BMW Motorrad's family of GS adventure bikes is getting a new entry-level member. The G 310 GS, which has been unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan, is designed for light off-road use.

Distinguishing features include longer-travel suspension, a 'beak' that protrudes beneath the headlight and an upright riding position. The standard saddle height is 835 mm (32.9”), but an 820 mm (32.3”) low seat and an 850 mm (33.5”) comfort seat are optionally available.

Power is provided by a 313 cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine with four valves and twin overhead camshafts. Sitting inside a tubular steel frame, it's joined to a six-speed gearbox and a chain final drive.

Output is rated at 33 bhp (25 kW / 34 PS) and peak torque is 28 Nm (20 lb/ft). Combined with a fully-fuelled weight of 169.5 kg (373.7 lbs), those figures result in a modest top speed of 89 mph (143 km/h). Average economy according to the World Motorcycle Test Cycle is 84.8 mpg (3.33 l/100km).
