What is BMW GS 310 Adventure?
As the name suggests, the BMW GS 310 Adventure is basically the adventure based derivative of the much talked about upcoming BMW G310R streetbike. Few months back, rumours were that the company is working on the adventure touring version of the G310R. Recently, we have received an interesting bit which states that the 313cc adventure bike will make its entry to the Indian shores somewhere in 2017. The bike shares most of its elements with the G310R except for the adventure inspired bits like the long travel suspension, raised front mudguard and much more.

Why BMW GS 310 Adventure is an important product for the company?
With the gradually growing scope of adventure bikes in India, manufacturers have now understood the importance of the respective segment. It was a matter of few years that the companies refrained from bringing such motorcycles in fear of poor sales. Hero took the bold step and launched the 150cc Impulse followed by Royal Enfield that launched the bigger Himalayan a few months back. Seeing this, the BMW GS 310 Adventure will bridge the gap between the two and will cater the audience that has been craving this segment and price bracket since long. As the Indian conditions are often worse for riding, thanks to the broken surfaces and potholes, an adventure bike within an affordable price can really do wonders in the market. And if it is a BMW, what else one can ask for! Also Read - 'America Loves India', Donald Trump Thanks PM Modi For Independence Day Greetings
BMW GS 310 Adventure Features

The motorcycle will come assisted with long travel suspension for better suspension duties than the standard road bikes. Additionally, the raised front fender protects the rider from mud splashes that happen during high-speed riding in waterlogged surfaces. The bike will also feature a wide carrier at the rear for accommodating luggage on the go. Other features include a tall windscreen and a raised rear end.
