There are a LOT of 2018 used 310Rs for sale. I can get a white one with 2300 miles for 3400 plus tax and no fees from a private seller.
Is this a decent price or is it too high for the mileage?

This is a good price in my view, depending on general condition, extras or not etc. This is for the USA where it sounds like you are located. Offer $3K and point to some flaws or the fact there is more supply. There should be warranty left.

Ok. If you think you can do better then shop around some more. Perhaps he'll reconsider, or if you want, you can always go back later and buy it for that amount, provided he hasn't sold it yet. Negotiations are always tricky.

It all depends on how motivated you are in buying and how motivated he is in selling. 2000 miles is really nothing considering BMW provides 3 years/36,000 miles warranty.

There are a lot of them for sale, because people outgrow them really quickly and 2018 models have lots of issues. If you are looking for a used BMW look at a used 650GS or 700GS you will be much happier.

There are not many for sale around me... 1 out of 163 BMW bikes for sale in a 200mi radius (Craigslist) The one that was for sale was $4,650 with 735mi stainless Akra exhaust, 15T front sprocket (16 std) and TKC Tires (I wonder where the stock tires are)


I have one and it was $6,040.00 before Tax etc and the runin service was $320.00 so I will assume that the owner did this which is more than just an oil change where they also check and tighten steering head ( I can't remember term)


So, yes $3,400 is a good price. If I was selling mine I would ask more but I have an Akra Carbon fiber exhaust and an SW-Motech skid place Cerakoted in Gold.


Keep in mind that you will not lose as much if you ever sell. People are selling old 250 Ninjas (2008-11) for the mid 2,000's and some were only $2,999.00 new.


As long as it is in great shape, take it if you want one. It is still under warranty.

LOL. I own a Ducati 748, 999, GSZR-750R, etc....., and I havent outgrown the 310R.

I disagree with the 2018 having lots of issues. I daily commute, and no issues.

Yeah, I currently have a CBR1000RR, ST1300, and G310R, and probably add a dual sport in the future. I bought each of the current set in descending order of displacement. "Outgrowing" a 300+cc motorcycle is an absurd notion.

Different bikes are better suited to different missions. That's something that perhaps takes time and experience to understand.

The G310R is a reliable motorcycle. It's also an entirely new motorcycle built in a new facility far from BMW HQ, minor issues can reasonably be expected. Stator failures seem to be the most common fault and are still rare, we have a few anecdotal reports exacerbated by supply chain issues. The brake recall thing looks intesting but is still unfolding. I checked my vin yesterday and was all good..

The magazine blew an early production bike engine up just below 50k km I don't think that's either statistically significant or representitive.

Any dirtbiker will tell you too, everything has a life expectancy. Don't expect to flog the piss out of a 300cc single for forever without doing some work. Also don't expect a rebuild to be a big deal, again it's only a 300cc single.
