Chris Northover, Offroad Instructor and Stunt Rider, along with Product Manager at BMW Motorrad, Sabine Krojer go through and discuss the G310 GS in a bit more depth than what we have gotten so far. A few close ups of certain parts, a bit of explanation on how useful this bike is, etc.

No doubt.

From that stand point on a volume product that doesn't cost all that much, it's just about the only way.
The only thing that will change that is if a certain market holds a higher priority or means a better launch for them.

In a world where a dozen roses can be grown in Chile and shipped fresh to my local grocery store here in southern Oregon, where they cost me US$10, is a world where I have no idea what makes any economic sense. So betting where BMW is going to launch these things is not a bet I'm willing to make. But I bet it's going to be a while before I get to see one. :|

Won't be surprised if I see a G310 GS near the end of the riding season, at that point I may as well wait until the 2018 season before getting one. Better deals and it'll be warm enough for me to ride it home.

I've seen how cars are shipped around the country and I still don't understand why the shipping companies do what they do, the same is sure to happen with motorcycles.

I can't imagine what sales would be like if they brought it to the public at the end of the season though. Typically they would do it before, or early into the season so that people can get em' and ride em' opposed to having to buy it and then leave it in the garage

If the past is any indication of BMW's intentions, I think they'll just ship them as soon as they can, no matter what the season. I was the second delivery of the F800GS to my dealer here in Oregon back in October of 2008, while people in Europe had already been riding them for several months by then. I can't imagine BMW holding this new bike back just because people may not be able to ride them much right away. Besides, which one of us is going to allow a little rain and snow to keep us off of a brand new bike?
:laugh:

Snow will definitely stop me from riding and it's going to be a pain to clean all that salt off the bike after every ride. But the weather may not stop people from buying motorcycles, especially when there are deals to be had during the off seasons.
