To make its presence stronger under 500cc segment, bavarian manufacturer BMW Motorrad has unveiled its second Adventure Tourer the G 310 GS, which was developed jointly with India-based motorcycle manufacturer TVS at the ongoing EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy.
The BMW G 310 GS Adventure is the third product from BMW-TVS partnership after the BMW G 310 R naked bike and the TVS Akula 310 supersport concept motorcycle, that is based on the BMW G 310 R. Both the bikes have been caught testing in India several times, and they should launch by the first quarter of 2017. However, the G 310 GS is yet to be seen on the Indian soil.
The bike shares its platform with the G 310 R street-fighter and is the second BMW motorcycle that will be manufactured in TVS’s plant. The engine of the BMW G 310 GS is a Euro 4 compliant 313cc single-cylinder and the fuel-injection system feeds fuel. The engine can develop 34 bhp of maximum power at 9500 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque which is available at 10,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, that sends power to the rear wheels. The motorcycle isn’t particularly light, and weighs at 169 kgs.
The BMW G 310 GS gets a long travel front suspension that is 41mm long, with 19-inch alloy wheels. At the rear the motorcycle gets a 180mm monoshock, that can be adjusted. The instrument cluster is an all LCD unit and shows numerous informations regarding the motorcycle. It also gets double channel ABS and a luggage carrier as standard. The manufacturer will also offer a wide range of accessories that includes heated grips, satellite navigation, 12 volt power sockets etc.
Details on this newly unveiled adventure tourer is not available yet. However, one can expect it to be a bit costlier than the ‘R’ variant significantly. The bike is expected to be launched by 2018.
