I will take a long test ride on one in the UK next year as that looks very interesting

That's the selling point as far as I am concerned Phil, I was thinking of a Honda CRF 250 in the UK but the spoke wheels with inner tubes is a big turn off.

The 310 R is £4290 and the CRF £4399 in the UK so the GS version shouldn't be much more

The BMW G310GS isn't too far away from Thai roads, probably early next year.
It will be made (assembled?) in India so, as with the KTM 390 Adventure, should be available at a reasonable price. Should be.
Bring it on!

This from 'Motorcycle Thailand'.

From 'Revzilla',

" Some suggested BMW might ask $10,000 (US). The good news is it will be around half that. BMW made sure the G 310 R came in under $5,000 (US), and execs said the GS would be "similarly attractively priced."

Interesting that the G310GS was released a few months ago yet there does not seem to be a 'Ride Report' available yet (there are a couple of phony 'ride reports').

Many people are asking the same question.
I've read that spoked wheels may be offered as an option.

I didn't think it was actually available yet Ron, BMW said the G310R was available last October but it was april this year before the UK dealers had any in the showrooms, the GS version is also a lot later arriving then what BMW said was its available date

You're right Colin.
The 310R is here in Chiang Mai but the G310GS, well that's quite a long wait ...

"At the BMW stand at the EICMA 2016, BMW announced a number of new riding machines. In India however, all eyes were on the new baby GS called the G 310 GS which was expected to be built in India. The entry-level adventure tourer was to be produced at TVS plant in Hosur alongside the G310R. While it wasn't known as to when the motorcycle would arrive in India, it has now been confirmed that the BMW G 310 GS will arrive only by the end of 2017. (India)

A Twitter user tweeted to BMW Motorrad asking whether the new baby GS would arrive along with the G 310 R. Turns out that the 310 R will arrive a lot earlier with an early 2017 launch while fans of the adventure tourer will have to wait a lot longer." (Tech.firstpost)

I phoned my local BMW dealer today to see if it was in yet as they said call back in august, its launch has now been put back to December, apparently because of a problem at the factory in India

And I called into the local BMW dealer here (Barcelona Motor) and they weren't even aware of the bike's existence! :confused:
They are selling lots of 310Rs though.

Did you mean to write 'September' Colin? Or I hope not 'August 2018'!!

Just spoke to the chap at Barcelona BMW in Chiang Mai, he seems to think the 310 GS is not coming to Thailand? Only the R version?????

Yes the BMW G310GS will eventually also be sold in Thailand, but not expect that to happy (sic) before 2018.

BMW Thailand has just launched the BMW G310R in Thailand which cost 199,000 THB (basic color) and in special color 204,000 THB."

We've just gotta wait and see.
It would be an interesting addition to the mix.

Finally the UK price has been revealed, £5100 about 220,000 Baht for non metallic colours.

I test rode a Honda CRF 250 last weekend and wasn't impressed at all, it had no low down pull, I think my KLX 250 was better in that department.

This weekend I hope to get over to my local BMW dealer and sort out a deal on the 310 GS and hopefully put a deposit down on one for when I get back home at the end of march.
They told me a deposit of £500 will ensure a bike will be waiting for me and the icing on the cake is if after a test ride on their demonstrator I don't want it they will return my deposit and let the next waiting customer have it.

Very good!
At least you wont have Barcelona Motor to deal with!

No problems buying a Bm here Ron, the dealers all have to abide by the law and not the law of their own making.
A two year warranty here is for the full two years not but we only give 90 days on batteries like I experienced when I bought one in Chiang Mai
