The G 310 GS gets a new Strato Blue Metallic colour with a yellow GS badging on the fuel tank. The beak-shaped mudguard actually gets the colour, while the rest of the motorcycle comes in a matte grey colour. The under seat panels and the frame remain blacked out and the rear luggage rack gets brushed metal finish.
