BMW Motorrad’s new G310R-based adventure tourer has been spotted again and this time it was caught testing on the roads of Germany.
The guys at MCN managed to take a few clear photos of the G310 GS before its expected reveal at the 2016 EICMA Show next month. BMW was actually revealing their new models at the Intermot motorcycle show in Cologne and they probably brought the G310 GS along with them to Germany.
Based on the more street orientated G310R, the GS variant looks to have borrowed design elements from its more powerful sibling, the R 1200 GS. It is sporting new half-fairings with the GS logo on display, a long-travel suspension, off-road friendly tyres, extended tail, new engine cowl and a sculpted fuel tank. We can see the G310R in the headlight, handlebar and instrument cluster, but the rest is from the BMW adventure lineup.
Powering the G310 GS will be the same 313cc, liquid-cooled DOHC 4V single-cylinder engine found in the street fighter. It’ll probably churn out the same 34bhp at 9500rpm, and 20.6lbft of torque at 7500rpm. It’ll probably come out heavier than the G310R, but the GS model shouldn’t weigh more than 162kg.
Because the G310 GS is an adventure bike, we can expect to see a whole slew of accessories available including the rear seat luggage case depicted in the picture up top. Hopefully, we’ll receive a confirmation from BMW soon.
