In Urban mode, the top speed of the TVS Apache RR 310 is limited to 125 km/h. In Track mode, which can be activated after 1,000 km of running-in period is completed, the TVS Apache RR 310 has a top speed of 160 km/h. The Intelligent Glide Through Traffic feature works on all gears in Urban mode, while the Track mode works only in the 1st and 2nd gear. Riding telemetry can also be accessed via a supporting smartphone application.
A 5-inch TFT instrumentation replaces the LCD unit and comes with SmartXonnect with Bluetooth. It supports turn by turn navigation, call accept (or reject), and ride analytics. Besides that, the display can be extended to an auxiliary screen to allow detailed ride telemetry. The new display also comes with a day and night mode.
The 2020 TVS Apache RR 310's are shod with the TVS Michelin Road 5 dual-compound tyres, which, the company claims, offer the best-in-class wet grip. The BS-VI TVS Apache RR 310 is now available across India via select TVS dealerships.
