Wake up with a smile on your face. Because every day is an opportunity to try something new – with the BMW G 310 R. The complete package has everything you need and now comes with a modern daytime running light. It is an intuitive, agile ride thanks to the optimised engine with Ride by Wire and slipper clutch, whether you are off to work, to an appointment, or out of the city. Experience the manoeuvrability, easy handling, and sportiness of the G 310 R and surpass yourself with it every single day.
HIGHLIGHTS FOR DYNAMIC RIDING ENJOYMENT
The strength of the G 310 R is in its lightness and agility. The 313 ccm single-cylinder four-stroke engine not only delivers fun in the big-city tumult, but also when you are redefining the city limits when changing corners quickly.
Experience the agility
The unconventional single-cylinder engine has a special design: The cylinder head has been rotated 180 degrees backwards, which pushes the vehicle’s centre of gravity towards the front wheel. This makes the G 310 R more agile and easier to control. With the new electronic gas system – Ride by Wire – the throttle response is also always stable. And the self-reinforcing slipper clutch makes switching gears child's play when you are stuck in heavy traffic. In addition, thanks to the effective combustion and secondary air system, this bike meets the strict Euro 5 standards.
Good looks run in the family because the G 310 R carries the DNA of the BMW S 1000 R. With its bare design, it wears its heart on its sleeve and thus stands for lightness, precision, and a pure riding experience. The Sport style emphasises the unmistakable racing look of the bike in particular. The engine area now comes in Titanium grey metallic. It gives the G 310 R its modern finish in combination with the footrest plates and pillion passenger grips.
Ergonomic handlebar and control elements
Guarantee an exceptional ride experience and give you full view of the big-city tumult.
LED headlights and LED indicators as standard
Turn night into day: You not only have a better view, you can also be seen better by other drivers.
Available in three different sizes as a special accessory so that you can move through your city in comfort.
Prevents the tyres from locking in precarious situations, such as on wet pavement.
Cast aluminium wheels
With their turbine design, these wheels ensure that the bike runs quietly in all road conditions.
Precise single-cylinder engine
Designed with Ride by Wire, the throttle response is more effortless, making the engine respond better and allowing you to dose out the power more precisely.
Adjustable clutch and brake levers
Reduce the distance to the handlebar by up to six millimetres over four levels – for more safety and control.
High-quality aluminium swing arm
Lightness and stability guaranteed whenever you snake through the city traffic.
