General Discussion / Attention: BMW G310 GS Launched at 3.49 Lakhs: All the Details
« Last post by DC on July 18, 2018, 05:50:55 PM »

BMW G310 GS Price is on the higher side but it is the cheapest it gets to own a reasonably powerful and reliable ADV in India?

After Himalayan, the next motorcycle that had all the adventure enthusiasts hooked onto is the BMW G310 GS. And apart from the roadster G310 R BMW has now officially launched the small GS in India.

It continues with the same 313 cc, water cooled, single cylinder, 4-valve, DOHC engine capable of churning 34 PS of peak power at 9500 rpm and max torque of 28 Nm at 7500 rpm. The engine is bolted on a tubular steel frame and is mated to a 6-speed transmission.

41 mm upside down front forks do duty which have a travel of 180 mm (same for the rear suspension as well). The BMW G310 GS, which is the smallest of the GS motorcycles, gets a larger 19 inch front wheelfor your outdoor excursions. What could have been better is the 11 liter fuel tank volume which will limit the range of the motorcycle.

Braking duties are performed by a 300 mm single disc brake (with 4-piston caliper) upfront and a 240 mm single piston single disc at the rear. BMW is also offering switchable ABS with a button on the switchgear (it is not switchable on G310 R).

Being an adventure-oriented motorcycle, it has a high standard saddle height of 835 mm and going by the terminology BMW has used, it appears to be adjustable. It can be lowered till 1840 mm and increased uptil 850 mm in ?comfort? position. With all the fuel and other liquids, it has an unladen weight of 169.5 kg.

Yes, the prices are on the higher side but we will want to reserve our judgement on the overall product till we test ride it. The closest two motorcycles to the GS are Himalayan (at 1.7-1.8 Lakhs) on one side and the Versys 300 (Rs 4.7 Lakh) on the other. The direct rival to it will be the recently-officially-announced and spied KTM 390 Adventure!

Three colours are on offer ? Pearly White Metallic, Racing Red and Cosmic Black. 3 years, unlimited kilometres warranty is standard on the GS as well which can be extendable upto five years. BMW Financial Services are also offering monthly instalments of Rs 7999 all inclusive.

First of all, Teflon as you have heard is basically a new age material thats been used in everything from frying pans to space shuttles. Its been making its way into paints and other surfaces as a protective agent in recent times. The name was coined by the worlds second largest chemical company, DuPont who is the inventor of certain symbolic products like Kevlar, Lycra and Neoprene.

Do you have Vnetphone V8? I need some information. Do let me know. I recently placed an order.
Your feet are considered to be in the firing line, when you're riding your motorcycle. They are positioned closest to the hot parts of the bike and the road, on which you are driving. Again, when its time for you to stop the bike, your boots require making adequate contact with the road. Failing to do so, your bike might end up in a horizontal position.

This is why your boots are considered amongst the most important accessories of your motorcycle. At the same time, they prove to be one of the costliest accessories, which you must buy for your bike. There are things, which you should consider while picking a boot for your motorcycle similar to other accessories.

So, keep reading on and you'll have all the information available to you that can help you in getting the maximum return from your investment. The information has been organized on the basis of different riding styles.

Sport Bikes: Technically, racers feet are busier than other types of rider. You are sure to find them constantly: Shifting Gears, Braking, Dragging the Pavement, Shifting weight.

Thus, it throws a big challenging to boot manufacturers. Now, their job lies in creating motorcycle boots, which are resistant to crush. At the same time, boots of racers should give you maximum movement and flexibility on foot pegs. Again, you shouldn't overlook the needed comfort and ventilation, while you are off your bike. However in case of pure racing, off bike comforts are given less consideration.

Touring & Commuting: Even if you are spending longer durations on your bike in between stops, you should give more attention to off-bike comforts when opting for a motorcycle boot, which is going to be used in touring & commuting. Apart from being comfortable, they should also be waterproof, which can be useful during long journeys on the road.

Cruisers & Customs: Previously, most cruisers preferred wearing a pair of combat or cowboy type boots. While they are still not an appalling option, you can go for boots that are specifically made for cruisers.

Dirt Bikes: Boots for dirt bikes are also manufactured considering the technical aspects necessary for a racer. Uppers of such boots should be set at an angle for your riding position. However, you might look a bit funny while having a walk in them. Although they are mostly available in black, other colors are also there for matching your bike and riding suit. Of course in case of dirt bikes, the entire outfit will mostly stay covered in mud and color coordination is surely not going to last for long!

So, make a decision on your motorcycle boots by giving consideration to these tips and you're sure to run away with an amazing pair of boots for yourself
