TVS Apache RR 310S handles Chennai’s narrow lanes [Video]
Neelanjan Chakraborty, Motorcycle Nut, will ride, preferably race anything on two wheels!
The TVS Apache RR 310S borrows the exhaust canister from the BMW G310R.
The Michelin Pilot Street tyres, as spotted on test units so far, offer ideal amounts of grip on standard riding surfaces and also have a decent life. This tyre option could be standard in the TVS Apache RR 310S. First showcased as the TVS Akula 310 concept, the bike has undergone the transition to production form without moving far from the concept.
The powertrain will redline at around 9,000 rpm and is expected to have an output lower than 34 hp produced by the 313 cc BMW G310R. The TVS Apache RR 310S gets premium upside down fork up front and a monoshock in the rear. The tall handlebar and the footpeg position indicate a comfortable seating posture.
Disc brakes will be standard at both ends, and ABS is expected as an option. The all-digital vertically mounted instrumentation gets a shift light as well as a gear position indicator. The front brake gets a radially mounted caliper.
The TVS Apache RR 310S also gets projector headlamps and devil horn (omega) shaped taillamp. The starting price tag of the bike is expected to be under INR 2 lakhs.
