Motorcycle.com - 2017 BMW G310R Review

I think this goes without saying that Motorcycle.com reviews really get in depth in terms power delivery, how it feels, specs, heck even history lol. There's also a huge gallery towards the bottom of the page. Check it out here. Motorcycle.com First Ride 2017 BMW G310R

Great review and they mentioned the various seat heights we can get with the g310r.
Stock: 30.9-inch
Higher seat: 31.5 inches
Lower seat: 30.3 inches

Nobody has to worry about flat footing anymore.

Only downside I can see is how porky it is at 349 pounds. The price point is similar to other models in the rest of the class, but that extra weight may put people off. We'll just have to see if you can feel the additional weight while riding or not.

the lower seat being around half an inch lower than the stock seat would definitely be a flat footer breaker. A lot of times all people need is that extra 1/4-1/2 inch

Not much you can do about the weight, but it still feels nimble at 349 pounds. It's more refined and polished compared to the baby Duke.
Some may complain about the ABS intervening too early, but this is more of a starter bike so they probably designed it to cut in before the tire locks up.

I'm just worried about dropping the bike and then needing to pick it up. Not sure if I can squat the bike's weight.
