Looking like a smaller version of the top-selling BMW R 1200 GS, the new G 310 GS is promised to be “a genuine GS”.

The smallest BMW was unveiled at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan alongside the new R nineT Urban G/S, updated R 1200 GS, K 1600 GTL with reverse and F 800 models, as well as their ConnectedRide technologies.

The G 310 GS will join the new G 310 R, both of which are the smallest bikes in the fleet and the first built in India.

The is G 310 R is coming to Australia next year at $5790. While BMW Motorrad Australia has expressed interest in the GS version, there is no word on when it will arrive.

Like the G 310 R, the GS is powered by a single-cylinder 313cc engine with  25kW (34hp) at 9500rpm and maximum torque of 28Nm at 7500rpm.

It’s a quirky twin-cam engine with the head tilting backward, rather than forward. Intake is at the front and outlet at the rear.

However, it’s different from the G 310 R with its high fender, GS styling, 19-inch front wheel, short 1420mm wheelbase and 180mm of suspension travel.

It has 41mm upside-down forks and sits on dual-sport tyres 110/80 R-19 and 150/70 R17.

Impressively, it has massive 300mm discs for such a light bike (169.5kg) and switchable ABS comes as standard.BMW G 310 GS
