What BMW's new G310R adventure bike could look like

Meet the F310GS (possibly)

BMW MOTORRAD'S UK director Phil Horton recently confirmed plans for a GS-style G310R derivative, and here's how Indian bike site RushLane thinks it will look.

The rendering takes the G310R chassis and 313cc single-cylinder engine and re-imagines it packaged as a smaller sibling to the F700GS.

It's probably not far off the mark, with the possible exception of the exhaust, which appears to exit the front of the cylinder, unlike that of the reverse-cylinder G310R. 

It's expected to be called either the F310GS or GS310R, according to RushLane. Like the G310R, it will be manufactured by TVS as part of a partnership between the Indian firm and BMW. 

Horton is reported to have said he hopes the mini adventure model will be launched next year. 

Of course we're still waiting for the launch of the G310R itself.
