Watch TVS Apache RR310S (Akula) come to life and rev to redline
TVS Akula 310 is ready to be launched in India where it will be called TVS Apache RR 310 S.
Showcased at 2016 Auto Expo in concept format, TVS Apache RR 310 S has been spied on test once again. Set for launch in India sometime in August 2017, these latest spy shots were clicked by Mani Bharathi and Deepak Raj. The images you see in this post are of the top-end Apache 310 with dual channel ABS and Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.
Sporting many changes from the bike on display at Auto Expo, Apache RR310S is powered by a a 313cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled petrol engine, which also powers the BMW G310R and G310GS. This engine will offer 34 hp peak power at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm torque at 7,500 rpm mated to a 6 speed manual transmission. Mileage could be in the region of 30 kmph.
A larger fuel tank, clip on handle bars, fully digital instrument cluster and a more aggressive riding stance is also evident on the RR 310S. The front fairing receives a large sized windscreen offering sufficient protection against wind and rain. Other features on board TVS Apache RR 310 S are upside down forks in the front, monoshock at the rear, front and rear disc brakes with ABS, etc.
To be produced at the TVS plant in Hosur, Tamil Nadu, Apache 310 will be the TVS flagship upon launch. It will sit above the Apache 200 in the company lineup and will compete with KTM RC 390, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Yamaha R3 where segment is concerned. But talking about price, it can also compete with the likes of Bajaj Dominar 400, Mahindra Mojo, Honda CBR250R, KTM RC200, KTM Duke 390, etc.
With a speedo indicated top speed of 175 kmph, new TVS Apache 310 will be among the fastest motorcycles in the segment. We expect a launch price of INR 1.8 lakh.
