INTRODUCTION: Big Hello from INDIA

Big hello to Everyone!
Nasir from Bangalore, India. Got the Racing red G310gs for about 5 months now and have been happily riding. Covered about 8000kms so far and the experience has been a mixed bag. Love the bike for the supple ride, soft suspension, looks, relatively light weight, robust build and upright posture. Would ideally liked to have a bit more power and less vibrations (esp. around 6k rpm). Few niggles like shaky headlight, multiple battery and alternator failure issues etc have been bothering a lot of riders here in South India. We have a whatsapp group here in Bangalore with approx 130+ riders and many of them have been having electrical issues, which raises question on long term reliability of these bikes. Barring these few issues, the bike is joy to putter around, esp on the back country roads.

Hello Nasir, welcome to the group! Please tell all your whatsapp friends about this group here, the more the merrier.

Actually, I would not say the electrical and other issues the bikes have are indicative of longer-term reliability, but more of insufficient design and development. The same is true for new car models, newly built homes, anything newly designed really. Once BMW sorts out structural fixes, together with the Indian manufacturer, and those fixes make it onto the bikes, we should be good to go for a long time.

Happy riding!

Welcome to the forum buddy. Nice to see you here. Each time I see 310GS in a scenic backdrop, I feel I should have picked up the GS over the R, anyway, it happens with many. May be that thought will change when I have my R clicked in a similar backdrop. Hope to see more action from Bangalore riders with active discussions and feedbacks here
