First introduced in 2016, the G 310 R and G 310 GS are BMW's most affordable models in the market. Despite their lower price points, these bikes pack a punch with their looks, engines, and safety features.
The two bikes are set to get a new power plant for 2022, in the form of a 313cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke, DOHC engine. Power connects to a 6-speed manual gearbox for a top speed of 143 km/h. The new models keep the electronic throttle control feature for peak responsiveness. Automatic speed control is also carried over to keep riders safe when accelerating from a stop. Additionally, the G 310 R and G 310 GS still features the slipper clutch and ride-by-wire system.
As for looks, the G 310 R and G 310 GS get several updates. Full LED headlights, LED daytime running lights (DRLs), and LED turn signals are new for the 2022 models. The new lighting system is both stylish and practical, helping the new BMWs look more modern while giving their riders great visibility.
New color options are also in store for 2022, with the G 310 R getting a Cosmic Black Shade and Kyanite Blue Metallic Rallye colorways. The former includes black side panels and cowling, and the latter gets red alloy wheels to complete the looks.
The new models are set to debut before the end of 2021, and the current-spec BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS are available in the Philippines.
