The new BMW G 310 R – the first BMW roadster under 500 cc, one cylinder, low weight, powerful dynamic performance, which embodies the pure essence of a BMW roadster. It has neither too little nor too much of anything. Practical in the best sense of the word, it offers precisely what is needed – for dynamic performance and comfort, both in Urban or Freeway situations.
Sophisticated ergonomics and an easy ride response.
The new G 310 R offers a distinctly relaxed riding position for a stress-free and lasting riding experience. All switches and controls are simple and easy to use.
Its ultimate agility always remains neutral and predictable. It masters any bend or turn you can throw it into with ease, reassuring confidence without any loss of comfort. Extremely compact and with a broad spectrum ranging from comfortable to sporty and dynamic, the new G 310 R simply opens up a whole new world of experience in its segment when it comes to ride response.
The new G 310 R pulls very strongly through all the gears, and all the way to over 100 km/h in fourth. More importantly, you can cruise at 120 km/h on the highway and when you decide to overtake other road users, it will actually still accelerate, even in 6th.
It sports a rigid tubular steel frame, upside-down fork and long swing-arm for a high degree of ride stability, solid steering response and sound handling. In terms of suspension, the new G 310 R has a solid, highly robust tubular steel frame in grid structure with bolt-on rear frame.
Even with some hard riding, the average consumption on the G 310 R is a very decent 4,3 litres per 100 km. This suggests that a range of around 275 km per tank, will be easily achievable. At my weight of 105kg, and 6ft 2, this little roadster could get up to 140km/h with ease before it red-lines at 10,000rpm.
Having used Yamaha SR250s for years, the time has come to upgrade their fleet by replacing the old with something new and different. Various other brands were looked at and tested, and in the end, the BMW Motorrad package just seemed to make common and perfect sense:
- 2 Year Warranty
- 3 Year Road-Side Assistance
- 10 000km/12 Month Service Intervals
- Priced at R62 990
The deal was closed by SuperTech BMW Motorrad in Pinetown, with Alex as the Sales Consultant, taking care of every detail in delivering the next generation of messenger bikes to Turners Shipping.

It is herewith confirmed that Turners Shipping is the first company, to purchase and utilise the BMW G 310 R as a messenger bike in South Africa. Don’t think for a minute that this relegates the image of this little bike in any way, on the contrary, it very much enhances the confidence in the brand. For a respected and reputable company such as Turners Shipping to invest in a proper motorcycle, is a step in the right direction – a step into the future.
