One of the more recent brand entrants is Zontes from China, which offers a variety of new adventure bikes in the 300-400 cc range. Yes, the Zontes 350T ADV has appeared on Car&Bike before, but this time it won’t be riding alone. It competes with the smallest ADV produced by the Bavarian company, the BMW G 310 GS!

Zontes 350T ADV vs BMW G 310 GS: Performance
Let’s get the numbers out of the way: The 350T ADV has a slightly higher displacement than the G 310 GS and produces about 4 bhp and 5 Nm more power. But because the BMW is a massive 21 kg lighter, the Zontes’ advantage in horsepower and torque is rendered meaningless. In addition, the baby GS has the significant benefit of an additional 47 mm of ground clearance. However, enough staring at the spec sheet. Ride time!
Both have unique designs
There is no denying that the Zontes 350T ADV has much more intimidating road presence. The GS is easily overshadowed by the visual bulk and the busy design with attention-grabbing graphics. In contrast to the GS, which appears much milder in comparison, the ADV beak, futuristic-looking front-end, thick guardrail, and slim twin exhausts give it much more drama and presence. Zontes’ specialty is seizing attention!
