BMW is going to launch a mini-GS adventure bike (like the big 1200cc Adventure, above) based on the smaller G310R’s motor and the bike is likely to appear in 2017.

The news comes direct from BMW top brass and confirms that the smaller-bike modular concept will spawn other models from the original 34bhp single-cylinder naked bike that launched last year (pictured below).
Speaking exclusively to our sister title Motorcycle Sport & Leisure, BMW Motorrad UK’s director Phil Horton, below, talked about the range of bikes coming and, more specifically, what can be done with the smaller model.
He said: “New models aside, the line-up isn’t as comprehensive as it needs to be. But there are plenty more bikes to come, including, hopefully in 2017, a G310R GS-style derivative. That’s quite an interesting proposition in itself.”
In addition to the tiny GS, BMW is also expected to launch a fully-faired, track-inspired, full-on sports version of the G310R later this year, too.
