BMW G310GS Design and colors
The highlight which has made our jaws drop is that the traditional GS styling can be seen here. Same color schemes pattern. Tank shrouds, a protruding beak and a large luggage carrier at the back to carry everything you ever need to stay on the road forever (if you wish to)

Similar chassis is visible. What we can see is raised USD front fork, 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels with dual sport tyres. Similar brakes with ABS is most likely to come. Monoshock at the rear is similar but like the front, the rear will be most likely be raised.

2016 BMW G310GS India Engine and Mileage
The engine is set to be the same. The engine will be tuned for mid and low range torque and will compromise slightly on the top-end power most likely.
