So that's why India didn't make it onto the list of countries where the G310R is being launched. I would assume BMW would want to launch the G310R in India along with everyone else since it's such a large market.
I'll be one of those people waiting a while after the initial release to see if riders are seeing any problems with the bike. Small things can go wrong and then you're bike will be at the shop more than on the road.
Some people may clock in huge mileages without any problems and then you have those who get a bad egg and have to constantly repair things on their bikes. Not saying other brands don't have the same problem but it's just more common with BMW.
Might be why a lot of people have been preferring to go the Japanese route, after all you see so many of them on the road. But it's when you start to go higher up the CC range that you might want to venture elsewhere, like Ducati.
RushLanes says BMW is preparing for the October festive season and they're going to introduce a whole range of bikes to the India market including the g310r. Maybe we'll hear more about their future plans there. other bikes to be imported over will include the NineT, K1600GTL, S1000R, S1000RR, S1000XR, F700GS, F800GS, F800R, R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure.
If the GS models prove to be popular, maybe India will get the mini GS too.
There's plenty of options if you want higher cc bikes but BMW is trying to expand the sub 500cc lineup, not too many options out there right now especially when it comes to off-road/touring bikes like the GS.
