    It's what I thought. It is "featured" on the landing page, but when checking the price catalogue there's nothing.

    Indeed.Seems BMW SA dudes are foaming around the mouth on this one. They have even taken orders and the bike is not arriving. Of course, if there is a serious issue, he wouldn't tell me.

    I believe the G310GS will be shown at this year's EICMA show in November, but cannot find any confirmation of that.

    At this stage a BMW310 seems to be a bit of a vague mist .....

    Apparantly at EICMA we will see from BMW:

    - K1600B: A bagger, cruiser type thing.
    - R9T: Yet another version
    - R1200GS: A performance upgraded "beast" possibly similar to the HP2 from a few years back.
    - G310GS: A 34bhp baby GS sharing mechanicals from the G310R.

    What bike is this dude riding?

    And that, right there, is what I'll be getting as my go-to-toy. If they hadn't released the GS, I would have gotten the G310R... Might still do it though...

    Yep, they unveiled it at the GS Trophy event last weekend. Beautiful little machine. Wondering when the GS version will hit our shores...

    I am sure it will. If the price is right they will sell like hot cakes, Ford Mustangs and toilet paper.
