‘Lively’ is how this 313cc single might be described, pulling reasonably well from as little as 30mph in fourth gear, where the revs are at just over 3,000rpm. It doesn’t delight at being worked from that low in the range but it gets to 40mph soon enough and by then it feels positively perky.
That flexibility will clearly be useful for novices and commuters.
What it seems to be lacking though is a bit of what you might call ‘fiz’. The red line on the digital dash is at 10,000rpm. Between 8,000rpm and there, you find a very slight final surge in power but it doesn’t seem to relish being up there.
Compare it to Kawasaki’s 39hp Z300, a parallel-twin with a satisfying little power band that can keep you entertained all day. Or KTM’s single-cylinder 390 Duke, with some proper punch and 43hp.
The G 310 R’s engine may have a snazzy reverse cylinder with the exhaust coming out the back but it’s still a single, and not a very big one. In engine performance terms, it has more in common with Honda’s 31hp CBR300R or even Kawasaki’s 28hp Ninja 250SL/Z250SL than the big hitters in the sub-500cc market.
At fast motorway cruising speeds, you’re nearing the edge of its performance envelope, as you would be on those other single-cylinder machines. At over 60mph it’s getting vibey, so you sense it’s working hard.
And it makes that slightly agricultural sound of some small-capacity singles, not entirely unlike a lawnmower.
