2021 BMW G 310 GS is revealed: revised design, LED and new clutch
BMW launched in Europe and Asia the new 2021 G 310 GS, its 313cc crossover / adventurer model. It arrives with revised design, new electronic throttle controller, new clutch and Full-LED lighting.
The 2021 BMW G 310 GS brings small changes in the design, mainly in the front optical, and in the “nozzle”. In addition, the model features LED lighting (headlights, flashlights and turn signals).
The model received two new versions: Rally and ’40 Years GS ‘edition. The Rally version has a red painted frame and a central front cover of the tank in metallic blue.
The ’40 Years GS ‘edition, on the other hand, is based on a famous historical model in the BMW GS history – the R 100 GS. Consequently, it is in black and yellow – with the basic color in black and yellow graphics on the side panels of the tank.
For use in the new 2021 BMW G 310 GS, the engine has been equipped with the so-called “electronic throttle grip” (electromotive throttle controller) and now offers an even more sensitive throttle response.
The automatic increase of the idling speed at the start also prevents a possible sudden stalling of the engine.
Same engine, new clutch
The self-boosting anti-hopping clutch is also new. It reduces the engine’s drag torque and provides a significant increase in steering safety – particularly during braking maneuvers involving simultaneous downshifting. It also offers significantly reduced operating forces at the clutch lever.
The engine remains the same 313 cm³ single cylinder, capable of generating up to 34 HP of maximum power and 2.9 kgfm / 29Nm of torque.
