G 310 R Australian Launch
17 August 2017
Meet BMW Motorrad’s Newest Family Member.
The new BMW G 310 R was recently launched to the Australian press and Dealer network in Airlie Beach, Queensland.
The new LAMs-approved model was a hit with the motorcycle journalists, with many impressed by the bike’s agile handling, smooth controls and dynamic engine.
Starting with a scenic ride through Airlie Beach and Prosperine, the group then headed to the Whitsunday Motorsport Club, where it was time to test the bike’s capabilities on the track.
Here’s some of the feedback from the Australian motorcycle media:
“With a fairly generous 131m of rear travel and 140mm at the front I certainly did not expect the excellent level of damping control that the G 310 R exhibited. Very impressive indeed”
“BMW certainly has an attractive and viable contender in the hotly contested LAMS learner market and it will be very interesting to see just how many sales it can steal from other brands”

“I think this bike steers beautifully, with a sweet, neutral feeling that encourages you to throw it around, whether you’re talking about difficult, wobbly walking-pace maneuvers, tight twisty corners or faster sweepers”
“The G310R’s friendly and forgiving character extends to its track capabilities. The bike feels as secure and nimble at footpeg-dragging lean angles as it does on the road. What a hoot!”
“The bike itself looks good, rides great and strikes me as a strong competitor. I suspect it will be a smash hit, and it won’t be long before we see a GS version that will send a rocket up between the trembling buttocks of the emerging mini-adventure market too”.
