You have been good all year, so its time to retire your old motorcycle. Instead of adding up all the parts and time you have been neglecting, BMW has unleashed two new bikes for 2021. Packing big technology into a compact frame, the G 310 R has undergone a nice freshening. Making use of a water-cooled 313cc single-cylinder, it offers 34 horsepower and 20 lb-ft of torque. A new electronic throttle offers smooth idle transitions, and a revised clutch basket prevents hopping at low rpm.
For those who refuse to lose, the S 100 R is ready to race. After removing every ounce of non-essential weight, BMW touts this bike as having unpalalled dynamics. What started as saving 11 lbs in the drivetrain evolved into a new frame. Gears 4, 5, & 6 are taller to offer a more relaxed experience when cruising the backroads. This did not hurt performance, as you have 165 horsepower and 84 lb-ft of torque.
Because it all weighs less than 439 lbs, safety systems include ABS Pro, Dynamic Traction Control, and riding modes for bad weather. Developed for the World Superbike series, the computer snuffs out wheelies before you notice them, and the fuel maps make it one of the world’s most efficient liter-bikes.
