All-new TVS Apache RTR 300 will be the company’s first full-faired motorcycle co-developed with TVS’s racing division.
TVS Apache RTR 300 will share its platform, engine and components with the BMW G310 R.
TVS Apache RTR 300, the much-awaited 300cc bike from the Chennai-based bikemaker, is all set to launch in India in July 2017. Prior to its launch, the clearer pictures of the bike’s production version have surfaced on the web. Designed on the Akula 310 concept, which was shown at the 2016 Auto Expo, the TVS Apache RTR 300 is the company’s first fully-faired motorcycle co-developed with TVS’s racing division. Interestingly, it will also be the first bike based on BMW-TVS alliance platform in India. Besides this, the Apache RTR 300 will share its engine and several components with the upcoming BMW G310 R.
The latest spy pictures reveal that the production-ready TVS Apache RTR 300 has new dual headlamps, clip-on handlebars and split seats. While the concept has the carbon fibre bodywork, the final version misses out it and has slightly toned down design. Rumour has it that the TVS Apache RTR 300 could be named TVS Raptor or Akula 310. However, the company hasn’t yet revealed anything about the bike. In India, the TVS Apache 300 will lock horns against the Yamaha R3, KTM Duke 390 and other 300cc mototcycles.
The new TVS 300cc bike will see a release in July 2017. We will update you as soon as TVS Motor Company announces the exact launch date.
