No great surprise really, the big GS is apparently the best selling motorcycle in Europe. The 310 will be selling in the massive "emerging" and Asian markets (its real target markets).



I'm sure Europeans will soon enough be forced to recognise the benefits of a lightweight bike that can comfortably cruise in excess of the speed limit whilst going twice as far on a gallon as the boxer, with concomitant reduced emissions.
G0MYW and Tukemeister like this.

Awesome. I think the 310 is far more successful than BMW expected. It is attracting more than just new riders looking for an "entry" bike.

who wants to ride those big 1200cc elephants? it used to be into big bikes until I realized how wrong it is. big bikes are very nice on highways, but to ride them on bad roads is suicidal, or purely stupid. the whole idea of what actually is an "ADVENTURE' bike is about to change...

I do have a big boxer, a 2016 RT version. That bike hates any surface that is not paved. The 310 suites us perfectly for dual sporting and we haul it right on the back of our class B RV for longer trips

I had actually a discussion on Tiger 800 forum, where I was saying that it is not an 'adventure' bike, but sport-touring one and people were saying that it all depends how you use the bike. well, I personally do not feel at all confident riding him on bad roads. and why to use such a powerful bike and ride on 2nd gear in such situations? He feels like a king on good roads, but like a cow in the mountains. I have several bikes that are much better for going into high mountains, and the small gs is the most comfortable and has enough power to do what he is supposed to do

as you love riding, you need to love you bike
