The TVS Apache RR 310 has been caught on video by Youtuber Ssaajan Manoj Jogia, seemingly delivering food. However, the yellow on black number plate indicates that it could be a motorcycle on rent.
The motorcycle was spotted in Bengaluru, Karnataka. In the video, a circular sticker on the fairing is visible, which could be from the rental agency, as the stock bike does not have that kind of sticker. The Apache RR 310 is TVS’ flagship motorcycle; and is also the first fully faired performance motorcycle from the Hosur-based manufacturer. TVS launched the bike in December, last year. Recently, the brand hiked the price of the bike from INR INR 2,15,000 to INR 2,23,000, ex-showroom, Delhi.
