Milan EICMA 2016: BMW Returns to Milan, This Time With Vengeance

BMW is back, this time with a new motorcycle. The German motorcycle giant unveiled a dual-purpose version of the G 310R at the EICMA event in Milan, Italy.

BMW has been feverishly working over the past few years to come up with a much better GS design. The result is completely new, one with an adventure-filled-style, the BMW Motorrad G 310 GS.

Powering the new BMW bike is an all-new 313cc liquid-cooled single cylinder engine with four valves, electronic fuel injection, a two overhead camshafts. The power setting enables the bike to churn out an awesome power figure of 33.5 bhp at 9500 rpm and maximum torque of 28 NM at 7500 rpm, paired to a six-speed gearbox.

For complete specs, the new bike measures 1230 mm in height, 2075mm in length, and 880mm in width. It has a wheelbase of 1,420mm and weighs 169.5 kilograms.

Fashion could be the main reason why this new bike might be small in capacity compared with its well-established cousin, the G 310R. The G 310 GS borrows design cues from its older sibling, and it’s the only BMW GS that has not been produced in Germany. 

Like the G 310R, the new bike gets a tubular steel frame along with a cast five-spoke wheels, and a whole new 313cc liquid-cooled engine with reversed cylinder four-valves DOHC cylinder head. It features a newly-designed fairing with the stubby front beak, headlamp cowl, radiator shrouds, a 'GS' moniker on the fuel tank, a long-travel suspension, off-road friendly tires and a new engine cowl.

In terms of digital technology, the bike is decently equipped with an all-LCD dash, plus myriad official accessories to choose from, including heated grips, 12-volt power sockets, plus satnav and modern smartphone solutions.

In addition, the new bike also equipped with optional luggage carrier, center stand, top box, tank bag, LED indicators, heated grips, and a GPS navigator and support systems.

The BMW Motorrad is the motorcycle brand of the German-based automotive giant BMW, part of the company’s Corporate and Brand Development division. 

There’s no word on price yet, but reports said that it might start at £4290.
