    We haven't been reported any battery issue yet and if we talk about gears, shifts are extremely smooth and precise, with a light clutch action too in BMW G 310 GS. If you are able to manage long run for service, you can go for it.

    I am using BMW 310GS which is one month old now and am facing the same issue. gears are tight and downshifting is loud. Louder than engaging 1st gear in a old model royal enfield.

    This is undoubtedly an eye-catching motorcycle. You'll often notice people turning their heads. It is also very comfortable and has "excellent" braking capability. Never seen a bike with such terrific braking performance. However, It does not seem to be very reliable. On the first day of delivery, The bike stopped after 5 km and we had to tow it back to the garage. The next day the starter motor was changed and it was fixed. Point to be noted, The motor of a brand new bike had to be changed in just one day. Ok fine, Let me take that as a technical exception and not be judgmental about that. After all, it's a machine and perhaps bad luck. But no, It doesn't end there. Over the next one month, The bike again stopped several times in the middle of the road due to two reasons: 1. Overheating 2. Taking the clutch and releasing the accelerator. Now, Every now or then I would see the engine temperature reaching over 100c even when riding at 40-50km/hr. When I called service people they said 100c is very normal because 105c is the limit. Just 5c below the limit every now and then doesn't seem normal to me. One fine day the bike stopped in the middle of the road and refused to start because the temperature reached over 105. Though it eventually did start after 20 minutes, But hey.What the hell? it's not a 200hp bike that heat management is so difficult. Apart from this, The bike has stopped several times when I applied the full clutch and released the accelerator. In fact, riding this bike was like a luck game. I hope it doesn't stop! another thing is that this bike has a very very bad low rpm power delivery. It is useless to drive the bike below 4000rpm. At low revs, One wrong gear or a slight quick release of clutch and the engine begins to knock out. This makes low speed driving a very bad experience. Not just me but several people who have tried my bike have ended with a sudden engine turn off because of bad low rev power delivery. The bike though becomes fun after 4k rpm but it's pain below that. Also, the power delivery is highly non-linear. It comes in bursts after 4k and again somewhere after 6k. After the first service of the bike after 1000km, the heating issue was solved and switching off when taking clutch also reduced significantly. One more thing I think could be better is the speed. With my brother sitting at the back, Which is mostly the case, The bike struggles reaching 120km/hr.I don't mean it can't reach more than 120, But the time it would take to cross this speed will require an impractical stretch of free road. So for all practical purposes, We can find it reaching 80 to 90 easily on the Delhi ring road with moderate traffic. Just wish it could be 120 or so with ease instead of 90. To sum up1. Stunning looks and somehow the brand value (really?) adds to it.2.Very comfortable, Glides through rough roads.3.Very good breaking performance.4.Very bad low rpm power delivery5.Speed slightly lower than expectations. Why 4 stars even after all this? well, I think the overall ownership makes me feel a 4-star satisfaction. It's not only the engine you see when we talk of how you feel about owning a particular bike. A million-dollar question would be, If you removed the brand value would I still rate this 4 stars? honest answer, No. I would rate it 3.5 stars. So the extra 0.5 stars just for the ego boost of owning a BMW? perhaps yes. Would I recommend this bike? yes, I will, There's perhaps no competition to it in terms of comfort and appearance. Given the option of a 100% refund, Will I buy a different bike? well no. Out of the box, But I decided on this bike over the ninja 650 which I was initially planning.No it was not the price, It was the feel. Even today I will not swap this with a 650. Just for information a few quick facts: it cost me 3, 50, 000 on road in Delhi with the blue and red colour option which was around 7k extra. I ride in the city and the mileage is 25km/once I broke the clutch lever and it cost over 3k to have it replaced. The first service cost over 7k.
