Spy shots have emerged of BMW’s G310GS and G310R out testing in India. And by the looks of things, they’re pretty much ready to go – which indicates we’ll likely see them launched at the end of the year.
Designed and developed by BMW but manufactured by TVS Motor (who recently snapped up the struggling Norton brand), it’s not a massive surprise that there’s some updates coming for German factory’s A2 licence machines; the single cylinder motor needed a bit of work to meet new Euro 5 regulations. That’s not the only change though. There’s been a slight visual overhaul to give them a sharper look – plus they each get new LED headlights, new fuel tanks and revised radiators too.
At this stage, there’s been no official confirmation from the Bavarian brand that there are two new bikes on the way – which means there’s no technical information available either. But it’s unlikely that they’ll be less powerful than the outgoing 310 machines which were driven by a liquid-cooled single cylinder 313cc motor capable of kicking out 34hp and 28Nm of torque.
Of course, we’re just making educated guesses at this stage – we’ll have to sit tight for another couple of month’s to find out exactly what’s happening with the new G310GS and G310R from BMW.
