VTR Motorrad is a Switzerland based customizer, so you can’t have this in India, at least for now
When we speak about custom motorcycles in India, the first bike which comes in our minds is Royal Enfield. But it is not always the case. This is a fine example of BMW G 310 GS motorcycle which is customized into a Heart melting Scrambler motorcycle. The guys who did this work are based in Switzerland and are called, VTR Motorrad. Brownie point, you can have a blurry view of the Alps behind the motorcycle (this was a bad joke though).
BMW G 310 GS is the smallest and most affordable GS motorcycle from the German manufacturer. The Adventure motorcycle is designed in such a way, that it is easy to ride in the city and even easier to glide in the countryside. Road or no road, the 310 GS is bound to put a smile on your face. Baby GS comes with alloy wheels which makes it a less of an off-roader. However, the long travel suspension will keep life easier and your spine intact on the rough patches (which are in plenty in our country).

BMW G 310 GS Custom Scrambler will rule the natural terrain with confidence
Speaking about the custom G 310 GS, it has made into a scrambler motorcycle with dedicated off-road tyres. In my opinion, spoked wheels could have taken the game forward for this custom. When I first looked at the pictures on Instagram, I couldn’t identify it until I saw the description which screamed that this one is a modified G 310 GS. It is named as LBT 31 which means Little Boy’s Toy. And it feels like one.
Soon someone in India will also make a BMW G 310 GS Custom Scrambler like this one.
LBT 31 retains the stock bike’s fuel tank, which turns out to be the main point of attraction for the stock bike too. The headlight is changed to a small round one with a yellow lens. The Front mudguard is changed to a lighter one too. However, the Golden USD forks are retained (why would you touch an already excellent suspension setup).
A single biscuit color seat looks comfortable. The pillion seat is entirely replaced with a luggage rack. Monoshock at the rear is painted black and the engine cover is now metallic brown in color which looks cool. There is a front cowl with number 31 and tank flaps are pointy which appeals visually. The subframe, on the other hand, is painted in brown color.

There is no word on Engine tuning. But we feel it is left untouched. The presence of a free flow exhaust might have upped the performance a bit. Powering the stock G 310 GS is a liquid cooled, 312cc, single cylinder engine. The powerplant pumps out healthy 33 bhp and 27.5 Nm of torque. Paired to a 6-speed gearbox, the stock bike provides a sensible riding experience. The LBT 31 on the other hand, will take the game forward and rule the natural terrain with much more confidence.
BMW G 310 GS is price at Rs 3.49 lakh ex-showroom, Delhi.
