Written by Rohit Tonapi

Along with updating its adventure touring sibling, the G 310 GS, with new colours, BMW Motorrad has some new colours and graphics for the G 310 R as well. The smallest Roadster in BMW Motorrad’s lineup now comes in two new colour options. BMW has also discontinued the previous colour options. Apart from the cosmetic changes, the mechanicals of the bike remains the same. 

Similar to how the G 310 GS is the entry point to BMW’s GS range, the G 310 R is the entry point to the brand’s Roadster range. In fact, the model is also the entry point to the BMW Motorrad brand. The G 310 R is the most affordable BMW motorcycle in India. As of now, there is no confirmation as to when the new colour options will come to India. However, they will likely arrive soon.

2023 BMW G 310 R – New Colour Options

As a part of the 2023 model year updates, BMW has given the naked bike two new colour options. These new colour options are – Racing Red and Polar White, and Racing Blue Metallic. The former comes under the ‘Passion’ style, while the latter comes under the ‘Sport’ style. 

The Racing Red features a red frame and red-coloured alloy wheels. Furthermore, apart from a few white panels and graphics, the complete bike adorns a red theme. On the other hand, the Polar White and Racing Blue Metallic is a small update over the older colour. It features the BMW M Motorsport colours and, like the Racing Red, also gets a red frame and red-coloured alloy wheels. The tank of the bike is coloured white, and there are bold graphics on the front shrouds. The panels flanking the rear seat also get similar graphics.

As the changes are only cosmetic, the mechanicals remains the same. Thus, it continues to use the same 313cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. As for the valvetrain, it uses a 4-valve DOHC setup. The motor makes 34 HP at 9,250 rpm and a max torque of 28 Nm at 7,500 rpm. 

The suspension and braking setup remains the same as the G 310 GS. However, it gets less suspension travel at both ends. The front suspension travel is 140 mm, and the rear suspension travel is 131 mm. The G 310 R also rides on 17-inch wheels with a 110/70 section tyre at the front and a 150/60 section tyre at the back. A seat height of 785 mm also makes it easier for shorter riders to get on the G 310 R.
