Welcome to the forum.

Have you started shopping around for accessories and modifications as yet? Good time to do it while you wait especially since some brands might be informing the public of things to come once the bike is out. With that being said, are there any things you're on the look out for?

Nice! Which color did you get and is this going to be your first bike?

1. For accessories, i have no plan to buy anything before i do recieve the bike

2. I used CBR250R before, it was a nice bike but too much inconvenience when riding for a long period, lot of back pain.

I will get the blue color.

Will review the bike at soon as possible for you all!

Agreed. As nice as sports bikes look, they strain your back and is torture on your butt on long rides. Longest I've ridden on one is around 3-4 hours and I was in pain for a day or two afterwards. Just not the best for rider ergonomics.

Looking forward to your review.

Heard feedback like that of sportbikes way too often, it's one reason why I plan to get the G310R or something like it and then sometime down the road a sport bike for pure fun so when I get tired, I can stop, no obligation typically had with mon-fri commutes.

For some people the disease is so bad they have to get a 3-wheeler!

Heard riders could feel some vibration through the CBR250R stock seat at freeway speeds and you get kind of numb. I'm hoping the same won't occur with the g310r.

You can get an adjustable handlebar mount for a straighter riding position, paired with an aftermarket soft seat and you'll feel nothing but air.

If BMW is coming out with a mini GS, I assume Thailand would see it at dealership before NA. The wait is going to be painful while we keep ourselves updated with international news.

I might even be interested in that since the adventure market has always interested me and being someone that treks out to cottage country quite often a GS310R will be perfect for the roads up their and anywhere with similar terrain. But these days i`m seeing more and more of them in the city, I guess not everyone is using them as intended.
