2017 BMW G 310 GS: FIRST LOOK (Gallery and Video)
Little things come in big packages. Or should that big things come in little packages? Whatever, because BMW has finally revealed a motorcycle that could have potentially more earning capacity than any bike in its current line up in the BMW G 310 GS.

The junior GS therefore has a lot riding on its shoulders. But it’s not just the mentioned markets where BMW hopes the G 310 GS will capitalize. Western markets would love a BMW that doesn’t guzzle gas and still looks the part, plus has that BMW air of quality about it. Despite the fact this is the only GS in the range that isn’t built in Germany, the 310 – based off the recently released G 310 R roadster and using the same engine and chassis – still looks pretty top line with unmissable GS aesthetics, long travel suspension via the 41mm inverted fork, 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel, radially mounted brakes and single-cylinder engine that pumps out a claimed 34hp pushing 373lb of dry weight.
On top of that, there’s also an LCD dash, ABS, 12-volt power socket, heated grips, and two seat options (32.2 in and 33.4 in).
There’s three color schemes: Cosmic Black non-metallic, Racing Red non-metallic and Pearl White metallic. No word yet on the price…CN
