stop feeding the trolls gents.  just ignore the retorts as you pretty much know what will be said anyway and I have a feeling that if their chirps fall on deaf ears they will diminish and mostly fade away.

so lets have some self control and if it bothers you, try counting to 10 and read another thread!

Are you herewith admitting that discussion with 2SD is a waste of time as he is just an internet troll?

Okay.  Thanks for the warning and advice.

The GS has got the same dash as the R.
10 000rpm redline. I see some place for a 12V plug  8)

  • I think it's pretty awesome that they still have a gear indiction, given that it requires a sensor (cost) on such an entry-level bike. Maybe the sensor was already required for some other task, or maybe the position sensor is cheaper than a simple neutral switch.
  • A fuel level guage, which again requires a sensor instead of just having a reserve indicator.
  • Look at the clamp holding down the handlebar... why not just a (cheaper) u-clamp like most bikes have? Why such a large one, embossed with the logo?
  • Just above the pegs, where the frame sections meet, they cover it with plastic, fastened with screws. Functionally this is probably not needed at all, it seems to be just a frame protector. But it's a nice touch.
  • All the body panels are held on by torx bolts, like their other bikes. They could've saved costs and used plastic studs, with just a strtegic bolt here and there? Ala japanese bikes?
  • The centre nut of the triple clamp... could have been a plain nut. But rather it is a nicely made polished one.

I see a lot of attention to detail here... the typical german trait. :thumleft:

yeah I must agree. Here are some more details:

Quote
Continental LCD dash includes rpm, speed, gear selected, odo plus twin trips, engine temperature, fuel level and range, average fuel consumption, average speed and a clock


I'm sure RockFox / Flying Brick and the like are going to be selling a lot of stuff for this bike. (and the Versys 300 Honda / CRF250)
I see in the UK there are crash bars, bags, sump guards and so on already in production. (Most have started it based on the 310R frame etc.)

Has anyone seen any info on 2-up riding with these little bikes? I know it is not necessarily one of the main focal points on these bikes, but I would like to know if I wanted to take the GF to Die Hell for a weekend, we'd make it?

Anything is possible.  :biggrin:







a 310R with pillion. The GS will probably be more roomy.

The rest of the equation is an unknown.
If I go for a CRF250 / 310GS / Versys / 390 Adventure I surely won't be adding anyone to the back. They can take their own bike.   :biggrin:  Cheaper than 1x 800cc and up

BMW Motorrad days 2017... July 8. So they are out there and rideable. Seems September still looks like a realistic date then.



Apparently Tractive suspension is already developing after-market suspension and Rally Raid on Spoke wheels, bash plates and luggage options. (Using the R as a early base). These where the same guys who collaborated to make the Extreme level 3 kit for the CBX500 that added a 19" front wheel more suspension travel etc.

Then in that vein check out this video and look at the G310"Rock" bike at 0:20



I think this bike lends itself to possibly be great platform to build on.

I thought that we established many pages ago that this a BMW built factory,  run by TVs in India. Of het ek dit mis?

When I was in India the TVS was the undisputed super-bike of India and an obvious cut above the other locally assembled bikes. I have to point out that this was not a particularly high bar  and the the TVS was selling for not that much more than a Chinese bike at the time.
