This is going to be my first bike, maybe the R or GS variant and it's going to be a step up from the 125 cc bikes the learning centers use.
Do you think there will be a vast difference between the CBR250 and the G310R ? What did you have planned for a next bike before the G310R ?It's my second bike, used to have a CBR250. So the G310R is my next step up, not as crazy as I had originally planned (bigger CC's) but it's a step in the right direction. Plus jumping to bigger CC's right away brings with it some risk.
If it proves to be a profitable product for BMW (which I think it will be) then with the next generation version we can expect that but don't wait on it, get something else if you must, otherwise you'll be waiting a very long time.I feel like the G310r should have more of a lower end torque delivery for getting up to cruising speeds whilst the CBR250 should have more of a top-end. That being said it won't have a huge top end, but more in terms of comparison to the G310r
7500 is what the G310R we know currently will hit. No idea how that will improve over time and the GS version that was just released gets the same.It should... what rpm range would you think is ideal for it to hit peak torque ?
FJ09 is really starting to appeal to me. Very interested and at this point i'm just waiting to see one in person. I'm like you, into having a range of bikes. It's either that or I wait a bit more and get the Ducati Supersport 939.If I go ahead and get the 310GS it will be my second bike. Currently have a little Honda MSX,which will be keeping the new bike company in th garage. Looking for a bigger bike to go further afield on now.
I had been looking at an old BMWF650, or a Yamaha MT07 or 09. But I'm preferring the look of the new baby GS.
What road oriented bikes have you had the chance to ride?Most off-road riders will inevitably take a spill, including me, and I'd rather not squat lift something that's four times my weight if I don't need to. And the luggage rack that it comes with will give me somewhere to lift from compared to the R model.
Just can't wait to test ride one and see how it compares to a road orientated bike.
Have you thought about the 650GS before?It'll probably be a year at least before I can take delivery here. But the F800GS will keep me happy until then.
