TVS Motor Company today announced the launch of TVS Apache RR 310 in India, priced at Rs 2.05 lakh ex-showroom pan India. The motorcycle marks the entry of TVS into the super-premium segment, both in domestic and international markets.
The Apache RR 310 gets a 312cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 4-valve, liquid-cooled engine that produces a maximum power of 33.5 hp @ 9700 rpm and 27.3 Nm @ 7700 rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed gear box, which according to TVS, offers a precise and sharp race-shift experience. The company boasts of a top speed of 160 kmph, and acceleration from 0-to-60 kmph in 2.9 seconds, owing to an advanced aerodynamics package providing a low coefficient of drag in this segment.
Utilising its expertise and heritage in racing, the Apache RR 310 comes with a race origin, light-weight trellis-frame chassis for enhanced stiffness in straights, and flex for dynamic cornering capability, for improved riding dynamics. The motorcycle uses a unique reverse inclined DOHC engine with LCOC (liquid-cooled oil coolant) technology. This facilitates a compact layout for an ideal power-to-weight ratio and better mass centralisation.
The Apache RR 310 is equipped with a vertical speedo-cum-tachometer with 18 racing tell-tale diagnostics, and a post-ride analysis. The motorcycle is fitted with first-in-class bi-LED twin projector head lamps for enhanced reach and visibility. It is the first sub-500cc motorcycle in India to come shod with Michelin Street Sport tyres.
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. To improve the handling and ride experience, the bike gets the race-spec KYB suspension that is tested and tuned by MotoGP experts. TVS is offering Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system as standard with the bike.
