I would not take my GSA to India. My other bikes, Aprilia RXV 550 or F650GS will be much better. I have traveled well in both north and south. Infrastructure is simply not keeping up with the population and prosperity there and traffic keeps getting worse. I go every 3-4 yrs. Like others said, an F800GS size bike is probably as big as can be used in India. BTW, I am posting from India now...

Great to know about your current visit and i am about to get one BMW F650 Funduro to my stable shortly. The deal is almost closing with a guy from delhi. My vacation will be in Feb 2013 so still couple of months to taste what i have in my plate.

Thanks again :)

Sorry to bring this up again, but check out this thread (even though its not about BMW, but this unlucky fellow has nevertheless needed parts and service for his big bike in India):

Nice! congrats! After you've ridden the bike for a while, and have feel for the power band, be sure to do this quick mod!



Insert a mini ATF fuse into the clutch switch harness. It will remove the restriction from the first 3 gears and you will also lose the T / S mode difference.. it's all S all the time. Just be sure the bike is in Neutral when you start it, because you have disabled the clutch safety switch, so it will start in gear.

Is that a TraX top box? How good are they for off-road riding?

Yes it is a Trax box, I've only owned the bike and boxes a short time now and haven't done any off road riding with it yet. I will say the metal seems "soft" I've put a small pressure dent on the lid from pressing down on it while closing/ locking the lid. For me the price was right so I will not complain too much..

@ Muddysoles,

Ya right.. There was a confusion on color before opening the box even with the Yamaha Guys.. i had some ride.. Definetly bigger and wider than TDM, heavier than TDM.. but seating position is fantastic... once your bike is at hand, lets plan some ride togther. i stay in Ruwi - CBD by the way.
