Is it a proper GS? Our first impressions after the international press launch in Barcelona
G 310 GS is the smallest BMW GS in history. Designed by BMW in Munich, but built in India by TVS, the G 310 models mark a new chapter in BMW’s timeline. The first BMW motorcycles under 500 cc platform, built for the world market.
The new G310GS is marketed at the same as a luxury machine in Asia and as an entry-level, A2 category bike in Europe.
We attended the BMW G310GS International Press Launch in Barcelona and had the opportunity to test the bike on the beautiful roads of Catalunya. We were very curious to find out if it deserves the GS badge – the most powerful name among the BMW models – and we had some other questions. How does it ride? Can it handle some off-road? Does it have a proper build quality? We tried to answer some of these questions after a ride in the city, on the highway, on thrilling mountains roads, and on some gravel.
