2020 BS6 BMW G310 Twins Spied Testing in India
BMW Motorrad is readying an updated version of its entry-level motorcycles, the G 310 R and G 310 GS that will be introduced globally later this year. While there were speculations about the bikes getting the mid lifecycle refresh, the latest spy images from India and previously Europe confirm this development and the reveal a host of changes to the 2020 BMW G310 Twins. The latest spy shots of the 2020 BS6 BMW G310 twins reveal a new LED headlamp and cosmetic upgrades to the street naked motorcycle. The other big change will be a BS6/Euro5 compliant engine.
The 2020 BS6 BMW G310 twin spy images reveal a redesigned headlamp unit and a revised digital instrument console as well. The overall shape of the headlamp unit remains the same, but the cluster sports a new design for a sharper look. The side panels are new as well and a sense of sportiness to the bike, compared to the current version that looks all sobered up. The fuel tank also gets more creases and sharper lines, while the step-up style single seat and the five-spoke alloy wheels continue to feature on the motorcycles. The G 310 R also continues to offer a relaxed riding posture, while the G 310 GS differentiates itself with the raised handlebar and a small windscreen.
The BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS continue to sport gold finished telescopic forks at the front, and a monoshock unit at the rear. Other cycle parts including the disc brakes at either end and dual-channel ABS will be carried over.
The big update though will be with the engine on the 2020 BMW G310 Twins. The bikes will continue using the 313cc single-cylinder, fuel-injected motor that will be heavily revised to meet the new emission regulations globally. Power figures could be revised as well, while do hope BMW uses this time to improve on the delivery. In its current set-up, the engine produces 34PS and 28Nm of peak torque. It is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. BMW could also add a quick-shifter this time.
While the G 310 R and the G 310 GS have been decent sellers for the brand globally, the company has been struggling to sell the models in India in huge numbers. The company, however, sold over 800 units of the G 310 twins between January and March 2020, contributing over 80 per cent to the company’s overall motorcycle sales in India.
The BS4 stocks of the BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS were available at massive discounts of Rs. 75,000 to Rs. 85,000, and BMW could extend the same to the list price when the BS6 version arrives later in the year is what the rumor is as the price is going to be corrected and more value will be offered than before. The BS6 compliant motorcycles are expected to arrive around August or September this year. The bikes are built at the TVS plant in Hosur for the world.
