Catching motorcycle

3.8

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.

Long rides

4.6

The bmw gs 310 is an excellent bike! very confortable for long rides and it can take you to places difficult to reach, Its torque will surprise you! very stylish so it steals sights of people when they see it! you can ride it for over 280 km and depending on your driving style, The full tank may last over 300 km.Very economic and a very suitable bike for adventures and for the city.We know bmw is not a cheap brand of motorcycle so it´s good to analize first if you will give the maintenance it needs.However, The 2020 model of the 310 gs corrected few issues with previous models and for you to go to the mechanic with this bike, It will take a while.The abs is simple great! the feature to disconnect it whenever you want will give you plenty of fun! the only con i see on this bike besides the maintenance cost is that, You would be likely to upgrade it to a 650 gs or to a f750 gs in a very short period of time! in general, This bike gives a lot of fun and security when you ride it.If you are thinking on getting one go and buy it! it will give you a good gs riding experience!.

Suspension are good no doubt.

Suspension are good no doubt.But, There a battery issue with this bike.I have bought my g 310 gs recently and have ridden 5000 km.Yesterday while coming from office at night.My bike was not getting started.While horn and light were ok.It happened all of a sudden without any battery drain sign on instrumental cluster.Somehow i managed to call a mechanic with a battery.He jump start my bike with his battery.Next day i went to the service center.They said i need to leave my bike for one day for full checkup.I am not sure what caused the battery to drain out so quickly after purchasing the bike within 6 months.

Premium cars

4.2

The BMW bs6 310 GS is a perfect all-rounder bike in the city, because of its less weight you can filter through very easily. Even getting bike reverse is also easy. Comfort level is compared to bigger cc bikes. You will not feel any potholes at all. I believe the money you are paying for suspension is not for the brand. Even the mileage is good for a bike like this I have always got a minimum of 30kmpl in the city. Bike presence is one of the plus points. Bike maintenance is very high for a 300 cc bike. It's even higher than some premium cars. Personally, I had a very bad delivery experience as well. Was not expecting this from a brand like BMW for that reason will never buy BMW again.

Ride Quality

The ride quality is extremely good thanks to the ultra-comfortable seats and soft set travel suspension. There is a bit of vibration at lower rpm.The build quality is good.The pick-up is also quite good with ride-by-wire coupled with a 313 cc single cylinder engine.The bike is easy to maneuver in the traffic and cruise on a highway. It also has decent mileage.
