike that new and experienced riders can use to take on both paved and off road trails.
Bezzi’s rendering shows us just how much potential the R310SC has with radial Brembo brakes, large front motor, and a set of spoked and knobby tires for off-roading on more than packed dirt. Protecting the sump and other important elements located in the belly section is a bash plate that curls upwards for optimal coverage. What isn’t displayed but could be a possibility is the ride height of the G310R being raised to accommodate for its new off-roading capability.
Autoevolution thinks BMW is planning a small displacement GS so we could be seeming something similar to the R310SC in the future.
