Following the recent release of this bike in India, BMW has the official launch for the 2021 BMW G 310 R in Europe locked and loaded with three new color options and some new features (including the obvious, Euro 5 engine compliance).
The new G 310 R features a Euro 5 compliant 313cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine producing 34 horsepower and 21 lb-ft of torque in a 349 lb package. With bikes like the KTM 390 Duke making such a big splash in the smaller displacement range market, BMW looks to dethrone the Austrians with their G 310 R and this version brings a few new features to hopefully get them closer to their goal.
This new edition comes with full LED lighting and the same anti-hopping clutch as found in the 310 GS variant. We also see the three new color options being: Polar White and Cosmic Black. Where’s the third? It’s the ‘Sport Edition’ that brings some R graphics with a painted red frame and wheels.
Pricing can be very spotty when it comes to European releases due to the sheer amount of different countries and their various importing laws. Currently, it appears like the bike will be for sale in Italy for €5,700 and £4,875 in the UK. With the bike already being available in Europe, it will only be a matter of time until we see an American release.
