TVS Motor Company on Wednesday launched the TVS Apache RR 310 at a price of Rs 2.05 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India). The TVS Apache RR 310 is the most important launch for TVS as it is their largest capacity offering so far, at 313cc, and also their first motorcycle to come out of the TVS-BMW Motorrad collaboration, which has also led to the production of the BMW G 310 R and the BMW G 310 GS. The TVS Apache RR 310 began life as TVS Akula concept at the 2016 Auto Expo. Positioned as a premium sportsbike, the Apache RR 310 is expected to take on the KTM RC 390 as also twin-cylinder engined sportsbikes like the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the Yamaha YZF-R3, but undercuts all their prices by a fair margin.
TVS Motors on December 6 launched its much awaited flagship motorcycle - the Apache RR 310 -at Rs 2.05 lakh (ex-showroom).
The model which is going to hit the Indian roads now actually takes a lot from its concept model including the aerodynamic front fairing with a large windscreen. The fairing, however, gets some changes like addition of aggressive split headlamp with projector beams.
While the front silhouette is exactly similar to the concept model, the rear gets a lot of noticeable changes. The Apache RR 310 gets a sleek rear section with seating for two and an interesting LED tail lamp.
The motorcycle comes with a 312 cc, single-cylinder, 4- stroke, 4-valve engine that is seen on the BMW G 310 R. The motorcycle has a top speed of 160 kmph, and acceleration from 0-to-60 kmph in 2.9 seconds. The fuel injected motor comes mated to a six-speed gearbox and churns out 34PS at 9,700rpm and a peak torque of 27.3Nm at 7,700rpm.
The motorcycle is fitted with Thermal Management System with a special gill profile to shield the rider’s leg from engine heat, and aids better heat dissipation.
To accentuate the handling andride experience, the TVS Apache RR 310 gets the race spec KYB Suspension that is tested and tuned by MotoGP experts.
The sportsbike comes equipped with a race-inspired vertical speedo-cum-tachometer with 18 racing tell-tale diagnostics, and a comprehensive post-ride analysis. The motorcycle is fitted with first in-class bi-LED twin projector head lamps for maximum reach and visibility.
It is also outfitted with Michelin Street Sport tyres, and is the first sub-500cc motorcycle to use these. Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) will be available as standard. The motorcycle comes in two colours – Racing Red and Sinister Black.
