A more affordable version of the current TVS Apache RTR 310, minus the fairing and other features
With TVS Apache RR 310 emerging as a popular bike in its class, a naked version of the same could be launched by the company. There’s no official word as of now, but the possibility definitely exists. In case the naked variant is launched, it could go on sale as Apache RTR 310. It may be recalled that Apache RR 310 has been developed jointly by TVS and BMW Motorrad. BMW G310R and the G310GS are also born of the same collaboration.
Ahead of its potential launch, a digital sketch of Apache RTR 310 has been developed based on Apache RR 310. In line with its naked profile, the front fairing has been completely removed. Fuel tank gets extended shoulders, which give the bike a sharp, dominating profile.
This is similar to the design of other Apache RTR bikes such as RTR 200 4V, 160 4V and Apache RTR 200 Fi E100. Other changes that enhance the looks of the naked streetfighter include a shortened windshield and smaller fly screen. Clip-on handlebars have been replaced with a flat handlebar.

TVS Apache RTR 310 will use the same engine as that of its faired sibling. The 312.2cc liquid cooled, reverse inclined, SI engine delivers 34 ps of max power at 9700 rpm and 27.3 Nm of max torque at 7700 rpm when used in Sport and Track mode.
Engine output drops to 25.8 PS / 25 Nm when used in Urban and Rain mode. Engine is mated to a track-tuned 6-speed gearbox. Apache RR 310 has top speed of 160 kmph in Sport and Track mode and 125 kmph in Urban and Rain mode. These figures could be improved in the naked variant, as the bike is expected to have higher power to weight ratio.
Rest of the equipment used for Apache RTR 310 will be the same as that of RR 310. Some key features of Apache RR 310 include Bi-LED twin projector headlamps, snake fangs inspired LED tail lights, 5-inch TFT instrument cluster and drive modes of Urban, Track, Sport and Rain. These modes can be easily accessed via dedicated control switches provided on the handlebar. Colour options include Titanium Black and Racing Red.
Apache RR 310 utilizes race-ready Trellis frame, suspended on inverted cartridge telescopic front forks and gas-assisted swingarm suspension at the rear. Braking duties are performed by petal type disc brakes at front and rear. The bike comes with dual-channel ABS as standard.
When launched, Apache RTR 310 could be among the most affordable 300 cc naked street-fighters in the country. It could be around Rs 40k-50k cheaper than Apache RR 310, which retails at Rs 2.40 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
