It will be the most powerful TVS bike in India. The Apache RR 310S is the company’s fully-faired motorcycle, which comes equipped with several features including twin LED headlamps, fully digital instrument console and clip-on handlebars. The bike is built on the same platform that also underpins BMW’s naked streetfighter, G310R. Powering the motorcycle will be the same 313cc, single-cylinder, DOHC engine that also powers the G310R and G310 GS. Linked to a 6-speed gearbox, this liquid-cooled engine is capable of producing 34bhp of power at 9,500rpm along with 28Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. It is expected that TVS could tweak the power delivery in tandem with the bike.
For suspension duties, the bike gets upside down forks with golden finish at the front and monoshock absorbers at rear. The TVS Apache RR 310 also source alloy wheels from the BMW G310R, which will be shod with Michelin tyres. The braking mechanism of the bike comprises of petal disc at front as well as rear and it is likely to come with an optional ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System). We expect that the new model will be priced around 1.8 lakh and will rival the Yamaha R3, KTM RC 390 and others in its league.
