BMW Motorrad is all set to launch the 2020 G 310 R and G 310 GS on October 8. Means we can see those bike in Nepal by next year or end of this year. The new BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS have received small updates to the styling as well as a BS6-compliant engine. While BMW is yet to reveal the motorcycles, a few teaser images have given us a taste of what to expect. The new BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS will get all-LED lighting, with an integrated DRL in the headlamp.
The BMW G 310 twins use the same 312.2cc, single-cylinder, fuel injected, liquid-cooled engine that powers the BS6 Apache RR 310. For the uninitiated, BMW Motorrad and TVS have co-developed the 310 platform. The BMW teaser hints at improved engine refinement, a lack of which was a major concern with the BS4 G 310s. TVS has already addressed that issue to quite an extent with its BS6 Apache RR 310, as we found out during the test. The Apache also gets ride-by-wire, four riding modes, TFT display and smartphone connectivity. It will be interesting to see if BMW offers some, if not all of those features on the 2020 G 310 R and G 310 GS.
New BMW G 310 bikes will continue to sport their predecessors' silhouette but will receive a couple of cosmetic tweaks. Both G 310 R and G 310 GS will get LED headlamp with LED DRL and LED indicators. We also expect the bikes to be available with new colour options and body graphics. While the motorcycles will be available with a fully digital instrument console, we believe the company may replace the old model's LCD unit with a TFT display. The word on the street is that both the G 310 bikes will also get ride-by-wire technology from Apache RR 310 but this inclusion will cause a significant bump in the motorcycles' price.
New BMW G 310 GS and G 310 R bikes will make use of Apache RR 310's 312.2 cc, liquid-cooled engine that makes 34 bhp and 27 Nm. This powerplant will be paired to a six-speed gearbox, possibly with slipper-clutch as standard. BS6 G 310 twins will be more expensive than before because of the cleaner powertrain but we expect this price hike to be minimal. We will get more information revealed on upcoming days.
