It sounds like nothing but good news for BMW, except when the time comes to build a smaller sibling. The Bavarians have had success with F650 and F800 variants (single and parallel twin, respectively), but now the time has come for a genuinely small GS. The G310GS uses an Indian-made TVS Apache engine—in fact, most of the parts are sourced from India—to create a burly little 30-hp adventure bike. BMW is hoping the mighty GS name will carry this little bike into success as well. But as handsome as the G310GS is, I learned as soon as you turn the key and start riding there are some hurdles to clear.
