Did you bring up the India delay? Not too sure if that would affect the UK or not but I thought they were the first ones that were supposed to get it

So at the latest for your dealer would be near the end of April assuming nothing goes wrong with production and delivery. That's not too far away and I assume all dealers now know the delivery schedule for their store.

Ok,no i hadn't mentioned the delay in the India launch,so i've just called them & they say their delivery schedule is still showing 17th April & they have had no notification of a delay,so that's all the info i have.
Also i have only very recently become aware of the G310,i hadn't realised it was originally announced more than 12 months ago,has there ever been an official reason for the long production wait?

No "official" announcement. But the word on the Internet is that there was some problem with one of the sourced components, which was only discovered late in the production process. And BMW decided to bite the bullet and either find another source, or remake all of the faulty components.

I have no idea if that's true. But that's the word.

I thought it was delayed in India because of the lack of a dense dealer network. Everywhere else should be fine when it comes to the release date.
We've been waiting for a long time since the g310 models were first announced and I have no idea why BMW took so long to release a product that appeals to a wide range of riders.

Local Dealer called today,G310R is in the showroom to view.:grin2:,i'll try to get in Tomorrow.
During the conversation i realised just how true my forum name is,i think i'm too old to have a dealer test ride,because of the insurance restrictions:frown2:

This is news to me too. :surprise: I can understand there being an age restriction if you're too young to even get a license. That's the first time I've heard of this. Is it your own insurance that's the problem or the dealership's insurance?

I asked at both a Yamaha & a Kawasaki dealer(same company different premises)their age limit is 70,when i asked the BMW rep about age restriction with their insurance,he said there was an upper limit,but didn't know the age,he said he'd enter my licence & see if it would accept it.
I haven't been to view the bike yet,so we'll see.
Just as aside you also can't rent a Harley if you're over 69,but don't know about test rides.

On Saturday I was at last able to see and sit on this G310R. The overall quality was enough to convince me to place an order for a G310GS. Ha! My frustrating wait continues... 😳

It's a deeper blue than what I was expecting since a lot of camera filters were making it looking blindingly blue. Did they give you a shipping date?

The blue 310R seen in the video was an 'almost sold' unit and they were awaiting delivery of their one other allocated bike - which has to be registered as a demo in the beautiful motorsport white. Frustratingly for the dealership, at present, their next allocation of 310R's might not be until July and unlikely to be alllocated any more until later in the year. The 310GS I ordered does not yet show a delivery date. The salesman was honest enough to say that anyone claiming a delivery date for a GS at this stage is most likely to be bluffing. Realistically I'm thinking (hoping) it'll be July or August.

Edinburgh BMW reckons end of July for the GS. This was when j was chatting to them about organising a test ride of both the R and the GAS on the same day.

At least that's not too long of a wait, but it'll be down to how many each dealer is allocated and if you've already put down a deposit for one. If they're really that low in supply then I may not be able to get one this year.

The wait may seem long, but at least it's not as bad as India. Heard their G310R launch has been pushed to the end of this year and maybe even next year. Supplies for us may be limited, but we're still getting them.
