As BMW Motorrad's manufacturing partner in India, TVS is responsible for the G 310 R (RM26,900) as well as the G 310 GS (RM29,900), Motorrad's entry into the sub-500 cc category for naked sports and adventure bikes, respectively.
TVS Apache RR 310 launching today
The styling of the Apache RR 310 is inspired by the Akula concept. In the process, the company has changed and optimised over 100 parts on the Apache RR 310 and tested over seven different fairing designs to not only make it look this aggressive but also to improve aerodynamics. The new Apache powered by a new engine, developed jointly by TVS and BMW, will churn out 34 PS@9700 rpm and 27.3 NM@7700 rpm.
"This shares the common platform (between TVS Motor and BMW Motorrad)". We started building our premium brand - Apache RTR with 150cc and succeeded in raising the customer aspirations with 180cc and 200cc bikes.
The motorcycle has a 6-speed gearbox mated to an engine that boasts of a top speed of 160 kmph, and acceleration from 0-to-60 kmph in just 2.9 seconds. A lightweight trellis frame forms the backbone of the bike. The TVS Apache RR 310 sports 110/70-17 front and 150/60-17 rear Michelin tyres.
With a wheelbase of 1,365mm and a ride height of 810mm, the riding position isn't as demanding as it is made out to be.
Being the flagship model of TVS, the Apache RR 310 will get some wonderful goodies like a dual LED projector headlamps cluster, fully-digital instrumentation, upside down front fork, big mono-shock rear suspension and a big fairing covering the entire front portion. As for the pricing, it could be an affordable alternative to the likes of Kawasaki Ninja 300 and KTM RC390.
