TVS Apache RR 310 with custom dual under-seat exhaust [Video]
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
Verma Automotives, a motorcycle customisation house based out of Chandigarh has come up with a custom dual under-seat exhaust unit for the TVS Apache RR 310.
The stock exhaust looks bulky, and has a civil note. The folks from Verma Automotives have removed the stock unit and have installed a one-to-two custom Akrapovic replica units. From the video, it is evident that the new system adds punch to the exhaust note. However, it is unclear whether the end-cans have enough insulation to prevent the surrounding parts from overheating. Though this modification sacrifices practicality, it does look and sound cool. It is unknown whether the exhaust makes any changes to the engine performance. The bike misses out on the rear tyre-hugger as well.
