    June isn't typically a release month by history is it? We wanted to wait as well, but went Orange instead for now.
    Really looking forward to seeing/riding one

    With new models schedules can be interesting. They introduce a model - say the "R". Then follow on with the "GS". I forget the sequence with the R1100 models except to note that the RS came in May of 1993 as a 1994 model. We bought one - now called Big Red.

    What is the MSRP? The G310R starts at $4,750, so how much more are they adding on for the GS enhancements?

    For the first time in several years, this model has piqued my interested I am looking for another motorcycle that I can use for a daily rider in the city and on fire and forestry trunk roads near my area. Can't wait to see one in the flesh - perhaps at the annual January motorcycle show in Calgary.

    I see the 'R' model MSRP in Canada is surprisingly close at $5,250 CAN on the Canadian Motorrad site - still a guessing game for the GS however which is not yet listed.

    Fuel management would be a possible concern for some as 2.9 gal is an adventure in the making.

    Spoken from learning the same tank capacity on our KTM Duke 390 and less than 200 mile range...fuel often would be my words of wisdom. The 310 no doubt gets a bit more economy on fuel than the 390...but...

    Just looking at the pictures so far, do not see a whole lot of extra bits than the R

    With that thought, I was hoping real close to the Roadsters price...But, just a WAG.
    now adding some panniers and engine guards...well, you know the story.

    I am curious about something. Will the purchasers of the G310 GS be allowed to hang out with the GS GIANTS, or will they have to form their own group called the GS dwarfs, midgets or something appropriate for smaller stature ?

    Nah, they will be riding circles around the dirt napping 1200's and floating over obstacles that slow the big boys and girls down...they will earn respect quickly

    I would DARE say it's not a DWARF! I started a group on facebook already for them and called them the GS Smalls!

    I have a deposit down and am waiting for the first one from Irv Seaver in CA!

    Finally listed on Canadian BMW Motorrad site http://www.bmw-motorrad.ca.

    Nice to see they are calling out a minimum octane rating of 91 RON. In Canada and the USA our pumps show the average of RON and MON (MON+RON)/2= AKI. Since we don't know the MON in this case (somewhat lower than RON by a large single digit) I am guessing the minimum expressed in AKI will be somewhere close to 87 which is 'regular' fuel at our pumps.

    Very affordable (along with high claimed fuel economy) for anyone doing a lot of riding.
