BMW Motorrad continues to reveal a range of new models, upgrades and enhancements, with news the 2021 G 310 R will arrive in Australia in the first quarter of next year, boasting a range of enhancements to improve rider engagement at all levels.
The dynamic single-cylinder G 310 R first debuted in 2015, opening up the world to BMW Motorrad’s roadster offerings for the sub-500cc segment. It was renowned for providing quick and agile handling in the city and confident, powerful capabilities on the open road.
The heart of the new BMW G 310 R is still the punchy 313cc liquid-cooled engine with four valves, two overhead camshafts and electronic fuel injection. Its unique design ensures particularly compact vehicle architecture.
With an output of 25kW (34hp) and maximum torque of 28Nm, the engine in the new BMW G 310 R is the ideal partner for dynamic roadster pleasure. It’s equipped with electronic throttle grip and now offers an even more sensitive throttle response.
Automatic idle speed increase when starting also prevents a possible sudden stalling of the engine. The self-boosting anti-hopping clutch is new too.
It reduces engine drag torque and provides a significant increase in riding safety, particularly during braking manoeuvres involving simultaneous downshifting. It also offers reduced operating forces at the clutch lever.
Also new on the BMW G 310 R is a full-LED headlight for even better visibility at night, and LED flashing turn indicators for increased visibility in traffic.
The three light functions – high beam, low beam and daytime riding light – can be conveniently operated using the left handlebar controls.
Both the clutch lever and the handbrake lever are now adjustable in four stages and provide ergonomic benefits, particularly for those with small hands. Dynamics and agility also feature in the BMW G 310 R’s design.
The visual similarity to top level family members such as the BMW S 1000 R is unmistakeable. This is also reflected in the colour scheme of the dynamic roadster.
All three colour options of the BMW G 310 R share a common theme – the engine housing covers for the alternator, clutch and coolant pump, as well as footrest plate and rear grab handle are painted in Titanium Grey Metallic.
Aside from the base colour, Cosmic Black, another base colour option, Polar White, is now available, which together with blue painted accents represents the traditional BMW corporate colours in a fresh, forward-thinking fashion.
In Sport style with the base colour, Limestone Metallic, eye-catching red R graphic on the fairing side panels and red frame and wheels, the new BMW G 310 R confidently reveals its sporty side.
Pricing and specifications for the new G 310 R will be announced early next year. For further information please see your local BMW Motorrad dealer.
