Also found a video of it from Motorcycle.com ! Not much info but it's just a preview video I guess

Going to need a rear mud guard and a rear fender delete, then the G310GS will be perfect. Gotta love that brushed metal look.

The bimmer blue I think would look better than the red. It'll shape it in a different way (if that makes sense).

Certain colours make a vast difference to the way the bike looks.

It's because they didn't fully paint the beak blue and instead added some decals on top of the white for contrast. The GS will definitely need a fender eliminator, a larger windshield and a nice set of knobbies.

One important thing about the red is it wasn't done in a ways that takes away from BMW or comes off as trying to be like another brand. But like others here, at the end of the day I need blue going on, it's just the BMW thing to do. Much like other brand to color correlations.

BMWs become so much more significant when they come in that white, blue, and gray configurations. I would try to get a matching blue rim stripe though.

As Expected, the G 310 GS will be built alongside the G 310 R at the TVS plant in Hosur and it'll be launched in the second half of 2017 in India. That's a long wait for the rest of the world.

Those are boot protectors that help keep the passenger's boots from getting caught in the rear wheel.
Thanks ! That was actually bugging me for a while trying to figure out what the heck they were, new to bikes so I appreciate the insight :)

Just found this picture of the G310 GS' lines. I like how smooth and linear it looks, so no odd angles jutting out of the tank to put pressure on me when I lean forward.

That's a pretty cool picture. You're right though, the lines do look very streamline. See the angle of the wind screen relative to the tank? A great separation.

With how far the tail extends thanks to the luggage rack, a fender delete is probably unnecessary from an aesthetics standpoint. From the looks of that windscreen line, it may be at the perfect height to deflect the wind from most riders unless you're tall and over 6 foot.

Still rather have a fender eliminator regardless but it just won't be priority for me, rather spend that money elsewhere on things I actually need. With how nice bike designs have evolved, a reduction in people going for fender eliminator kits has follows. These days not as many people are quick to put one on
