BMW Motorrad had launched the 2020 G 310 GS which is a big drop from the price of the BS4 motorcycle. BMW has updated the G 310 GS with a set of new colours that are quite striking to look at. The BMW G 310 GS 'Style Rallye', for instance, features a black base colour with contrasting red and blue paintwork. Also, one can notice the bigger 'GS' logo on the fuel tank and the Rallye sticker. Another notable visual change is that the frame is now painted red, unlike the older bike that had a black-coloured frame. In addition to the 'Style Rallye' paint job, BMW is also offering the G 310 GS in the special '40 years GS' paint scheme that commemorates four decades of the BMW GS and is based on the BMW R 100 GS. We are sure 2020 BMW G 310 GS in Nepal will be launched in upcoming months.
In terms of equipment, BMW has updated the motorcycle with an LED headlamp that has an integrated DRL. The turn indicators and tail lamps are LEDs too. The motorcycle also gets new adjustable levers, for an ergonomic fit. Sadly, BMW hasn't equipped the G 310 GS with a TFT display, like the one on its platform cousin, the TVS Apache RR 310. Instead, it continues to use an LCD, full-digital display. The G 310 GS employs the same steel trellis frame, USD telescopic fork and mono shock as on the BS4 motorcycle. As far as the tyres are concerned we noticed that strangely, the G 310 GS in the studio shots is equipped with road-biased Pirelli Rosso II tyres.
The G 310 GS is powered by a fuel-injected, BS6 compliant, 313cc, liquid-cooled, single cylinder engine, mated to a six-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch. It develops 34 hp at 9,500rpm and 28 Nm at 7,500rpm which is as much as what the BS4 engine produced. A notable addition is the new ride-by-wire system. In terms of performance, BMW claims the motorcycle can accelerate from 0-50kph in 2.5s and can hit a top speed of 143kph. The BMW adverts, in the run up to the launch of the BS6 G 310 GS, spoke of improved engine refinement.
The G 310 GS is available with a standard 3 years, unlimited kilometres warranty. The G 310 GS is available in certain Asian BMW Motorrad showrooms. Bookings have already begun and customers can visit any BMW Motorrad dealership or fill up an enquiry form on the BMW website to make their booking. The company says deliveries will be done on a first-come-first-serve basis. Stay tune with us for more auto news in Nepal.
