BREAKING: BMW Launches A Range Of New Colours For The 2022 G 310 R And G 310 GS

BMW Motorrad has updated its entry-level Street and Adventure model range for 2022. All the updates consist of colour revisions, accompanied by a small premium in price, wherein both the G 310 R and G 310 GS get a premium of Rs 5,000 over their predecessor. Let’s dive right in, shall we?

What’s The Price? Who Are Its Rivals?

The 2022 G 310 R is priced at Rs 2,70,000, while the G 310 GS is priced at Rs 3,10,000 (ex-showroom, India). Despite the small price hike, the G 310 R continues to remain Rs 26,230 cheaper than its main rival, the KTM 390 Duke. Apart from the Austrian naked street bike, the G 310 R takes on the Bajaj Dominar 400 and the Honda CB300R


Similarly, the G 310 GS continues to remain Rs 27,043 cheaper than its main rival, the KTM 390 Adventure. It also takes on the Royal Enfield Himalayan and Yezdi Adventure.

What’s New?

The 2022 updates consist of only colour revisions, while the G 310 R was previously available in two shades, namely Cyanite Blue Metallic and Limestone Metallic, the German marque has discontinued both these colour options by introducing new shades, Passion Racing Red, Cosmic Black 2 and Sport Polar White/Racing Blue Metallic.

In the same way, the G 310 GS was earlier available in three shades - Polar White, Triple Black and Cyanite Blue Metallic. The 2022 update sees the introduction of new colours, namely Cosmic Black 3, Polar White/Racing Blue Metallic and Kalamata Dark Gold Metallic.

What’s Unchanged?

Well, apart from the colours, every aspect of the bike remains unchanged. Both the bikes remain powered by the 313cc, liquid-cooled, single cylinder engine developing 34PS and 28Nm. 

They both feature a tubular space frame, suspended on upside down forks and a preload adjustable monoshock. The G 310 R gets 140mm and 131mm of front and rear wheel travel respectively, while the G 310 GS gets 180mm suspension/wheel travel at the front and rear.

The G 310 R gets 17-inch alloys at both ends, wrapped in 110/70 and 150/60 section tyres at the front and rear. The G 310 GS gets a 19-inch alloy wrapped in 110/80 tyre at the front and a 17-inch alloy wrapped in 150/70 section tyre at the rear.

Both the bikes feature a 300mm single disc brake at the front and a 240mm disc brake at the rear, with the safety net of dual-channel ABS. They also get a list of features such as ride-by-wire, all LED lighting and adjustable brake and clutch levers.

What Should Have Changed?

While both bikes are available with a plethora of optional accessories like touring accessories, heated grips, 12V power socket and USB charging sockets, they continue to miss out on phone connectivity options.

Considering they both aspire to compete with their Orange Austrian counterparts, the G 310 R and G 310 GS with a quick shifter, traction control, cornering ABS and ride modes make it a much better proposition.

ZigSays

The entry-level twins by BMW are no longer exorbitantly priced as they once were. And now, even though the 2022 iterations of the naked street and adventure bikes command a slight premium, a mere colour option update does not justify its overall cost. The latest iterations of both bikes should have at least featured phone connectivity.
