The BS6 Apache RR310 gets a new colour 5-inch TFT display, smartphone connectivity features and new Titanium Black colour along with new grey graphics. And since it’s a BS6 model, it of course gets a BS-6 compatible engine. It was only last year, the motorcycle was updated with a new Phantom black colour option and a sipper-clutch.
New Colour TFT Display
The new 5-inch TFT display looks lot more sharp and is easier to read, though there is no changes in the display size. The vehicle has also received a new set of buttons on the left switch-gear that helps navigate different functions/features easily. While the new colour TFT display is a much needed change, all other tweaks are quite insignificant to say the least. Read: TVS iQube Vs Bajaj Chetak – Which One Is Better?
The 2020 TVS Apache RR 310 BS6 also gets a new dual-tone paint scheme – black and grey with red accents here and there. The new colour scheme surely looks pretty cool. This means the Apache RR310 is now available in a total of four colour options – Red, Matte Black, Phantom Black and the new Titanium Black shade. The vehicle has also received a new set of Michelin tyres.
The 2020 TVS Apache RR310’s BS6 engine produces almost the same power figures as the BS4 version. The 313cc, liquid-cooled engine churns out a peak power of 34PS, and a peak torque of 27.3Nm, mated to the same 6-speed transmission with slipper clutch. The bike continues to feature 300mm petal disc in the front and a 240mm disc in the rear. ABS too remains standard on the new model.
The 2029 Apache RR319 gets throttle-by-wire technology that helps make the throttle response optimum for all conditions. The bike also gets four riding modes – Urban, Rain, Sport & Track. The bike offers a top speed of 125kmph in Urban and Rain modes, and 160kmph in Track and Sport mode.
Last week TVS launched its first electric scooter – iQube – in India at Rs 1.15 lakh (on-road). And we expect to see a couple of new TVS bike launches in months to come. Stay tuned to IndiaCarNews for all two and four-wheeler news updates.
