After two years of waiting, TVS Motor Company has finally announced the launch of TVS Apache RR 310. The motorcycle marks TVS Motor Company’s entry into the super-premium segment, both in domestic and international markets. The TVS Apache RR 310 gets a 312cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that churns out 34bhp and 27.3 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed super-slick gear box that offers a precise and sharp race-shift experience. The motorcycle boasts of a top speed of 160kmph, and acceleration from 0 to 60kmph in just 2.9 seconds, thanks to an advanced aerodynamics package that promises the lowest coefficient of drag in this segment. Staying true to 35 years of TVS Racing pedigree, TVS Apache RR 310 comes with an all-new, race origin, light-weight trellis-frame chassis for enhanced stiffness in straights, and flex for dynamic cornering capability, that result in best-in-class riding dynamics.
The motorcycle uses a unique reverse inclined DOHC (double overhead cam) engine with liquid-cooled oil coolant technology. This facilitates a compact layout for an ideal power-to-weight ratio and better mass centralization. The TVS Apache RR 310 is equipped with a race-inspired vertical speedo-cum-tachometer with 18 racing tell-tale diagnostics, and a comprehensive post-ride analysis. The motorcycle is fitted with first-in-class bi-LED twin projector head lamps for maximum reach and visibility. It is also outfitted with Michelin Street Sport tyres, and is the first sub-500cc motorcycle to use these. The new Apache is destined to change the Indian entry level sports bike segment and is priced at Rs 2.02 lakh (ex-howroom).
