Newly unveiled BMW Concept Stunt G310 previews Motorrad’s upcoming small capacity model.

BMW-Concept-Stunt-G-310-26 BMW Motorrad took the wrap off its latest concept called the BMW Concept Stunt G310 in Brazil recently. Though shown in “stunt concept” form, it does give us a preview of how the brand’s upcoming small-cc model will look like when it debuts at EICMA this year. BMW-Concept-Stunt-G-310-22 As previously reported, BMW Motorrad partnered up with Indian bike manufacturer TVS to produce its upcoming small cc bike codenamed the K3. Based on the newly revealed concept’s nameplate, the concept is likely powered by a liquid-cooled 310cc single-cylinder engine.

This granted BMW Concept Stunt G310 to have an extra long swingarm. Also peculiar is the exhaust silencer’s vertical placement right next to the rear shock. BMW explains that this layout would protect the exhaust can from getting damaged in a crash.

These include the lockable throttle, revised gear ratios for improved low-end acceleration, an oversized rear brake rotor, as well as a second brake lever has been added next to the clutch lever. Completing the stunt bike package on the concept are its stunt tail, axel pegs, and crash bars.

Fuelling this are things such as the use of bright colours similarly to KTM’s formula for its small-displacement range, not forgetting the fact that it also roped in Pfeiffer as a hype tool for the concept as well.
