TVS has launched the Apache RR 310 in India at a price of Rs. 2.05 lakh (ex-showroom).

The bike is finished in red colour and white racing stripes, which enhance the sporty appeal of Apache RR 310. The official teaser of TVS Apache RR 310 released a few days ago, it is having superior performance, great riding dynamics, combined with a powerful, and expressive design.

The unveiling of TVS Apache RR 310 marked a new era in the annals of the company, according to said Sudarshan Venu, joint managing director (JMD).

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 past year. He was confident that TVS Apache RR 310 would bring the company the 'halo effect'. It also gets a rather unusual vertically laid out all-digital instrument console that also includes a lap timer but looks a bit cluttered.

Apache RR 310 is powered by a four-stroke, four-valve, single-cylinder, reverse-inclined 312 cc engine which makes 33.5 bhp at 9700 rpm and 27.3 Nm of peak torque at 7700 rpm. The rear sprocket too is altered from 40 teeth on the BMW to 42 teeth on the TVS. We started building our premium brand - Apache RTR with 150cc and succeeded in raising the customer aspirations with 180cc and 200cc bikes. TVS claims the new Apache will do 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 160 kmh. The bike also features a trellis frame with a bolt-on subframe.

In terms of design, the RR 310 retains the Akula concept's silhouette but is less aggressively styled.

Being the flagship model of TVS, the Apache RR 310 will get some incredible 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. 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 RR 310 has a kerb weight of 169.5kg and to bring it to a halt, it gets a dual-channel ABS assisted 300mm front disc and a 240mm rear disc brake.
