TVS Apache RR 310 Launched In India: Price, Specs, Features

Priced at an aggressive Rs 2.05 lakh ex-showroom (the tag will vary from state to state), the Apache RR310 marks the entry of the company in the super premium segment. Sudarshan Venu, Joint Managing Director, TVS Motor Company said, "The launch of TVS Apache RR 310 marks a major milestone, as it ushers in a new era at TVS Motor Company".

The new bike is produced out of TVS Motor's Hosur factory, which has already been producing and exporting G 310 R bikes (BMW version of the new bike) for export requirements of BMW since a year ago.

After a wait of nearly two years since the Akula concept was unveiled, TVS has finally launched the manufacturing version called the TVS RR 310 in India. Spearheading the super-premium foray, the young JMD was confident that "Customers will find it [TVS Apache RR 310] to be a ideal combination of race-craft technology and riding dynamics", he added. LED daytime running lights have been integrated into the headlamp clusters. It gets clip-on handle bars and a vertically laid out digital instrument cluster that can record 18 different diagnostic parameters at any given time. The fuel tank flaunts the TVS horse logo in a bold silver finish on either side.

Chennai-based TVS Motor Company has signalled its foray into the super-premium segment of the two-wheeler market with the global unveiling of its new bike TVS Apache RR 310. The engine delivers a peak output of 33.5 BHP @ 9,700 rpm and 27.3 Nm of torque @ 7,700 rpm and is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. The rear sprocket too is altered from 40 teeth on the BMW to 42 teeth on the TVS.

TVS so far was in the up to-200cc segment in the Apache series. A lightweight trellis frame forms the backbone of the bike. While there is no difference in the rake and trail of the Apache and G 310 R, the wheelbase is 10mm shorter, at 1365mm, and the seat height is 25mm higher, at 810mm, in the former. The motorcycle boasts of a top speed of 160kmph, and acceleration from 0-60kmph in just 2.9 seconds. The RR 310 rides on 5-spoke, 17-inch alloy wheels and gets 41-mm KYB upside-down front forks and an adjustable monoshock at the rear. The ground clearance is also decent at 180mm.

The front outline is precisely like the idea display, the back gets a great deal of recognizable changes.

Designed for the track, with relaxed enough ergonomics for daily use, the TVS Apache RR 310competes against the KTM RC 390, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the Benelli 302R.
