Just found this drawing of the G 310 R on Instagram and thought I'd share it withe everyone. 10 out of 10 would hang on my wall and it's making me want a while G310R with grey accents.

That's quite impressive and has me thinking this person could come up with some cool drawings of a customized G310R.

The Stunt concept would serve as some good inspiration:

That drawing appeals to me more than the blue G310R in real life, probably because of the various blue tones instead of the solid blue color on the actual bike. Would be a fun project to try and add subtle shades to the fairing yourself.

Could utilize some airbrushing and get more shades into it? These are some seriously talented drawings though, But I think I prefer the uncolored version.

I prefer the colored version, gives the picture more depth and makes me rethink my 310GS paint choice.
Something with a different color scheme and even a different theme is what i like most, hence why I posted the G310R stunt concept and now there's this cafe concept:



Starting to imagine if that was a single sided swing arm with a cleaner looking exhaust :D

That reminds me of those KTM dirt bikes, but better looking. Must be the seat and rear which is missing a large section. Maybe if the exhaust was smaller or underslung then it'll look better.

Aren't cafe races supposed to have that classic look going for it? Even the modern cafe racers that are coming out these days till harken to the older models in terms of design.

I think that looks super cool. Only issue I have is with the exhaust though. Cafe racers do have a classic look as that's the idea behind them but it's always nice to change things up a bit.

Unlike KTM's we're likely to see a customized G310R than any KTM, although that will depend on where you live, still, its not often I know someone who has. Surprisingly I see new Ducati's all the time.

The Ducati brand is predominantly street orientated so their bikes are definitely more common to paved roads. Only Ducati model that's off road ready is the Multistrada.

I can see the GS model getting customized more than the r model, just because of the bike's versatility and ability to go both on and off road.

I'm not too sure where you are located but I barely ever see Ducs anywhere. On the odd occasion I'll see one or two but that's very rare. I typically see drastically more Kawi or Hondas over anything.

Found this majestic pictures of two riders on a G310R at a BMW shop in Plano. not sure if that means it's on sale or if it's a display model that's making its way around.

I'm amazed the g310r doesn't look dwarfed with those two sitting on it. Not quite sure why I was expecting it too look like the size of a Grom with larger riders, but good to know the g310r can accommodate everyone and then some. :grin2:

my photoshopped color wishes

i am thinking of ordering an original bmw stickerset
bring them to a shop and let them re produce them in matt black
then put them on without the top tank one front fender one and the tail one,
would become something like picture 4
