Upcoming new BMW G310GS spied yet again ahead of possible debut at EICMA 2016.
Ok, so BMW Motorrad opted to hold on at debuting the new BMW G310GS – the Adv offshoot of the groundbreaking G310R small-sized naked bike – during last week’s INTERMOT 2016 show.
Nevertheless, we can now expect the ‘Baby GS’ to officially debut at EICMA 2016 next month in Milan, Italy. But of course, the inevitable spyshot and leaks were to be expected, with this being the most recent one.
Crucially, this second spyshot gives up a clearer glimpse of how the final product will look like – complete with a top box too. And we can also see how closely the BMW G310GS mirrors its naked sibling.
At the core of this package is of course the G310R’s 313cc single-cylinder that thumps out roughly 34hp. But its GS offshoot gets all the right Adv treatment through things like higher travelling suspension.
Design-wise, we can see that the BMW G310GS will replicate what’s already signature traits in the larger GS range – F700GS, F800GS R1200GS. For fans, this is indeed good news and the potential this ‘Baby GS’ holds in the current market trend is huge.
BMW Motorrad will tap into a growing segment with a rich number of buyers – especially in emerging markets like Asia. And we reckon the somewhat ‘niche’ small capacity segment will grow rapidly thanks to the upcoming G310GS’ arrival.
