Back to BASICS. Some riders start out with a basic bike, then later, as their riding abilities grow or the range and scope of their riding needs expands, they move up to a larger or more specifically purpose-built model. That’s why bikes such as this BMW G310R are generally called “entry level” models. The classification takes nothing away from the quality of the build or the FUN that can be had riding one, it’s merely descriptive of the niche they fill in the marketplace. For many folks, however, a basic, standard model like this fulfills the rider’s needs perfectly and no further upgrading is required. We like standard models because there is so much you can do with them: customizing, modifying, accessorizing to exactly suit the kind of riding experience you want to have — a travel bike, a commuter, a weekend escape machine, or whatever you envision. When you’re ready for that, of course, our Parts & Accessory team is here to help with knowledgeable advice. Did you know that the G310R was rated #1 out of 135 competitors in its class on motorcycle.com? That’s certainly potent testimony to what this machine can do. But no matter how YOU intend to use it, this most basic of BMWs can be your ideal Ticket to Ride.
This G310R was purchased just over ago at Bob’s. It’s a great-looking Strato Blue Metallic roadster that’s not only in great mechanical and cosmetic condition, it still has almost two years remaining on its factory 3-year, 36,000 mile warranty! What a perfect opportunity to get started on a BMW. It’s lightweight and nimble, with a 34 horsepower, torquey, single cylinder motor that behaves in sporting fashion and feels as much fun as it does capable and controlled. A great runabout in the city or suburbs, but also a total pleasure out on the twisting ribbons of country blacktop. Do you want to take it on the highway? No problem. It’s got all the power, precise handling, and compliant suspension you need to guarantee your confidence. There’s nothing stopping you — and that includes the price point. Can you imagine owning an almost-new BMW for a price this LOW? What are you waiting for?
This bike runs flawlessly. It has had all its prescribed maintenance done right and on schedule. When it came back to us in trade, we gave it our thorough safety and performance evaluation and found no issues whatsoever. You should know: our top technicians leave no stone unturned when they examine pre-owned bikes that are heading to the showroom floor: every component and performance aspect is checked out, first on the lift, and then as part of a critical test ride. Finally, for the formal seal of approval, the bike goes through the tough Maryland Safety Inspection. This one, of course, passed without a hitch.
On the cosmetic side of things, well, you can see for yourself: the bike is gorgeous. But we’ll happily point out its very minor flaws because you might not otherwise ever notice them. There is a very small scratch in the paint on the front fender. It’s negligible. There is also a bit of a scuff – about one centimeter long – on the black plastic chain guard. You can see it in the photo. The only other blemish worth mentioning is that there is some minor discoloration in the flat black paint on the rear section of the muffler. It’s actually quite typical wear. Otherwise, our in-house pro detailer went to work on this motorcycle to bring out its best. He cleaned in every crevice and polished it to a glowing luster, so that it now shines as good as new. The ONLY thing that will make G310R look better is the beaming smile on your face when you ride it home.
This G310R comes with two keys, the factory tool kit, and original owner’s books. Because it is in such excellent condition, this motorcycle is offered as a Bob’s BMW Advantage Certified Bike. That means that, as its next owner, you are entitled to a service loaner at no charge on your first visit, plus numerous other benefits.
