Driven by our promise of delivering more to customers than their expectations, TVS Apache RR 310 is the latest offering from the TVS Apache stable - a super-premium motorcycle brand from TVS Motor Company. After much speculation whether a full-fairing sports bike would be issued, TVS has just launched the 2018 TVS Apache RR 310, priced at 2.05 lakh rupees (RM12,939). Being one of the most crucial bikes for TVS, the company has put in some serious man hours, putting the RR through a number of tests like the wind tunnel test for aerodynamics and track tests on multiple circuits in order to ideal its riding dynamics and handling characteristics. TVS Motor's entry into the new segment comes four years after a tie-up agreement between the Indian motorcycle major and Germany's BMW Motorrad.
The new Apache RR 310 looks striking, to say the least. "TVS Apache RR 310 is a testimony to our Racing DNA and R&D capabilities, positioned to fulfill the ever-growing aspirations of the new age customers globally", KN Radhakrishnan, president & chief executive officer, TVS Motor Company said.
Powering the RR 310 is a 312.2cc, single-cylinder, DOHC motor that makes 34hp at 9,700rpm and 27.3Nm at 7,700rpm.

TVS claims the Apache RR 310 can sprint from 0 - 100km/h in 2.63 seconds with a top speed of 160km/h.
One of the features that the RR carried forward from the Akula is the vertical information console-cum-speedo which gives out a whopping 18 racing diagnostics and comprehensive post-ride analysis. The Thermal Management System on the motorcycle is fitted with a special gill profile to shield the rider's leg from engine heat, and aids better heat dissipation.
