On starting our countdown we can see this great touring bike BMW GS 310 GS which was like by many of the riders. Because of their attractive features and stylish design it will offers great experience to the riders while touring.
G 310 GS Specifications
The BMW makes quite a few tweaks to the internals of the 313cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled mill. Output remains constant at 34PS and 28Nm but in our VBox acceleration test, we found it to be marginally slower than its BS4 counterpart. The six-speed transmission now gets a slip-and-assist clutch. On the surface of it, the 43mm USD fork and preload-adjustable monoshock might seem to be identical to the older BS4 GS.
However, BMW has changed the tune of the suspension units by a smidge, making them not too soft and wallowy. No changes to the braking hardware for the BS6 bike–300mm front disc and 240mm rear disc brake setup still bringing the bike to a halt. Dual-channel ABS remains but no possibility to switch intervention at the rear now.
G 310 GS Design
You can see there was not a major change in the G 310 GS it still looks the part of a GS motorcycle, but with new attractive colors now offered to the riders. And the quality of plastics and switchgear used is comparable to a bike twice from its real value. There aren’t any loose wires to be seen in the bike, and we found the seamless uniform welds all across the trellis frame.
G 310 GS Features
There are lots of major updates on the BS6 version of the G 310 GS is the new LED face. It gives the same look as, G 310 R, and offers better illumination than the older halogen unit. LED turn indicators add to the premium look of the adventure motorcycle. Span-adjustable levers are a welcome addition to the motorcycle. The only dated bit on the bike remains the LCD dash, which doesn’t get any form of smartphone connectivity.
