I bought BMW 310 GS on 15th Aug 2018 from Kun Motors Chennai, in June i faced the Self start problem, while checking with BMW Motorrad Bangalore they confirmed that the fault is with Battery, and they are having issue with Battery replacement in Bangalore, since I took delivery from Chennai. I took the bike all the way to Chennai and Kun Motors replaced the part on 8th July 2019, They are surprised why Bangalore dealer send me all the way to Chennai since the BMW support is across India (riding 350 Km on a defective Bike).

I see more than 20 riders have reported battery issues in my group. I request BMW Motorrad to find a permanent fix to avoid such issues in coming days.
