TVS Apache RR 310 with BMW S 1000 RR livery
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
A TVS Apache RR 310 owner has revived the bike’s German roots by giving it a paint job akin to the BMW S 1000 RR.
The BMW S 1000 RR is known for its asymmetrical design language. The track tamer’s gill recesses on the fairing has been imitated on the RR 310’s paint work. The bodywork of the RR 310 features a combination of red, white and black, similar to the Racing Red / Light White colour variant of the S 1000 RR. There’s a BMW logo in place of the RR 310, and the wheels sport rim stickers for a sportier look.

The key has also received the BMW treatment. Apart from these changes, the motorcycle is stock. The TVS Apache RR 310 is the first product under the Hosur-based manufacturer’s collaboration with the German marque. It is also TVS’ first fully faired production performance motorcycle. The bike draws power from a 312.2 cc single cylinder DOHC mill with liquid cooling and fuel injection. The powerplant generates 34 PS at 9,700 rpm, and 27.3 Nm at 7,700 rpm. The engine works in tandem with a 6-speed transmission. The bike can reach a claimed top-speed of 160 kmph. The main rival in its segment is the KTM RC 390. The RR 310 costs INR 2,23,000, ex-showroom, Delhi.
