Happy to hear of a more modest BMW bike

Always liked BMW, and while I can appreciate their fast cars, I just don't care about having a rocket underneath me when riding a motorcycle. I use it more for riding around town, not on the highway. Can't go that fast in Toronto traffic.

So I'm looking forward to getting to know this bike better, or else I may go to Ducati.

What would be the Ducati equivalent? What would you suggest?

You won't really know until you've test ridden one. Don't count the g310r out yet.

Good point.

Riding a bike it what it comes down to. Too many of us are guilty of running with what we see on paper and going no further.

For all we know we might be content with the G310R and won't see a need to venture out to something better or what we thought would be.

No I can tell you without a DOUBT that a used monster will have more useable torque around town then the G310R...

And if that's what you really want, go get it

Numbers alone should be able to indicate that especially when numbers compared to the G310R are distanced apart quite a bit, enough for what would be a noticable difference.

I'd prefer a new bike since I would like the warranty and to hopefully evade any mechanical problems .
