Let's bloody hope so!
At the same price o/r as a KLR/ DR at least the little Bimm gives you something more than a brick to plant your bum on.
Oh...your's come back from the Dead yet after NZ?

LAMs approved bikes from what I can see hold their value proportionally more than larger capacity bikes. There seems to be a better market for resale at that end of the price scale.

What size are the bars 7/8”?

BTW: SW Motech already have a stack of stack of stuff for the other 310 including pegs, crash bars, racks and pannier brackets. I'm sure the GS products won't be far away.

Yeah, stock 7/8" bars.
That crashbar might also fit the GS...there's just nothing to bolt-stuff-to around the front-end.
The rear rack on the GS is a whopper!...but gives enough usable mounting points to fab up some soft-luggage frames combined with a luggage-plate area.

R+GS got different tail-mounts/ layouts.

We can't get over how comfy this thing is...the centre-hump of the seat locks you in, but is easy enough to get rid of by anyone with basic upholstery skills.

I believe Rally Raid Products are developing a kit similar to the CB500X stuff for the baby beemer.
