Has anyone read anything concrete on whether the GS version has tubeless wheels or not?
One would think it is based on the rims being cast / non spoked.

I would easily tolerate tubes if this bike could only have spoked rims....simply because those mags looks kak.  :-[

Something about the looks of those mags remind one of the Swastika. :3some:

I must agree the rims look kak probably are kak and look exactly the same as the little road racer Bajaj, any D/S worth its salt would have spoked rims. Are they cast or riveted together ?
Just a note for the bike testers it would be interesting to find out the cost of all the fancy fairing parts in the event of an off in a rocky area, read gouges/broken plastics, this goes for all from AT to GS it would be a nice informative paragraph in a review.
A low speed off off camber damage to plastics on a 1200LC would probably be the cost of a good 2nd hand dirt bike  ( Honesty section - each fall should be a separate claim   :eek7: :deal: )
Very funny Mr Geller can i please get my bike back

Will try find out, but I usually leave that kak to my insurance ;)

It will be tubeless cast wheels.
So same as F700 or Vstrom etc.

No one is saying this thing will need to do the Dakar. You are missing the point.

Probably - but at least it is now here and the expectations for pricing can now be established

As I understand it the G310R is here and in showrooms at R65k.  The G310GS will arrive in June / July and will be R71k.

Sat on the 310 R today R62950.
If the baby GS is R70k ish it will sell very well I think.
Wonder what offroad tyres will fit. Tubeless type.

84% of all bikes bought in 2016 worldwide were purchased in Asia/pacific region,and most of those are 300cc or less. Maybe manufacturers realise that there is a huge market share that they do not cater for.

Indeed.  That market is huge and growing at an incredible speed.

For many in these regions they are already on scooters & the like. These new 300/400 class machines might just be aspirational range toppers for them...just guessing but hey!
