BMW’s Pocket-Sized Naked Roadster: The 2021 BMW G 310 R

The G 310 R is a small-capacity roadster from European manufacturer BMW. It’s the smallest displacement motorcycle in the 2021 BMW line-up. Though it’s small in size, it’s big in personality. Designed to help reach the BMW Motorrad brand-name expand in other markets, the small but cool BMW has made a name for itself as a practical, fun-loving commuter bike that’s ideal for navigating the city streets.

The heart of the G 310 R is a potent liquid-cooled 313 cc single-cylinder engine. It produces a modest 34 horsepower and 21 lb-ft of torque. That power is transferred to the rear wheel via a six-speed constant mesh gearbox and a chain drive. All in, it can propel the little roadster to an impressive top speed of 90 mph. It’s also economical too, with 71 mpg.

What really makes the G 310 R a useful everyday motorcycle is the selection of quality features and components used. For example, the G 310 R uses a stainless steel exhaust system, cast aluminum wheels, USD forks, and BYBRE brakes. It also features BMW Motorrad ABS, LED lights, and adjustable rear suspension preload.

For 2021, the G 310 R is available in a number of color options: Pearl White Metallic, Racing Red, and Cosmic Black.

The 2021 BMW G 310 R starts at $4,945 USD / $6,750 CAD
