BMW have announced an updated version of the G310GS, their small-capacity member of the world-conquering GS family. First launched in 2016, the baby GS now gets a number of tweaks to keep it up to date.

Firstly, the G310GS’s 313cc liquid-cooled engine is now Euro5 compliant and still produces an A2-friendly 33.5bhp - now controlled by a ride-by-wire throttle.

The clutch has been upgraded to a ‘self-boosting anti-hopping’ unit to reduce aggressive engine braking and lighten the lever (which is now adjustable, too).

Up front, a new LED headlight is brighter than before and BMW say a new connector does away with vibrations affecting the beam. This is joined by new LED indicators.

The baby GS has also undergone a modest facelift to match the bigger models. As well as the base white version, you can also now get the G310GS in Rallye colours with red and metallic blue elements, and in a "40 years GS" black and yellow. All three now have grey engine covers.

There’s no word yet on price or availability so check back on MCN for more information as we get it.
