Hello From Bangalore, India

Hello Everyone,
It's good to be here.

I'm from Bangalore, India, and I love small-capacity motorcycles.

Booked my G310R yesterday. Can't wait for the 10-odd days it will take for the bike to be with me.

Would be nice to see where BMW takes this platform in the future.

This is unrelated to BMW. What kind of presence does Hyosung motorcycles have over there and what have you heard. The sport bikes they make are GT250R, GD250R, and GT650R.


Trying to figure out what is going on with them.

2018 BMW G310GS White
2017 Hyosung GD250R Black/Gray
2016 KTM RC390
2014 Kawasaki Ninja 300 SE (sold)
2008 Hyosung GT250R (crashed)
199x Kawasaki Ninja 250 (engine failure)

Hyosung's Indian operations are currently being handled by the Kinetic Group (an Indian company which itself used to be a full-fledged two-wheeler manufacturer. They have an umbrella brand called Motoroyale which retails motorcycles from MV Agusta, Norton, SWM and FB Mondial). They have a fairly decent presence here. I don't see many dealerships in the city but there are still quite a few Hyosungs getting ridden around by helmetless guys in flip-flops.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on sourcing your bike. Have you been seeing many G310R's on the roads over in India?

Thank you! And yes, there are a lot of G310 Rs in India. There is a G310 owners' group in my city as well.

Most cities here are full of low capacity bikes and scooters, so yes, the 310 range fits right in.
