BMW finds strength in simplicity with its latest motorcycle, the G 310 R. The bike is a happy medium between too much and too little power. Think of it as the bike you don't think about, a bike to enjoy motorcycling in its purest sense. The versatile bike is the first BMW roadster under 500 cc and is powered by a 313 cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that puts out 34 hp at 9500 rpm. Styling is inspired by its big brother, the S 1000 R, and features a tubular steel frame, upside-down fork, long swing arm for stability and handling, a high performance brake system, and standard anti-lock brakes.
