BMW has upgraded the G 310 GS with a set of new colours that are striking to look at. The BMW G 310 GS ‘Style Rallye’ features a black base colour with contrasting blue and red paintwork.
Additionally, one can notice the bigger ‘GS’ logo on the fuel tank and also the Rallye sticker label. Another notable visual change is that the tubular frame is now painted red, unlike the older bike that had a black-colored frame.
Regretfully, BMW hasn’t outfitted the G 310 GS with a TFT display, like the one on its platform relative, the TVS Apache RR 310. Instead, it continues to use an LCD, full-digital screen.
Barring the paint systems, the rest of the body panels, be it the container, BMW GS-correct beak, and also wheels are like as on the BS4 G 310 GS.
