Still, everyone feels that the bike is slightly overpriced and could have been placed around INR 3 lakh. Here are 7 quick facts about BMW’s entry-level GS motorcycle.
7 Quick Facts About BMW G310GS
1) Design & Style
The design of the newest member keeps the traditional GS design language alive. It features the signature beak that the adventure bikers have accepted. There is a small windscreen and the bike also has dual-sport tires for off-road and on-road use. It fulfils all the requirements of an adventure tourer and you cannot go wrong with this choice. From a distance, one can say for certain that it is a BMW GS.
2) Engine & Gearbox
The G310 GS is powered by a 313cc single-cylinder engine that generates maximum power of 33.6 BHP @ 9500 rpm and a maximum torque of 28 NM @ 7500 rpm. The throttle response is crisp and in no time, the rider can experience the full power of the bike. The engine allows the rider to hit highway speeds with comfort and the handling is easy as well.
3) BMW-Motorrad ABS

4) Approx. Mileage & Range
With an 11 litre tank and a combined mileage of 27-30 kmpl, the G310GS is good for nearly 300-330 km between fuel stops on a mixed driving for mileage and fun. The range is smaller in comparison to typical tourer motorcycles with around 20 litres of fuel carrying capacity.
5) Riding Capability
BMW G310GS allows the rider to enjoy all terrain riding with its long travel front USD forks and rear monoshock. The use of bigger 19-inch front wheel further improves the climbing ability. Both the suspensions allow 180mm of travel while ground clearance for the G310GS is 220mm.
