The Indian giant, TVS has launched its anticipated fully faired motorcycle, TVS Apache 310 in India at Rs 2.05 lakhs (Ex-Showroom). The price is very competitively as compared to the other options in the 300cc segment. The model is inspired by the BMW G310R and shares a few specifications with the Beemer and Looks much sharper. First, the street fighter had been shown as the Akula 310 race bike at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo. So the bike has taken two year for development. Bookings for the new Apache RR 310 will commence by the end of December.
Engine and Power
The 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 reverse inclined engine has helped centralise the bike’s mass with the engine closer to the front wheel, but a longer swingarm, yet with a short wheelbase. The steel trellis frame uses a split chassis design and is said to offer higher dynamic stiffness and better control and handling.
The TVS Apache RR 310 uses a range of top-notch components, including upside down Kayaba front forks, and a rear monoshock, also from Kayaba. Braking is handled by a 300 mm petal disc at the front, gripped by a radial caliper from Bybre and a 240 mm rear disc, with dual-channel ABS. The RR 310 employs a full-digital, vertically stacked instrument panel with multiple information display, including a lap timer. Lighting is taken care of by LED projector headlamps, an LED taillight, and even LED turn signals. Switchgear is high quality too, and uses sealed and non-contact switch modules, and also features a hazard light.
TVS Apache RR 310 Top Speed and 0 to 60 KMPH
The new motorcycle from TVS can accelerate from 0 to 60 kmph in just 2.93 seconds and go on to hit a top speed of 160 kmph. This makes the new RR 310 one of the quickest and the fastest bikes in its category.
TVS Apache RR 310 Mileage
The RR 310 Apache full fairing motorcycle will offer a mileage of up to 25 kmpl in city and up to 30 kmpl on the highway. While the buyers of such motorcycles give performance a higher priority than fuel efficiency, the new flagship strikes a decent balance between the two aspects.
The TVS Apache RR 310 is set to change the entry-level performance motorcycle segment with a superbly built, beautifully designed motorcycle with superior engineering. The Apache RR 310 will go up against a range of motorcycles in the domestic market, from the Mahindra Mojo, Bajaj Dominar, KTM 390 Duke, KTM RC 390 and the Benelli 302 R. The bike is positioned as a global product from the TVS stable and will be available in a single-spec across global markets. The Apache RR 310 is available in two shades – red and matte black.
