BMW G310R Height Reference

My main concern because I'm such a vertically challenged individual, is the size and if I'll be able to even tippy toe it. But here's a review of the G310 R that goes over more than just the height reference, but a little bit about the bike itself as well.

The review wasn't much. But this is good for a height check, especially for smaller people. Really want one of these though

Hard to tell since we don't know how tall she is but she did post up what could be the Canadian pricing of around $5500 CAD.

She said she was 5 feet tall if I can remember in the video correctly

At 5 foot, that's not bad, it's quite rare to come around someone even as short as she is that is into riding, so overall most short riders shouldn't have a problem with it. Once these are out in good volume, i bet that with a poll we'll see there are more shorter riders gravitating to the G310R than other bikes.

I'm not too sure, I think the new Ninja 300 was quite short as well. Shorter than the G310r if I'm not mistaken by the looks of it ?

The new Ninja 300 has a seat height of 785mm, so if the 300 is shorter than the G310r then you'll have a seat height lower than that. I think 5 foot in height is the minimum of the G310r since she's on her tip toes especially for new riders.

Also, she said $6-7k in CAD for the G310r when it does come out in January of next year. A bit before riding season starts instead of the end of it so that may be a smart move on BMW's end.

So the Canadian release date has been pushed back from September to sometime around January next year. I assume the same may apply to the U.S. release date too.

Why do you think she said you wouldn't go across the country on it? The g310r seems like a versatile bike that you can tour with, just need to make a few small adjustments.

It definitely looks like a bike I would take for long distances. You need a ton of power, and it'll be able to manage the outdoors very well. I don't see anything wrong with it in that aspect.

Pretty sure you meant don't need, but aside from that. I don't think she really knows much about it in general. The video was basically useless other than for a height reference
