TVS Apache RR 310, the much anticipated Apache 310cc model, was launched earlier today. The BMW G310R-based model shares a few specifications with the Beemer and looks much sharper due to the full fairing. The RR 310 debuted at the Auto Expo 2016, where it was shown as the Akula 310 concept. The most powerful and the fastest TVS motorcycle is now on sale at exclusive showrooms across India. New TVS Apache RR 310 price starts from Rs 2.05 lakh (ex-showroom). Read on for all the available details on this highly promising motorcycle.

In India, the new Apache becomes the first-ever motorcycle that is related to the BMW Motorrad. We say this as the motorcycle shares a lot with the G310R. While the latter will also launch in India, the TVS motorcycle has its own unique identity due to the very racy looks and a sportier nature.

Though engineered 100% by BMW Motorrad, both the motorcycles are produced by TVS Motor Company at its production facility in Hosur. The new full fairing Apache gets a 313cc, single-cylinder engine that comes from the BMW G310R. Of course, it is tweaked for the new RR 310 to suit a sportier nature. The motor comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheel thru a chain drive. The new TVS flagship gets upside-down front forks, trellis frame, dual-channel ABS, anti back lift, rear monoshockand dual projector headlamps.

TVS Apache RR 310 Price in India

The fastest TVS motorcycle ever is also the most expensive one yet. The TVS Apache RR310 price is Rs 2.05 lakh (ex-showroom). The new bike is the most performance-oriented TVS production motorcycle. It is not only more powerful and faster than the RTR200 4V, but also the sportiest one on a race track. Hence, all the price premium it commands over the 200cc model is completely justified.

TVS Apache RR 310 Design Review

As you can yourself make out in the TVS Apache RR 310 images we have on this page, the new model looks a lot like the Akula concept that made its debut at the last Auto Expo. The biggest differences, however, arise out of a different exhaust end-can and lack of carbon fibre panels on the production bike. Also, the RR 310 gets a dual LED headlamp setup instead of the no headlight full fairing of the Akula concept. The new Apache flagship indeed looks very sporty, which is majorly due to a full fairing, dual LED headlamps, upside down front shocks, split seats, and adjustable clip-on handlebars.

The new Apache RR 310 gets a full fairing at front, which is flanked by a huge windshield and a dual LED headlamp setup. A unique thing about the headlamps is that both the lamps light up even when on low beam. This bike comes with a cast alloy swingarm to, of course, improve handling but it also lends a touch of sophistication to the design. The Upside Down front forks have a golden finish.

The posterior flaunts a ‘devil’s horn’ taillamp. The LED fixtures in the taillamp and the turn indicators lend a premium look to the new bike. The exhaust end-can comes from the BMW G310R. The adjustable clip-ons along with the raised rear seat further gives a racy touch to the bike’s visual appeal. We really can’t find a fault with the way this motorcycle looks. We are really happy the production version looks a lot like the Akula and the new Apache flagship is actually a really very attractive-looking motorcycle.

Watch this space for more on the RR 310. Also, what’s your take on the TVS Apache RR 310 price range? Do you think the new bike justifies its price tag?
