It's been awhile since the 310GS has been launched, anybody knows how BMW is doing saleswise on the model?
It is very quiet here wrt owners. I was thinking this would sell like hot cakes but sounds like the little Honda is a bit more popular?

Only quiet because every time someone wants to post something about it the same shit was said by the peanut gallery over and over. So the people went to other forums as they got bored.
I see quite few on the road. I use it for the odd commute when I have to go into town etc.
Done a gravel road or two. Great little bike. Bought it for my wife but life is hectic at the moment and she doesn’t get to ride it often enough but she loves it.

Good to hear she still loves it. I personally think it is a great little bike for what it is, I did not read of any problems and maybe the popularity will grow with time.

My son got a good job recently and I knew the first thing on the list would be a commuter. He has however decided on a Ninja 400 which sells for roughly the same price as the GS310. Benefit of the GS is that one can take it on gravel roads, but he will have little time off and 99,9% of his riding will be on good paved roads.

Service and resale should be better on the little GS as well.

Have also not seen much on the road, but then again it does quiet down in winter.

As for commuting options, I recon it is very difficult to beat the Honda NC series.

Great choice on the 400 Kawi. I was pushing for the KTM 390 but the fact of the matter is that we wanted to also do some gravel rides together and hence there is nothing but the 310GS or X300 Versys  that would have worked. We preferred the 310GS to the X300. 
The 310 can hold it's own on the road and does well on gravel. Awesome on consumption and is comfortable to ride. (my long legs get a little cramped after a while).
it's a great do-it-all little bike.

The 400 Ninja is well priced think about the same as the 300X and features a newly designed motor.
